To help these Farmington homeowners prepare against future storms, we started with the basis of the project. After a free roof inspection, we determined the decking for the roof was within building code with no major gaps or "mushy" spots, so moisture could not attack the integrity of the shingles substrate from below.
Next, we used an Ice & Water Barrier as an additional layer of protection against driving water and rain. Over the barrier, we installed Tamko Heritage Impact Resistant shingles. These shingles are tested to withstand Class 4 hail stones, which are among the largest found in storms. While manufacturers cannot guarantee absolute shingle resistance, these shingles have shown an increase in durability over other classes of shingles. The homeowners loved the Thunderstorm Grey color and the extra assurance of hail resistance.
