GAF has announced the nationwide launch of Timberline® HDZ™ shingles, powered by new and innovative LayerLock™ technology. Combined with all the benefits of GAF’s shingle, LayerLock technology mechanically fuses the common bond in Timberline HDZ shingles to offer the following benefits: up to 99.9% nailing accuracy thanks to the new StrikeZone™ nailing area, which is up to 600% larger than Timberline HD® shingles; up to 30% faster nail fastening during installation when compared to Timberline HD shingles; dual-phase shingle-to-shingle seal with the Dura Grip™ sealant and StrikeZone nailing area, and an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond for durability, strength, and powerful wind uplift performance; and compatibility with Timberline HD roofing shingles.
Roofing contractors have been asking for new ways to help accelerate and grow their business, and GAF is excited to introduce technology that can make their jobs faster and easier with Timberline HDZ shingles. 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.
Roofing contractors can now also offer homeowners a GAF WindProven™ limited wind warranty, a wind warranty for roofing shingles with no maximum wind speed limit, when installing GAF shingles with LayerLock technology and four qualifying GAF accessories.
