GAF Ultra HDZ shingles, officially known as Timberline UHDZ shingles, are a premium roofing option in a variety of colors offering superior beauty, performance, and protection for your home.

These shingles pack a punch when it comes to weather resistance, offering a robust shield for your roof against a variety of harsh conditions:

Wind: These shingles boast infinite wind speed coverage when installed with the required GAF accessories. That means no maximum wind speed limit! Their LayerLock™ technology mechanically fuses overlapping shingles, adding extra wind-fighting muscle.

Hail: GAF UHDZ shingles hold the prestigious UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance rating, the highest level you can find for residential shingles. This translates to incredible resilience against hailstorms, protecting your roof from even hefty ice chunks.

Sun & Heat: The shingles feature advanced cooling technology, reflecting sunlight and heat away from your home. This can help reduce energy costs by keeping your attic and living spaces cooler.

Rain & Snow: The shingles' durable design and watertight seals are built to withstand downpours and heavy snowfall. They also resist moisture infiltration, which helps prevent leaks and rot.

But seeing is believing. Watch this smartphone video taken by one of our sales managers following a recent heavy storm in Odessa, FL. Watertight Roofing Systems installed this UHDZ Shingle roof in September 2023. Neighboring homes experienced loose roof shingles and pool cage damage due to tornado-force winds that ripped through the area. This home’s roof remained intact and damage-free.
