Anyone using impact resistant asphalt shingles?
Apparently there are hail-resistant shingles-- they use a rubber in the shingle so it's less brittle and more resistant to impact. My insurance agent tells me we could save hundreds of dollars a year if our roof were impact resistant, and we may also save ourselves the cost of our deduction and the hassle of replacing a roof after a hail storm.
I can talk to my builder about them, but I was curious if anyone here has experience with them. What's the cost compared to architectural shingles? Are you happy with the appearance?
