What are Impact Resistant Shingles?
As you may have gathered from the name, impact resistant shingles are a specific kind of roofing material designed to withstand the impact of hail and other flying debris. Hail damages ordinary asphalt shingle systems by cracking through the shingle surface, as well as the fiberglass layer on the bottom. Punctures such as these can make your roofing system vulnerable to leaks.
With impact resistant shingles however, you can rest assured that your roof’s surface won’t be broken. Nor will the fiberglass mat below in the case of a severe hail storm. To test the resiliency of fortified shingles, scientists release a two inch steel object onto the shingles from a height of 12 feet (sometimes higher). A high grade shingle won’t display any signs of harm on the surface or the fiberglass backing. In contrast, a traditional asphalt shingle will show clear damage.
