If you are one of the many Oklahoma home owners who love the rugged wood-shake look, you'll love GAF's Grand Sequoia® IR Lifetime Designer Shingles.
We'll add a LOT of images for this product, as we think they create breathaking Oklahoma roofs. And, because of the frequency of hail in Oklahoma, we like the fact that these shingles pass the UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Testing. They may qualify for insurance discounts in the U.S. of 5-30% or more (check with your insurance agent). GAF has labeled each shingle with the special information needed to qualify for premium discounts.
This impact test of a 2" steel ball droped from 20 feet onto the top of a shingle, results in no evidence of the tears, cracks, or ruptures that you'd see in standard shingles.
These shingles are not just "pretty faces" - they provide SUPERIOR WIND RESISTANCE! They meet Class F wind rating from Underwriters Laboratories—which is the highest rating possible. And, the Dura Grip™ Adhesive seals each shingle tightly. This reduces the risk of shingles being blown off your roof. GAF warranties these roofing shingles to withstand maximum wind gusts of up to 130 mph! This does require special installation - and Curb Appeal Roofing Construction is GAF Certified to be able to install these shingles in such a way as to maintain their excellent warranty. Be advised: not all roofing companies know how to do that!
Take a look at the homes pictures above and below. These shingles create absolutely beautiful Oklahoma roofs.
