Who We Are

View Website

GAF is proud to sponsor EcoHome Vision 2020 for the second consecutive year. Founded in 1886, GAF has grown to become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. Our products include a comprehensive portfolio of residential and commercial roofing systems and a full system of related accessories, all supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Our success is driven by our commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple for contractors, specifiers, and property owners alike. GAF products feature Advanced Protection® Technology, which provides superior durability and wind resistance while optimizing the use of materials. This technology allows us to offer extended warranties on many of our roofing systems.

 
 
 

It’s just the latest step that we have taken to support innovative green-building initiatives. In addition to our successful and ongoing sustainability initiative within our manufacturing operations, our industry-leading Certified Green Roofer™ Program—a producer responsibility effort that promotes asphalt shingle recycling—continues to grow. Additionally, we remain committed to our multi-year sponsorship of ShingleRecycling.org, which helps connect contractors and distributors with qualified shingle recyclers across the U.S. and Canada. We’ve also developed a mobile shingle-recycling finder, available at recycling.gaf.com, and offer options for commercial roofing recycling as well.

If you’d like to learn more about our sustainability programs and that of the roofing industry in general, stop by GAF's Green Roof Central. There you can find a roofing membrane recycling specification, Construction Waste Management Plan, as well as related tools and resources to educate and inform roofers and contractors about the importance of cool roofs, roof ventilation, and green codes and rating systems in general. The site also includes submittal info for property owners and project teams, including the GAF LEED® Playbook and ecoScorecard™ submittal tool. You’ll also find links to a number of helpful roofing industry resources, as well as listings of GAF products that are rated by the CRRC, are ENERGY STAR® qualified (U.S. only), and meet Title 24 requirements. If you’re looking for CE hours, free access to two Green Building Certification Institute accredited courses is provided.

We also support training and green certification for America’s one-step and two-step building material dealers by sponsoring the Certified Green Dealer® Program. The Certified Green Dealer® Program (www.CertifiedGreenDealer.org) is the nation’s only program for training and certifying building material dealerships in the knowledge of green building products and practices.

GAF also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 125,000 professionals. CARE’s mission is to help professional contractors and distributors build their businesses through sales and management education, and to provide product and installation training to contractors, distributors, architects, property owners, and related industry personnel.
