About Impact-Resistant Shingles
Impact Resistant Shingles, IR Shingles, Class 4 or hail resistant, shingles were introduced into our market in 1997. They have a UL 2218 Class IV rating and are designed to protect the integrity of the shingle structure from moderate hail. Most insurance companies offer a reduction in homeowner’s insurance premiums, many around 20%, with the installation of these shingles. We have been installing these shingles since they were introduced, and they have proven successful in protecting from damage due to moderate hail. If you need a new roof ask us about the many Impact Resistant shingles that are available.
