A Few Good Reasons to Choose MN Metal Roofing

Posted by at 9:00 AM

If it's time for a new roof from your MN home, metal roofing might be the best choice for you to make. Not only does it pay off in the long run, but it is one of the most durable choices of roofing that you can make. It looks great, while providing energy efficiency and strength in a lightweight material, and so many more considerations. Asphalt is currently being pushed to the back burner as metal roofing makes its way onto to homes across the nation. Due to the durability and long lasting life span, metal seems to be a great choice for Minnesota home owners. Not only that, but it is environmentally friendly. Control the temperature in your home and choose a look that suits you while improving the eco-friendliness of your home. A Metal Roof Lasts Longer and Requires Less Maintenance With an asphalt shingle roof, you're probably familiar with the regular inspections that have to be made to ensure shingles are not damaged or missing. Usually repair and replacement is needed after a harsh Minnesota winter. When it comes to metal roofing, you rarely need to have it repaired since it offers such a long lifespan compared to other materials and holds up well to harsh weather, lightning, and high winds. This means you do less work, while the roof stays for years. Metal roofing systems are immune to high winds, snow storms and even downpours. They last 35 or more years longer than other roofing options, even with all of these elements combined. The warranty on the roof is also much longer than what you'd find on others. So if there is a repair that needs to be done, it is cheaper and less labor intensive. Metal roofs are versatile, as well. You can change the design on your home just by changing the roofing profile that is on it.  Adding a metal roof with a different appearance and color than your existing roof can change the entire appearance of your home.  It's a great way to update and refresh the look of an older home. A Metal Roof Can Enhance Your Home's Energy-Efficiency Metal roofs are known for their energy efficiency since they can reflect the sun's ultraviolet rays. This helps to stabilize the temperatures within the home. When you have enough insulation throughout the home and a metal roof, you're actually going to save yourself money on your energy bill each month. So be comfortable in every season that goes by, and spend less on cooling and heating. A Metal Roof is Environmentally Friendly Metal roofs are a 'green' remodeling choice for a number of reasons. They contain a substantial amount of recycled content, and the roofing itself as well as any scraps left after installation are also recyclable.  And due to their light weight, they can usually be installed over an existing roof, meaning that old roofing stays out of a landfill.  And a metal roof, once it reaches the end of its useful life, can itself be recycled.  (Ask your tax professional whether you qualify for any tax incentives for installing a metal roof - there may be some available.) Increase Your Home's Value by Installing a Metal Roof You're able to add curb appeal to the home that you have since a metal roof is an attractive addition.  And at the same time, you are able able to lower your energy bills and have something that will last much longer than other roofing materials. This appeals to potential buyers. It can be a great investment for the future when you decide to have one placed on your home.
