With all of the problems that can come from using inferior shingles on a roof, when it comes time for a new one, using GAF, America’s No. 1 brand, and a certified GAF contractor like Ocean County roofing may well be one of the best decisions a homeowner can make. Inferior quality shingles can dry, crack and deteriorate when exposed to UV radiation from the sun. Substandard weatherproofing materials, adhesives, nails and workmanship can leave the roof vulnerable to rain, snow and wind. Even though a new roof may come with a warranty, will the company that manufactured it still be around in 20 years’ time when a problem occurs. GAF has been in business since 1886 and is America’s largest and most respected manufacturer of roofing materials.
With the installation of GAF lifetime shingles and at least three qualifying accessories, which can include roof deck protection, leak barriers and ridge cap shingles, GAF offers a genuine lifetime warranty to the original purchaser of the roof. Very few companies will offer the same peace of mind when it comes to one of the most important and expensive parts of any home. With more than 100 years of history behind it, homeowners can rest easy knowing that GAF will be there if they ever have a problem.
The GAF range of lifetime shingles encompasses virtually every color and design imaginable. Although all of its lifetime shingles are manufactured from asphalt, their appearance can range from slate, to Mediterranean tile to wood shake. No matter what the design or style of a home, GAF has a lifetime shingle that is perfect.
GAF recently introduced the TruSlate premium roofing system, which is made from naturally quarried slate, but at a fraction of the cost of traditional slate roofs. In fact, the cost of TruSlate is often comparable to cheap looking imitations. GAF has gone one step further by replacing the unseen piece of slate normally tucked under the one on top of it with a high-tech waterproofing material. Because of this unique design, TruSlate can be installed on virtually any roof.
These are just a few examples of the many quality products available from GAF. Others include ductwork, fiber cement siding, Weatherside to replace old asbestos siding, ornamental iron and a full range of commercial roofing products. Whatever homeowners’ needs, their first phone call should be to a GAF-approved contractor to talk about the many options available.

Term explained by roofing company Fortified Roofing, Ocean County NJ:
The vast majority of shingles in the US are manufactured from fiberglass asphalt. Over time, the hydrocarbons in the shingles will begin to soften in the sun and get washed out by the rain. When this happens, the nail heads are exposed and water can begin to seep in. At that point, the entire roof must be replaced.
Question and answer from Ocean County roofing experts Fortified Roofing:
What sort of roof should a homeowner have installed?
Generally speaking, homeowners should buy the best quality roof they can afford. Saving money in the short term will cost them more in the long term, whether it’s the eventual replacement of the roof or loss of resale value for the house. As far as the type is concerned, these days the kind of roof installed is limited only by imagination. Some housing associations have strict standards as do areas of historic interest.
