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.

Had a new roof and gutter guards on home and garage replaced 2 months ago. Very professional service and presentation. Contract presented along with license and insurance information along with paperwork showing carried workman's comp on employees. All work done within promised time frame. Perfectionism noted on completion of job and cleanup perfect. Employees very respectful and hard workers. Would recommend them and would use them again in the future if needed. Good job, thank you!

We were very pleased with the overall job of Matt and his crew the day we got our new roof. Great work guys! Zack is a very good salesman and did a good job explaining everything to us. Thanks to all of you!

Great job. What a good-looking roof. Zack and his crew were fine to deal with — courteous, hardworking, attention to detail. We had a leak problem and were scheduled quickly. Zack even came a few days before and did a temporary fix because of a threat of rain. Very competitive price with a good, thorough final clean-up and an inspection with the owner before the final payment is made. Good group to do business with. Thank you!
