What Are CLASS 4 Impact Resistant Shingles?
Shingles are rated for impact resistance using the UL 2218 test standard. In this test, steel balls are dropped?at a range of 12-20 feet to impact the shingles at high speed, replicating the force of actual documented hail.?The back of the shingle is then inspected for any cracking or visible signs of distress from the impact of the?steel ball. The UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance rating, is currently the highest rating given based on the results of this test.

Not All CLASS 4 Impact Resistant Shingles Are The Same
At CO Roofing, our experience in installing various CLASS 4 Impact Resistant shingles has taught us that not all Impact Resistant Shingles are the same. We have found that within this class of shingles, those that utilize rubber polymer technology (SBS) give the best performance against hail, wind and extreme temperatures. These types of shingles can also be installed at lower temperatures, which is a plus in Colorado.
Surprisingly, while CLASS 4 Impact Resistant shingles provide a huge increase in performance, they do not bring a huge increase in price. CO Roofing can provide your home with a CLASS 4 Impact Resistant Roof for much less than you would expect. In addition, your Insurance Company may reduce your Insurance Premium as well, which will cover any extra cost! No shingle is ?hail proof?, but with a CLASS 4 Impact Resistant Roof, you may never have to roof again.
