HAAG 4/09 Shingle Gauge


CLAIM-A-NATOR has beefed up the 4/09 Shingle Gauge™ with a heavy duty nylon webbing attachment for fast and reliable access to and from the tool belt. With a RAPID military grade, auto-locking snap hook that allows for one handed connect and disconnect operation. Designed to fit comfortably and securely in the hand while maneuvering the gauge in and out of stubborn shingles.  

A CLAIM-A-NATOR must have for those carrier specific requirements. 

4/09 Shingle Gauge™measures the thickness of a shingle, and based on analyses made by Haag, correlates that thickness to a warranty level. Knowing a warranty level can be important in determining what a comparable replacement shingle might be. While the Shingle Gauge™ was designed with the strictest analytical tolerances possible, we still consider it an estimating tool due to a small number of shingles which do not conform to the gauge. Haag created the 4/09 Shingle Gauge™ by testing asphalt-based composition shingles. Modified asphalt shingles (commonly called "impact resistant") were not included in our testing and are not applicable to the 4/09 Shingle Gauge™.

Haag Engineering's Research/Testing Dept. will continue to monitor the industry and evaluate the Shingle Gauge to deliver the most accurate estimating tool possible.

How do you use the “4/09” Shingle GaugeTM?
1. Locate the appropriate shingle type on the Gauge (3-tab asphalt fiberglass or 3-tab organic), and use that part of the Gauge to take your measurement.
2. Gently lift a shingle tab and slide the Gauge onto the butt end of the tab.
3. Stop and take your reading when you feel the slightest resistance.
