HDZ: America's #1-Selling Shingle Just Got Better

Published on Wednesday, April 15, 2020

America’s number one selling shingle has officially gotten better.  The Timberline® HDZ™ high definition shingle by GAF has all the features and benefits contractors love with the same look and style homeowners desire.  The Timberline® HDZ™ shingle has the industry’s widest nailing zone plus LayerLock™ technology and an asphalt to asphalt bond.  But it doesn’t stop there.  GAF has also backed this shingle with a WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty, an industry first.  The Timberline® HDZ™ is a game changer to the roofing industry.  The key features and benefits are outlined below.

StrikeZone™ Nailing Area - The StrikeZone™ nailing area on the Timberline® HDZ™ shingle is 600% larger compared to the Timberline HD shingle and allows for up to 30% faster nailing.  It also serves as an alignment guide for a more accurate and faster installation process.  The StrikeZone™ nailing area is the widest in the industry for up to 99.9% nail placement accuracy.

LayerLock™ Technology - LayerLock™ Technology enhances the common bond area of the shingle by mechanically fusing the common bond between overlapping shingle layers.  This greatly reduces the risk of delamination.

Asphalt-To-Asphalt Bond - GAF’s legendary DuraGrip™ sealant seals asphalt to asphalt.  The DuraGrip™ sealant pairs with the smooth microgranule surface of the StrikeZone™ for a fast tack and an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond cures for exceptional wind uplift performance.

WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty - The WindProven™ Limited Wind Warranty is an industry first.  This is a 15-year limited wind warranty with no maximum wind speed limitation when installed with the required combination of GAF accessories.
