As your home’s first line of defense against the harsh elements, your roof needs to remain intact to keep your beloved property safe and dry. This is why investing in a high-quality roofing system is of utmost importance. With a reliable roof above your head, you don’t have to worry about water and other weather-related damage that can compromise your home’s structural integrity.
Drytech Roofing is one of the few certified GAF Master Elite® roofers, which allows us to offer GAF’s line of asphalt shingles. With the revolutionary Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, you can rest assured your new roof will stay strong against whatever Mother Nature throws at it.
Here’s what you need to know about the science behind GAF roofing systems.
Unlike ordinary asphalt shingles, GAF Timberline® Lifetime shingles utilize a fiberglass mat, which serves as the heart of this roofing material. The orientation of glass fibers provides maximum strength and durability. This also eliminates the application of more asphalt to meet minimum industry requirements.
Traditional shingle technology focuses more on meeting the standard weight requirement rather than improving the material’s weather resistance. This means asphalt is applied to non-weathering shingle areas with no added benefits.
Working with local GAF Master Elite roofers like us means you can benefit from our Timberline Lifetime shingles’ low-profile technology. We use premium limestone content and eliminate unnecessary asphalt fillers for maximum toughness and wind resistance.
Compliance With AC438
The AC438 is the first set of tests for shingles, which uses advanced science to predict long-term shingle performance. GAF complies with this stringent test that measures long-term durability, wind-driven performance and extreme-temperature resistance.
