The Anatomy of a Timberline Roofing Shingle

The Anatomy of a Timberline Roofing Shingle

GAF has become North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing and an innovator in roofing shingles since their start in 1986. This is thanks largely in part to their use of Timberline Ultra HD Shingles.

Timberline Ultra HD Shingles are 53% thicker than the standard shingle and with the High Definition blend, they offer a natural beauty that will be sure to increase your home’s resale value. Timberline Shingles cost just a few more pennies-a-day and come with much more added benefits for you and your home.

GAF Roofing

Appearance: GAF’s shingles are coated with Diamond Cut Granules that add dimension and depth to a single shingle. The combination of a thicker design and HD color blend creates an enhanced shadow effect that gives your roof an ultra-dimensional look and is sure to wow your neighbors. Furthermore, the granules have a color lock coating that maintain the roof’s true color for years.

Safety: Timberline Shingles come with a Class A fire rating, which is the highest rating possible. This means that your roof is able to withstand severe exposure to any fire and the shingles will not break or fall off during that fire. Additionally, the use of FiberTech incorporates non-combustible fibers into the shingle, which not allow flaming on the underside of your roof.

Eco-Friendly:  HD Shingles are environmentally friendly due to GAF’s Advanced Protection Technology. This creative process uses less asphalt and limestone in the design of the shingle, therefore eliminating any unnecessary waste of natural resources. Moreover, Advanced Protection shingles results in less landfill waste because they can be recycled for re-use in building new highways around the country.

Security: Timberline Shingles utilize Dura Grip Adhesive seals, which seal each shingle tightly to your roof to prevent the shingles from blowing off your roof. GAF’s testing has shown that their roofing materials can withstand severe winds up to 130 mph! This means less maintenance that you will have to do after installation!

Warranty Protection: Timberline Ultra HD Shingles come with a lifetime limited transferable warranty with Smart Choice Protection for the first ten years. Your roof’s longevity is ensured by the use of a UV Blocker that protects the shingles against damaging sunlight, so the shingle is not warped or faded by it.

The Finishing Touch: Timberline’s Premium Ridge Cap Shingles offer the best protection for the hips and ridges of your roof, which are the areas with the most stress. Compared to the standard architectural shingle, Ridge Cap shingles are 195% thicker.
