Anyone who’s ever witnessed softball size hail will tell you that hail storms are no joke. Americans are paying billions of dollars every year for replacing or repairing hail-damaged property. Roof top damage alone can cost you hundreds. Homeowners in Richardson, TX can now protect their homes with impact resistant shingles.
So how sturdy are these shingles? Roofers rate impact resistance on a scale from one to four (four being the toughest). For a roofing material to even be considered class four, it must be able to absorb and deflect 90 mile per hour hail strikes! When we say that impact resistant shingles offer your home the highest level of protection from hail damage, you can be certain that your home will be safe during the next thunderstorm.
Impact resistant roofing is supported by a special layer of polymer or rubber beneath the surface. This support provides excellent flexibility and water-proofing for seasonal downpour. If you’ve had problems with leaks in the past, you’re probably familiar with how expensive water damage and mold growth can be to fix.
Now who said shingles can’t have style and substance? Impact resistant roofing has come a long way in the last few decades. New texturing options, such as wood shake, slate, or stylized tile are available for homeowners to choose from. You can have fun picking the colors for your next hail-protected rooftop.
