A resilient home can withstand punishing weather, and your residential roofing system is an integral part of your home’s resilience. There are several elements in a resilient roof system, however, which include impact resistance, wind resistance and insulation. Mobley Brothers Roofing and Restoration explains more below.
Impact resistance refers to the ability of your roof to withstand the impact of hail and other airborne debris. It is an important quality because debris can easily damage your shingles and cause roof leaks. If impact resistance is a priority, tell us during your roof replacement project. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we can install GAF’s wide range of products. GAF’s Timberline® ArmorShield™ II has UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance.
Wind resistance is another important factor. According to roofing industry experts, most wind-related damage comes from the perimeters and corners. To prevent wind damage, you can ask your contractor during your new roof install to focus on reinforcing those areas. Our GAF products feature Dura Grip™ Adhesive seals to improve wind performance. For example, the Timberline ArmorShield II can withstand wind gusts of up to 130 mph.
Insulation will improve your home’s resilience by making it more energy-efficient. A resilient building is one that can function for a short period of time without power during a severe weather event. Roof insulation will help keep you and your family more comfortable if the power goes out. The roof insulation will reduce the amount of heat that enters through your roof and attic during the day.
