long-term relationships, intel from the field and years of experience to inno- vate a wide range of products that'll meet most every need. In addition, we take pride in staying responsive to code chang- es [and] proactively working to stay ahead of shiƁs in order to help our contractors remain compliant." Nordic shingles offer a Class 4 impact resis- tance rating, which enables homeowners to obtain a discount on home insurance if available in their area, he continues. The product earned the rating through independent testing in accordance with the FM 4473 standards, during which man-made ice balls were propelled at Nordic shingles with an air cannon (rating does not act as a warranty). Dynasty now comes in four additional high-defi- nition colors—Shadow Brown, Emerald Green, Monaco Red and Atlantic Blue—for a total of 15 shades. ROOFPRO, the new loyalty program, will provide contractors with comprehensive business support tools, Campbell says. Contractors also will benefit from the education resources, industry events, and extended limited warranties. Metal Mechanisms The Snap-Clad standing seam metal roof panel from Petersen Aluminum has proven popular be- cause of its performance in extreme conditions and ease of installation, says Rob Heselbarth, director of communications for Petersen | PAC-CLAD. The company thoroughly tests Snap-Clad for wind up- liƁ and fire resistance, as well as other performance standards and codes, he explains. "Plus, its snap-together seams connect quickly and do not require a mechanical seamer, which saves time and money," Heselbarth adds. Snap- Clad features an optional factory-applied sealant bead for improved weather resistance, a 1-3/4-inch leg/seam height, and a continuous interlock for enhanced structural performance and wind resis- tance. The concealed-fastener clip system allows long-term value of a home with enhanced curb appeal, and the other are the practical owners who understand the economic sense of a roof system that—in many cases—can both last the lifetime of the home and reduce energy consumption," Chalmers says. "Our aesthetic efforts are aimed at staying ahead of ongoing architectural trends. Our function-driven efforts [assure] efficiency for installers, and sustainability and durability for owners, helping to realize both long-term energy savings and a low environmental footprint that comes with products designed to last a lifetime." Performance Properties IKO released the Nordic performance shingle line and expanded its Dynasty performance shingle line for 2019. The products have been a response to homeowners who demand high-performance products without sacrificing beauty and curb ap- peal, says Scott Campbell, director of field sales in the U.S. The company also debuted ROOFPRO, a program to help contractors build business. "Increased severe weather across North America has further solidified the need for per- formance, especially wind resistance, in roofing shingles," Campbell notes. "As we all know, a roof is the most essential aspect of shelter, whether for a home or a commercial property. It endures high winds, hail, heat, cold, moisture and flying debris, all the while keeping what's under it safe." Both Nordic and Dynasty feature ArmourZone, an innovative 1-1/4-inch wide, reinforced nailing surface that ensures strong fastening power. Nails applied in this area become positioned to help re- sist nail pull-through and shingle blow-off; in fact, shingles with ArmourZone are designed to resist winds up to 130 mph, and they include Fastlock sealant strips for a stronger bond, he adds. "Each new product offering is the result of re- search—both informal and formal—in the field," Campbell explains. "We take what we learn from PETERSEN ALUMINUM offers PAC-CLAD metal roofing (top) and Snap-Clad (above), a standing seam metal roof panel that can save time and money during installation.
