February, 2011 - GAF Materials Corporation, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, has expanded its Lifetime Designer Shingles Value Collection, which features Camelot II, Country Mansion II, and Grand Slate II shingles. This line offers the beauty of luxury designer shingles at an incredibly affordable price.
Camelot II was introduced as Camelot 30 in July of last year, and found such success in the market that the concept has now been extended to GAF's Country Mansion and Grand Slate shingle styles. Designed after their Lifetime Designer Ultra-Premium counterparts, Country Mansion II and Grand Slate II shingles offer dimensional appeal, striking color blends, durable construction, and a luxury look, yet cost only slightly more than standard architectural shingles. Grand Slate II shingles possess the appearance of traditional slate shingles with a chic and stylish color palette, while Country Mansion II shingles present a hand-crafted, scalloped design with sophisticated colors that will increase the curb appeal of any home.
"Utilizing our Value Collection Lifetime Designer Shingles is an excellent way for contractors to differentiate their business and offer an affordable alternative to standard architectural shingles," stated Emily Cavanagh, Director of Market and Product Development at GAF. "Based on the success of our Camelot II shingles, we anticipate a strong demand for the other styles in the collection."
The Value Collection Lifetime Designer Shingles incorporate GAF's proprietary Advanced Protection technology, which results in shingles that offer improved performance, including superior durability and wind resistance, while reducing the use of precious natural resources. As with all GAF 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.
