Types of shingles:
GAF offers at least four categories of major product. The first of which, by far being the most popular is Timberline. Timberline has been rated at the number one selling shingle in North America. They hold this title by offering a wide variety of colors to match nearly any home. The sturdy composition is backed by its lifetime warranty which leave the customers feeling secure. This warranty is able to be offered because the shingles are created to withstand the various harsh elements; rain, snow or shine.
The designer shingle was created to offer a higher-end product. These also come in a variety of colors but what makes these stand out is the detail that goes into them. They a textured look option, that can make the roof appear to be 3D that adds a pleasant aesthetic. The other designer shingles can mimic European style roofs, in appearance and color. One of the popular ones is the European clay tile look alike but at a fraction of the cost.

One of them, the Cool Series reflects lite to reduce heat in the attic and house. Others like the ArmorShield 1 and 2 are built to withstand high impacts from debris in the air.

Their final popular shingle is the three-tab shingle. This is the traditional single we all know with durability and style that GAF home exteriors are known for. This shingle being the most economical can protect the home, and increase the value of the home with its attractive appearance.
