Shining a spotlight on the top roofs, GAF and Architizer.com, a platform for architecture and design have announced the two $5,000 grand prize winners in their “Call for Installs promotion; one in the residential category and one in commercial.

Screen Shot 2014-12-22 at 11.55.30 AMThe challenge was an opportunity for architects, builders, and owners to show off their creativity on a roofing system that used GAF roofing materials.

The Commercial Grand Prize Winner is Lakewood Mausoleum in Minnesota by HGA, Inc. This pair of buildings used GAF products in two different ways — new construction and roof replacement. For the upper roof of the new Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum, HGA used the always popular GAF EverGuard® TPO 60 mil Membrane. The same product became integral in the renovation of the cemetery’s Administration Building, which was built in 1932.

The Residential Grand Prize Winner is The Architect’s Studio for their 2.5-story “seaside colonial,” shingle-style home in Spring Lake, New Jersey. The symmetrical and complex roof forms feature GAF’s Timberline Ultra HD® Shingles in Pewter Gray. The Timberline Ultra HD® Shingles are backed by a Lifetime ltd. Warranty* and a 130-mph wind warranty.** The seaside structure and roofing material weathered Superstorm Sandy, when many homes near the water were destroyed.

“Call for Installs” is a collaboration between Architizer and GAF Roofing. GAF selected the finalists and the members of Architizer voted for the winners on Architizer.com.

*See GAF Shingle & Accessory Ltd. Warranty for complete coverage and restrictions. The word “Lifetime” means as long as the original individual owner(s) of a single-family detached residence [or the second owner(s) in certain circumstances] owns the property where the shingles and accessories are installed. For owners/structures not meeting the above criteria, Lifetime coverage is not applicable. Lifetime ltd. warranty on accessories requires the use of at least three qualifying GAF accessories and the use of Lifetime Shingles.

**This wind speed coverage requires special installation.  See GAF Shingle and Accessory Ltd. Warranty for details.
