Since it was founded in 1886, GAF has grown to become the largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products in North America. Not many companies have been in business as long as GAF and part of the reason they have had such success is in the quality of products they offer. It is this faith in the quality of their products that allows them to offer some of the best and most inclusive roofing warranties available on their shingles and other roofing products.

Types Of GAF Warranties

GAF offers three main warranty programs on their shingles and roofing products. They label them as their base, better and best warranties, with each expanding on the amount of coverage available. Below is a basic breakdown of the coverage on each program.

Shingle and Accessory

This is the base warranty for GAF. It is a basic coverage of the products that are installed without many of the extra benefits that their more advanced warranties offer.

–        Manufacturer defects. There is 100% coverage for 10-years or 3-5 year on 3-tab shingles. Cost of labor is included. Roofing system coverage is available.

–        Workmanship coverage. No workmanship coverage is included.

–        Peace of Mind Coverage. All GAF warranties include maximum wind coverage up to 130 MPH (except on 3-tab shingles) and transferable warranties at no charge.

System Plus Limited Warranty

The “better” warranty version offered by GAF has more options and coverage for both the roofing materials and the roofing system. It includes:

–        Manufacturer defects. There is 100% coverage for 50-years or 20-years on 3-tab shingles. Cost of labor is included for lifetime or 25-30 years on 3-tab shingles. Full roofing system coverage is included.

When hiring a Fort Worth roofing company for a new roof, ask whether they use GAF products and whether they are Master Elite Contractors. GAF offers some of the best roofing products available and backs them with warranties that can cover your new roof for many years to come. However, only GAF Master Elite Contractors can offer many of these warranties. Old Pro Roofing is one of the only 3% of roofing companies that have earned GAF Master Elite status.
