What Are Impact Resistant Roofs? Destroyed windows on your brand-new car, damaged roof (again), sounds of what seems the sky falling down upon you outside…...
These synthetic plastic shingles are made to mimic asphalt shingles, and have a Class IV impact rating, 130-mph wind rating and Class-A Fire Resistance. Their patented manufacturing process produces granule free, plastic synthetic shingles that are durable, resistant to cracking and fading and have an asphalt shingle appearance.
F-Wave shingles have a 5-year manufacturers’ hail guarantee against any hail damage from hail 2” in size or less. The cost of these shingles is about double the cost of an asphalt roof. This additional cost becomes more attractive when considering that most insurance companies will give a discount for this type of roof, and also when you consider the deductible cost for a roof claim. It is becoming more common for insurance companies to charge 2% of the home’s value for a roof claim.
In the Denver area the average home value is 400K, which means a 2% deductible for a roof claim is $8,0000. When deciding on a new roof every homeowner should include F Wave in their choice of options.
