– for more info call 678-482-9476 – I live in Hamilton Mill (Dacula, GA). My insurance company recently paid to have my Atlas Chalet roof replaced with a GAF True HD Architectural Timberline Shingle, because of storm damage. Numerous homes with Atlas Chalet shingles are having their entire roof replaced because of storm damage and you can’t just replace individual shingles.
Atlas Roofing claimed in their original marketing that the “Chalet gives you peace of mind at an affordable price.” Atlas also claimed that these shingles are resistant to algae and up to 80 mph winds.
Sounds good but in reality these shingles are very susceptible to pitting, cracking and blistering and this can lead to granule loss, where chunks of material dislodge from the allegedly defective shingles.
As the Chalet shingles wear away and deteriorate over a short period of time, this can leave them susceptible to storm damage, which can eventually lead to leaks and other problems.

Comparison of GAF True HD Architectural Timberline Shingle (on top) to Atlas Chalet Shingle. The GAF shingle has two separate layers versus one built up layer with the Atlas faux shingle.
Shown is a close up of GAF HD True Architectural Roof – Notice how much more HD Definition it has compared to the Atlas Chalet shingle roof.
In 2010, Atlas Roofing Corporation announced their Chalet line of shingles would be discontinued.
The Atlas Chalet shingle had a 30 year limited warranty when it was being produced. This would now equate to a limited lifetime warranty for a similar shingle today.
Note the GAF True HD Architectural Timberline Shingle has a limited lifetime warranty and this includes materials and labor.
