As a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, King Roofing, LLC is proud to offer best-selling products such as the GAF Timberline® Shingles. These industry-leading shingles are designed with GAF Advanced Protection® Technology. In this blog, we take an in-depth look at how this technology helps protect your home from the elements.
Extreme Endurance Testing
All GAF products undergo more than 4,000 quality checks before being released to certified roofing contractors. For Timberline and other products designed with GAF Advanced Protection Technology, that’s not enough. These shingles undergo several tests that would put other products to their very limit.
Two of these tests were designed by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for wind resistance. ASTM D3161, Class F tests shingles for 110 mph winds, or the equivalent of a Category 3 Hurricane. ASTM D7158, Class H, takes it up a notch to 150 mph, or Category 4 hurricane. We’re happy to report that all of GAF shingles with Advanced Protection Technology passed these tests without noticeable damage.
A different set of tests known as AC438 are designed to evaluate long-term shingle performance in three critical areas. A long-term durability test involves long-term exposure to the sun. Wind-driven rain performance tests are designed for resistance against wind and rain in a storm, the number one cause of storm damage. And finally, a long-term extreme-temperature resistance simulates exposure to the lowest and highest recorded temperatures. Again, Advanced Protection Technology passed these tests.
