Over a year ago after owners Pat & Julie Quarve returned from the Metal Roofing Summit in Ohio, we interviewed Pat about his thoughts on metal roofing and why he recommends it for homes in Minnesota, especially those here in the Twin Cities. His first choice for our customers is steel roofing from Kassel & Irons, our major supplier and roofing partner.
Residential metal roofing continues to increase in popularity - not only here in Minnesota but also the rest of the country. And we believe that Isaiah Industries (makers of Kassel & Irons steel roofing) produces some of the best quality products in the industry today.Pat went into such detail in that interview about the quality of this metal roofing and why it is perfect for homes in our area that we thought we'd revisit that interview. In light of the summer storm season and the possibility of hail damage, there is one particular thing he talked about that we felt would be a good idea to bring up again. So for those of you who aren't familiar with some of its great characteristics, just this one feature of their steel roofing is a major plus.
Kassel & Irons Steel Roofing: Resistant to Hail DamageAluminum was once the most popular metal roofing in our area, but since it is a soft metal, it doesn't stand up well to hail impact. Even steel roofing can be damaged by hail if it is a thinner gauge. But Kassel & Irons roofing is manufactured using a very heavy gauge steel. It's Kynar coating protects the finish color. And the manufacturing process creates such a variation in surface texture that even if your roof were to be hit by a hailstone the size of a baseball you could barely detect the point of impact.
With the severity of the hailstorms Minnesota get hit with, this is a major selling point for homeowners in our area. And insurance companies like it, too. Often a policy has an exclusion for hail damage, which can result in substantial savings on your insurance premium. With other metal roofing we might not recommend you choose this option, but with Kassel & Irons steel roofing it's definitely something to consider.
Before the next hailstorm threatens your area here in the Twin Cities with damage, why not talk to us about a Kassel & Irons steel roof for your home? It's the last roof you'll ever need - and you'll never again have to fear what a severe storm might do to your roof.
