Your roof is your home’s main line of defense against the elements, so it’s important to invest in high-quality roofing shingles. GAF Timberline® Specialty Shingles are part of the GAF’s top-selling Timberline ® Lifetime Roofing Shingles line, featuring special features for enhanced performance and protection. Arry’s Roofing Services is proud to be one of the select few roofing contractors in Tampa qualified to offer these shingles.
GAF Timberline Cool Series® Shingles
Cool roofs are designed to reflect sunlight to keep your attic cooler. With reduced attic temperatures, your indoor cooling requirements are reduced as well, resulting in significant savings in cooling costs. Homeowners are typically limited to two types of cool roofs: a flat roof with a white or light-colored membrane roofing (more common in commercial buildings), or a metal roof painted in a light color.
With GAF Timberline Cool Series shingles, however, you can install a shingle roof and still enjoy up to 15% savings on your cooling costs while enjoying increased indoor comfort. You’re also not limited to white or extremely light colors thanks to GAF’s proprietary cooling granules. All GAF Timberline Cool Series shingles are ENERGY STAR®-certified, guaranteeing significant energy savings.
GAF Timberline ArmorShield™ II Shingles
If your region is subject to extreme weather, you will need extra strong, durable shingles. As a long-time and experienced Tampa roofer, we’re familiar with the local climate. Tampa residents need a roof that can withstand worst-case scenarios, like impact from large pieces of flying debris during a hurricane. GAF Timberline ArmorShield II Shingles have undergone numerous impact and durability tests and may even help you qualify for insurance discounts. Two of these tests include:
- UL 2218: An impact test administered by the global independent safety science company UL (Underwriters Laboratories). This tests for direct impact from small projectiles. ArmorShield II Shingles have a Class 4 rating.
- ASTM D3161: GAF designed this wind resistance test for roofing shingles. ArmorShield II Shingles are given the highest wind rating, Class F, for passing a 110-mph wind test. With proper installation from GAF Master Elite™ contractors like Arry’s Roofing, an ArmorShield II roof can be warranted to withstand winds up to 130 mph.
