Looking for new roof shingles that are durable enough to stand up against harsh Denver winters, while keeping their gorgeous look? F-Wave synthetic shingles are designed to outperform their competition and boast a Class 4 hail resistance, 130 mph wind warranty, UV resistance, and a Class A fire rating.
Their non-toxic makeup creates a sustainable roof shingle that keeps looking fabulous throughout its long life. And their tough, single-piece lightweight construction delivers the authentic look of slate, cedar shakes, or asphalt shingles.
But one of our favorite qualities of F-Wave shingles is their ability to restore themselves to their original condition even after getting scratched or scuffed up. Their self-healing advantages mean you won’t need to spend time and money on repairs during their lifespan—and you can rest at ease that your home is both well protected and beautiful.
How Roof Shingles Become Damaged
Subpar installation of asphalt shingles can lead to blow-off in high winds, causing damage, and creating the need for roof repair or replacement.
- Storms – High winds can remove asphalt shingles, while hail can dent them.
- Age – Mold and mildew growth can form as shingles age and damage them.
Trees can harm roof shingles
Tree branches can scratch and damage your shingles, give animals access to your roof, and allow moisture to accumulate—which over time can cause rot and decay. These problems may lead to leaks and higher utilities bills because your roof shingles are compromised.
Asphalt shingles lose granules and compromise your home’s protection
Over time, traditional asphalt shingles lose granules, causing them to become prone to moisture penetration and rot. As asphalt roofing ages and more granules detach, roof leaks may even result. Asphalt doesn’t self-heal like F-wave shingles, so when their integrity is compromised, they need to be replaced.
Granule loss leads to more problems
Lack of granules on your roof shingles can lead not only to moisture damage but also to cracking and UV degradation.
Additionally, have you ever found asphalt shingle granules in your gutter system? They can keep water from flowing away from your home if you don’t clean them out of your gutters. If you get water pooling around your home due to improper gutter function, your foundation may be at risk of being compromised.
The Benefits of a Roofing Shingle that Self Heals
When you choose synthetic shingles, you get the gorgeous, ultra-dimensional look of premium roof tiles, with the added benefit of no asphalt and no granules.
Rather than putting your biggest investment at risk with unreliable asphalt and other materials, F-Wave shingles stay intact and provide a dependable protective layer for your home.
When the sun meets synthetic shingles—they repair themselves!
F-Wave synthetic shingles contain the built-in technology to self-heal—so no additional repairs are needed for minor scratches.
Created from thermoplastics, these impact-resistant shingles literally harness the heat of the sun to repair damages to their surface. Thermoplastics are the only plastics that don’t lose their durability when under pressure. When they react with heat, their long polymer chains break down into smaller monomers (molecules that react with other molecules to form a bond). And as they begin to cool down, they rearrange into their original form—sealing in any previous damage to protect your home!
When synthetic shingles repair themselves—you avoid the hassle and cost of repairs
A roof should be reliable in spite of the harsh elements. Denver winters can bring extreme temperatures, snow and ice, while spring may usher in high winds and even hail. Here’s the good news—synthetic F-Wave shingles are so well made that even if your roof gets slightly scuffed up from a storm, it will resolve the issue itself—totally. You literally don’t have to do anything to repair scratches or scuffs. The roof does the work itself; its low maintenance and longevity mean you get to spend more time enjoying life!
