There are many products to choose from when it comes to your home. Below are examples of some of those choices.
Fiberglass shingles have a base layer of glass fiber reinforcing mat. The mat is made from wet, random-laid fiberglass bonded with urea-formaldehyde resin. The mat is then coated with asphalt which contains mineral fillers and makes the fiberglass shingle waterproof. Fiberglass shingles typically obtain a class "A" fire rating as the fiberglass mat resists fire better than organic/paper mats.
Impact Resistant Shingles
An impact resistant shingle can withstand impacts from flying objects to a much greater extent than a common asphalt shingle. The impact resistant rating system ranks a shingles resistance to impact into 4 levels: Class 1 through Class 4, with Class 4 as the highest rating level to impact resistance.
Plastic roofing shingles, tiles, slates, or "wood" shingles are manufactured using polymer-based or composite materials that may offer improved impact resistance (such as resistance to hail damage). Polymer-based or plastic roofing products are generally about the same weight as laminated asphalt roof shingles, therefore lighter than cement-based shingles, clay roof tiles, or slate roofs.
