The shift to solar roofs

We like to think we’ve created a new type of roof with Timberline Solar™, one that harnesses both advanced energy technology and well-established, tried-and-true roofing installation practices and materials.

Timberline Solar™ is a roof with solar – the roof part comes first, just like our roofing partners come first. We know you’re the ones putting the shingles on the roof – and we want to make solar simple. So we made it into a lightweight, nailable shingle.

GAF Energy was founded to build a scalable, mass-market solar roof that helps you meet your customers where they are now and in the future. Timberline Solar™ represents a big step toward realizing that promise.


A solar-powered opportunity

No one knows roofs better than you. As homeowners take greater interest in solar and its benefits, solar roofing becomes key to serving customers well and staying competitive.

GAF Energy helps roofers offer solar to homeowners by providing well-designed hardware components and a full suite of design, permitting, and electrical services. Our roof-integrated products come in two forms: Timberline Solar™ is game-changing nailable solar and DecoTech is direct-to-deck and flashes in just like a skylight. All GAF Energy solar roofing products provide excellent water-shedding qualities.

Roofers react to Timberline Solar™

“Aesthetically speaking, this is a true shingle. This is a solar shingle, and it’s a marriage of solar and roofing. It’s a sleek and simple install. It is truly one with the roof.”

Invested in your success

We know you’ve worked hard to develop and maintain a great reputation with your customers. Offering GAF Energy roofs means delivering the same great experience your customers expect, with power added.

We’ve invested in products, people and processes to make solar simple. Our Timberline Solar™ roof is straightforward to install, requiring pretty much just a nail gun. And, we have expert project coordinators to help handle certain things for you, from electrical permitting to inspections, so you can stay focused on roofing sales and installation.

“We work with GAF Energy because they help control the process – they are the first to put the impetus on the roofing contractor. They designed the ‘kit’ concept and made it scalable, so that solar will continue to grow and thrive.”
