There are significant reason to upgrade to the GAF Ultra HD Lifetime Shingles - While both Ultra HD & HD have lifetime warranties from GAF; the shingles are different as you can see here. The Ultra HD Lifetime Shingles are 50% thicker in grade (4 bundles per square) and have an extra coated layer of stone granulation on the bottom. This means added protection and weather durability to your home and saves on insurance home owner premiums by having a heavier grade umbrella covering the home.

All shingles with a Lifetime ltd. warranty also have a 110 mph wind warranty. However, if the shingles are (a) installed with six nails per shingle and (b) installed using GAF starter strip products installed at the eaves and rakes, the wind speed coverage is 130 mph. The word lifetime means for as long as the original owner (or the second owner, if the warranty was properly transferred during the Smart Choiceฎ protection period) owns the property where the shingles were installed. See limited warranty for complete coverage and restrictions.
