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.
By the time a potential customer reaches out to you, they've likely already researched several roofing contractors. Your business faces competition right from the start—how do you edge out multiple competitors and close the sale? In many cases, these efforts hinge on a fast response to lead management.
Good employees are key to building a successful contracting business—but recruitment and retention don't happen all on their own. Employee rewards and recognition programs can help you foster workplace loyalty and strengthen employee retention, and there are many ways to reward your staff and crew for the work they do every day.
