When the times come for you to upgrade or replace your shingle roof, consider installing impact resistant shingles. This roofing material is designed specifically to protect homes from severe damage due to hail or other stormy weather events. These roofing systems can withstand up to 130 mph winds because there are six fasteners holding them onto the roof instead of just three. You can purchase an impact-resistant roof in a variety of styles, including 3 tab shingles, laminate shingles, steel shingles and even stone coated steel shingles.

Benefits of Impact Resistant Shingles
In addition to protection against the weather, impact resistant shingles can provide homeowners with another great benefit. That benefit is that insurance companies will often give discounts on homeowner’s insurance premiums after the impact resistant roof has been installed. While this is great news, the timing of the installation of this new roofing system can be a bit tricky. Your insurance company isn't likely to pay for a roof upgrade after your roof has already been damaged by a hailstorm. Trying to upgrade after storm damage has occurred will likely nullify the insurance claim. A a better option is to wait until your roof needs a full replacement or replace the roof as part of a summer home maintenance project. The initial installation is a bit pricey, but with the insurance discounts most homeowners receive a full refund in four to five years.
