The maintenance and protection of your property are your number one worry as a homeowner, so quality is key to leaving your home in great shape.

These shingles provide the same classic appearance as a traditional asphalt shingle roof while providing extra protection against damage.

What Are Impact Resistant Shingles?
As expected, impact resistant shingles are true to their name, in that they’re able to withstand hail falling without cracking on impact. When hail hits typical shingles, the shingle, in addition to the fiberglass matting underneath will generally warp or crack. Impact resistant shingles, however, are able to withstand hail falling without sustaining breakage on the top, or the matting below. There are several ways to test the strength of these hail proof shingles, but the primarily used test is conducted with a 2-inch steel sphere, released from a height of 12 feet. In order to pass as high quality enough for use, the shingle, as well as the fiberglass matting, has to be unharmed by the ball.
