Doll Up Your House: Enter to Win a Free Roof!

Do you despise your old, ugly roof but don’t have the financial means to replace it? The largest roofing manufacturer in North America may have a brand new roof waiting just for you.

GAF and the Lifetime show “Designing Spaces” are hosting a contest called “Ugly Roof Makeover, A Tribute to the Great American Homeowner.” GAF offers advanced quality roofing and 125 years of expert experience. In addition to roofing, GAF handles decking and railing as well. The corporation has more than 4,000 factory-certified contractors, plus manufacturing locations all across the country.

Due to its reliable track record and impressive legacy, GAF is routinely encouraged to appear in leading home and garden publications and home improvement shows on networks such as HGTV and Lifetime. The “Ugly Roof Contest” is one such collaboration.

Designing Spaces, a half-hour national television series that travels all over the country, redefining and redesigning space, is once again teaming with GAF for the contest. The show spans the genre of decorating ideas, do-it-yourself projects, and step-by-step home improvements. Each episode explores home trends to inspire viewers to take on all home improvement challenges and decorating dilemmas.

“Protecting and beautifying your greatest investment is top of mind for every homeowner today, and roofing is a large part of that. We are excited to be working with GAF again on Designing Spaces, and believe that this initiative will be equally as exciting for our audience.” said Scott Moss, vice-president of partnership development.

As long as you are a legal resident of the U.S. over the age of 18 and you own your house, you are eligible to enter this joint contest. All entries must include a photograph of the old roof and a short story explaining why you need a new roof. Dust off your writing skills and make sure to find your roof’s worst angle. Get creative with how rotting shingles and huge leaks complicate your life.

To submit these items, go to and click on the “Ugliest Roof Contest” logo to upload the photos and story. All entries must be received before midnight on Aug. 12. Only one entry per person is permitted.

A prize winner will be selected within one week of Aug. 23. GAF will provide a new roof with a value of up to $15,000. The prize is a complete roofing package, including contractors, design fees, labor, permits, taxes, goods, supplies, and fees. Find more details at
