When you install a GAF Advanced Protection® Shingle, you’re getting the very best combination of weight and performance that modern manufacturing technology can deliver. In fact, we perform 4,375 quality checks in the manufacture of our Advanced Protection® Shingles. The result? No one makes a better asphalt shingle for toughness, wind uplift resistance, flexibility, fire resistance. Some people think asphalt shingles are just a low-tech (albeit highly effective) roofing material. But GAF has turned the art of making roofing shingles into a science, with its Advanced Protection® Shingles. Utilizing some of the most advanced design, manufacturing, and testing techniques available in any industry (including test models similar to those used in America’s space program), the result is today’s most advanced roofing technology — now available to consumers to protect their homes.
