MORE FROM GAF ROOF VIEWS
If you spot a roof leak, it could be a sign to schedule a roof repair. It's critical to catch roof leaks before they progress into challenges that are harder and more expensive to fix-or require an entire roof replacement.
When Chad Muth founded Muth & Company Roofing 30 years ago, he had no way of knowing that a service and maintenance program would be one of the keys to his business success. What he did know was that if he was devoted, honest, and had integrity, he could be successful within the roofing industry-and he was right.
The revolutionary LayerLock™ technology, patented by GAF, has changed the game for both roofing contractors and homeowners, making Timberline HDZ® shingles easy and fast to install and providing the industry's first unlimited wind speed warranty.
Construction planning through to completion can be tricky to coordinate, especially within an urban area, which can present a range of complications. Building proximity, tall building heights, complex building structures, and densely populated areas are just a few challenges that can make it particularly difficult to consider traditionally heavy or large-sized materials when roofing or re-roofing a building.
Well-placed shingle nails are crucial for building top-performing roofs. When roofing nails are positioned improperly or driven incorrectly, the roofing system may become vulnerable to issues, such as punctures, buckling, sealing failures, blow-offs, and raised tabs. Ultimately, improperly installed nails result in lost time, lost labor, material waste, and callbacks for roofers.
When part of your building's roof has a flat section covered with a traditional low-slope roofing material (such as single-ply or modified bitumen membranes), while another part of the building's roof is steep-slope and covered with asphalt shingles, we refer to that as a "mixed roof."
