MORE FROM GAF ROOF VIEWS
Roof trusses provide the structural support for a home's roof, supporting the roof deck material, insulation, and any loads that are placed on the roof. As a result, they have to be strong enough to withstand wind, rain, snow, and any other types of weather that your region might be prone to.
This May, GAF teamed up with This Old House to support their "Protecting the Protectors Contest". The contest was established to give back to first responders who go above and beyond protecting their communities. Watch this video to see how first responders JoAnna, an oncology nurse, and her fiance Andrew, a firefighter, reacted to their brand new GAF Timberline HDZ roof.
Although the GAF Master Select contractor Aqua Seal Manufacturing and Roofing Inc. has a robust team of 100 employees, the workload in the Columbia, South Carolina, metro area always has them looking for more help. As one of the top commercial roofing contractors in their market, they do everything from new construction to reroofing—and their leak detection skills have kept them in high demand for years.
If you spot a roof leak, it could be a sign to schedule a roof repair. It's critical to catch roof leaks before they progress into challenges that are harder and more expensive to fix—or require an entire roof replacement.
When Chad Muth founded Muth & Company Roofing 30 years ago, he had no way of knowing that a service and maintenance program would be one of the keys to his business success. What he did know was that if he was devoted, honest, and had integrity, he could be successful within the roofing industry—and he was right.
The revolutionary LayerLock™ technology, patented by GAF, has changed the game for both roofing contractors and homeowners, making Timberline HDZ® shingles easy and fast to install and providing the industry's first unlimited wind speed warranty.
