4 Materials that Can Take Hail Beating

Hail damage can go unnoticed for months, spreading damage to interior components of your roof. For a roofing material that protects your home from hail, Buford Roofing and Construction recommends any of these four:

Hail Beating

  1. Metal

Dents from hail is a common myth about metal roofs. The truth is, metal roofing in Grapevine, TX, can withstand years of extreme weather conditions, including hailstorms. Modern systems can withstand typical hailstorms and strong winds that accompany them.

Aside from hail resistance, metal roofs also help conserve energy. They come with special pigments that reflect heat away instead of absorbing it, resulting in lesser HVAC consumption. You can also expect up to 50 years of service life from metal roofs.

  1. Stone-Coated Steel

Tests have proven that stone-coated steel can withstand hailstones as big as 3 inches in diameter. This material also offers superior durability and will not break, curl, warp, or absorb water.

Stone-coated steel residential roofing in Grapevine, TX, are also lightweight, so you can have them installed on both low- and steep-sloped roofs. You can have this material recycled after its service life, reducing landfill waste.

  1. Tile

After testing for hail resistance, both clay and concrete tiles can resist damage from 2-inch hailstones. Tile roofs also have a tough water-shedding material that serves as an extra shield against extreme weather conditions.

Tile roofs are also popular among homeowners because they come in a range of colors and textures and have high fire and wind resistance ratings. Tile is also eco-friendly, as it doesn’t use any chemical preservatives during production.

  1. Asphalt Shingles

This popular roofing material is mostly known for its beauty, reliability, and affordability. It comes in an array of colors and styles that mimic other roofing materials. Asphalt shingles also have high uplift and fire resistance.

As for hail resistance, Timberline® ArmorShield™ from GAF® has Class 4 impact resistance. This means that it will not crack or rupture when impacted by hail or any debris.
