Product Announcement from GAF
GAF, the nation's largest roofing and ventilation manufacturer, announces the addition of Master Flow® Green Machine™ Solar Powered Ridge Vents to its line of ventilation products. This energy-efficient ridge vent delivers increased airflow over traditional ridge vents while still providing the superior aesthetic that ridge vents offer over powered roof vents.
While traditional ridge vents and roof louvers can often provide less airflow than powered roof vents, powered ventilation options are generally less attractive, require installation by electricians, and run using electricity which adds to their cost. Master Flow® Green Machine™ Solar Powered Ridge Vents provide up to 25 times more airflow than traditional ridge vents while using solar power to eliminate the need for an electrician as well as any related energy costs. They also look great, with the low profile solar panels blending into the ridge line.
Attic ventilation products are critical for a long-lasting roof. A properly balanced attic ventilation system will help to remove excess heat and moisture, protecting the roof from premature deterioration, minimizing peeling and extending the life of interior and exterior paint, limiting mold and mildew damage, and guarding against ice damming in the winter. Proper ventilation also can help to reduce excessive cooling costs.
Now proudly celebrating its 125th year in the industry, GAF has become the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, with sales of nearly $3 billion annually. The company's products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and low-slope roofing systems, as well as composite decking, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by a commitment to provide property owners and specifiers with the best and safest choice in roofing and by helping supportive contractors and distributors to build their businesses and avoid hassles.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF has developed single-ply and asphaltic membranes with superior durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.
The Company also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 100,000 professionals. CARE's mission is to help professional contractors and distributors build their businesses through sales and management education, and to provide product and installation training to contractors, distributors, architects, property owners, and related industry personnel.
