Severe weather is always a concern for homeowners. Especially weather that brings with it hail and strong winds. No one wants to think about the damage that might be done to a roof during a storm, not to mention the costs of repairing that damage and the insurance nightmares that may follow.
As a homeowner, there are a few things you can do to bring down the cost of insuring your home. If you find a roofing product that has a Class 4 Impact rating, your roof may qualify for discounts on your homeowner’s insurance premiums. Why? Because the insurance companies know that the product has been tested and therefore is less likely to need replaced. The amount of this discount will vary, and it may be a sufficient enough discount to rationalize the higher cost of using Class 4 materials, like fake slate and cedar shake alternative tiles from DaVinci.
