Shingles fail when granule loss exposes the asphalt to the sun. When the asphalt cracks, the matt is unprotected and rapidly deteriorates. Atlas® Stormmaster incorporates SBS rubber to reduce granule loss by 90%.
Atlas® shingles include far more algae-resistant copper-coated granules than competing algae-resistant shingles. Preventing algae lichen growth, helps to further prevent granule loss.
