* Check ltd. warranties for complete coverage and restrictions. Also note:

    • The word “Lifetime” means as long as the original individual owner of a single family detached residence (or the second owner in certain circumstances) owns the property where the shingles are installed. For owners/structures (e.g., a church) not meeting above criteria, Lifetime coverage is not applicable. See limited warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
    • Installer certification is only for installations covered by GAF system warranties.
  • Maximum wind coverage requires special installation. See limited warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
