Innovative, Efficient Solar Shingles for Modern Kansas City Homeowners
Are you interested in offsetting your energy bills and creating clean energy—but also deterred by bulky, rack-mounted solar panels? If so, you’ll love the sleek, modern design of GAF Timberline® Solar!
Christian Brothers Roofing has partnered as an exclusive roofing company with GAF®—the leading roofing brand in North America—to bring the company’s cutting-edge, sleek, watertight solar shingles to homeowners in Kansas City.
What Is GAF Timberline Solar?
GAF Timberline Solar is a new, award-winning advancement in solar technology. Unlike cumbersome rack-mounted solar panels of the past, these solar shingles shield your home from the elements just like a traditional roofing system—but they generate clean energy too!
We’re proud to be the highest-certified roofing company with GAF in Kansas City. We’ve earned the Master Elite Certification and the GAF President’s Club Award for our commitment to performance, reliability, and service!
Why Are Solar Shingles Superior to Solar Panels & Traditional Roofing Systems?
Traditional solar panels are bulky, unattractive eyesores that are just unsightly enough to steer style-conscious homeowners away.
GAF Timberline Solar offers the perfect solution. These solar shingles are installed flush to the roof (as opposed to 6–10 inches above) to provide an aesthetically-pleasing alternative to traditional solar panels. Plus, GAF Timberline roofing shingles without solar capabilities are designed to match the size, shape, and color of solar shingles for a seamless appearance.
Rack-mounted solar panels require dozens of penetrations through the roof for the solar panel footings to be attached—creating vulnerabilities and opportunities for moisture damage. Plus, after panels are installed, they make a perfect hiding place for rodents, pests, and debris.
GAF Timberline Solar guarantees a waterproof roofing system for 25 years, and since the solar system is flush with your roofing shingles, you won’t have to worry about pest damage.
GAF Timberline Solar installation costs about the same as a complete roof replacement or solar panel installation. Christian Brothers Roofing offers financing plans that can nearly match the current monthly payment on your electric bill.GAF Timberline Solar also has a great return on investment—most homeowners make their money back in 6–10 years. Plus, with a 25-year power output warranty, you’re guaranteed to earn back your investment (and save even more!) throughout your solar roof’s lifespan.

Solar Shingle Installation FAQs
Still have questions about GAF Timberline Solar? No problem! These are some of the common questions we receive about these cutting-edge solar shingles:
What types of warranties and tax credits are provided?
When you install GAF Timberline Solar with Christian Brothers Roofing, you will receive a 26% federal tax credit on solar components, a 25-year SolarMax® Technology Warranty for power output, and a 25-year Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty for performance, workmanship, and waterproofing.
How long does solar shingle installation take?
Solar shingle installation takes about the same amount of time it would take to install a composition shingle roofing system, so on average, three to five days. During your project, we touch base regularly, so you won’t be left wondering about the progress on your solar roof.
Plus, we won’t leave your home, driveway, and backyard in disarray. We tidy up at the end of each day, and when the project is complete, we thoroughly clean up our mess to ensure your property is left sparkling clean!
Can I install solar shingles without replacing my roof?
If you’d like to install GAF Timberline Solar, you’ll need to replace your entire roofing system.
Unlike solar panels, which can be installed on top of your roofing system, solar shingles are flush with your roofing system, so they must be installed with coordinating roofing shingles engineered for the solar system by GAF.
Do I have to hire an electrician to hook up the solar system?
Christian Brothers Roofing is your “one-stop shop” for the installation of GAF Timberline Solar. We take care of the system design, permitting, solar roof installation, and electrification, so you won’t have to hire anyone else for your solar shingle installation!
