What are SBS Shingles?
Known as a rubberized polymer, SBS stands for styrene-butadiene-styrene. This substance is blended with standard asphalt used in roofing shingles to give the final product a rubber-like quality. Essentially, the modified shingle is able to flex and resist damage when impacted by external forces such as hail. This technology has proven to provide superior impact, wind and water resistance. As added benefits, SBS shingles can be installed in lower temperatures and are shown to retain their surface granules better than traditional asphalt products.
What Does Class 4 Impact Resistance Mean?
Many SBS laminated shingles have earned a Class 4 impact resistance rating, the highest in the industry. Testing is done by independent laboratories and results in ratings from Class 1 to Class 4. In the test, a 2” steel ball is used to simulate hail and is dropped twice in the same spot from 20 feet above. The process is done in multiple spots and the shingle is then examined for such things as tearing, splitting, fracturing and cracking. While a Class 4 rating doesn’t mean the product is impervious to damage, it does mean the shingle has a much greater chance of withstanding extreme hail and protecting your home.
