IMPACT RESISTANT ROOFING
a Rustic Shingle roof be walked on?
Yes, you can walk on a Rustic Shingle roof. You must step on the upper half
of the panels where they taper to rest on the roof deck. If you have a roof area
that receives regular foot traffic, we offer an optional foam backer that
fills the airspace beneath the shingle and offers added walkability.
Rustic Shingle noisy in the rain?
No, most homeowners notice no difference. The wood-grain texture of the panel
keeps it from reverberating like flat metal roofing does. Normal attic
insulation also absorbs most of the sound. We've never had a complaint about
rain noise with a Rustic Shingle roof.
Rustic Shingle has passed UL 2218 Impact Testing with a Class IV rating, the
highest available. This means Rustic Shingle qualifies homeowners for
hail-resistant roofing discounts on their homeowners' insurance in some
states (ask your insurance agent for full details). In addition, the Kynar
finish is warranted not to chip due to hail impact. Finally, because Rustic
Shingle is constructed of high-quality aluminum, it doesn't lose its
impact-resistance with age like other roofing materials do. So while other roofing products provide less and less
protection for your home each year, homes protected by Rustic Shingle
maintain their lasting dependability for years and years to come.
What warranty is offered on Rustic Shingle?
Rustic Shingle is backed by an industry-leading three-part warranty
- Lifetime Warranty protection for the original
purchasers of a Rustic Shingle roof, so long as they live in that
- 50-Year Transferable protection for those owners
and all future owners including coverage on the finish and hail
- 20-Year Fade protection that says, after 20 years,
the finish and color on Rustic Shingle will be within a very small,
verifiable change from the color it was the day it was installed. Please
contact your local Rustic Shingle dealer for a copy of this unmatched
Can Rustic Shingle be installed on my roof?
Rustic Shingle installation requires a minimum pitch of 3 in 12. The
product is often installed over existing roofs without a tear-off. Your
Rustic Shingle dealer can determine if your roof, like most, is suitable
for a Rustic Shingle roof-over. Of course, Rustic Shingle is perfect for
new construction too, requiring solid decking and 30# felt underlayment.
What's the price per square foot?

premise visit and we will prepare a personalized quote for you. Rustic
Shingle is a premium roofing product, but we cannot suggest an installed
price as every roof is different.
