Potential Insurance Savings And Extra Protection — With The Beauty of Timberline® Shingles


Potential Insurance Savings
Passes UL 2218 Class 4 impact test, and may qualify for insurance discounts of up to 30% or more (check with your insurance agent). Each shingle is labeled with special information needed to qualify for premium discounts according to the requirements of the Texas Department of Insurance—a standard that most hail insurers accept

Superior Wind Performance
Meets Class F wind rating from Underwriters Laboratories— the highest rating possible. Dura Grip® adhesive seals each shingle tightly and reduces the risk of shingle blow-off. Shingles warranted to withstand maximum wind gusts of up to 130 mph!*

Impact Resistant
Passes UL 2218 Class 4, UL’s toughest impact test (shingles show no evidence of cracks or ruptures on front or back immediately after passing). Compare to “standard” shingles, which may have ruptures or cracks visible on the surface or back immediately after large hail impact.

High-Performance Design
Provides extra- strong Micro Weave® Core for longer life and extended durability

Class A fire rating from Underwriters Laboratories—the highest rating possible (unlike most wood shakes with a Class C fire rating)

StainGuard® Protection
Helps protect the beauty of your roof from unsightly blue-green algae

Peace Of Mind
Lifetime ltd. transferable warranty with Smart Choice® Protection (non-prorated material and installation coverage) for the first ten years**

Starter Strips
WeatherBlocker™ or Pro-Start™ pre-cut starter strip shingles provide an upgrade that can save time, eliminate waste, and reduce the risk of blow-off by tightly locking your shingles in place along the rakes and eaves

Ridge Cap Shingles
