Hailstorm Defense: How The Right Roof Can Protect Your Home

Whether it’s your residential or commercial roofing system, one of the most important things you can do for it is choose the right type of roof. That way, no matter what kind of bad weather that may hit your area, your home is well protected from the elements. For instance, should hail hit your area, the right roof can properly protect your home’s structure.


In this post, Billings Construction Group discusses the roofing choices that can protect your home from hailstorms.


Metal roofing is one of the most popular choices of roofing materials today due to its long lifespan. When it comes to hailstorms, meanwhile, metal roofs aren’t easily punctured due to their UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re invulnerable as they can still receive dents from the hailstones.

Asphalt Shingles

Due to their affordability and easy installation, asphalt shingles are another popular roofing material that homeowners prefer. While they may not seem to hold up well against hail, there are some asphalt shingles with a UL 2218 Class 3 and 4 impact resistance that can be used in hail-prone regions.


According to roofing companies, slate is a very strong roofing material. Depending on the slate type, it can easily meet the FM 4473 Class 3 or 4 impact resistance, making it a good choice to defend your home against hailstorms. High-quality slate can even outlast most roofing materials, regardless of the weather conditions it faces.


On the other hand, if you’re looking for a solid product with a long lifespan, then tile roofing is the option for you. Like slate tiles, it has an FM 4473 Class 3 or 4 impact resistance that makes it a suitable choice for hailstorm protection.
