Why Are Warranties Important?

A new roof is a big investment, typically involving thousands of your hard-earned dollars and lasting 25, 30, 40 years, or more. As with any big investment, knowing in advance what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.

What Are The Chances Of Having A Problem With My New GAF Roof?

Based on our state-of-the-art manufacturing process, the odds of having a problem with a new GAF roof are minuscule. On the other hand, while serious problems with GAF roofing materials are rare, if you were to have a problem, it can be as expensive to fix as your roof originally cost. So while the risk of having a problem is low, the cost if you do have a serious problem can be high.

What About Problems With Installation?

GAF’s studies indicate that more than two-thirds of the problems that people experience with their new roofs are due to the contractor’s workmanship, not the roofing materials. This is an important distinction to keep in mind when deciding on warranty coverage.

What Should I Look For In A Roofing Warranty?

Basically, there are two types of coverage that you should ask your Atlanta roofing contractor about: coverage against manufacturing defects in the materials and coverage against workmanship errors.

What Is The GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty?

The GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty provides coverage against manufacturing defects for all major GAF components on your roof (not just your shingles), so you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that, if any covered roofing component fails, it will be covered by the warranty (see ltd. warranty for complete coverage and restrictions). The warranty is available through GAF’s factory-certified contractors, and is a low-cost way to get up to 50 years of non-prorated coverage (against manufacturing defects) on your new roofing system. For the small additional cost of the System Plus ltd. Warranty, this is the best value you can get for your investment. The warranty is transferable to a new owner within ten years of your installation, which is highly desirable when marketing your home.

  • A cost-effective alternative to using cut-up shingles as your starter course.
  • Made with a high-quality, properly positioned adhesive that will tightly lock your shingles in place to prevent blow-off.
  • Easy to use and install, with no cutting on the roof.

Pro-Start® Eave/Rake Starter Strip is a key part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System, and has even earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal (applicable in U.S. only, see reverse)

eave rake starter strip atlanta ga

Homeowner’s Best Choice

  • Looks Better... Straighter roof edges and no messy black cement dripping onto your new white edge metal.
  • Best Performance... Factory-applied Dura Grip™ Adhesive helps to lock down the roof edges at the eaves and rakes.
  • Peace Of Mind... GAF tests show that using starter strips at the eaves and rakes helps to prevent shingle blow-offs and potential leaks.

Professional’s Best Choice

Quality roofing underlayment is critical for helping to prevent wind-driven rain from infiltrating under the roof’s shingles and potentially damaging the home’s structure and interior.

Traditional asphalt felt underlayments can tear easily and absorb moisture, leading to wrinkling that “telegraphs” through the shingles. Competitively priced with typical asphalt felts (pricing varies by market), GAF’s FeltBuster® High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt:

  • Includes a specially designed surface for enhanced walkability and a cooler working surface (vs. typical black felts)
  • Resists tearing on the roof
  • Avoids wrinkling that can “telegraph” through the shingles, detracting from the nished look of the roof
  • Will not absorb moisture, become brittle, or leach oils

Homeowner’s Quality Choice

  • Durable Construction... Non-asphaltic, polypropylene construction for long-lasting performance (unlike conventional felts that can disintegrate over time)
  • A Better-Looking Roof... Lies flatter than typical felts and avoids “telegraphing” of wrinkles, which can detract from the look of your new roof
  • Peace of Mind... Part of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System and covered by up to a Lifetime ltd. warranty when installed on Lifetime Shingle roofs

Professional’s Quality Choice

  • Enhanced Walkability... Special spunbound surface helps provide increased traction vs. traditional asphalt felts
  • Competitively Priced... Per square with asphalt felts (pricing varies by market)
  • Tough Synthetic Construction... Resists tearing underfoot and in high winds
  • Easier to Work With... Super-lightweight, 10 square, 48" (1.23 m) wide roll (vs. typical 36" [914 mm] wide felt rolls)
  • Cooler to Work On... Medium-gray surface is up to 30 degrees cooler than typical black asphalt felts**

*See GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions. The word “Lifetime” means as long as the original individual owner(s) of a single-family detached residence [or the second owner(s) in certain circumstances] owns the property where the shingles and accessories are installed. For owners/structures not meeting the above criteria, Lifetime coverage is not applicable. Lifetime ltd. warranty on accessories requires the use of at least three qualifying GAF accessories and the use of Lifetime Shingles.

**Based on GAF testing with underlayments installed on plywood deck at 90F (32.2o C) ambient temperature and left exposed to direct sunlight.

* * *NOTE: 90-day UV resistance refers to standardized testing conducted by GAF to ensure the product will not physically degrade when exposed to UV. It is NOT related to withstanding water, snow, or wind. While FeltBuster® High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt is water resistant, it is NOT WATERPROOF. DO NOT USE FeltBuster® High-Traction Synthetic Roofing Felt as a temporary roof to protect property or possessions.

Consult local building codes for specific ventilation requirements in your area.

metal drip edge roof atlanta

Metal Drip Edge is nailed at the bottom of the roof edge, or eaves, to facilitate proper water drainage. It allows for the wáter to drain into the gutters or cleanly off of the roof rather than running down the roof edge and down the fascia, which will eventually lead to rot. Drip Edge is one of the first things attached to the roof and should be installed underneath the felt with about an inch of overhang extending past the fascia and hanging over the gutter line.
