GAF Timberline Ultra or Elk Prestique Plus
I am getting a new roof put on my house and had asked for GAF Timberline Ultra 50yr shingles which the roofer agreed on in the contract. He seemed like he kept leaving subtle hints for Elk Prestique Plus 50yr shingles. He called me a couple of days ago and asked if it would be alright if he used the Elk shingles instead because he could get them this tuesday because he had them in stock in his warehouse and I told him ok over the phone. Now I am wondering if the Elk shingles are cheaper and not as good as the GAF and he is making more of a profit. I asked him if there would be any difference in the price of the roof and he said no. Can anyone tell me if the Elk are cheaper per square than the GAF and which would you prefer as a homeowner or roofing installer. Thanks.
