The Vista Algae Resistant (AR) shingle is comprised of specially formulated granules for increased security against algae growth. In environments where algae growth is prevalent, black streaks can stain a roof surface. The Vista additionally utilizes Nexgen, a polymer modified asphalt technology made from postconsumer materials. The polymer modified asphalt technology provides enhanced granule adhesion and weather protection. It is certified for Class 3 impact resistance which can withstand impacts from simulated hailstones over one inch in size.
