Impact-Resistant Shingle Performance Ratings
Consumers deserve to have confidence that shingles labeled as impact resistant live up to expectations.
IBHS and its members recognized the growing problem of hail damage in large regions of the United States and have devoted years to field and lab research to develop a new test standard for impact resistance.
To conduct testing, IBHS bought the major competing widely purchased impact-resistant shingles from standard distribution channels accessible to consumers, brought them to our lab, and tested them under scientifically replicated real-world conditions. The results offer unprecedented insights into the performance of shingles labeled as impact resistant.
