We often talk a lot about our maintenance free products, but what about products that can protect your home from the elements, such as hail? Hail damage accounts for about one billion dollars in damage in the US each year, so protecting your home from future damage could save you a lot of money and headaches down the road. GAF, the leading manufacturer of asphalt roofing materials in the US, has brought to the table an impact-resistant shingle called Timberline® ArmorShield™, that can offer you potential insurance savings while still providing the beauty Timberline® shingles are known for.
Why should you have Timberline® ArmorShield™ shingles installed on your home!
You may qualify for insurance savings!
Timberline® ArmorShield™ shingles passes UL 2218 class 4 impact tests. The UL 2218 class 4 impact test started in 1996 which measures the impact resistance of roof coverings. This standard test utilizes a 2 inch steel ball that is dropped from 20 feet above onto the shingle to see whether or not it cracks. This test simulates a hailstorm impacting your roof at speeds of over 70 MPH. A standard shingle being subjected to this same test would show ruptures and cracks visible on the surface immediately from the force of the steel balls. You may qualify for insurance discounts of up to 30% or more. Each shingle is labeled with special information that you can give to your insurance agent to see if you qualify for premium discounts.
Unmatched wind performance
Timberline® ArmorShield™ is applied to your roof with Dura Grip™ Adhesive which seals each individual shingle tightly and reduces the risk of shingles blowing off up to a maximum wind gusts of 130 miles per hour, which meets Class F wind ratings that is the highest rating possible.
Safer & protects against stains
Timberline® ArmorShield™ has a Class A fire rating, which is the highest rating possible, and also has StainGuard® which will protect the beauty of your roof from unsightly blue-green algae.
