Why GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingles Are Superior

In a perfect world, asphalt shingles are not that heavy and perform at a high level whatever the weather. In the real world, they don’t exist… until recently.

Shingle Roofing

GAF, North America’s leading roofing brand, is the first manufacturer whose asphalt shingles have passed two of the industry’s toughest wind resistance tests. It addition, its shingles have also met the requirements of AC438—the first series of tests that predict long-term performance using advanced science. These “torturous” tests would have been too much for old-fashioned products, but not for GAF’s. Thanks to its Advanced Protection® Technology, its asphalt roofing shingles offer the best trade-off between weight and performance.

Here’s why:

Proprietary Glass Fiber Orientation

One of the reasons All States Home Improvement chose to install GAF products is because of its low-profile shingle technology. To maximize strength and durability, it features a proprietary orientation of glass fibers to meet industry requirements while minimizing weight. In the old days, shingles have excessive asphalt content to be strong, getting inevitably heavier in the process.

Smart Asphalt Application Process

GAF optimizes the critical top layer of roofing shingles to deliver exceptional, long-term performance against the elements. Before, manufacturers apply asphalt at the bottom part too, which are non-weathering areas. In turn, the shingles gain more weight without necessarily getting more resilient against severe weather.

Premium Limestone Optimization

Limestones are fillers mixed with asphalt to bind all components. Excessive use of fillers only affects weight but doesn’t improve performance. Worse, extreme application of limestone increases the chances of shingle cracking.

After extensive research, GAF has found a way to optimize the use of premium limestones. As a result, its asphalt shingles can resist strong winds, intense heat, and other harsh elements.

Superior Adhesive Solution

A key component to GAF’s Advanced Protection Technology is the proprietary Dura Grip™ Adhesive. It seals roofing products tightly, allowing every GAF asphalt shingle to remain in place against wind speeds of up to 150 MPH. Old-fashioned shingles usually don’t pass the industry’s most stringent wind resistance tests.
