What Is an Impact Resistant Shingle?
An impact-resistant shingle is exactly what it sounds like: a shingle designed to withstand high impacts from things like hail, strong gusts of wind, updrafts, and other extreme weather. Impact-resistant shingles are intended to provide homes notable resistance to these types of difficult weather that we often experience in Indianapolis. While the up-front cost for an impact resistant shingle can be higher than standard asphalt shingles, in many cases it works out that the long-term investment for these types of roofing options come in as less expensive because of how much more durable they are.
What Is Class 4 Impact Resistance?
If you see an impact-resistant shingle rated as a Class 4, then you can be confident that these are the highest rated shingles on the market. In order to have an impact-resistant shingle that is rated at such a high class, you can be certain that it will cost you more money on the install for the raw materials. However, impact-resistant shingles are installed the same as any other type of asphalt shingle, so while you will be paying more for raw materials, you will not be paying any significant difference on the actual labor costs of installation.
Do I Need Impact Resistant Shingles For My Roof?
There is no way to answer this question for you without knowing more about your concerns, but if you are concerned for the long-term health of your roof as it is exposed to winds in excess of 90 miles per hour, hail, heavy rains, and other adverse weather over the useful lifetime of your roof, then these options are worth considering. We will be happy to discuss past projects that we have completed for happy customers who have impact resistant shingles, and explain what you can expect if you were to go with the same solution to your roofing needs.
Of course, you can choose to install a regular roof with asphalt shingles and you may still be able to avoid damage if your roof is exposed to the aforementioned problems, but if you make it through a hailstorm without damage to standard shingles then you will likely be an exception, not the rule. After you are forced to repair your damaged asphalt shingles once or twice due to adverse weather conditions, you very well may be breaking even on, if you have not already exceeded, the initial investment that impact resistant shingles would have cost.
