Boral Roofing Unveils Class 4 Hail Rated Tiles
Impact-Resistant Concrete Roofing Helps Prevent Weather Damage and Class 4 Tiles May Qualify Homeowners for Lower Cost Insurance Policies
“Storm Series is designed for durability and performance,”
Boral Roofing’s Storm Series product line has undergone severe impact resistant testing in accordance with the FM 4473 standard. The roof is proven to withstand sequential 2-inch ice ball impacts at speeds up to 104 feet per second. Storm Series is certified through the Roof Covering Impact Certification Program, sponsored by Architectural Testing.
Class 4 tiles are available in the Rocky Mountain, Heartland and Texas regions of the United States where storms and hail are prevalent and known to cause structural damage to homes. Homeowners may obtain potential insurance cost savings with Storm Series by selecting a participating insurance company and by requesting that their roofing contractor verify that Boral Roofing’s Class 4 concrete tile was installed.
As a concrete tile roof, the Storm Series also provides energy efficiency benefits to homeowners. Concrete tile maintains the inner temperature of the home, reducing the need for heating and air conditioning. Energy cost savings up to 22 percent are achievable over the life of the roof.
