Warranty Information on all Timberline Styles
Timberline shingles warrantees come in three distinct categories; Lifetime Transferable, 40-year transferable and 30 year transferable but there are subtle differences in the particular warrantee offered with a particular shingle.
Timberline Prestique HD and Armorshield II both carry lifetime transferable Peace of Mind warrantees that include materials, labor for the first ten years and includes wind protection of up to one hundred thirty miles per hour, but the Armorshield may also qualify for up to a thirty percent insurance discount depending on the insurer.
The Timberline Prestique 40 and Prestique Grand carry a forty-year transferable Peace of Mind warranty that cover materials and labor for up to five years and wind protection of up to one hundred ten miles per hour, with the only difference being that the Grand is a larger shingle designed to give a more authentic wood shake look. The Prestique Cool Color Series HD also carries the forty year warranty but is also Energy Star rated.
Prestique 30 and Natural Shadow shingles both carry a thirty-year transferable peace of Mind warrantee that has the same material and labor coverage as the forty-year shingle.
Natural Shadow shingles however, have wind protection of up to one hundred miles an hour, where the Prestique 30 has wind protection of one hundred ten miles per hour.
