GAF Timberline Solar Shingles Continues Market Adoption

GAF Timberline Solar Shingles made waves earlier in this year's CES. It proved its point: it was the future of solar energy. GAF's goal for Timberline Solar Shingles was to create a world where "each roof powered homes" through solar technologies. It is steadily gaining traction as manufacturing plants across the country keep popping up to increase manufacturing.

Why Do Homeowners Love GAF Timberline Solar Shingles?

Tesla's solar shingles were met with excitement – and eventual disappointment from homeowners. The company made no effort to lighten the roof's internal ecosystem. Homeowners had to wait for a specialist Tesla team to service their roofs. 

With GAF, homeowners don't have to wait for solar shingle specialists. GAF Master Elite roofers have the training and expertise to install and troubleshoot the asphalt shingles. Specialist Timberline Solar Shingle installation teams, such as Roper Roofing & Solar, can troubleshoot solar shingles and improve their performance later on.

GAF Timberline Solar Shingles look like real asphalt shingles. They even have exceptional water shedding capabilities and 130 miles-per-hour wind resistance. Homeowners associations allow them because they look just like real asphalt shingles and have zero issues during installment.

GAF Energy on Friday held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of construction of its manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas, where the company will produce its nailable solar shingle product, called Timberline Solar.

Construction is expected to be completed in the summer of 2023, with the facility to be fully online by the end of the same year.

GAF Energy, which has a research and development (R&D) and manufacturing facility in San Jose, California, introduced Timberline Solar earlier in 2022. According to a July announcement, the new factory will increase the company’s manufacturing capacity by 500% and make it capable of producing 300 MW of solar shingles a year. The Georgetown plant is said to become the world’s largest solar roof facility. The owner and developer of the building is Portman Industrial.

The groundbreaking event was attended by Congressman John Carter, City of Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder and other community leaders. (Continue reading here to learn more)
