Wondering how to reduce labor costs? You're not alone. According to 74% of roofing contractors who participated in the Roofing Contractor State of the Industry Report, labor costs are higher than ever.
Each year in the U.S., roughly 13 million tons of asphalt material gets torn off of old roofs to make way for new asphalt shingles. Currently, only about 10% of that tear-off gets recycled for use in paving and other roadway projects. That leaves about 12 million tons of waste to get shipped to landfills each year.

It's no secret that high-wind events can wreak havoc on a roof. However, the use of strong, high-quality roofing materials can protect a home during high winds and other damaging weather events. GAF's patented LayerLockTM Technology enables excellent adhesion for their shingles, which ultimately contributes to exceptional wind resistence for the entire roof assembly. When installed with the required combination of GAF accessories, GAF shingles with LayerLockTM Technology are eligible for the WindProven limited wind warranty - an industry first limited wind warranty with no maximum wind speed limitation. This protection ensures stronger safeguards for homeowners who live in areas prone to storms.
