Extreme weather conditions are occurring more often, across the nation. From devastating tornadoes to damaging hurricanes, the wrath of nature's fury has affected thousands over the past few years. It’s why protecting your home from the elements is a key homeowner concern. The StormMaster® featuring Scotchgard™ Protector shingle line from Atlas Roofing is a roof that can really stand up to Mother Nature. Available in two beautiful styles, StormMaster Slate and StormMaster Shake shingles complement any home. These superior shingles are built for durability and performance, including extreme weather conditions such as high winds, heavy rain and snow, even hail. StormMaster shingles are among the few roofing products available with a Class 4 rating.
In 1996, a joint effort between property insurance experts, the Institute of Business and Home Safety (IBHS), and the Underwriter’s Laboratory (UL) resulted in development of standardization of roof impact resistance, rating materials from Class 1 through 4, based on impact testing resistance. Class 1 rating is the lowest impact resistance, Class 4 the highest. All roofing shingles are classified and rated in the United States according to this standard. With a Class 4 rated shingle like StormMaster, a homeowner can be assured of the highest protection for their home; additionally, homeowners can often receive discounts on homeowner insurance.
Shingles, are fabricated with a variety of materials that boost their strength, including aluminum, copper, plastic polymers, and resins. Class 4 asphalt shingles are sturdier and more flexible than standard shingles, offering increased wind resistance, stronger impact resistance, and a potentially longer lifespan. StormMaster shingles are designed with SBS (Styrene Butadiene Styrene) Technology to combine high-performance with lasting endurance. SBS gives these roofing shingles superior strength and durability.
