Why We Choose GAF For Roof Replacements
In Northern VA And Maryland
Exemplary Performance, Unrivaled Innovation, And Remarkable Resilience
We can’t say it enough, and we can’t say it strongly enough. We love GAF. But not because it makes our lives easier. Because it makes YOUR life easier – tenfold.
A statement we’d make in a court of law, at that.
We know unshakable confidence like that in a manufacturer may seem a little too emphatic, but hear us out – it’s for good reason. And their storied, 130-plus year history of roofing manufacturing success is just one of those reasons.
- Timberline® Series (including Timberline HDZ®, Timberline Ultra HD®, and Timberline CS Series®) – High-quality architectural shingles with many innovative and first-time features.

- ArmorShield™ II – An alligator-skin tough line of shingles designed with impact resistance to protect against hail and other naturally occurring debris.
- LayerLock™ Technology – A technology using precise cuts and fittings to provide increased durability and wind resistance where other shingles fall short.
- Dura Grip™ Adhesive – A strong adhesive used in GAF shingles to ensure they remain even more firmly in place, even in the high winds that make their way inland to the DMV area.
And the best part about GAF roofing? What their entire SYSTEMS have to offer.
It’s Not Just About Your Roof’s Shingles, It’s About Your Roof’s SYSTEM
It’s What’s “Under The Hood”
Every roofing manufacturer on the planet makes at least a decent-looking asphalt shingle. But few have engineered a complete roofing system the way GAF has.
GAF’s Lifetime Roofing System contains a network of perfectly calibrated components UNDER the shingles. These components work in total harmony to protect your home against Mother Nature’s worst moods—for decades and decades. (While looking fantastic, naturally.)
Here are the layers of a GAF roof that ensure powerhouse performance from top to bottom…
Roofs have plenty of vulnerable spots for leaks. Valleys. Eaves. Skylights. Chimneys. And so on.
To protect your home from leaks, GAF Lifetime Roofing Systems come with a special fiberglass-reinforced leak barrier. This eliminates the buckling and warping with common leak-barrier products. GAF’s leak barrier even self-seals around your roof’s nails for TRUE watertight performance.
Top-Notch Roof Deck Protection
GAF’s roof deck protection is crafted with heavy-duty, fiberglass-reinforced synthetic materials.
GAF’s synthetic underlayment is much, much more durable than the organic felts many roofing manufacturers make. It won’t become brittle or break down as the years go on. It provides your home with true, unmitigated protection… 24/7/365.
Genuine Starter Strip Shingles
Starter shingles are where many roofers cut corners to save on costs. Instead of using real starter shingles, they cut up and install cheap three-tab shingles. These “imposter” starter shingles cause your main shingles (the ones you can see) to blow away in high winds. Not good!
At Milcon Design & Build, we only use GAF’s authentic starter strip shingles. They’re made with a proprietary adhesive that grips your main shingles… and locks them firmly in place.
Asphalt Shingles That STAY Stunning
GAF manufactures multiple lines of architectural asphalt roofing shingles that look positively stunning. You’ll have zero trouble finding the right style and color.
To make certain your shingles remain gorgeous for decades, GAF uses the more durable materials in the industry. They put their shingles through over 150 tests for strength, longevity, and weather resistance. When it comes to GAF shingles, beauty doesn’t fade.
Proper Attic Ventilation
Attic ventilation is probably the most overlooked part of a roof installation. And that’s a BIG problem. An improperly vented attic can lead to rot, mold, and lower energy efficiency in your home.
GAF manufactures the most comprehensive set of attic ventilation products in the industry. At Milcon Design & Build, we perform an attic assessment to determine your home’s specific ventilation needs.
Then we install the right products to ensure proper airflow in your attic.
The Ever-Important Drip Edge
Drip edges – integral to GAF roofing solutions – provide excellent protection against water damage. They adeptly direct runoff away from the fascia and into the gutters. With superior functionality, GAF drip edges surpass standard roofing solutions in shielding your home. Besides practicality, they add to your home’s aesthetics, providing a clean, finished appearance that complements GAF’s wide range of architectural styles.
The Final Touch: Hip & Ridge Cap Shingles
Last but not least are the hip and ridge cap shingles. These provide protection for your roof’s hips and ridges—while adding beautiful depth and dimension.
GAF offers multiple lines of hip and ridge cap shingles. And its thinnest line is still 195% thicker than the three-tab shingles most roofers use for hips and ridges. They are the perfect complement to architectural shingles.
