The Power Of GAF Roofing; A Lowdown




  • G.A.F. Roofing stands for General Aniline & Film.

  • Aniline is a special compound made of different strong ingredients, including rubber and other chemicals, which strongly shield anything from practically anything.

  • GAF has 130 years of experience in home protection. Mainly, that means they know the ins and outs of mishaps and/or mistakes that can make a roof go wrong.

  • GAF quality roofing will save your Long Island roof from storms & other external roof damage.

  • GAF claims that their roofs are not just shingles. Rather, they are a system, assured to cover your home in all its perimeters.

  • The first thing a GAF roofer does when working on your roof, is take off whatever else was on first, down to the roof boards. The reason being, GAF assures perfection, and the first step to perfection is knowing that the roof is in good condition underneath the shingles.

  • After the previous shingles are uninstalled, a trustworthy, highly educated and experienced GAF contractor should then examine your roof boards, and what is under them, closely, for damage and other possible issues.

  • Once the repairs are made, the GAF protection process begins.

  • GAF warranties require that a roof gets covered in a protective sealant before getting covered in shingles.

  • This protective sealant has a special leak barrier, which seals off any rain entrance.

  • Once the sealant is on and protecting your home, shingles are added to the roof.

  • An exceptionally strong adhesive, produced by GAF, is applied to hold your shingles tightly to the roof, which controls them from blowing away.

  • After the shingles are installed, there is more.

  • GAF installs special vents on every ridge of your roof. What that does is, it reduces moisture in your attics, lowering the risk of damage, including mold and other possible damages in your home, which

  • should be safe.

  • Next, GAF will install ridge cap shingles on top of every vent. They highlight each ridge, adding a touch that can be seen from far away, and they also protect the roof ridges from any possible damage that slips through the initial protections.

  • GAF doesn’t just offer you one or two kinds of shingles.

  • There are many different colors and styles to choose from, so your roof can not only protect and serve your home, but it can add to the perfect dream house you’ve always wanted.

  • GAF offers a “Peace of mind” lifetime warranty, which includes winds up to 130 MPH, enabling you to be confident in the service you are getting, and comfortable in your own home.
