Homeowners’ Guide: Dealing with Hail Damage on Roofs (Part2)

For the second installment of our 2-part blog, we’ll be discussing the best roofing replacement products. Specifically, we will look at the impact-resistance quality of a material to withstand the harsh weather conditions of Colorado, including damaging golf ball-sized hail.

So what is a roofing product with an impact-resistance attribute?

Citing the damage hail can cause our roofing, Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL), a safety consulting and certification company, tested different roofing products from various manufacturers, using steel balls and ice balls to test and classify the impact resistance capabilities of each product.

As a result, the researchers came up with a list of roofing products from different manufacturers that passed the test and granted the UL 2218 Class 4 rating:

●    CertainTeed roofing products are known for their tough, fiber glass-based shingles. Their roofing products can stand up to the force of a two-inch steel ball dropped from 20ft. without cracking. That’s surpassing the level of durability that their current models of shingles are known for.

●      GAF products are known for the best combination of style, protection, energy efficiency, and potential insurance savings. A true cost-efficient meets style kind of deal!

●    Owens Corning’s impact-resistant shingles are an excellent choice for homeowners concerned about the impact of severe weather on their roof, including hails.

●     Tamko roofing products also were able to withstand a heavy pounding a two-inch steel ball onto a shingle from a height of 20 feet, making their products one of the toughest in the lot.
