When it comes to roofing, there are many things to consider. First and foremost, it’s incredibly important that the roof be installed correctly, be waterproof, meet all the manufacturer’s specifications, and that it does its job – protecting your home from the elements.
But a roof also is an extension of your home’s overall look and curb appeal. Up to 40 percent of what is seen from the street is the roof. So when choosing a shingle style or color, it’s important to consider how it will look for years to come, how it will match the style of the house, the overall ambience of the neighborhood, and even to potential future purchasers.
Callen recommends GAF roofing because its shingles offer improved performance, including superior durability and wind resistance. GAF also offers a myriad of shingle designs and colors to fit any style of home.
bGAF was a pioneer in manufacturing a dimensional shingle, the Timberline®. You can choose from High Definition® or Natural Shadow® color blends, for a genuine wood shake look. That has been very popular with many roofing projects we have done.
Other shingle designs include scalloped, which complements the ornate style of Victorian architecture; the clean look of slate for a variety of home styles, including colonial, ranch and contemporary; tile for Mediterranean/Tuscan; and random-cut European for a timeless turn-of-the-century look, just to name a few. The color palette also is broad-based to complement any siding, stone, or brick exterior. Along with the shingles, there are options for ridge caps, also made by GAF so there is a consistent look to your roofline.
When we visit your home for a roofing consultation, we’ll bring shingle options for you to look at, but you can also visit our website to check our Virtual Home Remodeler. The Virtual Home Remodeler allows you to select from almost 50 different house styles. You can click on the roof options and the roof will be transformed to the color and style you picked. You can also experiment with exterior siding colors and trim.
GAF also offers the Golden Pledge® lifetime warranty, which includes a 40-point factory inspection after installation, only given to contractors with who have achieved Master Elite™ status with GAF. Callen is Master Elite, a distinction given to the top two percent of roofing contractors nationwide.
With our personalized consultation, extensive selection process, and high-quality installation, we add value to your home by helping you choose a beautiful roof that complements your home and provides stunning curb appeal.
