Do Farmers Know Something About Roofing That You Don't?

Posted by at 7:33 PM

If you drive through the country, you'll notice that metal roofing is the overwhelming choice of farmers for protecting their barns and outbuildings.  And those same roofs protect a lot more - livestock, equipment, machinery, crops, and feed.  While in the Twin Cities home owners may not raise animals or crops, the roofs over our heads protect much more than our homes - they protect our families, our friends, our possessions, our life-styles.  Doesn't it make sense that the roof over your head should be a durable, effective covering for the things that really matter? More and more, home owners (and commercial property owners as well) are turning to metal roofing--in particular, steel--to replace their deteriorating roofs.  Metal  roofing has many advantages over traditional roofing materials such as asphalt shingles, clay tiles, and wood shakes.  Among them:
  • Metal roofing performs far better than any other roofing material in standing up to moisture and wind
  • Metal roofing is impact resistant, a particular plus in this hail-prone climate
  • Metal roofing is lighter compared to other roofing materials, and often it can be applied over your existing roof - resulting in less labor costs (no tear-offs involved) and less construction debris to be disposed of
  • The life expectancy of a steel or other metal roof is exceptional - it could be the last roof you'll ever need
  • Unlike most traditional roofing products, metal roofing is noncombustible - it's the most fire-safe roofing you can install
  • Metal roofing keeps out invading insects and rodents
Cost savings.  Low maintenance.  Durability.  Fire protection.  Insect and rodent resistance.  You'll get all this and more with metal roofing.  Quarve Contracting, Inc., the St. Paul/Minneapolis area's leading roofing company for over 27 years, is proud to recommend and install metal roofing systems from such top-notch companies as  Kassel & Irons, United States Seamless, Edco, and Metro.  If you'd like to hear more about what farmers already know, contact the experienced metal roofing pros today.   Estimates are always free, and cheerfully given (even to non-farmers).
