Atlas Roofing Product Receives Excellent Overall Rating for Hail Resistance From IBHS

Atlas Roofing announced that its StormMaster Shake shingles received an excellent overall rating from the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS). The performance rating is based on 2019 results from a new test standard for impact resistance developed by the IBHS.

Severe weather can displace families, disrupting their lives and impacting finances. To prevent these avoidable issues, IBHS conducts top-tier scientific research, the results of which help manufacturers engineer better materials, ultimately saving both the insurance industry and homeowners significant time and money.

The IBHS impact-resistance rating factors in how well shingles hold up to specific damage caused by hail. Out of the 10 products tested, Atlas StormMaster Shake shingles received a good rating for dents/ridges and an excellent rating for tears and granule loss. In addition, StormMaster Shake is the only product to receive an excellent overall rating.

“We’re thrilled that StormMaster Shake outranked the competition,” said Paul Casseri, product manager for Atlas Roofing. “The secret is in our Core4 Enhanced Polymer Technology — the most innovative development in asphalt shingle manufacturing today.”

IBHS tests are designed to replicate real-world conditions on a variety of widely purchased shingles labeled as “impact resistant.”

“Hail causes billions of dollars in property damage every year,” said Tanya Brown-Giammanco, managing director of research for IBHS. “Consumers deserve to have confidence that shingles labeled as impact resistant live up to expectations. Our research serves to empower manufacturers to develop better products.”
