One of the things we love about partnering with GAF is the fact that they are always producing innovative products that will help us to serve our customers better. From the advanced mat to the Glenwood super heavy weight shingle there is a consistent history of new technology released into the roofing world. The product we would like to feature today has been around for a while, it is however newly available to Washington State where we serve our community of customers. We would like to introduce you to the GAF Armorshield II roofing shingle.
What Makes The ArmorShield II Roofing Shingle So Special?
The simplest way to describe why the Armorshield shingle is such a good product is to explain the two process options that are used to make a roofing shingle. Those two processes are oxidized asphalt processing or polymer asphalt processing. Oxidized asphalt is the process of blowing air into the asphalt product which in essence ages it and and brings it to a workable temperature. The side affect of blowing or oxidizing the asphalt is that it can become brittle (in comparison to its modified counterpart). Oxidized asphalt comes out of the hopper so to speak aged with less life to offer. It also has the propensity to lose granules faster than modified asphalt. Modified asphalt on the other hand is a blend of rubber into the asphalt. The rubberize content makes it flexible and increases its resistance to impact from hail, tree branches and any other type of foreign object. In our case here in Washington State SBS modified shingles retain granules longer than standard asphalt. Granules protect the asphalt, which is the water shedding aspect of the shingle. The modified shingles there fore last longer and provide longer roof life for our customers. Below you will find more information about the GAF Armorshield II shingle.
