You Don't Have To Give Up Durability and Savings When Choosing Green Roofing

Posted by at 4:57 PM

Choosing to use green building products in remodeling is one of the important ways that Minnesota homeowners can lessen their environmental impact.  Building products are often bulky items, and if construction debris is not rreyclable, it ends up in landfills.  And if materials are used that are not energy-efficient, the homeowner ends up consuming more energy to heat and cool the home, which also costs more. Quarve Contracting, serving the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area for nearly three decades with exterior remodeling services such as roofing, is committed to providing quality products and quality workmanship, with an emphasis on green building materials and green construction practices.  Quarve believes it is important to put the homeowner's best interest ahead of their own, and that's one of the reasons they recommend green roofing such as Premier Steel Systems from Kassel & Irons. Kassel & Irons manufactures two lines of beautiful residential steel roofing - Kasselwood and Kasselshake.  These products are designed to replicate real wood, but provide the benefits, strength, and durability of steel without the need for cutting trees.  Kassel & Irons steel roofing incorporates recycled steel content finished with environmentally-responsible coatings.  And the steel grade they use - galvanized G90 - is the best in the industry.  Most competitors use an inferior grade of steel and don't finish their product with durable coatings.  Kassel & Irons leads the industry in setting the coatings standard for steel roofing. Steel roofing is lightweight despite is incredible strength and durability.  One green advantage this provides is that in most cases it can be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the need to tear off the roof and dispose of the old materials.  And the life expectancy of Kassel & Irons steel roofs exceeds other traditional roofing choices, which means the roof will last longer, all without any maintenance required. And finally, lessening the environmental impact even more, because of its unique design, Premer Steel Roofing Systems are extremely energy efficient, and homeowners who have installed Kassel & Irons steel roofing have noted a significant reduction in their energy consumption for heating and cooling - another environmental plus. Quarve Contracting is the Twin Cities' area's dealer/installer for Kassel & Irons Premier Steel Roofing Systems.  If you're interested in finding out more about how you can green up your lifestyle, call Quarve today to discuss installing a steel roof on your home.
