GAF, Owens or Atlas

harrycJuly 14, 2009

Getting ready for a new roof..any preference between GAF, Owens Corning or Atlas. The roofer gave bids on OC-Duration and Atlas "Storm Master".

Any advice welcomed..Thanks,

The only brand I am not familiar with is Atlas. I have GAF on my roof in the random pattern made to simulate wood shakes. I would suggest checking with your insurance carrier to get their take. We live in Texas where we have a lot of hail during thunder storms. Since 1990, State Farm has replaced my roof four times.
