Impact resistant roofing isn’t as much a product as much as an attribute. Traditional roofing shingles can crack or break under certain conditions, but impact resistant shingles have to undergo a literal beating to get the ranking of a Class 4 Impact Resistance.
The Northgate Class 4 Impact resistant Shingle from Certainteed is put to the test under extreme conditions in order to make sure that when it’s on your home, it can undergo some of the harshest weather like hail, fallen branches, and brutal temperatures.
Certainteed’s NorthGate asphalt shingle is what they refer to as SBS-modified, which gives it some characteristics of rubber. They perform a Class 4 UL 2218 Impact Resistance test where a 2 inch steel ball is dropped from 20 feet to see if the shingle will crack under the pressure of the impact.
Prodigy Roofing is honored to carry the designation of Master Shingle Applicator from Certainteed that is granted to contractors that are focused on superior workmanship and customer satisfaction
