It will come as no surprise that GAF is known for manufacturing some of the industry’s strongest, longest-lasting and most aesthetically pleasing roofing systems. And as a company well known for their commitment to innovation, it was only a matter of time before they did a one-up on their wildly popular Timberline™ roof shingles. While preserving the same good looks and protection inherent to their complete line of residential roofing systems, GAF recently introduced the next generation of high performance roof shingles.
The Timberline® ArmorShield™ II Shingles represent an entirely new way of thinking about roof repairs, replacements and installations. Let’s take a look at some of the key features that make them the new industry standard for quality and performance.
Potential Homeowners Insurance Discounts
Timberline ArmorShield II shingles from GAF easily passed the UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Test, which may help qualify some homeowners for discounts on their personal insurance premiums. Each shingle is labeled with specific information that meets the Texas Department of Insurance requirements, in order to determine whether or not possible premium discounts may be available.
Superior Wind Damage Protection
GAF Timberline II shingles meet UL Class F wind ratings, which is the highest score possible during these vigorous tests. One of the reasons is that each individual shingle features DuraGrip™ adhesive, which provides an intense bond to help protect against blow-off from storms and intense winds. In many cases they are rated to withstand gusts of up to 130 miles per hour.
Improved Impact Resistance
The Timberline II series roof shingles are designed with Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, which not only reduces the use of natural resources, but also allows them to perform in ways few shingles have ever been able to. This was demonstrated when they passed UL’s Class-4 2218 impact test–which must reveal no cracks, ruptures or signs of damage as a result of intense impact testing
