G-I Holding Inc.: All About Roofing

September 12, 2013

Every building and home needs some form of roofing. A company out to provide all your roofing needs is G-I Holding and its subsidiary Building Materials Corporation of America (doing business as GAF). GAF goes back a long way. It was founded in 1886.

Today GAF has become North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing. It has become an almost $3 billion annual sales company. G-I Holding and GAF manufacture flashing, vents, and complete roofing systems. It manufactures residential shingles and related products. The firm also produces built-up roofing, single ply roofing, and modified bitumen products for commercial use.

Among the brands GAF markets include Metalastic, Timberline, EverGuard, GAFGLAS and Ruberoid. Other products include natural stones, ornamental ironwork, fiber-cement siding and ducting.

When it comes to roofing G-I Holdings is an old hand. It has the manufacturing power but has also learned to try out new products when warranted. The firm has also started to branch out with other products outside of roofing. It’s a company that has survived when others have long vanished. The firm looks like it’ll be around for quite some time.
