PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - May 4, 2016) - GAF, North America's largest roofing manufacturer, announced a partnership this week with Alison Victoria, interior designer and host of her own home improvement show. Alison has designed over 150 kitchens and has spent thousands of hours working on renovation shows. She is a recognized home improvement expert whose firsthand experience as a contractor makes her a trusted resource.
Alison brings her expertise to the GAF family by offering advice to homeowners on gaf.com and the GAF Style My House Tips Facebook page. Her experiences as a contractor and homeowner help further GAF's commitment to providing solutions made simple by making the process of replacing a roof as easy as possible.
"GAF was a perfect fit for me! As a designer AND a contractor, I feel like I have a unique perspective on projects," states Alison. "I want to see form and function in every single selection, so when it comes to purchasing your new roof, not only should it be built to last, it should look like a million bucks while doing it."
Alison's videos on gaf.com help viewers understand what goes into replacing a roof by explaining the roofing system. She covers topics ranging from why Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology is important, to warranty options, to the difference between three-tab, architectural, designer, and specialty shingles. On the GAF Style My House Tips Facebook page, Alison will share her unique perspective on roofing, decorating, and home improvement in general.
"We are excited that Alison has joined the GAF team, working with us and our certified contractors to educate and bring value to homeowners," adds Paul Bromfield, SVP marketing.
Besides hosting her own home improvement show, Alison owns the full-service interior design firm Alison Victoria Interiors and has her own furniture line, the Alison Victoria Collection. Her client list ranges from boutiques to resorts to private residences across the country.
