Which Roofing Shingles Are Wind and Hail Resistant

Faulty roofing can leave your biggest investment vulnerable to the elements and produce costly damage to your home. But you can have peace in the midst of a storm when your home is well shielded from the elements.

Brava Synthetic shingles deliver the highest-class wind resistance and hail resistance rating, giving you confidence your home is safeguarded from the elements. You can have strong, stable protection for your home with wind-resistant and impact-resistant shingles.

Three things to look for when choosing a wind-resistant roofing shingle include a Class 4 wind classification, a Class 4 impact resistance, and the highest hail performance certification—a Class 4 impact rating.

Benefits of Brava Synthetic Shingles Against Hail and Wind

As a result of weather and wear, asphalt shingles easily shed their protective granules. Over time, asphalt shingles will leave your home vulnerable to the elements. Metal roofing may dent more easily than other roofing materials, decreasing its beauty. Wood roofing may look fabulous, but it requires high maintenance and expensive installation. Slate is super heavy and can tend to be a bit pricey. Enter synthetic roof shingles—the best-looking shingles with reliable coverage for your home.

Synthetic shingles give you superior protection against wind and hail. Brava synthetic roofing products have the highest Class rating in wind resistance and hail impact resistance. They stand up to regular weather events better than non-wind-resistant shingles do.

Class 4 impact-resistant shingles won’t crack, tear, or split during severe winter storms with winds up to 110 mph. Brava Synthetic Shingles provide all the protection of a Class 4 impact-resistant roofing shingle and more:

Durable Brava Composite Shingles for Snow and Ice

Avoid the expensive damage snow can cause you due to its weight on your roof. If your shingles aren’t resilient, you could see expensive damage result from snow and ice.

When the excessive weight of heavy wet snow or ice rests on a faulty roof, it can exert major pressure on your home and put your roof at risk of collapsing. This type of damage can be expensive and dangerous.

Subpar roofing materials, poor roof drainage, and faulty construction can add to the over stressing of your roof, and compound the problem.

Signs of a possible roof collapse

  • Difficulty opening and closing windows and doors
  • Sagging ceilings
  • Creaking noises

The best way to prevent roof collapse from heavy snow is to choose a roofing material with the strength and resilience to withstand heavy snow and ice. Since Brava composite roof tiles are so durable, moisture won’t leak through or damage your home. These outstanding shingles maintain their integrity during freezing and thawing events, so they are the best roofing material for areas where it snows.

Are synthetic shingles right for your home?

Our "Homeowner's Guide to Synthetic Shingles" can help you decide..

Prevent moisture damage in your home with durable roofing

When snow melts, it can seep through small cracks in your roof and cause water damage to your attic. If left unnoticed, moisture damage can lead to mold and rot, and eventually cause your roof to sag and leak. Problems like mold in your home can agitate respiratory ailments in your family members. The good news is that when you choose a durable roofing shingle that resists cracking, you greatly decrease the possibility of moisture trouble in your home, and safeguard your family from the potential health threats mold can cause.

Brava Roof Shingle Styles

When you want the look of slate, cedar shakes, or Spanish roof tile:

  • Synthetic Slate—This luxury statement is gorgeous and found on exquisite homes in both America and Europe. Brava’s Old World Slate tile gives you the beauty of slate without slate’s high maintenance costs.
  • Synthetic Cedar Shakes—Brava’s cedar shake composite tile gives you the timeless look of real cedar and the confidence your shingles won’t rot, warp, or crack. These gorgeous tiles are available in three different widths so you can get the genuine look of cedar shakes.
  • Synthetic Clay—A composite Spanish roof tile—Brava’s Barrel tile—gives you the elegance of a Mediterranean villa without the added weight and installation costs of real clay. They’re ideal for regions with repeat freeze-thaw cycles because they don’t absorb water and won’t crack or break like traditional clay tiles.

"Replaced the existing siding on my home. Contact and price were discussed thoroughly during the initial discussions. Workers arrived at the scheduled time and were professional in the removal, new installation, cleanup, and onsite conduct. Communication between supervisors, installers and myself was on a daily basis and any issues were addressed immediately. Would not hesitate to use this company again or recommend them."

Beecher R.

"We chose American Way Exteriors to replace our old vinyl siding with Hardie board siding and trim. Throughout the entire process we found the team to be very professional and receptive to our questions about the project. They were constantly in touch with us about when work would start, what to expect each day of the project, and followed up to see if we had concerns. As the project began it was very apparent our house had suffered from poor installation by the builder years ago. The American Way team worked to fix the problems, keeping us well informed along the way. We could not be happier with the finished project both cosmetically and structurally. This is definitely a company we highly recommend exterior projects!"
