Impact Resistant Shingles For Dallas Residential Roofing
A relatively new option for residential and commercial buildings is now available for hail stricken roofs. Not every Dallas Roofer has this option available but here at Go Go Green Roofing and Restoration, we have it available for our clients. This option is Impact Resistant Shingles and with our Texas hail storms, it can prevent a lot of damage.
Studies show that in the early 90s, hail damage inflicted about eight billion dollars of damage each year. Most of this wind and hail damage was to rooftops. There are many ways hail damages asphalt shingles. Damage can include granule loss, loss of material at the shingle’s edges and even hail breaking holes straight through the shingles themselves. With damage this severe, you need a Dallas residential roofing company like Go Go Green Roofing and Restoration who understands and has extensive experience in treating and preventing hail and wind damage.
There are many ways in which shingle manufacturers have improved shingle designs so they can better resist severe weather like high winds, hail and flying debris. These shingles now have improved ways to keep granules on the shingle, to keep shingles from breaking and to better keep shingles attached to the roof. Ask Go Go Green Roofing and Restoration, your Dallas residential roofing experts, for more information.
We are your Dallas roofer who carries these new impact resistant shingles that are specifically designed to resist damage from hail and high winds, like the kind our Texan weather can dish up. These products meet very strict guidelines for impact resistance (class 4) as determined by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). They also meet the wind resistance guidelines set by UL and the ASTM International (American Society for Testing and Materials).
UL has developed tests and classifications to identify how resistant roofing material is to damage. The test is administered by attacking a sample of roofing with steel balls. Depending on the amount of damage sustained, the roofing material receives a rating. Class 4 rating roofing material is the best at resisting hail damage. This damage resistance is so significant, that some major insurance companies offer homeowners discounts for choosing this grade of roofing material. As Dallas residential roofing experts, we can advise you on roofing materials and possible discounts.
Protect yourself by choosing a Dallas residential roofing company who can offer you the best in impact resistant shingles. Don’t install a new roof just to have it damaged again in the next storm.
