Class 4 Shingles are Impact Resistance
Class 4 Shingles were actually tested by dropping a steel ball onto the shingles. The UL 2218 impact test was developed in conjunction with insurance industry leaders for the highest rating.
Would your current roof’s shingles survive the impact? Therefore unless you already have Class 4 impact resistance shingles installed on your home, then the answer is no, they probably wouldn’t because most standard shingles on roof tops can’t survive an extreme hail storm. Most importantly, shingles would have damage on both sides of the shingle from such an impact.
If you are ready for a new roof or re-roof, consider investing in the Class 4 Shingles. Your roof will last years more and withstand extreme weather or hail storm.
