COMPOSITE ROOFING

Composite roofing is a very common roofing material. It is one of the least expensive roofing material choices, and it is quite durable. Composite shingles come in many different colors and styles. Most manufacturers offer upwards of a 50 year warranty. Though certain environmental factors such as hail damage may void your manufacturers warranty.

There are a myriad of composite shingle styles and colors. Some mimic slate shingles, others are specially made for storm resistance. Synergy Roofing & Remodeling Solutions is an Atlas Signature Select Contractor. This gives you access to the exclusive Atlas Roofing’s Shingle Visualizer.

LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF HAIL IMPACT ON ASPHALT SHINGLES – AN INTERIM REPORT

SCOTT J. MORRISON

Haag Engineering Co.

Carrollton, Texas, U.S.A.

STUDY FINDINGS

Following are findings of this study:

• Dents in asphalt shingles caused by impacts that did not cause initial fractures did not change measurably during the study and, hence, were not functional damage.

• For the three-tab shingles tested, impacts that dislodged granules did not expose asphalt nor affect the service life of the material and, therefore, were not functional damage.

• Some impacts made with freezer ice on laminated shingles dislodged granules from exposures without exposing asphalt. Granules subsequently were shed at impact locations over time with natural weathering. Careful examination at these locations revealed a continuous bed of granules immersed in the asphalt. There was no reduction in the expected service life of the shingles as granules on the shingles continued to protect the underlying asphalt and reinforcement. The condition was not functional damage, but merely a cosmetic condition.

• Fractures in shingles caused by impacts from simulated hailstones widened but did not propagate visibly during the study.

.• Impact-caused fractures in shingles exposed to natural weathering exhibited progressively more rounded / tapered edges and more oxidized gray colors of asphalt as exposure time increased.

• New asphalt shingles with organic or fiberglass reinforcements exhibited similar impact resistance.

• Weathered asphalt shingles with organic reinforcements were sensitive to impact damage, whereas those with fiberglass reinforcement were not.

• Functional damage to shingles caused by impacts was immediate and identifiable.

Our experience with Synergy Roofing & Remodeling Solutions could not have gone smoother and they exceeded all our expectations. We talked to 3 other roofing companies before meeting Steve. The clean up was great and we didn't have to worry about nails or debris left in our yard. His crew was trustworthy and respectful

Synergy Roofing replaced the roof on our former home, so when we experienced extensive hail damage on our current home, our first thought was to call Steve Raney @ Synergy. He and his crew did an outstanding job again and helped greatly working with the insurance issues. We're very happy with our new roof and would highly recommend Synergy Roofing to anyone we can. They were wonderful to work with

Sue B.

Prompt reliable service. Steve and Andrew were very helpful explaining the insurance process. They also were patient with us while trying to decide colors. They were very meticulous in the clean up ( no flats on my riding mower since the work was done). They inspected our roof all the way down to the decking before applying a top quality roof. Great experience
