Replacing Your Roof after a Minneapolis Storm? Why You Should Consider Steel
Well, the first storm of the Minnesota spring severe weather season has blown through the Twin Cities as well as parts of southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Some areas got hit harder than others, and there were reports of hail up to softball size in some communities. That means some homes in those locations have probably suffered roofing damage. If your house got affected and it’s time to replace your roof, we think you should consider steel.
Why Replace Your Roof with Residential Steel Roofing?
Steel Roofing – Great Impact Resistance Ratings
We are proud to install steel roofing by Kassel & Irons. Whether you choose KasselShake or KasselWood, you’re getting the best impact resistance ratings on a roof that you require. With this brand, you know that the roofing won;t chip or leak, even after you have been through a hail storm like the one we just got. A roof replacement is a major investment, so you want a roof that is going to look new, even after it has been through a hail storm. Of course, if your roof is being replaced because of storm damage, chances are the cost will be covered by your insurance, but you still want to get the best roof possible, right?
Asphalt roofs will become brittle with time and actually break down if a hail storm comes through the area. With Kassel & Irons steel roofing, you don’t have to worry about this. In fact, the steel is rated highly for resistance against the damage that might otherwise be done from hail. Their metal roofing carries the UL 2218 Class IV Impact Resistance rating from Underwriters Lab, an independent testing organization.
Regardless of the brand you choose, look for the impact resistance rating. If the steel roofing that you decide to get is UL2218 certified, then you might be able to get major benefits and discounts on your insurance premiums.
