GAF Energy’s Timberline Solar™ Named Winner of the Good Housekeeping 2022 Home Renovation Award

We’re starting to see a shift in home renovation products as the industry is collectively giving more thought to sustainability. Not only are homeowners choosing durable and eco-friendly materials to protect what’s in their homes, but also to protect what’s on our planet. That’s why we’re excited to announce that this year’s winner of Good Housekeeping’s 2022 Home Renovation Awards was awarded to GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and innovative creator of solar roofing in North America.

What makes GAF Energy a standout company?

GAF Energy released its latest product, Timberline Solar™, in January 2022. The groundbreaking product provides homeowners with an all-in-one product that combines a roofing shingle with solar energy and is installed just like a regular asphalt shingle. The product is expected to be a catalyst for the installation of solar roofing across North America. GAF Energy is preparing for the influx of demand for Timberline Solar™ by building a 450,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas.

The main features of Timberline Solar™ include:

  • lightweight solar shingles
  • water-shedding capabilities
  • warranted to withstand up to 130 mph winds
  • aesthetically pleasing

GAF Energy claims, “the new Timberline Solar™ roofing system is so advanced it makes solar simple,” but we think they’re being humble. This state-of-the-art home renovation product is a game-changer for the industry.
