Why It Makes Sense to Invest in Metal Roofing in Minnesota

Posted by at 9:00 AM

Here at Quarve, we’re motivated to help our customers find quality roofing that’s not only going to look nice but also last for many years and perform exceptionally well over the long run. That’s why we’re so comfortable recommending metal roofing to our customers here in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro nearly every single time. Sure, asphalt roofing is still popular.  And it's likely that most of the homes around you have asphalt shingle roofs.  While asphalt shingles probably seem like a good way to save money on a purchase, they’re actually much more costly than you may realize, and they are rarely a good deal for a homeowner who is going to remain in their home for more than two decades. Metal roofing lasts longer, offers energy efficiency benefits, and stands up to extreme weather better than other roofing materials.

The Benefits of Metal Roofing

  • Long Lasting
It’s common for modern metal roofing to last 40 years or longer, and some types of metal roofing last twice that long. Metal roofing has been used in Europe for a long time, and some of those roofs are over 100 years old! When compared to the average lifespan of 10 to 20 years for asphalt shingles, it’s easy to see how going with metal can be a good value even when you have to pay more. An increased investment in your roofing can help give you a good solid solution for two, three or four times as long as those less-costly shingles would have. When you plan on having a home over the long term, it’s obvious how you should spend your money.
  • Durable
One of the first types of roofing to begin failing in a heavy storm (especially one with hail) is asphalt shingles. You’ll lose a couple here and there until eventually you’re suffering from serious leaks in your home. Metal roofing stands up to winds of up to 140 MPH without coming loose, and it offers superior protection that you just can’t get from softer materials. It’s a recommended type of roofing in you live in a windy location and you want good performance over time. It is also very resistant to hail damage.
  • Energy Efficient
Another benefit of metal roofing that many people don’t realize is that it’s very energy efficient. Metal roofing can help you lower your cooling costs throughout the year and help you save money over time. The process we use to install the metal roofing actually helps to increase the insulation of your home by forming an air barrier between your roof decking and the roofing itself. That’s not something that you’ll benefit from with asphalt shingles. Metal roofing is a solid option of you are looking for a way to improve your home.
