GAF Timberline Shingles Review
GAF is one of the top-selling asphalt shingles roofing systems across the US. Their roofing systems come in a variety of colors and are available across the country. It is also likely that these roofing materials will be available a decade from now, making them a great choice for homeowners.
The GAF Timberline Shingles line is considered to be one of their best products. Here’s a short review of its salient features.
Strength And Durability
Timberline Shingles are known for their indestructible and long-lasting nature. To begin with, the shingles are made using an asphalt reinforced fiberglass mesh. Multiple layers are fused together to make each shingle, and once installed they provide numerous layers of protection to the roof.
It is also worth mentioning that the Timberline ArmorShield II comes with a Class 4 rating UL 2218 rating. This simply means that they have a high impact resistance rating.
These are dimensional shingles; and therefore, come with the high wind resistance capabilities associated with this shingle design. They are strong enough to withstand high winds without tearing; up to 110 mph.
When coupled with the GAF Lifetime System, enhanced installation and the use of specialized fasteners, their wind resistance can be effectively increased to 130 mph, from 110 mph.
GAF warranties are considered to be among the best in the industry. To meet Lifetime Warranty requirements for the Timberline Shingles, the installation must include some of the main components of the GAF Asphalt Roofing System. Some of these components include starter strip shingles, Cobra attic vent, leak barriers, roof deck protection, and ridge cap shingles.
Furthermore, by using a Master Elite roofing contractor, homeowners gain access to GAF’s enhanced warranties.
From the above, you should have a good idea of whether GAF Timberline Shingles are your best option.
