Your roof is the first line of defense and resistance for your house when it comes to safeguarding it from the weather, the wind, and other situations; yet, the question remains as to how durable and safe it is.
If an impact resistant roof shields your home, you can confidently say your home is strong and safe. Impact-resistant roofs are built to withstand hail, wind, and water. The strength of an impact-resistant roof relates to the products used during installation. One of the most common items is impact-resistant shingles (hail-resistant shingles). These durable shingles come in many styles and can be made with asphalt or metal supplies.
Mimicking the look of wood, slate, and traditional shingles, impact-resistant shingles are combined with cement, plastic, resin, polymer, and rubber. Adding all these elements creates an impact-resistant roof making it strong and durable in any weather condition or climate.
Oklahomans who need to replace their roof will benefit from an impact-resistant roof simply because of the ever-changing conditions
Oklahomans are subjected to every season. Homes are a large investment that will continually be impacted by severe weather like hail, high winds, and tornadoes. Taking the additional steps with impact-resistant products
when installing your roof ensures your home can defend, save, and outlast your traditional roofing needs.
It’s always good to review and keep on hand your homeowners’ insurance policy with coverage details. The insurance policy typically covers sudden damage to your roof, but not if the roof is aged with normal wear and tear. According to Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS), Oklahomans are among the first in the Great Plains and Midwest to have the added benefit of available mitigation credits on homeowner’s insurance policies.
Despite the higher initial cost of impact-resistant shingles, investing in your home can save you over time. Protecting and diminishing the risk of damage to your home is a valuable cost. When a powerful storm hits, a durable roof can save you money on the materials and labor for repairs.
