The Features of GAF’s Advanced Protection® Technology


GAF’s asphalt shingles remain the country’s leading choice for residential roofingbecause of their high-performance qualities. With their Advanced Protection® technology, they provide homes with comfort, safety and beauty like no other.

Here’s what you can expect from this innovative feature:

Superior Weather Resistance

Standard roofing shingles tend to wear down easily because of constant exposure to sunlight. This speeds up their deterioration process, resulting in multiple leaks, excessive moisture and mold growth. But with GAF’s Advanced Protection, there’s no need to worry about these problems.

Thanks to this feature, the brand’s shingles exhibit the perfect combination of weight and performance. They are subjected to 185 individual tests to ensure toughness, flexibility and granule adhesion. In fact, they are the first ones to pass AC438, the first set of tests that predict long-term durability. This is why many roofersare confident in their unrivaled weather resistance.

Impeccable Uplift Resistance

No other products can beat GAF shingles’ wind resistance. They are also the first to pass the industry’s two toughest tests: ASTM D3161, Class F (110 mph) and ASTM D7158, Class H (150 mph). With their proprietary Dura Grip™ adhesive, they will remain in place through the years to keep your home dry and damage-free.

Environmentally Friendly

Unlike other products, GAF’s shingles use less asphalt and limestone without sacrificing quality. This removes unnecessary waste of natural resources. Furthermore, they are part of a recycling program that allows for re-use in roadways. This leads to less landfill waste.
