One of the reasons we work with the shingles made by GAF Roofing is they are the longest running producer of the highest quality shingles in the market. They test their products year after year to keep improving their already lifelong guarunteed shingles are always getting pushed to perfection.


GAF's Advanced Protection Shingle gives you the very best in weight and performance in the business. They performed over 185 tests in making their Advanced Protection Shingles and that leaves you with an asphalt shingle that is the top of its game in the following categories:

  • Fire Resistance
  • Toughness
  • Granule Adhesion
  • Wind Uplift Resistance
  • Flexibility

GAF is the first manufacturer to have all of it's shingles pass the industry's two toughest wind-resistance tests: ASTM D3161 (110 MPH) & ASTM D7158 (150 MPH)

American Windows & Glass: Double Hung or Sliding?

American Windows & Glass have a large line of different window styles you can choose from. Two of the most popular are Sliding windows and Double Hung windows. Which one is right for you? It depends on what you want out of your window and where you'll be placing your window. 


Sliding Window

Sliding (or gliding or slider) windows have sashes that slide either left or right in s single frame. A slide window can open both sides at the same time which will give your home maximum ventilation when you need it. These are best for when the width is greater than the height you have in the space. Also rooms who may need more often ventilation, like a kitchen or dining room or laundry room.  

 Double Hung Window

These windows also have two sashes in a single frame but they go up and down instead of sideways. These windows have easy-to-use tilt sashes that make cleaning very easy and accessible. These windows are perfect for when the height is a little higher than the width you have for each window. Since they are easy to clean, these are very popular in bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. 


Whichever combination of windows works best for your home, C.H.I. Roofing would be happy to expertly install them for you. Call 513-731-ROOF for a free no-risk estimate!
