* The above guide is meant to be a general quick reference document and does not represent GAF legal documentation.  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, warranty term is 40 years. 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 warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
