Innovation

GAF is always working on new and better ways to protect homes, buildings and our planet. We are committed to making our products better, stronger, safer and in more sustainable ways that are faster and easier to install.

Take your best. Make it better. That’s innovation.

With our industry-leading portfolio of patents and product, GAF takes innovation in the roofing industry seriously. And we are just getting started. 

LayerLock™ Technology

LayerLock™ Technology mechanically fuses the common bond between overlapping shingle layers. The added strength at the common bond powers the StrikeZone™ nailing area - the industries widest nail zone.

EnergyGuard™ NH Polyiso Roof Insulation

EnergyGuard Non-Halogenated Polyiso Roof Insulation boards offer all the performance and flame retardance you rely on, now free of any halogenated components - a great choice for more sustainable building design.

GAF Time-Release Algae-Fighting Technology

Specially-engineered capsules are infused throughout with thousands of copper microsites, which release copper steadily over time, for long-lasting algae-fighting power. It’s algae resistance so powerful it allows us to offer a 25-year StainGuard Plus Algae Protection Limited Warranty against blue-green algae discoloration on many of our most popular products.*

* 25-year StainGuard Plus™ Algae Protection Limited Warranty against blue-green algae discoloration is available only on products sold in packages bearing the StainGuard Plus™ logo. See GAF Shingle & Accessory Limited Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions and qualifying products.

LATEST FROM GAF ROOF VIEWS
Women in roofing are estimated to make up just about .5% of the entire roofing workforce in America. This figure is stark—and it shines a light on the tremendous opportunity within the industry to recruit talented women.
At GAF, our commitment to protect what matters most means more than manufacturing sustainable roofing products. It includes investing in our people, our planet and our business so we can work toward a more sustainable future.
It's never good to run out of room. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to the Shafter Learning Center in Shafter, CA, one of the many communities across the country that GAF calls home. That's when the local community, Project for Public Spaces (PPS), and GAF partnered with the Shafter Learning Center to design and build the Shafter Learning Center expansion. The additional space will ensure that the Library & Learning Center is able to meet the community's needs today and into the future.
It used to be that you didn't see many women in roofing. That's slowly changing. Although women in roofing currently make up less than roughly half a percent of all roofing professionals in the United States, that narrow slice represents a growing number of women in the industry.
