The shingles create an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond for increased durability.
GAF has introduced a new series of Timberline shingles, Timberline HDZ, which incorporates the manufacturer’s LayerLock technology to mechanically fuse the shingles’ common bonds.
The shingles create a dual-phase shingle-to-shingle seal when used with GAF’s DuraGrip sealant, as well as an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond. In addition, the new StrikeZone nailing area is up to 600% larger than the nailing area of Timberline HD shingles, providing up to 99.9% nailing accuracy, according to the manufacturer, and up to 30% faster nail fastening during installation.
“Roofing contractors have been asking for new ways to help accelerate and grow their business, and we’re excited to introduce technology that can make their jobs faster and easier with Timberline HDZ shingles,” says Jim Schnepper, President of GAF. “This represents some of the most exciting innovation in the roofing industry today, backed by the quality and reliability homeowners have trusted for more than 130 years with GAF.”
The new shingle line will launch alongside GAF’s WindProven, a limited wind warranty for roofing shingles with no maximum wind speed limit. Roofing contractors can offer this warranty with any GAF shingles installed with LayerLock and four qualifying GAF roofing accessories. gaf.com
