GAF Timberline HDZ as standard
We use Timberline HDZ shingles as standard on all our residential roof installations, unless a customer makes a special request or they choose to upgrade to Timberline UHD. This can account for some roofing companies offering to do the job cheaper but with inferior shingles which will not last. Always check out the shingles your roofing company is pricing for or you may regret it!
GAF launched its Timberline HDZ shingles, providing roofing contractors with a shingle that is not only easier to install, but also carries an innovative wind warranty. After two years of development and testing GAF has combined all the benefits of one of its top selling shingles with its LayerLock technology. This process mechanically fuses the common bond in Timberline HDZ shingles to offer a new StrikeZone nailing area, a nearly two-inch zone that is 600 percent larger versus Timberline HD shingles.
GAF used time motion studies in the development of Timberline HDZ. The lab concluded that by increasing the StrikeZone nailing area, the HDZ was 30 percent faster to install than HD, with only three nails missed out of 3,000 during the installation test. Therefore, by increasing the nailing accuracy and ease of installation, GAF believes this leaves more time on a job to address other aspects like cleanup and flashing, and helps crews not be on a roof for longer than needed. For instance, when testing the product, a GAF Master Elite contractor can shingle a multi-family apartment with HD in three days, but when doing an identical building with HDZ, they save half a day.
Local roofing contractors like Infinite Roofing can now offer homeowners a GAF WindProven limited wind warranty, the first wind warranty for roofing shingles with no maximum wind speed limit, when installing GAF shingles with LayerLock technology and four qualifying GAF accessories.
No Limit Wind Warranty
The LayerLock technology features a dual-phase, shingle to shingle seal with GAF’s Dura Grip sealant and StrikeZone nailing area. The technology provides an asphalt to asphalt monolithic bond that enhances its durability, strength and wind uplift performance. GAF is so confident in the wind performance that it’s offering a GAF WindProven limited wind warranty. GAF said this is the first wind warranty for roofing shingles with no maximum wind speed limit with a four nail per shingle application. By comparison, Timberline HD has a 130 mph wind capacity with enhanced nailing (six nails per shingle). Nobody else in the industry offers that level of coverage today on a product warranty. The WindProven coverage is available to everyone. To gain the warranty, a contractor must install GAF shingles that use LayerLock technology and four qualifying GAF accessories. We know from all of our market research that homeowners care about if it looks good and does it have strength and durability, and we’re just raising the bar in the terms of wind coverage with HDZ and LayerLock. GAF assures contractors that, if they’ve installed Timberline HD shingles, they know how to install HDZ shingle, so no further training is required to use them. The HDZ shingles are also compatible with Timberline HD roofing shingles.
What are the benefits of LayerLock?
New, innovative technology has made roof installation easier and more efficient for roofing contractors while benefiting homeowners who want more from their investment. Timberline HDZ shingles with LayerLock technology, manufactured by GAF, offer nailing accuracy during installation and more durability to withstand harsh weather conditions.
Timberline shingles with LayerLock technology are engineered for the best possible installation. LayerLock technology mechanically fuses the common bond between overlapping shingle layers. Our legendary Dura Grip pairs with the smooth microgranule surface of the StrikeZone nailing area for fast tack.
Upgrade to Timberline UHD
Timberline Ultra High Definition shingles are possibly the most ultimate asphalt shingles that you can buy. GAF's very top of the line, stunning looks and super durable. They are up to 53% thicker than standard architectural shingles, come with advanced StainGuard Plus technology and have the very highest roofing fire rating, UL Class A (Listed to ANSI/UL 790). Their extra thickness gives the UHD shingles the ability to maintain their original form and dimensions even under the most extreme conditions.
