Selecting the right manufacturer is a big decision when choosing a shingle roof. When helping homeowners make this decision, Rodney Porr reminds them, “good roofs aren’t cheap and cheap roofs aren’t good.” Rodney, who has 30+ years of experience in the roofing industry and currently works as a Central Florida estimator for Gulf Western Roofing, says he prefers to look out for the best interest of the homeowner. He finds that customers continuously select the GAF Weather Stopper® System Plus Ltd. Warranty shingle due to the peace of mind they have knowing that they are backed by the manufacturer, a certified installer, and the Good Housekeeping seal.
So what exactly is it that makes GAF the manufacturer of choice for so many Florida homeowners?
For starters, GAF is American made and owned. In fact, they are North America’s oldest and largest roofing manufacturer. Their Timberline HD shingles are manufactured in Tampa, Florida, making them specifically engineered for the Florida climate.
But what makes the GAF System Plus warranty so desirable and trusted?
Typically, other manufacturers offer a 10-year shingle-only warranty for manufacturing defects. GAF’s System Plus Warranty, on the other hand, covers the entire roof system for 50 years.
To add to the desire, the 50-year warranty is transferable for 15 years at no charge to you. Which means, we would highly suggest having the GAF Weather Stopper System installed even if you’re not planning to stay in the home for the life of the warranty. Having such a trusted roof warranty in place can only add to the value of your home and create a great selling point for you. In this case, spending a few extra hundred could end up earning you a few extra thousand.
Not to mention, every single component of the GAF’s Weather Stopper System has earned the prestigious Good Housekeeping Seal. Products earn the Good Housekeeping Seal after passing a strict review and evaluation by scientists, engineers, and technicians at the Good Housekeeping Institute. For over 100 years, The Good Housekeeping Institute has sifted through the confusing clutter of claims for you to find out which products perform as promised.
Moreover, GAF’s Weather Stopper System is only available for installation through a GAF certified installer. As a GAF Certified Installer, Gulf Western Roofing has pledged to ensure that each customer receives the best and safest choice in roofing. We are authorized to provide you with the peace of mind that comes with the Weather Stopper System Plus Warranty.
To recap, GAF’s System Plus Warranty, available through a GAF certified installer, covers 100% of material defects on architectural shingles for 50 years and 100% of installation labor costs for the lifetime of the roof. System Plus typically has the contractor providing 100% workmanship coverage for 2 years and also covers misapplication of certain flashings for that same 2 year period. Tear-off costs are also covered if the original issue was a material defect.
