TruProtect™ is made of the finest components which are treated with environmentally safe materials to help it protect your house or commercial building from fire and smoke damage; mold, mildew, and fungus damage; and hail damage.
Hail damage to roofs costs homeowners in higher insurance premiums and in replacement costs. TruProtect™ is a patented, multi-layer sheet that, when installed under shingles, protects the shingles and the underlying roof.
When hail stones strike shingles, the shingles crack and must be replaced. TruProtect™ installed under the shingles enables the hail impact to be absorbed–the hail stone boomerangs off the roof without causing damage.
In a side-by-side test comparing a roof assembly with Truprotect™ as an underlayment and one without, four-pound steel balls were dropped from a height of 20 feet. Impact locations were then analyzed to determine the damage. The sample using TruProtect received significantly less damage than the sample without TruProtect™. The Truprotect™ roof showed 50% less surface damage and 100% less structural damage.
