A New Roof with Solar Roof Panels Cuts Electric Bill by 40%!


Mark Damon
Manchester, PA

Just wanted to let you know that my most recent electric bill was $50! The solar panels that you installed have cut my electric consumption by about 40% a month compared to the same period last year. If you ever need someone to give a testimonial about the GAF panels and how well they work just let me know.

It’s a roof.
With solar energy.
It’s that simple.

They say a technology has really arrived when it becomes seamless. When its engineering and integration are so advanced, it becomes simple. Introducing Timberline Solar™. A roof designed and developed to produce clean energy, while doing all the other things that roofs do so well. It’s really that simple.

Aesthetics are a cornerstone of our products. Our roof-integrated solar products have superior water-shedding qualities. And they’re installed by GAF-certified roofing contractor, TC Backer Roofing.

Sleek, low-profile, and precision-built, these are roofs neighbors will envy.

We sell two unique solar roofing products:

GAF Energy DecoTech: This roof-integrated solar system leverages top-of-the-line sleek black solar panels that install similar to a skylight, a direct-to-deck solar option with a sharp look. With thousands of DecoTech solar roofs installed today, we’re thrilled to help homeowners save money on their electric bills and not compromise on waterproofing.

There’s no better time to go solar than when you’re getting a new roof.

The solar pays for the roof

GAF Energy solar can produce electricity at a lower cost than your utility company. The more you produce and use your own electricity, the less you purchase. Over time, GAF Energy solar may even pay for itself AND your new roof, via monthly electric bill savings and government incentives.

You may also get credit for solar energy you send back to the grid when your panels produce more power than your home uses. This could further increase your monthly savings.

Of course, savings will vary and are not guaranteed. Incentives and eligibility requirements vary and availability is not guaranteed.


We’ve got you covered

A GAF Energy solar roof makes it easy for you to choose a cutting-edge roofing option, one that is also reliable, certified by key testing agencies like UL to meet the highest standards.

Working with a GAF-certified roofer, TC Backer Roofing, means you’re working with those who know roofing best–and you have the option to be covered under an industry-leading warranty.

This warranty is backed by our partnership with GAF, a company that has been in business for more than 100 years.

Local choice, global impact

Clean energy is the new paradigm.

Choosing solar for your home means contributing to the acceleration of renewable energy use. And that’s a great thing, for now and for generations to come.


How solar savings work

With a GAF Energy solar roof, you’ll not only get a roof that’s durable and has curb appeal, it’s also financially smart, since you can save on your energy bills over time.
