Myth Buster – A Shingle… is a Shingle… is a Shingle

Jul 25, 2019

In this article, we BUST a common roofing myth about Shingles.

Actually, there are multiple classes, manufacturers, styles, warranties, prices and color shingles available to homeowners.

There are many options available within each class of shingle. Every shingle company/manufacturer uses different raw materials, manufacturing processes, mix of products and color combinations.

The variety helps manufacturers differentiate themselves and provide roofing contractors and homeowners with options to make a perfect selection at the right price point.

It’s certainly accurate to say that all shingles are inspected and rated based on industry standards.

Residential shingles are produced and sold as Class 2, Class 3, Class 4, etc., but unfortunately there is a wide range of quality and performance, even within the same class rating.

The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IIBHS), recently published their Shingle Performance Rating report and the result were quite revealing. You may access the report here: //hprtexas.com/ibhs.org/hail/shingle-performance-ratings/

As you will see in the data, one example of a high quality AND high-performing shingle is the Class 3 Malarkey Vista, which meets or exceeds many of the Class 4 Impact resistant shingles on the market!

High Performance Restoration installs the Vista often and is experiencing outstanding results and reviews from homeowners.

The best roofing contractors work diligently to build mutually beneficial relationships with premium manufacturers.

At HPR, we invest a great deal of time training our crews to install roofing systems that include products like the Malarkey Vista, so North Texas homeowners have shingles and a roof that can withstand our harsh weather.
