Let’s look at Boral Roofing materials that can withstand hail damage:
Clay and Concrete Roof Tile
Common in many regions of the country, hail storms can wreak serious damage to a roof. Some concrete and clay tile products offer Class 4 hail rating, proving their ability to withstand two-inch ice ball impacts shot from a cannon at 70 miles per hour in accordance with the FM 4473 Impact Test.
Stone Coated Steel Roofing
Stone-coated steel is one of the best possible materials for withstanding the devastating hail storms that impact many regions of the country, providing the highest UL-listed, Class 4 UL impact rating.
In accordance with UL2218, top quality composite roofing solutions offer a Class 4 hail rating, the highest achievable rating. This makes this roofing type ideal for hail prone areas of the country.
Homeowners in hail prone areas can reduce their risk of impact damage by installing Class 4 rated roofing. Many insurance companies will even offer a discount for homes with Class 4 rated roofing materials installed. That is why choosing a roofing material with the proper Class 4 impact rated roofing will ensure the durability of your roof.
