Here at Roofing Insights, we love being able to provide pertinent industry information to roofers. Unfortunately, we are unable to review the products of one of the biggest players in the industry, GAF. That’s why we are extending an invitation to GAF to participate in our next shingle comparison video for 2019!

In our latest video founder of Roofing Insights invites GAf corporation to participate in shingle comparisons with its flagman shingle: GAF Timberline.

in 2017 and 2018 Dmitry and team have made many tests and comparisons among top 7 shingle brands but GAF wasn’t included.

RI has invited GAF to participate but didn’t want to include the biggest brand without they approval to participate in tests.

As a results Roofing Insights has received over 2000 comments on its videos and it public posts why GAF weren’t included.

For 2 years RI would comment that “GAF has been invited”, but comments keep coming in.

According to GAF Timberline® Lifetime Architectural Roofing Shingles – North America’s #1 Selling Shingle

As a result of head to head comparisons in 2018 and 2019 top 3 shingles were made by Certanteed, Atlas and Owens Corning. All 3 brands and GAF have most loyal followers in roofing industry and have installers who swear by them.

In Invitation to compare Dmitry compared GAF to best selling truck (Ford F 150) and raised the question: does best selling means the best?

Dmitry invited not only GAF, but also installers and home owners who is interested to see the results how big seller compares to its rivals.

Roofing Insights promises to follow the best practices of independent journalism, use scientific methods agreeable to all parties and follow industry standards, at the same time roofing insights is consumer advocate and have to keep marketing promises and claims in mind, to make sure products are performing as advertised.

All Asphalt shingles have similar materials and design in them: Ashalt, granules, fillers, tar, fiberglass mat, but it doesn’t mean they built the same. Just like cars make from the same materials doesn’t mean they have the same performance. Details matters the most, and what RI has been looking closely for years are those details:

-Do granules stick to shingles or fall off malignly (defectively)
-Will shingles seal and withstand claimed wind rating?
– Are shingles as heavy as manufacture claims or missing 20% of its weight? If so what gives?
-I nailing zone big enough to avoid installation mistakes?
– are shingles consistent?

Buying roof is one of the biggest decisions and investments for most home owners. Most roofs cost as much as a car.
