Impact Resistant Shingles: Everything You Need To Know
Hail damage accounts for many roof damages due to hailstorms. It is during these instances when impact-resistant shingles become very important. This is because hail damage can lead to an expensive insurance claim. Across the country, hail causes more than $1.6 billion in damage per year – just in roof damage – according to the Federal Alliance of Safe Homes. Furthermore, shingles can react differently when struck by hail. For example, hail damage to asphalt and composition shingles can look very different from hail damage to wood shingles. It is important to have impact resistant shingles installed by a qualified roofer to keep your home safe. Sundown Exteriors is such a contractor, and we're glad to help.
