Impact and hail-resistant roofing products are relatively new to the industry and are becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners, especially in Texas and Oklahoma. The total damage from many storms exceed $1 billion in damage and insurance payouts.
These hail-resistant products are designed to resist damage from severe weather elements, such as wind and impact from flying debris or hail. Different proprietary methods are used to keep granules attached to the shingle, to prevent shingle breaking during impact and to keep shingles attached to the sheathing during high winds. The quality and impact-resistant nature of these shingles can prevent you from experiencing a loss in a smaller storm thereby saving you deductibles and potential damage to the interior of your property.
