Premium Roof Shingle Types for Your Home

So, what makes a premium shingle? A high-quality GAF shingle is typically a composition shingle made of asphalt, fiberglass mat, and ceramic-coated granules. But it’s really the legendary craftsmanship of GAF shingles trusted by 1 in 4 American homes that makes them special.

There is a wide selection of GAF shingle types available to match your price point and sense of style:

    • Three-tab: This common roof shingle type provides a consistent, flat appearance. GAF manufactures each shingle with a single layer of fiberglass coated with asphalt and cut into three equal tabs. The three-tab is an economical solution for your home.
    • Architectural: Architectural shingles are a luxury asphalt shingle type that GAF offers in several different proprietary color blends and enhanced shadow effects such as Timberline HDZ, Timberline ULTRA HD, Timberline American Harvest Blend, Timberline Natural Shadow, and Timberline Cool Series. Rather than the three-tab shingle option, these shingles feature variations for a three-dimensional appearance. They take the flair and style of your roof to the next level!
    • Designer: These composition shingles are also made with asphalt but come with a wide selection of styles and colors. There are also types designed to look like cedar, slate, or wood shake shingles with durability and lifespan of asphalt.

A tool is only as good as the experts who use it to upgrade the appearance and safety of your home. That’s why you need a Master Elite certified contractor to install whatever asphalt shingle type you choose.
