Are you considering replacing your roof and want to know why you should upgrade to Class 4 rated shingles? Class 4 rated shingles offer numerous benefits over traditional asphalt shingles. Not only will these shingles save you money in the long run, but many insurance companies provide discounts for upgrading to Class 4 rated shingles. This is especially important for those living in Colorado, as Class 4 rated shingles are less likely to need replacement after hailstorms as they absorb impact better.

More Durable

Class 4 rated shingles are much more durable than the typical asphalt shingles.

Class 4 rated shingles are designed to be much more durable than the typical asphalt shingles, offering increased protection for your home. As a result of their durability, homeowners are less likely to need a roof replacement after a moderate hailstorm. This not only saves you money in terms of avoiding costly roof replacements, but also helps to avoid the hassle and expense of deductibles.

In Colorado and other hail-prone areas, having a Class 4 roof is considered an attractive feature in real estate transactions and can command a higher price from buyers who want the increased protection and reduced homeowner’s insurance premiums that come with this kind of roofing. Upgrading to Class 4 shingles is a worthwhile investment that offers numerous benefits and protection for your home.

Saves Money

Most insurance companies offer discounts for policyholders who upgrade their roofs to Class 4 rated shingles. Depending on the company, discounts can be up to 33% off the annual premium in areas that are prone to hail damage. These discounts can usually cover the cost of the upgrade within two to three years. Additionally, if your roof is damaged due to extreme weather or other events, homeowner insurance usually covers “like-kind” replacements, meaning you won’t have to pay for the upgrade again. Finally, having a Class 4 rated shingle roof on your home is an attractive selling point for potential buyers. Upgrading to Class 4 rated shingles is not only a great investment for homeowners in Colorado, but also a wise financial decision.
