A recent development in residential and commercial roofing is the Impact Resistant Roofing Shingle. At MidKansas Exteriors, we have found this to be a good choice for certain homeowners that have been hit with hail in the past.
The 4 years between 1991 and 1995 produced 8 billion dollars in insurance costs per year on average. A large part of those payouts were due to hail damage and wind damage. These new shingles resist the significant granule loss, penetration and damage to the edges of the shingle from hail and wind.
There are specific standards that a shingle has to meet to qualify as a Class 4 impact resistant shingle. The impact resistance is set by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the wind resistance standard is set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International).
UL 2218 is a classification that is a result of testing steel balls directed at roofing samples. If they pass the test and receive the Class 4 rating the shingles are considered the top in resistance to hail damage. If you install this class of shingle, you may be able to reduce your insurance cost with some of the major insurance companies.
Each manufacturer has their own proprietary approach to manufacturing these impact and wind resistant shingles. Our MidKansas Exteriors roofing experts can provide you with this information and help you decide on this type of shingle for your home.

“I recommend Mid Kansas Exteriors to anyone who needs roof/gutter repairs or an honest assessment of damage. They came out and looked at our roof after a hailstorm several years ago and gave us feedback that the damage wasn’t significant enough to need repairs. After several years of additional wind and hail, this year we needed to replace the roof and gutters. This was the first insurance claim I had ever made. Everyone on the team, including the office staff, were very knowledgeable and answered all my many questions about the claim/repair process. The work was done quickly and professionally. Even one of my neighbors told me they thought the crew did a great job and were very professional.”Brian Clarke

“My experience with Mid Kansas Exteriors was a thankful one. I originally called them to replace a window on a flip that I was doing. It was an unusual window that would end up costing a lot of money to replace and would take weeks to get. MKE was able to rebuild the frame of this window to make it a size that would save me more than half the money and get the job done within 7-10 days. Not only that, they were able to replace a front door for me and fix a sliding glass door that i had put in that was not closing properly, due to it not being put in correctly by another company. They pulled the door and fixed it for me at a very low cost. Thank you Mid Kansas Exteriors. I appreciated your help and your professionalism.”Kim Kretchmar
