Owen Corning 50 yr versus GAF


I have two roofers i am receiving estimates from. One uses Owen Corning 50 Year one recommends GAF. I was told the warranty with GAF is only good if the installer stays in business...is that true. Also, I received an estimate of $6,395 with the GAF shingles, not including skylights would would be another $1000. The OC estimate for the 50 year is $7850 with a 21 in skylight and some insulation in the attic. They are using 28 SQFT of shingles. I really need some advice.

either go online to GAF site or request a copy from the roofer.

As far as the money, I can't comment as that tends to be specific to the area

One other thing, the cheapest is not necessarily the cheapest....

Warranties mean nothing if the product is not installed correctly. Don't be afraid to ask for at least three references and check up on them.
