At Smith and Ramirez Roofing, we use nothing but quality products. Our GAF Timberline HDZ shingles are the best in the market. We wanted to give you an overview of this product and why it’s a trusted roofing material for any and every kind of roof. 

Testing Our Shingles’ Durability

GAF Timberline HDZ shingles conducted an experiment to test just how resistant their shingles were. They wanted to do the absolute major test by seeing how it will hold up against a Level 3 Hurricane. After testing it with simulated winds, our shingles were standing as if it had nothing but a breeze. Testing was also conducted on our shingles against red hot flaming embers, and we sought out to see just how much damage the shingles could sustain when being blasted by hot fire over a sustained period of time. GAF shingles resisted. We also tested the shingles under the pressure of hundreds of gallons of water and again our shingles stood erect and strong against the current. You can watch the video here.

The Special Ingredient: Duragrip

We use Duragrip, which is a specially formulated and highly engineered adhesive that adheres tightly to your roof providing the utmost protection. The adhesive is so strong that it could be used to pull a trailer hitch. Our roofs are engineered to endure, to perform, and to shine through any difficult situation, weather condition, or wear and tear. It’s why we are North America’s trusted roof shingles.
