If you've been considering re-roofing your house with steel or other metal roofing, congratulations! You've selected what is fast becoming the #1 roofing choice for homeowners here in the Minneapolis metro as well as across the rest of Minnesota and the entire U.S. So your next question might be when you should have the work done. One of the great things about metal roofing is that it is ALWAYS good time to get it installed. Unlike other type of roofing, installation of a steel or other metal roof isn't affected by the outdoor temperature.
Did you know that industry experts advise against installing asphalt roofing when the temperature drops below 40°F? Or at temperatures above 85°F? Adhesives are used in asphalt shingle installation that need a temperature in that range to activate properly. But metal roofing installation doesn't involve those adhesives. Did you know that asphalt roofing shingles can become very brittle when the temperature is below freezing? That's another reason installation of this type of roofing in cold weather is not recommended. But again, the outside temperature - even extreme cold - doesn't have this affect on metal roofing.
