GAF and Designing Spaces Team Up for Ugliest Roof Contest

GAF, North America’s largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer, and the Lifetime Network’s Designing Spaces show are co-sponsoring the “Ugly Roof Makeover” contest, “A tribute to the great American homeowner.” To enter the contest, between July 8 and August 12, 2011, current homeowners who are 18 years of age or older and are legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia can upload photos of their ugly roofs along with a short story on why they need a new roof at www.gaf.com

GAF will select a Winner who will receive an entire new roofing system valued at up to $15,000, and the installation of their roof will be featured in a segment of Designing Spaces, a half-hour informative series that guides viewers on how to make their homes more beautiful and functional. 

 “A home’s roofing and ventilation system is critical to the longevity of the house itself, and we’re excited to be able to contribute the highest quality products to a house that is badly in need,” stated Paul Bromfield, senior vice president of marketing at GAF. 

“Protecting and beautifying your greatest investment is top of mind for every homeowner today, and roofing is a large part of that. We are excited to be working with GAF again on Designing Spaces, and believe that this initiative will be as exciting for our audience as our last collaboration.” said Scott Moss Vice-President of Partnership Development.
