Beauty. Durability. Affordability.
Installing a great roof starts with selecting a great shingle. But with so many options on the market, where do you begin? Shingle composition, style, color, price… all of these are important factors that must be weighed when making a shingle decision. Even then, there are dozens of variables to answer to. The most important one being: “How long will this particular shingle last in a Minnesota climate?”
When we install or replace your roof, we want it to last as long as possible. After decades of experience in the industry, we at Midwest Exteriors MN confidently stand behind GAF shingles for all of our roofing projects. As the leading roofing manufacturer in North America, GAF is the most trusted, reliable shingle for homeowners seeking exceptional protection, beauty, and long-lasting durability.
A few reasons why we swear by GAF shingles:
- Industry-Leading Warranties | When you invest in a new roof, you expect it to last. Unfortunately, sometimes issues arise during the manufacturing process that are not discovered until long after your roof has been on your home. GAF shingles go through countless inspections and years of testing, so the chances of them failing are quite slim. Still, in the unlikely event there is an issue, you’ll be thankful for GAF’s comprehensive warranties. When comparing the fine print on warranties from leading shingle manufacturers, each has its strong points, but overall, GAF comes out on top. Their basic warranty covers 100 percent of any material defect found, as well as the cost of installation labor, for 10 years. It also provides coverage against wind and algae. GAF also offers extended warranties for homeowners who desire more protection, and most warranties are transferable once. Our helpful crew members can assist you in deciding which warranty would be most beneficial for you.
- Excellent Durability | Some people think asphalt shingles are just a low-tech (albeit highly effective) roofing material, but GAF has turned the art of making roofing shingles into a science. Utilizing some of the most advanced design, manufacturing, and testing techniques available in the industry, GAF is able to create asphalt shingles that are engineered to endure. In fact, GAF performs 4,375 quality checks during the manufacturing process. The result? The very best combination of weight and performance that modern shingle manufacturing technology can deliver. Tough, yet flexible, GAF shingles pass the industry’s toughest tests for long-term durability, wind-driven rain performance, and long-term extreme-temperature resistance.
- Options for Every Price Range | GAF shingles are cost-conscious. From economic three-tab shingles to high-end designer styles, GAF shingles can accommodate homeowners with a range of budgets. This is part of the reason why more homes and businesses in the U.S. are protected by a GAF roof than by any other roofing product. The most popular GAF shingle product is the Timberline Roofing Shingle. Architecturally stylish but practically priced, Timberline Roofing Shingles are the number one selling shingle in North America. Made with fiberglass-mesh reinforced asphalt, these shingles offer value and performance in a natural wood shake look. And when installed with at least three qualifying GAF accessories, you’ll automatically get a lifetime-limited warranty on your shingles.
- Beautiful Color Options| GAF offers a full spectrum of colors and styles of asphalt shingles to complement any home and taste. Blues and greens, beige and gold, browns and reds, black and gray – the choice is yours. If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend taking a drive around your neighborhood and making a note of the attributes in other roofs that you like. Be sure to consider the color of your siding and trim. We recommend coming up with a palette of complementary colors with a bit of contrast, while taking Minnesota’s climate conditions into consideration. Our helpful roofing experts will take the time to help you select a shingle color that complements your home’s exterior color scheme.
