Certified Roofing Contractor Review: GAF Grand Sequoia

Certified Roofing Contractor Review: GAF Grand Sequoia

Joel Beattie, roofing Tacoma, Washington for nearly 20 years!

This week in Chase Construction North West, Inc.’s roof life blog, we are taking a look at the GAF Grand Sequoia roofing shingle. This review comes from nearly 20 years of experience as a Tacoma/Puyallup roofing contractor.  We feel that this roofing shingle review will be valuable information for you as a homeowner, considering the fact that we are grading this shingle independently from the roofing manufacturer. We have also worked with just about every roofing product on the market so we are able to offer you acomprehensive overview.

GAF Grand Sequoia

The GAF Grand Sequoia roofing shingles are a perfect choice for many homeowners. It’s a key-cut, heavy weight, laminate roofing shingle. Its counterpart is the Grand Canyon, which is the heaviest and thickest shingle in the GAF Product line. The Grand Sequoia is an exact replica of the Canyon, but lighter and more economically priced as part of the GAF value collection.

Sequoia is often used when replacing a cedar shake roof. The Sequoia/Canyon design most accurately reflects the authentic appearance of a real wood shake roof. In fact, there are many communities in which the HOA’s (Home owners association) require that a wood shake roof be replaced with a Grand Sequoia.

GAF Grand Sequoia Has A 4.97/5 Shingle Rating!
