Benefits of GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology

GAF has taken shingle manufacturing to the next level with Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology for better roof performance. Here’s what separates GAF asphalt roofing shingles from the rest:

Benefits of GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology

Fiberglass Mat

Unlike traditional roofing shingles, GAF asphalt shingles include a proprietary orientation of glass fibers for superior strength and durability. With this sophisticated technology, we eliminate the need to add more asphalt, which can cause stress to your decking.

Asphalt

Choosing GAF asphalt roofing shingles means better waterproofing performance. The advanced shingle manufacturing process allows optimization of the top layer to shield your home from the elements.

Filler

Traditional asphalt shingles often have unnecessary fillers to artificially increase shingle weight. This, however, has no benefit on performance. GAF asphalt shingles, on the other hand, contain premium limestone mixed with asphalt to bind components, which helps boost toughness and wind resistance.

Adhesive

Your residential roofing system should remain intact even when faced with torrential rainfall, high wind and debris impact. Thanks to GAF DuraGrip™ adhesives, you can rest assured your asphalt shingles will remain unfazed for many years.

Passing All Requirements for AC438

AC438 is the first set shingle test that uses cutting-edge science to predict long-term roofing performance based on exposure to sun, wind-driven rainfall and extreme temperatures. Our asphalt roofing products have passed this stringent test, which means they can withstand whatever Mother Nature brings.

Eco-Friendliness

Many homeowners are shifting to sustainable construction materials to avoid adding to the bulk of landfill waste when the time comes to replace those materials. With GAF roofing systems, you can help protect the environment, as we use recyclable materials, which can be reused for roadway projects.
