GAF’s Timberline® architectural roofing shingles are what traditional wood shakes and shingles were over 125 years ago: ubiquitous. However, asphalt shingle technology was invented and advanced, and the rest is history. Today, GAF’s marquee offering is North America’s best-selling roofing product. Although wood is still on the roofing market, they’re no longer as popular after meeting their match.
Crown Roofing shares the main advantages of Timberline architectural shingles over standard wood shakes and shingles:
Algae Discoloration Resistance
GAF’s residential roofing products are impervious to unsightly blue-green algae. Their ability to resist unattractive discoloration caused by algae growth minimizes their maintenance needs. The same can’t be said about untreated cedar. Covered by the StainGuard® Protection, Timberline shingles are warrantied against algae discoloration for 10 years.
The cost of GAF architectural roofing products and wood shakes are miles apart. One of the reasons why asphalt shingles gained steam is that they offer the perfect balance between affordability and durability. Moreover, they emulate the appearance of genuine wood shakes. For instance, the Timberline Ultra HD® Shingles are indistinguishable from the real thing. The dimensionality of GAF shingles will give your home an upscale look without costing you a fortune.
Extensive Product Selection
If you choose Timberline architectural shingles for your residential roof replacement, you’ll have an array of styles and colors to choose from. Discerning homeowners love them because they offer the charm and performance of natural wood shakes while being affordable and low-maintenance.
Outstanding Fire Rating
Timberline architectural shingles have a Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the gold standard for measuring fire resistance. On the contrary, many building codes have banned the use of wood shakes because of their flammability.
Powerful Warranty Coverage
All products in the Timberline architectural shingle collection bear the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. In addition to your GAF guarantee that provides reimbursement for roof repair, this mark of quality makes you eligible for the GH limited warranty. Even the products of other leading roofing manufacturers don’t come with this stellar insurance against defects.
