The Most Hail Resistant Roof Material
With climate change having a significant impact on changing weather patterns, Ontario has seen an increase in severe hail storms over the past few decades. It also looks like it will continue to get worse with harsher weather events. Extreme weather, including hail storms, produces the most roof damage and can cost you a significant amount of money in repairs or a new roof replacement.
The great news is that by going with a Euroshield roof, you're essentially protected against even the worst hail storms Ontario can dish out. You can relax and have peace of mind knowing you're protected from any hail damage occurring.
Cao (2008), using data from the Ontario Storm Prediction Centre for the period 1979-2002, found a significant increase in severe hail (defined as hail with a diameter of at least 2 cm) frequency and variability in Ontario, associated with warmer air temperatures (Figure 2).
How Is A Roof Considered Hail Resistant?
If a roof can withstand hailstones of 2 inches in diameter or less without suffering damage, it's deemed hail resistant. This is hail the size of a regular egg. That's pretty large hail! But the fantastic thing about a Euroshield roof is that it was designed to handle hailstones up to 4 inches in diameter. That's roughly the size of a softball.
What Is The Best Roof For Hailstorms?
Rubber roofing is by far the best material to protect your home against hail. Why is that?
- Euroshield roofing panels have scored the highest official hail-proof rating in the industry - UL2218 Class 4 for Impact
- Each of the Euroshield roof styles has been independently tested in laboratories recognized by the Canadian Construction Materials Council (CCMC), the ICC (USA), and listed by QAI.
- In the over 20 years since Euroshield has existed, not once has a single roof panel needed to be replaced because of hailstone damage.
- It comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty you can read below
The Best Protection Against High Winds & Extreme Weather
Euroshield roofing doesn't just protect against hailstorms; it protects against all the worst weather conditions out there. High winds are the ultimate enemy of asphalt roofs. Still, it is no match for a Euroshield roof's sophisticated locking system, which offers maximum protection against high winds. Add in the fact that the carbon black materials used in a Euroshield roof better help absorb damaging ultraviolet rays. You're talking about a virtually indestructible roof.
Gone are the days of picking up your asphalt shingles from your lawn and garden after a high wind storm. Gone are the days of spending money on costly repairs to your asphalt shingle roof.
You can have complete peace of mind knowing a Euroshield roof comes with an unbeatable Limited Lifetime Warranty. Never worry about paying for a costly repair to your roof ever again. This roof will most likely be the last roof you ever have to buy. We also provide a Lifetime Workmanship Guarantee that can't be beat.
How do we define and what is a sustainable roof? A sustainable roof should emphasize using natural materials and preserving the environment throughout its whole creation and end of life process. Eco-friendly and sustainability shouldn't just be buzz words and phrases companies use to market themselves. It's a real game-changing commitment from every person involved along the way, from manufacturers, installers and homeowners themselves.
Between 250 and 1000 or more used tires go into producing just 1 Euroshield roof replacement or new roof installation. Even the scrap materials generated during the manufacturing and installation process can be recycled and reused. Euroshield virtually eliminates all environmentally harmful waste.
This roof uses recycled tires and prevents them from ending up for a lifetime in the landfill. With Euroshield rubber roofing lasting 50+ years, it keeps roofing material out of the landfill. Most asphalt shingle roofs need to be replaced every 15-20 years. All this old asphalt material ends up in our landfills.
Every type of Euroshield roof is fully recyclable at the end of its lifespan. They were specifically created to solve the problem of old tires piling up in landfills and dumpsters across the globe.
Why A Rubber Roof Is Superior To A Metal Roof?
Rubber roofs vs metal roofs is a question we get asked about often. Both are known for longer-lasting lifetimes compared to the popular asphalt shingle roof. Both roof systems are pretty close to a permanent solution, as best as you can get when talking about roofs.
But in our opinion, we don't think the comparison is even close. Rubber roofing systems are far and away the superior choice. So much so that we don't even install metal roofs. If a customer comes to us about wanting a metal roof, we educate and explain to them why a rubber roof is the better option.
In terms of cost, both a metal roof and a rubber roof are similar in price. So there is no huge price difference that would make one possibly a better choice for you. There can be some instances where a metal roof can come out cheaper, but that's when a roofing company installs the metal roof over your current asphalt shingle roof. This is a terrible idea and only done to save money. The problem with doing this is that when installing a new roof, you should always remove the old roof system first to inspect the decking and look for damage and rot.
Metal roofs have many cons that need to be taken into consideration.
- Noisey in rain and hail storms
- Metal roofs can be dented by hail or falling debris like large branches
- Depending on the type of metal, you might not be able to walk on the roof
- Over the long run, metal roofs can have expansion and contraction issues
- Harder to repair and replace as well as install
None of these issues applies to a rubber roof at all. We're such big believers in going with a rubber roof and don't bother recommending or installing metal roofs for customers. There are just no real benefits of a metal roof, with the price being pretty much the same.
Rubber Shingles vs Asphalt Shingles
A rubber roof is far superior to a classic asphalt shingle roof in every way except one slightly important detail. You probably guessed it, price. There is no denying that a rubber roof is a more costly option upfront compared to an asphalt roof. Asphalt roofs are the most popular option of roofs people install because roofs aren't a minor purchase.
We get that and fully understand. But the price might not be as bad as you think once you factor in possible insurance reductions, energy bill reductions, less money spent on maintenance, and repairs over the roof's lifespan.
