Quality is a major consideration when protecting and maintaining your house, and that applies to everything from roofing to siding. That’s why quality residential roofing materials are a priority to homeowners, and why impact resistant shingles offers quality roofing solutions for your home. If you’ve ever experienced bad weather, you know that your roof can sustain real damage, particularly from hail. If you possess a traditional asphalt roof, your roofing materials might not hold up against that kind of impact!

What Are Impact Resistant Shingles?
As you may have deduced from the name, impact resistant shingles are a specific kind of roofing material that can withstand golf ball size hail and even flying debris. Hail damages ordinary asphalt shingle systems by cracking through the surface shingle, 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, one technique is to release a two inch steel object onto the shingles from a height of 12 feet or 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.
