Community Matters

How we partner with our communities to bring Community Matters to life

GAF helps provide grants, in-kind donations, and hands-on support to address the unique needs of each community. Through the GAF Community Contractor Program, for example, more than 500 certified contractors have helped to install roofs for thousands of families in need of decent affordable housing.

GAF Tuscaloosa Blitz Build

There’s an old saying that it takes a village to support a family. In late October, it took 75 volunteers—including many GAF employees—working together with Habitat for Humanity of Tuscaloosa, Alabama to meet one goal: making a family’s dream of homeownership come true. The best part? It took just five days.

Contractors coming together for their Communities

Building community and giving back is the goal with businesses that have participated in GAF’s Habitat for Humanity Contractor program. Roofing contractors volunteer their time, labor, and expertise to a Habitat for Humanity project and GAF donates all of the GAF roofing materials used on the project.
