ATLANTA – Roofing contractors now have more options to offer homeowners seeking the architectural look of slate or shake in a variety of vibrant colors.
Atlas Roofing® Corporation’s StormMaster® Shake and StormMaster® Slate shingles are manufactured with the power of Scotchgard™ Protector to defend against algae streaks and stains to help maintain the shingles’ original color.
StormMaster shingles are manufactured with rubberized SBS technology for enhanced strength and durability, which enabled them to successfully pass testing for wind resistance of up to 130 mph. The SBS modified asphalt provides greater granule adhesion and longer shingle life expectancy due to a slower aging process than normal asphalt.
Atlas’ StormMaster shingles are Class 4 Impact Resistance tested, which is the highest possible rating level, and meet or exceed the UL 2218 performance standards, giving property owners unprecedented natural disaster protection that goes beyond virtually all building codes.
Many home insurers offer premium discounts for homeowners who install Class 4 impact resistant shingles. This gives roofing contractors additional continuous benefits to offer homeowners when they select Atlas impact resistant shingles.
Residential architects, home builders and replacement contractors can include the Atlas StormMaster shingles in their projects to gain the Fortified for Safer Living® designation, a single-family dwelling construction program created by the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS).
Atlas StormMaster® Shake and StormMaster® Slate architectural shingles come with an “industry best” Lifetime Limited Warranty against algae streaks and stains in all colors and styles available. For more information visit, www.AtlasRoofing.com.
