G.A. F. Rubber Roof

GAF rubber roofs are rubber roofs made by the GAF corp. Here is what they have. They have 14 types of Ruberoid Roofs, 6 types of Ruberoid Heat Weld Roofs, 2 Ruberoid Granular roofs, and 6 Everguard Rubber roofs. You have alot to choose from. You have to have the correct roof for your situation. It is not easy to install. Most of the time it must be installed by Pro's. It must be double glued, and the black glue comes in 5 gallon pails, the rubber is terrible heavy. You must be sure your roof can hold it, and the list goes on. Good Luck

GAF makes Ruberoid yes...however Ruberoid is an modified asphalt built-up roof material. Nothing close to (rubber) EPDM

Everguard is the single-ply product line that includes the one EPDM product(private label)
It is a Commercial Roofing product, and is very difficult to get them to issue a warranty for a residential application.

One of the easier low slope products to apply, 20+ year life if done correctly.
Maint. is minimal.

P.S. The black glue is for seaming, and not used much anymore with the new tapes available. Yellow glue..or "Monkey Snot" as we in the trade like to call it... is the primary adhesive (Highly Flamable)!!! so be careful.
