Quality home inspections
Do you have damage to your roof?
Architectural shingles have a wind rating of 130 mph on them. In general, thicker architectural shingles are more impact-resistant than 3-tab shingles making them less susceptible to roof replacement. This protects from the impact of objects like falling branches and large hail.
The wind rating on 3-tab shingles is 60 mph when the shingles have the proper 4 nail per shingle pattern. Although 3 tabs are cheaper to produce, they are more susceptible to damage by the elements such as hail, or heat when compared to architectural shingles as they are made up of a thinner material.
Shakes and shingles may be UL-certified to resist winds of up to 245 mph and 173 mph, respectively. Shakes and shingles are available in Class 3 and 4 impact ratings, with Class 4 being the most resistant to impact damage. Due to the complexity of install and cost of materials, shake is typically the more expensive option.
If you take good care of your roof and live in a relatively mild climate, a properly installed slate roof could last for a century. Slate roofing is one of the more expensive roofing materials on the market. A fully installed slate roof will cost at least two or three times more than an asphalt shingle roof, if not more.
clay and concrete roof tiles can sustain winds in excess of 125mph that would strip off most other roofing materials. Concrete and clay tiles can resist damage from hailstones that are larger than a golf ball.
In wind uplift tests, metal roofs earn a 140-mph wind rating, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance, and some can withstand gusts up to 180 mph. many metal roofing products have the highest impact resistance and hail rating (Class 4) and although not aesthetically pleasing, will not be penetrated by the impact in the same manner as asphalt shingles.
When installed correctly, rubber roofing material is incredibly strong and can withstand wind uplifts of up to 110 mph. rubber roofing is the sturdiest product, when it comes to hailstones. Made from recycled materials and low maintenance, rubber roofing is the most hail-resistant roofing available.
