A roof can account for 40% of your home’s curb appeal making your home more beautiful and increasing its resale value. A GAF roofing system featuring Cool Series Shingles not only add beauty to your home, but help reflect the sun’s heat off of your roof, keeping it out of your home and attic.
Get a New Roof You Can Trust, Added Energy Efficiency, and Improved Curb Appeal.
First, a GAF roofing system gives your home protection. Installing GAF’s extra thick shingles on top of its patented TIGERPAW roof deck protection will give your home the extra protection it needs from nature’s forces. The TigerPaw roof deck protection removes twice as much damaging moisture as traditional felt decks, and GAF’s Cobra Exhaust Venting system allows your new roof to both vent properly and eliminate those unsightly whirlybirds. All of this greatly extends the life of your roof and provides much greater protection for your home.
Second, a GAF Roofing system provides Energy Savings. GAF Cool Series Shingles feature specifically designed roofing granules that reflect the suns rays. Because the heat from the sun is being reflected instead of absorbed like other traditional shingles, less heat will transfer into your attic. Keeping your home cooler and your energy cost down.
And the most noticeable benefit is beauty. GAF’s patented “High Definition” color blend technology uses a state-of-the-art feathering technique, giving your home the stunning look you can be proud of.
How Cool Series Shingles Work
Roofing granules give a shingle its unique look and tone. But traditionally, the granules have only been selected for texture.
Our cool shingle process, uses special proprietary cool granules with unique formulas that make the granules, and our our shingles, highly reflective for IR and UV light. These special granules reflect heat and light to lower the roof temperature to help you feel cool.
In addition to reflectivity, our granules and shingles are also treated against algea and made extra thick to increase lifespan.
Because A Roof Is More Than Shingles
A roof is more than shingles, and that’s why a GAF Roofing system includes improved roof decking AND superior ventilation. When you treat a roof as a system, you end up with a better, longer lasting roof.
And then there’s the natural advantage of Cool Series Shingle’s reflectivity and added energy efficiency.
Now, to be perfectly honest, the added energy efficiency isn’t a good enough reason to replace a perfectly functional roof. But if your home already needs a new roof and you can get PACE funding for that roof it contributes to energy efficiency, then it just makes sense to put in place a superior and energy efficient roofing system.
This IS a great option, but it ISN’T the product for a homeowner buying based strictly on Energy Savings ROI
Quite simply, while a GAF Roofing system will certainly help lower your utility bill, the impact won’t “pay for itself” through energy savings. In other words, if you don’t actually need a new roof, or if your old roof isn’t nearing the end of its service, life, this may not be the product or service for you.
But if you DO need a new roof now or in the next few years, then a GAF Roofing System is a brilliant product to add onto your AGILE Energy Remodel. You’ll get the energy benefits, you’ll get a superior long-lasting roof, and you’ll dramatically improve your home’s appearance and curb appeal.
And you get all of that covered by PACE Funding for the up-front expense, enabling you to write the whole thing off on your taxes. It’s a great way to turn what would have been an unwelcome expense into a win-win-win situation.
