Should you get a Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingle in McKinney and DFW?

In this article, we will go over three main topics regarding class 4 impact resistant shingles. First, we will discuss the 4 main benefits of upgrading to a class 4 impact resistant shingle. With many options out there, we will show you the most popular on the market right now. To finish, we will explain what you as the home or business owner should consider when deciding which class 4 roofing system to install. If you watch the video above, you will see Mark Munden, one of our roofing consultants, explain the benefits along with an example install of that specific product in the background. The product in the video we go over is a Pinnacle Impact Resistant Shingle by Atlas Roofing that is a newer product.

Here are the 4 main reasons to upgrade to a Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingle:

  1. Insurance Premium Discounts:

One significant benefit of class four impact-resistant shingles is that they may qualify for a premium discount with your insurance carrier. When you have these shingles installed, you can become eligible for potential savings on your insurance premiums. We recommend reaching out to your insurance agent to gather more information about this money-saving opportunity. If you don’t have a personal relationship with your home insurance agent, we can refer you to many in the McKinney area and DFW.

  1. Protection against hail and strong storms:

Living in Texas, we frequently experience severe storms that bring a mix of rain and hail. Fortunately, impact-resistant shingles are designed to withstand large hailstones. The unique composition of these shingles allows them to absorb impact and bounce off without cracking or breaking. In fact, they undergo rigorous testing, such as dropping a two-inch ball from a height of 20 feet multiple times, to ensure their durability. This is why the product in the video, Pinnacle Pristine Impact, recently became a class four because it passed this exact test. On top of protecting against hail, these shingles also can withstand 130 mph winds which is why these class 4 roofing systems offer a lifetime warranty.

  1. Save money in the long run: 

Besides the savings from insurance every year, you will also save money in the long run because of how long this roofing system will last. Instead of your system breaking down in 10-15 years and having to spend a lot of money on general repairs and maintenance, this roofing system’s lifetime warranty will protect for the long run. General repairs and maintenance can cost thousands, so while you invest more money up front for a higher quality roof, it helps you in the long run.

  1. Increased value of the home when selling:

Because buyers look at everything inside and outside your home to see the lifespan left on that system, like the roof or AC unit, having a roofing system that will last along time, protect against storms, look beautiful, and warranty that transfers, this will increase the value of the home.

What things do you need to consider when choosing a class 4 roofing system in McKinney and DFW:

Are all impact resistant shingles the same? No, make sure you check with a professional roofing company to see which roofing system is right for your home. The next thing to consider is color because each system has specific colors, so depending on where you live in the U.S. will determine which system looks good for your home. Of course our team is based out of Dallas – Fort Worth, but we also have offices in Austin and Denver. On top of that, our team has lived in other parts of the U.S. prior so our experience with other roofing systems is vast. Make sure to also read the warranties of these systems, as each is different. This may seem obvious, but make sure you choose a trusted local contractor so your nice new class 4 lasts a lifetime.
