This limited warranty covers people who live in the United States or Canada and are original property owners. It covers only the first subsequent owner if the property transfer is legal. The second owner must notify GAF in writing within one year of the property transfer.
This warranty covers premature ageing of the roofing materials, such as cracking, splitting, warping, and mold. A lifetime warranty for shingles and accessories, non-prorated within 50 years and prorated after that. The 3-tab shingle features a 25-year material warranty.
This warranty defends your roof against wind damage for the lifetime of the shingle, up to 15 years. GAF’s wind resistance protection protects your home from high winds. GAF’s WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty provides up to 180 mph wind protection for roofing products. It includes coverage for hurricane zones, coastal areas, and high-wind areas.

GAF covers the cost of materials and labor to replace any shingle on which blue-green algae appears within ten years of installation. The warranty also covers the growth of mold, mildew or fungus during this period.
