Reputable roofers use GAF roofing materials because it's easier to manage the roofing budget, schedule, and roofing materials when all products come from one roofing manufacturer. This results in a more seamless experience and lower costs for homeowners.

GAF Roofing Systems manufactures a wide range of styles and colors, accentuating any home's beauty and value in any climate. This combination of reasons makes it possible for professional roofers to achieve the levels of satisfaction required by the most demanding homeowners.

This blog will discuss some of the top reasons professional roofing contractors use GAF roofing materials in roofing solutions.

GAF Has a Price Option for Each Budget

Various factors will contribute to how much your shingle installation or roof replacement project costs. Remember that these are current average prices, so they may differ based on the size and shape of your roof or the area you live in.

  • GAF Royal Sovereign shingles are the typical three-tab shingles used by the brand and are currently the most economical.
  • GAF Timberline shingles are the typical dimensional GAF shingles used by the brand and are one of the average-cost shingles you can buy for your roofing project.
  • GAF Timberline Ultra HD shingles are the typical highest-quality dimensional GAF shingle used by the brand and are a bit more expensive than the average GAF Timberline shingles.
  • GAF Woodland shingles are the typical designer GAF shingles used by the brand. With the elegant appearance of European hand-cut shingles, they are the most expensive and, at the same time, the ones that add the most value to the home.
