What are GAF Energy Timberline™ solar shingles?

GAF solar shingles are an innovative roofing solution that integrates solar technology into the very fabric of your roof. Instead of installing bulky solar panels on top of your existing roof, GAF solar shingles are designed to blend seamlessly with the roof’s appearance, providing a sleek and modern look without compromising on functionality.

These shingles are made of high-quality materials, ensuring durability and long-lasting performance. With a life span of up to 30 years, GAF solar shingles outlast traditional asphalt shingles by up to 10 years, offering homeowners an excellent return on investment.GAF Timberline solar shingles roof

Benefits of GAF Energy Timberline™ solar shingles

There are several advantages to choosing GAF solar shingles for your home:

  • Aesthetically pleasing design: GAF solar shingles are designed to look like traditional roofing materials, providing an attractive appearance that complements any architectural style. This seamless integration not only enhances the overall look of your home, but can also potentially increase its value.
  • Energy savings: By harnessing the power of the sun, GAF solar shingles generate clean, renewable energy for your home, reducing your reliance on the grid and lowering your electricity bills. This energy-efficient solution allows you to save money while also reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Durability and longevity: GAF solar shingles are made from high-quality materials that provide a life span of up to 30 years, outlasting traditional asphalt shingles by up to 10 years. This long-lasting performance ensures that your investment in solar roofing pays off in the long run.
  • Weather resistance: These solar shingles are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, snow, and hail. Their strong construction and protective coatings make them a reliable choice for homeowners living in areas with extreme weather conditions.
  • Easy installation: As a GAF-certified installer, Gunner Roofing can install GAF solar shingles efficiently and hassle-free. Their innovative design simplifies the installation process compared to traditional solar panels, reducing labor time and costs.

GAF Energy Timberline™ solar shingle installation process

The process of installing GAF solar shingles on your home involves three main phases:

Phase 1: Design and permitting
In this phase, Gunner Roofing will finalize the solar roof design, taking photos and measurements of your home. We will obtain local utility approval when required and handle all permitting, working with the necessary authorities. Once the necessary approvals are received, we can schedule the installation.

Phase 2: Installation
Before the project begins, we’ll arrange for the delivery of materials to your home and provide a debris bin if needed. Our team will remove your existing roof and replace it with the new roof and GAF solar shingles. We will also partner with a local electrician to finalize the installation, which will necessitate access to your primary electrical panel and potentially some indoor areas.GAF Timberline solar shingles being installed

Phase 3: Inspection and system activation
Once your new solar roof is in place, we will work with local authorities to ensure the installation passes inspection. We will then submit a request to your local utility for system activation. You’ll receive a “Permission to Operate” (PTO) notice via email, which allows you to begin using your new solar energy system. At this point, you can start enjoying the benefits of clean, renewable energy from your GAF solar shingles.Detail view of GAF Timberline solar shingles on roof
