Why Is Marquis WeatherMax® the Toughest 3-Tab Shingle Today?

If you’re in the market for an affordable yet durable asphalt roofing shingle, GAF’s Marquis WeatherMax® is for you. It’s a top-of-the-line 3-tab shingle featuring a classic design with granules that preserve their beautiful appearance for a long time. Available in two stunning color blends, it works well with the other elements of the Lifetime Roofing System to beautify and weatherproof your home.

When it comes to its durability, Marquis WeatherMax outperforms most of the 3-tab shingles you can find. Any Master Elite® roofing contractor like Krech Exteriors would attest that it exhibits exceptional resistance to the following:

Wind Uplift

Like other GAF shingle products, Marquis WeatherMax meets the requirements of two of the toughest wind resistance tests: ASTM D3161 and ASTM D7158. When installed properly, it can stay in place to prevent blow-offs and stand up to heavy, wind-driven rain.


Any experienced roofer knows that GAF shingles have a UL Class A rating and complies with ANSI/UL 790 ratings. Marquis WeatherMax is no exception. It’s a safe bet to help protect your valuables against fire without spending a fortune.

Long-Term Extreme Temperature

Made with GAF’s Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, Marquis WeatherMax can withstand the effects of Minnesota’s harsh winters and muggy summers. Little wonder then that it’s guaranteed to last long and not develop any issues from manufacturing defects for 30 years. If you protect it with the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty, you can extend its Smart Choice® Protection period from 5 to 20 years.

Cracking and Splitting

Unlike old-fashioned 3-tab shingles, Marquis WeatherMax is less likely to crack or split over time. Utilizing Micro Weave™ Core as its strong foundation, this asphalt roofing shingle can maintain its structural integrity for decades.
