Products Qualifying for Impact Resistant Roofing Credits

as of July 2014

Index

Important Notices

The amount of discount for each class of roofing material is established on a company-by-company basis. Please check with your insurance company to learn the discounts available for Class 1, 2, 3 or 4 roofing products.

NOTE: To qualify for the credit, roof coverings must be tested by an approved laboratory. Roof coverings that have passed the UL Standard 2218 test are classified as either Class 1, 2, 3, or 4. A Class 4 roof covering receives the highest premium credit. The list of approved laboratories is shown below.

NOTE: As you contact various contractors or suppliers, you should ask about roofing materials that meet UL Standard 2218. Below is a list of manufacturers of roof coverings that TDI has verified as meeting the new discount requirements and the UL Standard 2218 test.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: After January 1, 1999, all manufacturers of roofing materials* eligible for the impact-resistant roofing discount adopted by the Texas Department of Insurance must label their products with the following information:

  • the proper Underwriter's Laboratories label or label from any other testing lab approved by the Texas Department of Insurance.
  • the impact-resistance classification (Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, Class 4) of the product under U.L. Standard 2218.
  • the manufacturer's name.
  • the year manufactured.
  • the brand name of the roofing product.

Roofing materials that do not comply with this requirement, even though they meet the required impact-resistance standard, DO NOT qualify for the roofing discount.

*Roofing materials may be in the form of shingles, tiles, shakes, panels or sheets.

NOTE: The Texas Department of Insurance does not endorse or recommend any product.

  • Due to numerous requests, we are providing the list as a service.
  • Other qualified products not on the list may be available.

We plan to update this list periodically and will discontinue this listing once the information is readily available. Please keep in mind that additional qualifying products may become available but not be added to this list immediately.

Important: Always verify that roofing material to be installed has been properly labeled as described under Important Notices.
