High Performance Technology In StormMaster® Slate Shingles

November 9th, 2015

A slate roof can be an impressive look on a house. However, the cost is often expensive and natural slate does not provide the high level of roof protection available from an architectural asphalt slate shingle. StormMaster® Slate shingles by Atlas Roofing provides the unique and interesting look of slate but offer the benefits of much better roof protection.

Because of their larger size, Atlas StormMaster® Slate shingles with HP (High Performance) technology provide spectacular curb appeal when compared to standard-sized shingles. However, they provide much more than just a stunning look. HP technology means this larger-sized shingle resists hail damage, stays intact in the face of strong winds and continues to remain an impressive appearance for decades.

Standing Up To Humidity And Hail

Atlas StormMaster® Slate shingles with Scotchgard™ Protector help a roof retain its original appearance for many years. Black streaks on the roofs of homes are the result of algae growth, affecting homes wherever there is a minimum of humidity. They not only look dirty, but also make a house appear old and take away its curb appeal. However, Atlas StormMaster® Slate shingles are manufactured with copper-fortified granules distributed evenly across their surface. These shingles offer maximum algae resistance. Atlas certifies this with independent third-party laboratory testing to ensure a minimum blend of 10% coverage as well as even spread of protective copper granules.

StormMaster® Slate shingles from Atlas offer the highest hail impact protection, a Class 4 rating. UL 2218 is a national standard rating system for impact resistance, rating shingles from Class 1 through 4. A Class 4 rating indicates the highest level of impact resistance.

StormMaster® Slate shingles stand up to hail because they are manufactured with a process utilizing a rubberized styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) polymer. This method creates a more durable, longer lasting shingle that provides impact resistance in extreme weather conditions.
