    Someone in our neighbourhood had real trouble selling a house that had steel "shingles" (it actually was in larger interlocking sheets). For some unaccountable reason, insurance companies wouldn't cover the roof, despite the fact that when baseball sized hail moved through Fort Worth several years in a row, it was the only house that was not severely affected.
    Now I live out in the English countryside where thatched roofs are common and hail isn't. (Insurance companies are much more reasonable here as well.)
