What are GAF Shingles Pros & Cons?

It is no secret that GAF architectural shingles are among the most popular roofing materials in the market. That said, is popularity a function of excellent value for money or top-quality and consistent performance?

As you invest in a new roofing system, you want to make sure you know where your hard-earned money ends up. Is the roofing product the right fit for your needs?

To help you understand what you are up against, weighing the pros and cons of a GAF roofing system is imperative before throwing in all your money.

Pros Gaf Shingles

·       Pocket-friendly

Getting the best quality at the best price is a win-win. That’s what you get with GAF shingles that come in a wide array of options to suit varying budgetary needs. If the upscale shingles prove costly, you can opt for the standard 3-Tab shingles.

·       Versatile color options

GAF shingles come in a broad color selection to suit different aesthetic needs in different locations. Within the huge selection, you’ll always find some fresh inspiration to give your home a new look.

·       Highly durable

Made from fiberglass-mesh reinforced asphalt, GAF architectural shingles can provide up to five protection layers. They are infused with incredible wind and impact resistance for the best roof lifespan.

·       Contractor-credible

Most roofing contractors can easily vouch for a GAF roofing system because of the proven quality, warranty, and ease of GAF shingle installation. Homeowners rely heavily on the word of the contractors they hire and this makes GAF shingles trustworthy.

Cons Gaf Shinges

·       Warranty troubles

The major drawback of GAF shingles is the warranty hassle one has to endure. GAF may pass the blame to roofing contractors for the wrong installation instead of admitting a faulty product. The homeowner is left stranded in the process of seeking a refund.

·       High warranty standards

Before gaining access to the GAF upgraded warranty, you must hire a roofing contractor that is ‘Master Elite’. However, not very many contractors have attained this status. You may therefore have a hard time finding the right contractor for an upgraded warranty.

As you shop for GAF shingles or do a comparison of the various brands, ensure you carefully read the fine print of your warranty.
