The Right Roofing and Siding Can Help Your Forest Lake Home Stand Up to Fire Threats

Posted by at 10:57 AM

Windy days and unusually dry conditions have combined to raise the threat of fires around the Twin Cities area.  Recent reports of grass fires in the Hugo area have some homeowners in outlying Minneapolis and St. Paul areas concerned about their homes' vulnerability to fire.  Quarve Contracting wants you to know that there are steps you can take to protect your home and your family that aren't as drastic as moving out of your wooded lot and closer to a fire department.  For nearly three decades, Quarve has been helping Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners like those in Forest Lake find solutions to their home improvement needs.  And if reducing your home's susceptibility to fire damage is a high priority for you, we can offer you such products as:
  • Steel and other metal roofing - extremely durable but lightweight, and noncombustible.  Sparks falling on a steel or metal roof won't ignite like those landing on asphalt and wood shake roofs can.  And what's more, with the variety of design options and colors available, you can cover your roof with the look of wood shakes or traditional shingles without the flammability danger.
  • Steel siding - also a noncombustible choice, it's a great fireproof skin for the exterior of your home.  And it comes in many beautiful patterns and colors, so fire protection can be attractive as well as efficient.
  • James Hardie Cement Fiberboard Siding - this climate-specific siding product is second only to metal in its fire resistance.  Beautiful yet durable, Hardie siding is designed for specific climate conditions, and we can offer you a product that's been produced with Minnesota's varying and sometimes severe weather in mind.
In addition to offering you greater fire protection than many other exterior building products such as wood, vinyl, or asphalt, these great fire-resistant options from Quarve can also help you reduce your homeowner's insurance costs.  Many insurance companies offer discounts for homeowners who install one or more of these products, so you can save money while you eliminate worry.  Call the leading Minneapolis home improvement company today at (763) 765-1472.  For over 27 years we've been helping Twin Cities homeowners protect and beautify their homes.  Find out how we can help you!
