      "I have a moderate sized house on a very wooded lot in very humid climate. I had a new roof installed with GAF Sovereign 3-tab shingles in 2004. They lasted beautifully, withstanding continuous impacts from falling branches and acorns. Algae growth and staining didn't begin to occur until around the 13th year and when cleaned, it remained clear for at least a year. Amazing given the environment the shingles were in. During the entire life of the shingles, there was no leaking. Due to these factors, I put the same shingles on in 2020 when I got the new roof."
