Greeley, Colo., July 21, 2011 - With all the hail storms recently, homeowners interested in saving money when building, remodeling, or repairing their homes are encouraged to consider impact-resistant roofing.
"Impact-resistant roofing can certainly save homeowners money because some insurers, including State Farm, offer an annual discount on premiums for qualifying roofs," says State Farm Underwriting Team Manager Jim Lord. "In addition, if your roof avoids damage following a wind or hail storm, you avoid paying a deductible to have it repaired."
Perhaps even more important is the protection you're adding for your home and contents if the roof you invest in does a better job of keeping the elements out. The roof you choose is your home's first line of defense in a storm.
Impact-resistant roofing is available in many forms such as asphalt shingles, concrete tile and metal. While impact-resistant roofing looks the same as roofing material used today, it tends to stand up much better to hail.
Contact your State Farm agent to learn more about the discounts available to you based upon the impact-resistant roofing product you choose.
