February 28, 2023

Newly redesigned premium shingle combines award-winning technology with innovative design

PARSIPPANY, NJ (February 28, 2023) — GAF, a Standard Industries company and North America’s largest roofing and waterproofing manufacturer, announced today the reengineering and relaunch of Timberline® UHD — Ultra High Definition — shingles as Timberline® UHDZ™ shingles. In addition to GAF’s patent-pending Dual Shadow Line, which creates beautiful sunset shadows all day long, all Timberline UHDZ shingles now include features seen in America’s top-selling shingle, Timberline HDZ™, like the innovative LayerLock™ technology and StrikeZone® nailing area, making them easier and faster to install.

This new premium laminate shingle is a combination of beauty and benefits that go beyond any GAF shingle to date, offering:
  • A thicker, and about 20% heavier, design compared to Timberline® HDZ™ shingles
  • 10% more Time-Release Algae-Fighting technology than GAF’s best-selling shingles, for even more algae-fighting power
  • A new 30-Year StainGuard Plus PRO™ Algae Protection Limited Warranty against blue-green algae discoloration
  • A variety of color options to enhance the aesthetics of any home including Charcoal, Weathered Wood, Pewter Gray, Barkwood, Slate, and Shakewood
