GAF, a North American roofing and waterproofing manufacturer, has announced the reengineering and relaunch of Timberline® Ultra High Definition (UHD) shingles as Timberline UHDZ™ shingles at the International Roofing Expo®. In addition to GAF’s patent-pending Dual Shadow Line, which creates beautiful sunset shadows all day long, all Timberline UHDZ shingles now include features seen in Timberline HDZ, like the innovative LayerLock™ technology and StrikeZone® nailing area, making them easier and faster to install.
This new premium laminate shingle is a combination of beauty and benefits that go beyond any GAF shingle to date, offering: a thicker, and about 20% heavier, design compared to Timberline HDZ shingles; 10% more Time-Release Algae-Fighting technology than GAF’s best-selling shingles, for even more algae-fighting power; a new 30-Year StainGuard Plus PRO™ Algae Protection Limited Warranty against blue-green algae discoloration; and a variety of color options to enhance the aesthetics of any home including charcoal, weathered wood, pewter gray, barkwood, slate, and shakewood.
Timberline UHDZ shingles are eligible for the WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty when installed with the required combination of four qualifying GAF accessories. GAF Master Elite® contractors can also offer a confidence-building 30 years of workmanship coverage when they install a qualifying GAF roofing system with Timberline UHDZ shingles and register a Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty on single family properties.
