Elk is a discontinued brand of residential and commercial roof shingle. The Elk brand is owned by GAF, a manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products. GAF is a subsidiary of privately held Standard Industries and is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Elk Roofing Products was founded in Stephens, AK, in 1955 and was purchased in 1972 by Elcor Chemical Company. The company changed its name to Elcor Corporation in 1992 and to ElkCorp. in 2002. In 2007 ElkCorp was acquired by GAF, who has since discontinued the Elk brand.
Prior to being acquired by GAF, Elk offered five lines of asphalt shingles: Prestique, Raised Profile, Domain, Winslow, and Capstone. After the acquisition there were several shingles offered under the GAF-Elk name, including the Timberline Prestique, TruSlate, Camelot, Grand Canyon, Country Mansion, Grand Sequoia and Captone.
The warranty on Elk shingles varied according to product. Shingle warranties ranged from 25 years to a limited lifetime warranty, with wind coverage ranging from 60 to 130 MPH.
