Parsippany, N.J.-based GAF launched Timberline HDZ shingles nationwide. The product features a new LayerLock technology, described as a combination of factors that speeds up and simplifies the roofing process.

The HDZ has a StrikeZone nailing area that is up to 600% larger than the Timberline HD shingles. It also boasts 30% faster nail fastening during installation compared to Timberline HD shingles.

A Dual-phase shingle-to-shingle seal with its Dura Grip sealant and StrikeZone nailing area, and an asphalt-to-asphalt monolithic bond provide durability, strength and wind uplift performance, the company says.

“Roofing contractors have been asking for new ways to help accelerate and grow their business, and we’re excited to introduce technology that can make their jobs faster and easier with Timberline HDZ shingles,” said Jim Schnepper, President of GAF.

Roofing contractors can now also offer homeowners a GAF WindProven limited wind warranty, a wind warranty for roofing shingles with no maximum wind speed limit, when installing GAF shingles with LayerLock technology and four qualifying GAF accessories.

The HDZ shingles are compatible with the HD roofing shingles. The product will make its debut at the 2020 International Roofing Expo in Dallas Feb. 4-6.
