Posted by at 9:00 AM

If you are like most Minnesota homeowners with asphalt shingle roofs that are tired of continual repairs and maintenance, then you must also be ready to find an alternative which is durable, excelling in performance and beauty. If you want a roof that lasts last many years longer than other roofing materials, metal roofing might be your answer. Metal roofs exhibit curb appeal, energy efficiency, and longevity - outperforming all conventional slate, shingle, and shake roofs. There are many reason to choose a metal roof; here are three of them that are outstanding. Go Green With Metal Roofing Metal roofs will not use any space in landfills - they are 100% recyclable. At least 25% of a metal roof is made up of recycled content (with some brands, it's even higher). Metal roofing is extremely durable and light, with excellent thermal emissivity and solar reflectivity. Compared to conventional roofs, metal roof surfaces can be approximately 100º cooler. The U.S. Department of Energy states if offers an immediate reduction in cooling demands by 10-15%. Metal Roofing Will Enhance Your Home's Beauty Metal roofs can help save you up to 40% off your cooling costs with its amazing energy efficiency. They also come in many styles and colors to choose from. They are a great choice for low-pitch roofs, historic homes, and commercial buildings. Curved roofs are able to be created due to metal being extremely malleable. Customization is possible by emulating any material for roofing such as shakes, slates, shingles, and more. Metal - A Roof You Can Trust Forever In addition to metal roofs delivering excellent energy efficiency and customization flexibility, a metal roof's lifespan is 2-3 times longer than shingle roofs. There is no maintenance involved with metal roofs, unlike shingle roofs (which need frequent care). Asphalt shingle roofs start to deteriorate within a short time, even under normal weather conditions, because of ultraviolet rays from the sun. Metal roofs are able to withstand Mother Nature’s harshest weather as well as UV ray damage. Metals roofs last for more than 50 years, unlike conventional roofs which last only 15-25 years. To ensure all these promises are lived up to, a majority of metal roof come with a limited transferable warranty of 50 years. If you want a roof that outshines other roofing materials in beauty, longevity, and energy efficiency, a metal roof is your solution.
