CertainTeed’s Belmont IR shingles provide extra protection against hail, wind, and airborne debris. In regions that frequently face high winds and extreme weather events, IR shingles offer additional security against the elements.

The LI/NYC area sees squalls and nor’easters almost every season. In a bad storm, impact-resistant shingles could make the difference between minor repairs and a complete roof replacement.

County Roofing Systems has been installing asphalt shingle roofs for over 35 years. We’ve worked with many different types of roofing materials and repaired a lot of roof damage in the LI/NYC area. If you want the strongest, most impact-resistant roof available, drop us a line. Replacing your old roof improves curb appeal and can save you a lot of money in the event of a storm.

Shingle manufacturers use the Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) 2218 test for impact resistance testing. The final rating depends on their ability to resist steel balls dropped from 20 feet above the surface of the shingles. This mimics the impact of hail in a storm with high wind speeds.

  • Class 1 shingles: 31.8 mm (1.25″)
  • Class 2 shingles: 38.1 mm (1.5″)
  • Class 3 shingles: 44mm (1.75″)
  • Class 4 shingles: 50.8mm (2″)


Benefits of using impact-resistant shingles

Impact-resistant shingles make sense if you live in an area that regularly experiences severe weather conditions. An impact-resistant roof is less likely to sustain damage from hail, wind, or flying debris. This saves you money on roof repairs or replacements. 

You may also save money on your insurance premiums with impact-resistant shingles. An impact resistant roof is less likely to sustain damage in the event of harsh weather conditions.

And while impact-resistant shingles may cost a bit more in the long run, they have a longer lifespan. Because CertainTeed builds its Belmont IR shingles to withstand bad weather, they are more durable. This means you won’t have to replace your roof as often, saving you time and money in the long run.


CertainTeed’s Belmont Impact Resistant Shingles can withstand the toughest weather conditions, including hail and high winds. Belmont IR shingles come with a Class 4 impact rating. That’s the highest possible resistance to hail impact. There are no better shingles available when it comes to protecting your roof.

Hail storms and hurricanes only happen occasionally. In the LI/NYC area, algae stains on roofs are a perennial problem. Belmont IR roofing shingles aren’t just Class 4 Impact Resistant. They also come with a 30-year algae resistance warranty.

Belmont IR shingles also offer Class 4 Fire Protection, the best available. Belmont IR shingles resist even significant direct exposure to flame. This protects your house and family against lightning strikes, windblown sparks, and other events.

Integrity Roof System

Belmont IR shingles offer great protection, but they’re only part of CertainTeed’s complete roofing solution, the Integrity Roof System.  

CertainTeed designs every part of the Integrity Roof System to provide optimal safeguards. But your roofers must follow every step of CertainTeed’s detailed instructions to the letter.

As a certified CertainTeed Master Craftsman roofing contractor, County Roofing Systems is eligible for CertainTeed’s best warranties.

1. Waterproofing Underlayment

We install underlayment at vulnerable areas of your roof.  This layer prevents leaks from wind-driven rain. It also helps stop ice dams from building up on your gutter and roof eaves.

2. Water-Resistant Underlayment 

After that layer is installed, CertainTeed roofers add a second layer. This is to provide maximum wind and rain protection

3. Starter Shingles

Starter Shingles prevent water infiltration and wind uplift at the roof edges, overhangs and house eaves. This helps you avoid leaks and damage caused by wind-driven rain. 

4. Shingles

After you have chosen your CertainTeed shingles, County Roofing’s skilled team will install them to CertainTeed’s  specifications.

5. Hip & Ridge Caps

Hip and ridge caps don’t just look good. They provide additional wind protection. CertainTeed’s 130 MPH wind warranty  requires hip and ridge cap installation. 

6. Ventilation

The Integrity Roofing System provides ventilation ducts to ensure your roof receives proper ventilation. This protects shingles from heat damage in the summer and ice dams in the winter.

Keep in mind that shingles grow more brittle and less impact-resistant as they age. You need to keep up with long-term roof maintenance. 

You should also have your roof inspected after a major storm. Hail can cause minor cracks and barely noticeable damage that can grow worse over time if not repaired immediately.

Also remember that no product is hail proof. A severe hail storm can damage any building. But an impact-resistant roof can save you from or substantially reduce damage to your home.

Our team can take care of roof inspections and shingle damage after a bad storm. We spot issues that most roofing contractors would miss. That means we take care of little problems before they can become big problems. 

If you’re concerned about how your roof is faring against the weather, give us a call. We’ll do a complete and thorough roof inspection. We will either give it a clean bill of health, or let you know about anything we find. We’ll then work with you to find solutions that fit your budget.
