Game-Changing Solar Roof with the World’s First Nailable Solar Shingle Is Perfect Solution for Roof Replacement in Home Renovation

SAN JOSE, Calif., october 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and a leading provider of solar roofing in NorthAmerica, has been honored as a winner in Good Housekeeping’s 2022 Home Renovation Awards. Good Housekeeping has been independently researching and testing products for over 120 years. The Home Renovation Awards are awarded after 5,000 hours of rigorous testing designed to help consumers choose the best products and services to create their dream home. GAF Energy announced the launch of Timberline Solar™ in January, and recently began construction on a new 450,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas.

“Good housekeeping has been a trusted voice for the homeowner for more than a century, so we’re thrilled for Timberline Solar to be honored as one of the best home renovation products on the market,” said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. “The best time for a homeowner to go solar is when they’re replacing their roof. By designing a solar shingle that installs just like a regular shingle, we’ve developed the game-changing innovation that will turbocharge residential solar adoption. There’s arguably nothing more important in your home than the roof over your head. Now, that roof can not only protect you but also help protect the planet.”

The Timberline Solar™ Energy Shingle (ES) has received multiple awards and honors since its launch earlier this year, including the Best of Innovation award from CES, Green Builder’s Sustainable Home Award, Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas and Innovation by Design awards, the NAHB Best of IBS Awards Most Innovative Construction Tool, and others.
