Most Affordable Impact Resistant Shingles

Impact resistant shingles that have an asphalt composition base are generally more affordable than other impact resistant roofing products. There are several types of asphalt composition shingles that qualify as impact resistant:
1. Modified Asphalt - These shingles have the appearance of standard asphalt composition shingles but rubber modifiers have been added to the asphalt that increase the flexibility and durability of the shingles. The two main companies that produce asphalt roofing are Malarkey Roofing and Atlas Roofing.

2. Standard Asphalt - Most shingles made of standard asphalt do not carry a UL 2218 impact resistant rating. However, as of January 1, 2007, four roofing manufacturers had asphalt shingles meeting the highest Class 4 rating.
