Metal roofing is used on a variety of different homes from large mansions to the standard 4-bedroom rambler. Metal roofs provide energy savings, beauty, and protection for your home that can last a lifetime. Residential metal roofs are available in a wide variety of designs to complement any style home. Offered in a rainbow of colors, your metal roof can be a traditional vertical seam profile, or be manufactured to resemble wood shake, slate, shingles or clay tiles.
In return for choosing a metal roof, and paying more upfront, you will save money in the long term with the added benefit of environmental friendliness. Traditional roofing materials, including asphalt shingles, supply an estimated 20 billion pounds of waste to U.S. landfills annually, whereas metal roofs can often be installed over an existing roof, eliminating the cost and eco-impact of tear-off and disposal.
Many residential metal roofs now utilize reflective pigment technology, which results in overall home energy efficiency and lower utility bills. In addition, all metal roofs are made from 30-60% recycled material.
While other people in your neighborhood may need to replace the roof on their home multiple times over the years, having a high-quality metal roof can help you avoid having to replace your roof as it will most likely be the last roof you ever have to put on. Metal roofing is tough to crack, and rarely shrinks or erodes. A metal roofing system will also stand up against intense weather conditions including the heavy Minnesota snow, hail storms and freezing temperatures.
