WADSWORTH, Ohio (March 9, 2021) — Join SOPREMA’s own Darren Perry and KPost Roofing & Waterproofing representatives Aileen Struble and Chris Evans as they talk about Very Severe Hail on the next RoofersCoffeeShop® Coffee Conversations.
FM 4470 was revised in late 2016 to add a higher level of hail resistance—Very Severe Hail (VSH)—to provide FM Approved roofing systems that can better resist very large hail. The change in classification has resulted in changes to U.S. commercial roofing performance requirements and testing methods.
Pour a cup of coffee and bring your questions for these industry experts as we talk Very Severe Hail heading into the 2021 storm season.
