GAF HDZ Shingle
GAF HDZ Shingle – Standard architectural shingle, more visual depth and dimension and thicker than a 3-tab shingle. Very strong adhesive that bonds well to prevent moisture intrusion and wind damage.
GAF Pro-Start Starter Shingle
GAF Pro-Start Starter Shingle is used on eaves and rakes instead of a standard shingle flipped upside down. The benefit is that this is a special component designed to be installed prior to the first row of shingles and has adhesive on both the top and bottom. This helps the first row and edge of the roof to adhere and sit tightly in place for a cleaner look while helping prevent wind damage.
GAF Seal-a-Ridge or GAF Timbertex Ridge Cap
This is a specially formulated ridge and hip shingle. It is thicker to provide more protection, a clean finish, and a nice profile to cap off your roofing system. Timbertex is thicker and used when replacing designer shingles or existing high profile ridge caps.
GAF Synthetic Underlayment
We use GAF Synthetic Underlayment instead of tar paper. It does not rip or tear, lays flatter, and is less prone to telegraphing lines on the roof. It is water resistant and does not let water soak through. Additionally, it is UV resistant for up to 180 days in case it was exposed after shingles coming off of the roof. Breathable materials are used which allow humidity to breath out.
