Frequently Asked Questions About GAF Timberline Shingle Colors

  1. What colors do GAF shingles come in?

GAF Shingles typically come in warm and neutral colors, designed to match with the widest variety of home exteriors.  The majority of the colors are variations on grey, gold, and brown, including woodgrain options, as well as darker greens and light blues.  There’s a GAF shingle that should look great on any home!

  1. What is the most popular GAF shingle?

“Most popular” is hard to gauge objectively, but in our experience, the GAF Timberline is the type of shingle people pick most often.  GAF themselves also cite the Timberline HDZ as their best-selling shingle.  Timberline HDZ shingles feature LayerLock technology for tight fits, StainGuard color protection, as well as additional Algae Protection to further guarantee a long, beautiful life.

  1. Which is better, Timberline HDZ or Timberline AH?

The Timberline HDZ and AH shingles are quite similar.  They both feature GAF’s proprietary StrikeZone nailing area, which reduces the time needed to install them, as well as StainGuard Plus protection against discoloration and algae damage.  The primary difference is simply in the styling of the two types.  HDZ shingles come in a wider variety of colors as well.

  1. What is the difference between GAF Natural Shadow and HDZ?

The short version is that HDZ could be seen as an upgraded version of Natural Shadow.  Both feature designs that mimic the look of real wood, self-adhesive seals, and protection against wind and fire.  However, HDZ offers a better overall look and thicker construction for more durability.

  1. What class are GAF Timberline shingles?

Shingles are classified based on their wind resistance and fire resistance. There are numerous categories for each.  Timberline shingles, specifically, have a Class A fire-proofing rating, which means they can withstand direct contact with a flame for extended periods without igniting themselves.  They also have a wind resistance rating of 130mph, making them proof against virtually any natural winds up to a Cat-3 hurricane or F1 tornado.

  1. Are GAF Timberline HDZ shingles hail resistant?

Yes!  Timberline HDZ shingles are designed to be hardy and stand up to almost any reasonable impact damage a home is likely to suffer.  Should you need more protection, or live in an area where hail storms are common, GAF also offers ArmorShield shingles which are even more damage-resistant.
