The Gunner Roofing system: ensuring comprehensive protection and warranty compliance

At Gunner Roofing, we understand the importance of installing a complete GAF roofing system to provide our customers with unparalleled protection for their homes while ensuring compliance with GAF’s warranty requirements.Roofing system infographic

Our comprehensive roofing system starts with a solid roof deck plywood base, forming a robust foundation for the rest of the components and ensuring stability and durability. This base is essential for the long-term performance of your roof and the prevention of sagging or other structural issues.

Next, we apply a leak barrier designed to prevent water infiltration in vulnerable areas, such as valleys, eaves, and around penetrations like vents and skylights. This added layer of protection is critical in preventing water damage and premature deterioration of your roof.

Following the leak barrier, we install roof deck protection, a breathable underlayment that shields your roof from the elements while allowing moisture to escape. This crucial step helps maintain the integrity of your roof, extending its life span and ensuring warranty coverage.
To further enhance wind resistance and provide a strong starting point for shingle installation, we use starter strip shingles along the eaves and rakes. These specialized shingles create a straight edge and secure the first course of shingles, minimizing the risk of wind uplift and blow-offs.

Our high-quality asphalt shingles, such as the Timberline HDZ shingles, offer both durability and aesthetic appeal. These shingles are designed with advanced technology, providing excellent performance, dimensional stability, and a wide range of color options to match your home’s exterior. By using these shingles, we ensure material warranty compliance, giving you peace of mind for years to come.

We pay meticulous attention to installing chimney flashing to prevent leaks around the chimney, a common problem area for many roofs. Our skilled technicians custom-fit and seal the flashing, ensuring a watertight barrier and the prevention of costly water damage.

Proper attic ventilation is vital for maintaining a healthy and energy-efficient living environment. Our team assesses and installs the appropriate ventilation system, balancing intake and exhaust vents to promote air circulation, reduce moisture buildup, and minimize the risk of mold and mildew growth.

Lastly, ridge cap shingles are installed to protect the most critical areas from wind and weather damage. These specialized shingles, designed for the ridges and hips of your roof, not only add an extra layer of protection, but also enhance your roof’s overall appearance, giving it a polished and finished look.

By utilizing the comprehensive GAF roofing system, Gunner Roofing not only delivers a reliable and long-lasting roofing solution, but also guarantees that your warranty coverage remains intact for ultimate peace of mind.

Understanding the GAF Golden Pledge limited warranty: material and workmanship coverage

The GAF Golden Pledge limited warranty provides complete coverage for both material defects and workmanship errors. Material coverage protects against manufacturing defects in GAF roofing shingles and accessory products, while workmanship coverage ensures proper installation and repair of any issues resulting from improper installation.

Some roofing contractors may only offer a 5-10 year warranty, which may not cover all aspects of your roofing system, or they may use products not approved by the manufacturer. By choosing Gunner Roofing and the GAF Golden Pledge warranty, you can rest assured that your entire roofing system is protected by a comprehensive warranty backed by GAF, the largest roofing materials manufacturer in North America.

A fun anecdote: the lottery-winning roofer and your GAF roof warranty

Imagine this: You hire a roofing contractor to install a new roof on your home. A few months later, that contractor wins the lottery, packs up shop, and moves to a private island. While this is an unlikely scenario, it does highlight the importance of a solid warranty that is backed by a reputable manufacturer like GAF.

With the GAF Golden Pledge warranty offered by Gunner Roofing, you don’t have to worry about your contractor’s future plans, as your roof warranty is still 100% covered. And as a GAF Master Elite contractor, we ensure that your roof installation is of the highest quality.


The GAF Golden Pledge warranty offers comprehensive coverage that goes beyond the industry standard, safeguarding your investment and giving you peace of mind. It encompasses not only the shingles but also the complete GAF roofing system, including accessory products. This means that you are protected from potential material defects and workmanship errors for an extended period, ensuring the performance and durability of your roof.

Settling for a limited warranty could leave you exposed to costly repairs and maintenance issues down the line, ultimately negating any initial savings you may have achieved. By choosing Gunner Roofing, you can be confident that your roof is installed by a top-tier contractor and backed by a comprehensive warranty from the largest roofing materials manufacturer in North America.

When investing in a new roof, it is vital to choose a roofing contractor and warranty that offer the highest levels of protection, quality, and service. Gunner Roofing’s status as a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor combined with the GAF Golden Pledge limited warranty ensure that you receive the most protection and peace of mind for your investment. Make the smart choice and trust Gunner Roofing with your roofing needs, knowing that your home will be protected for years to come.
