Cons of Asphalt Shingles

  • The extreme UV, hail, snow, ice, and wind in the front range area mean that if you choose this roofing system, you will most likely need to replace it every 10 to 15 years.
  • Wind lift – Asphalt shingles are prone to wind lift
  • Fire Rating – In the Springs, our dry climate makes our community prone to fires. While asphalt shingles do come with a Class A fire resistance rating, this product is still flammable. 

Class IV/ Impact Resistant Shingles

Upgrading to Armor Shield II by GAF is a great investment for any home owner in the front range region. This shingle will look no different from any ordinary asphalt shingle but will offer many benefits of a tile or metal roof, in regard to impact resistance, without the painful out-of-pocket cost. Insurance companies are normally willing to offer premium discounts because this quality of shingle will help reduce your chance of a hail claim.

The out-of-pocket cost is generally only a small increase for a roof replacement. The cost to upgrade a roof is very reasonable when considering all the positives the upgrade adds to your property. For most of our clients the cost to upgrade is somewhere between 10 to 15 present.

Most home owners who pay for Armor Shield II will enjoy a premium discount from their insurance provider. The discount offered by most insurance companies will generally pay for the out-of-pocket cost within 1.5 to 2.5 years after premium discounts is applied to your policy. After that point, any extra savings is icing on the cake.

You will also enjoy the increase resistance to hail by filing less claims. Armor Shield II is rated to withstand a two-inch hail stone. This will greatly reduce your chances of having to replace your roofing system after a hail storm. Just consider for a moment what it would feel like to have all the hail resistance offered by expensive tile and metal roofing system for a much more attractive price.
