Allow Rojas Roofing to help answer these questions below, or call us today at (317) 643-8613 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!

    We are pleased with the products and service received from Rojas Roofing. It was a pleasure working with Tom. He communicated with us throughout the entire process and answered our questions and concerns in a timely manner. The crew … More was professional and efficient in replacing our roof and gutters as well as the clean-up. A minor issue arose a few days after installation of the new roof and the company sent out crew members that same day to fix them. Upon return, they thoroughly went over the roof to make sure there were no other noticeable issues. They have provided great customer service and we would highly recommend them.
