unprecedented improvement in its warranties.
“As a company, we are committed to advanced quality, industry-leading
expertise, and solutions that make our customers’ lives simple - which is what
this warranty upgrade is all about,” stated Bob Tafaro, President and CEO of
GAF. “Contractors will benefit from knowing that they can stand with confidence
behind every installation of GAF laminated shingles. Homeowners will benefit
from knowing that their installed shingles are warranted for a lifetime, adding
significant value to their home.”

2011 is GAF’s 125th anniversary as a company. At a time when Americans are
facing so much uncertainty about the future, you can be sure that GAF will be
there decades from now to stand by the performance of our roofing products. This
warranty upgrade will reinforce both our leadership position in the industry and
our promise of excellence to our customers,” said Tafaro.
