Over time, your roof shingles experience damage and deterioration, and one of the largest contributors for this destruction is the weather. Hail and wind are major weather factors that can cause extreme damage and leave your home defenseless. So, what if there was a roofing material that could help prevent damage from the storms and lessen your need for roof repair and replacement? Well impact resistant shingles may be the solution for your home!

Allow Rojas Roofing to help answer these questions below, or call us today at (317) 864-6193 to schedule a free consultation! We also provide expertise in other asphalt shingle roof types, such as architectural shingle roofing systems.

What are Impact Resistant Shingles?

Impact resistant or IR shingles are a class 4 shingle specially manufactured with a SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) modified asphalt formula — which is also known as rubberized asphalt — to withstand the impact of hail more effectively.

To obtain this superior roof shingle, Atla’s mixes the SBS with a normal shingle, binding them together and creating a rubbery, more flexible shingle, which can undergo greater impact than traditional shingles and still not crack. Utilizing the SBS formula can provide both the benefits of increasing a shingle’s impact resistance and helping it weather better over time.

What Does Class 4 Mean?

When it comes to shingles, class 4 shingles are the highest classification you can get when it comes to hail damage resistance. They are associated with the UL 2218 impact test, which involves dropping a two-inch steel ball from 20 feet high onto the shingle and examining whether the shingle cracks or not.

When the backing on a shingle breaks, it creates an entry point for water to potentially make its way to your underlayment, decking, and even into your home. Having shingles that are less likely to crack decreases the chance of water damage overtaking your home’s interior.

Pros of Impact Resistant Shingles

  • Increased Weather Protection: Impact Resistant shingles are designed to resist the harshest weather conditions including high wind, pounding rain and destructive hail.
  • Extend The Life Of Your Roof: Not only do they protect your home from major storms, but IR shingles can last far longer than regular asphalt shingles.
  • Long Term Saver: Not having to replace your roof as frequently due to the weather is both a time and money saver.
  • Potential Insurance Savings: Due to the decreased risk of hail or other damages resulting from wind, insurance companies take IR shingle into consideration for insurance pricing. Ask your insurance agent about potential discounts on your homeowners insurance premiums!

    Had damage in multiple locations to roof, flashing and soffit due to lightning strike. Rojas was quick to send someone out to inspect and tarp damaged area. Process from estimate to completion was smooth. Crew did quality work and cleaned … More up after themselves. Very happy with everything.

    Rojas and his crew did a great job. Done in one day. Kept my booshie plants safe and cleaned up well. All in one hot day in June. And the price was the lowest of the four quotes! I highly (second story high) recommend them😉
