Why homeowners choose GAF shingles

Why homeowners prefer GAF shingles

When it comes to shingles for your roof, GAF shingles are one of the very best in the industry. Known nation-wide for their longevity, warranties, and expert contractors, GAF provides homeowners with peace of mind when it comes to their newest roof. But what are they? GAF roofing shingles are asphalt shingles that come in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes. Not only are you able to get almost any style you like, but GAF provides the best warranties in the industry and many of the contractors that work with them are top-of-the-line roofing contractors. Here at Stay Dry Roofing, we are proud providers of GAF shingles in Tampa, FL and the surrounding area, and offer warranties of up to 50 years!

It’s more than a roof, it’s a roofing system

When most people think of a roof, they imagine just a single layer of shingles, or tile, or even just flat metal sheets. In reality though, roofs are much more complicated. And GAF takes building roofs to a whole other level by creating complete roofing systems! A roofing system is a series of finely placed and crafted features that add protection and longevity to your home. A common roofing system can include three or more of the following features:

  • Leak barriers
  • Roof deck protection
  • Starter strip shingles
  • Lifetime shingles
  • Cobra attic ventilation
  • Ridge cap shingles

When combined, this roofing system gives you the ultimate in coverage, protection, and peace of mind. Also, because the more of these features you have, the safer your home will be, GAF also is able to offer incredible warranties that far out surpass other shingle brands. 

Lifetime shingle warranties

If you are seeking warranties for your new roof, how can you beat a lifetime warranty? When you choose GAF shingles, you can take advantage of their lifetime warranty on shingles when installed by a certified contractor like Stay Dry Roofing. As a GAF Master Elite level contractor, we are able to offer the Golden Pledge level of warranties, including a 25 year workmanship coverage. 

In Florida, having a lifetime warranty on your roof is protection you can’t put a price on. With hurricanes, rain storms and high winds a common factor for us, knowing that your shingles are protected, and thus, so are you and your family, is comforting to anyone. If you are looking to keep your loved ones and belongings safe during our sometimes unpredictable weather, a GAF roofing shingle system can do just that. 

Work with expert-level craftsmen

It’s one thing to choose high quality shingles for your new roof, but another thing altogether to combine high quality shingles placed by expert roofing contractors. GAF products offer multiple levels of protection, but some of the best protection, such as the Golden Pledge and Master Elite, require the combination of GAF materials and an experienced roofing contractor. In fact, the prestigious GAF Master Elite title is only held by less than 2% of all roofing contractors in the country! This is because a contractor must prove that they have the experience, workmanship, and care for their clients that coincides with GAF’s own warranties. 

Here at Stay Dry Roofing, we have been providing families with all their roofing needs for over 30 years! This has led to us being known as one of the leading roofing contractors in the area. We are proud to be one of the 2% of contractors to offer Master Elite craftsmanship and warranties! This certification shows that we have received additional training from GAF on their roofing systems and shingles, and guarantees that we have a reputation for quality craftsmanship. 

Your roof is too important to trust to just anyone

Nothing is more important than protecting yourself and your family. And if you can keep your belongings safe and dry, that is always a plus.
