What are Class IV Shingles?

If you’re building a new home or are looking into getting your roof replaced, choosing shingles can become overwhelming.

There are many factors that go into selecting the color, type and brand shingles. Most people want to outweigh the options by factoring in cost, longevity and potential savings down the road. What could you potentially save on? Insurance.

Class IV shingles are impact resistant shingles that can provide homeowners discounts on their insurance premiums. These shingles can pass the Class 4 impact test, which may qualify for insurance discounts.

How does this help you? Living in Oklahoma, we experience high winds and disastrous storms such as tornadoes and hail. The Class IV shingles incorporate a rubberized polymer that creates stability and longer lasting shingles. Since they obtain this material, the shingles are able to withstand the extreme weather conditions that would more likely tear apart your roofing system.

By having these type of shingles, you can have peace at mind knowing that your roofing system is the most resistant to damage.

Along with the potential insurance premiums and benefits of Class IV shingles, these shingles offer more than just that.


Impact Resistance

The aftermath of the impact test on these shingles showed no evidence of cracks or ruptures on front or back of the shingle from immediate impact. When these are compared to standard shingles, they are the best of the best.


High Performance

These shingles are designed with advanced protection technology that reduces the use of natural resources that provides the excellent protection you need.


Ridge Cap Shingles

Class IV shingles can be used with a seal to classify them as Class IV ridge cap shingles. They come in multiple colors to match the impact resistant shingles. With the multi-colored options, these are the highest rated with a lifetime warranty.
