Forum Title: Impact resistant Shingles
I live and work in Oklahoma where hail, high winds and rain blow severely.. In the last 2 years hail, tornadoes etc. Have come through and in several cases hit the same neighborhoods 2-3 times and subsequently have been re-roofed in many cases the same amount of times. Note: many with minor damage that didn't warrant replacement! I read on this site a 30% discount on wind and impact resistant shingles from major insurance carriers?? I haven't experienced this, as a matter of fact the average is 8-11%. According to averages in Oklahoma the average roof (residential) lasts about 8 years before a storm damages it and needs a possible replacement. A major problem is contractors typically charge almost double for the impact/wind resistant shingles when in fact cost about 35.00 more per square, so with this in mind the incentive to use these products is a Moog point! Using a 15% savings at 35.00 per square ex: 40 square roof= 1360.00 additionally. Insurance premI'ms average about 1000.00 per year on a 2200 square foot home. At 15% or 150.00 per year savings do the Math. If insurance companies would wise and pay the difference for the impact and wind resistant shingles as an incentive, literally tons of roofing material wasted annually and land fills filled with marginally damaged material could easily be avoided. In addition the Carnival scamming storm chasers would be SOL !!
