Best Roofing Shingles For Tacoma Wa

What Are The Best Roofing Shingles For Tacoma, WA 

There are many types of roofing shingles and manufacturers to choose from. Everybody seems to have their pitch as to why their shingle is the best and or why they install a specific type of shingle in Tacoma. I would like to present a case for what I believe is the best roofing shingle based on recent technological advancements and industry leadership. This is my opinion as a Tacoma roofing contractor with over 20 years of experience. For a free estimate or more information call today at 253-445-8950. 

My Case For GAF Timberline HD Roofing Shingles

I want to preface my following support for GAF roofing shingles by saying I do install other shingles when requested by the home owner. In the past I have used one manufacturer or the other for seasons so I have a pretty wide base of experience with just about every type of roofing shingle out there. My company was an ELK "Peak Performance" roofing contractor before the merger with GAF. My decision to make a heavy commitment to the GAF roofing corporation is based on a change they made to their shingle and warranties in 2011. Here are the facts that set their shingles apart in a nutshell: 

1) They released the first ever limited lifetime roofing shingle into the market.

2) They were the first to offer the 50 year limited warranty on their architectural laminate shingles based on the advances mat technology and extensive testing their shingles underwent.

3) After the extreme shingle testing their shingles passed all of the underwriters laboratory's greatest testing method proving their new shingle to be the best on the market and worthy of the 50 year warranty. 

4) Other roofing manufacturers offer limited lifetime shingles based only on the fact that they had to be able to keep up with the Jones's so to speak. They made no changes to their mat to justify the extended warranties. 

5) GAF offers the best system warranties on the market when installed by a certified contractor or Master Elite contractor. The Golden Pledge warranty offers 100% coverage on ALL roofing components for 50 years,  25 year manufacturer backed labor and workmanship coverage, all dump fees, tear-off fees and is transferable to the next owner 1 time for free! 

6) GAF/ELK has been in the roofing manufacturing business for 125 years and is the largest manufacturer in America. 

7) Their contractor programs are very selective. For instance there are only 15 GAF Master Elite contractors in Washington that can offer the Golden Pledge warranty. Master Elite contractors have gone through stringent approval regulations and testing to qualify making them a very safe choice for a Tacoma Roofing Contractor.
