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

Compare These Benefits...

  • 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.

    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...

    For maximum insurance savings, use only Seal-A-Ridge® ArmorShield™, UL 2218 Class 4 Ridge Cap Shingles. They’re also a unique color match to the Timberline® ArmorShield™ II Shingles


Meets Highest Impact Resistance Rating...

The UL 2218 impact test was developed in conjunction with insurance industry leaders — and ArmorShield™ II Shingles pass Class 4 — the highest rating possible. Check with your insurance agent about potential savings on your homeowners insurance.
