Was your home one of those that got hit with hail from the storm that blew through the southern Minneapolis metro area recently?
If it is, we wanted to remind you that we provide storm damage repair, and we’re experienced in working with insurance companies. Even if your area didn’t get hail damage, you might be concerned about your home. That storm has some homeowners asking whether they’ve got the right roof to hold up to hail.
If you’ve got anything other than a metal roof – steel in particular – the answer is, probably not.
Steel is actually one of the best choices to go with when it comes to being in a hail storm. Not only that, but it withstands heavy rains and wind, as well. This means the coated steel is one of the best options and most durable to go with when covering your home.
Here are the many characteristics that make it one of the best roofing choices to go with.
A Steel Roof Is Incredibly Strong
One of the strongest roofing materials on the market, steel has been standing up to the competition for some time now and comes out at the top. Coated steel has zinc and aluminum coating over the top of it, allowing it to withstand a lot more than some of the other metal options on the market.
Steel Roofs Come In a Variety of Styles
All of the steel sheets that come from the warehouse are stamped and sealed prior to being put onto a home. Steel roofing can be formed to look like shingles, shake or tiles. This then provides a beautiful appeal to the roof, while the sealant on it provides additional durability. This roofing holds up incredibly well to hail, allowing you to have peace of mind through the design of the roofing material.
Steel Roofing Is Refinishable
For a much lower cost than replacing the entire roof, a new coating and paint can be applied to the outside layer of the steel roofing material if you decide to change the color scheme of your home. You can’d do that with asphalt shingles!
These are just a few reasons why steel roofing is our top recommendation for Minnesota homeowners. Here are even more benefits to metal roofing.
