Timberline offers roofing shingles for residential applications. The Timberline brand is part of GAF, a manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products. GAF is a subsidiary of Standard Industries and is headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey.
GAF was founded in 1886 as Standard Paint Company and created their first roofing product in 1892. In 1921 the name was changed to Ruberoid Company, based on a type of asphalt roofing created by the company. In 1928 the name was changed to General Aniline & Film (GAF). The Timberline brand of architectural shingle was introduced in 1967 and is now GAF’s most popular brand of shingle, according to the company.
There are four lines of Timberline Lifetime Architectural Shingles: HD, which the company states are the best-selling shingles in America; Ultra HD, a thick, ultra-dimensional, high definition shingle with a wood shake look; American Harvest, which feature Advanced Protection Shingle Technology; and Natural Shadow, which feature an upscale, architectural look.
Timberline also offers two lines of Specialty Shingles: Cool Series, which reflect sunlight to reduce attic temperatures; and ArmorShield II, which feature enhanced impact resistance.
All Timberline shingles are covered by a lifetime warranty when used as part of a GAF lifetime roofing system.
