About No Roof Left Behind
Founded in 2013, No Roof Left Behind (NRLB) is a North American initiative that helps community-minded contractors connect with deserving families in need of a new roof at no cost. NRLB gives communities a voice in who receives that new roof by accepting public nominations and votes. This unique giveback program is reliant on local contractors to step up and donate their time, expertise, and labor for the installation. For more information, please visit www.noroofleftbehind.com.
Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company's products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors.

GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles, which then evolved with the introduction of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System by extending the Lifetime coverage beyond just the roofing shingles.
With a focus on social responsibility, GAF developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, providing excellent durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of natural resources. The company also developed single-ply and asphaltic roofing membranes with excellent durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.
