  • How do I decide what shingle to choose?

    The choice of shingle is a personal one unless there are restrictive covenants in your area that make the choice for you. Often, storm damage leads to the homeowner asking this question. They don't just wake up and decide to change their roof. Usually, a big hail storm will have struck the Dallas Fort Worth area and now they are deciding what to choose, or perhaps a big storm has revealed leakage. The main concerns I see are:

    • Cost: for many people, this is of overriding importance to them. A three tab shingle will of course be the least expensive way to go, but will not have the curb appeal of a higher grade product.
    • Value: this is where other factors enter the equation. For most people, a shingle like the GAF Timberline will represent the best value with excellent long term wearability and good looks.
    • Color: "I saw a house that really had a great looking color on the roof; can you match it?" When I hear this, it usually means a homeowner saw a designer color roof that caught their eye.
    • Resale value: "I really do not want to spend much as I'm planning to sell soon." Look around at your neighbors' homes. If they have three tab roofs, it certainly will not make sense to put up a designer shingle in the neighborhood, and vice versa.
    • Insurance settlement: The insurance company will pay to restore your home to what it was. They will not pay for shingle upgrades.

      GAF Timberline Laminated Shingles

      • The Timberline series is a tremendous value shingle. Timberline shingles are produced by GAF Materials Corporation locally. They have great looks, outstanding durability and a price that doesn't break the bank.

        Timberline shingles are very popular here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. They are manufactured in Dallas.

        The main products of GAF are its line of Timberline shingles. These shingles are the most popular of the shingles they produce as they provide an excellent mix of quality and price and appeal to the middle- and higher-end neighborhoods.

        There are other singles in the GAF product line with a richer designer look (beauty is in the eye of the beholder), although they’re considerably more expensive than Timberline shingles, and are marketed toward the luxury housing market where money is not an issue. They have names like Country Mansion and Grand Slate.

        Timberline shingles are good looking. They are designed to be long lasting and, when you consider they may last 30 or more years compared to wood shakes and similar, you can understand why Timberline shingles are a preferred brand by Americans from all over the country.

        I have personally seen what hail does to roofs on hundreds of occassions. I can tell you that the GAF Timberline shingles survive hail storms far better than many other brands. If all the homes had them now, our business would certainly suffer. And we are not talking the Class Four shingles designed specifically for hail areas, such as the Timberline ArmorShield impact resistant shingles or the Timberline Ultra HD High Definition shingles. The Timberline shingles are just plain tough performers.
