WAYNE, NJ – GAF, North America's largest roofing manufacturer, is proud to have been featured on The All-American Cottage, a 2,900-square-foot classic style home at Ruskin Square in Greenville, South Carolina.
Sponsored by Southern Living and This Old House, the exterior of the home features LP siding on a brick foundation, and approximately 97% of the products used in construction were made in the United States. Exterior finishes include GAF's Sienna™ Lifetime Designer Shingles installed by Allcon Roofing. The home was included in the print and web pages of Southern Living and This Old House magazines.
Sienna™ Lifetime Designer Shingles introduce a unique diamond-shaped design with artisan-crafted shapes and a dimensional look that provides a refined beauty unmatched by typical shingles. Their rich appearance and clean lines add distinction to any home—at a fraction of the cost of traditional slate or wood shakes. Sienna™ Shingles offer Old World elegance and are available in four custom colors. As with all options in the Lifetime Designer Shingles Value Collection, Sienna™ is a luxurious and affordable alternative to standard architectural shingles.
All of GAF's Lifetime Shingles incorporate GAF's proprietary Advanced ProtectionŽ Technology, which results in shingles that offer improved performance—including superior durability and wind resistance—while reducing the use of precious natural resources. The use of GAF's Dura Grip™ Adhesive means that each shingle is sealed tightly and there is a reduced risk of shingle blow-off. As with all GAF Lifetime Shingles, they pass ASTM's two toughest wind tests, ASTM D3161 Class F 110 mph and ASTM D7158 Class H 150 mph, and carry GAF's Lifetime limited warranty.
