Is a Class IV product hail proof?

LET’S START WITH WHAT THE CLASS IV TESTING IS

IT’S AN IMPACT RESISTANCE RATING PERFORMED BY UNDER WRITERS LABORTORY

THE UL2218 PERFORMS A DROP TEST USING A 2” STEEL BALL

THE SHINGLE MUST WITHSTAND ANY VISIBLE CRACKS THRIOUGHOUT THE PRODUCT

THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR A FEW REASON

IT WILL PROLONG YOUR ROOFS LIFE ESPECIALLY IN A HAIL MARKET

IT WILL, IN MOST CASES SAVE YOU THE HOMEOWNER 10–30% ON YOUR ANNUAL PREMIUMS, SO ROUGHLY A FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS A YEAR

SO DOES CLASS IV MAKE IT HAIL PROOF… ABSOLUTLEY NOT

NOW THERE ARE SOME PRODUCTS THAT HAVE HAIL WARRANTIES AND CLAIM TO BE HAIL PROOF BUT THE WAY I PREFER TO EXPLAIN IT IS

INSTEAD OF REPLACING YOUR ROOF EVERY FEW YEARS FROM A HAILSTORM WITH A CLASS IV PRODUCT YOU WILL MORE THAN LIKLEY WITHSTAND A FEW STORMS THUS DOUBLE OR TRIPPLING THE LIFESPAN.

OF COURSE, THIS IS ALL DEPENDANT OF THE SIZE OF THE HAIL

I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL AND PLEASE KEEP THE QUESTIONS COMING
