Metal Roofs Don't Need to Look the Same

Posted by at 9:00 AM

Often as we first talk about metal roofing with potential customers here in the Minneapolis area, we've found that some of them still have the mind picture of those gray ridged roofs that are typical of barns and pole buildings. First of all, that's not the type of metal roofing we install. Those roofs are for the most part standing seam zinc roofs. Residential metal roofing is very different.

Residential Metal Roofs Come in Many Styles and Colors

When we pull out our steel and other metal roofing samples and our literature, homeowners are often pleasantly surprised at all the colors and styles available. Want a red roof?  No problem!  Or maybe a deep blue?  We've got that, too.  Love your old wood shake roof but it has deteriorated beyond being salvaged, and your insurance company keeps upping your premium?  We've got metal roofing that resembles wood shakes. And since it's fire-resistant, you probably would get a cut in your premium, not an increase. There are other style profiles available as well.  Like the look of slate but worried your home couldn't support its weight?  We've got metal roofing you'll swear is slate.  And for those who love the traditional look of asphalt shingles, we have that, too - but your metal roof will outlast at least 2 asphalt roofs, maybe more. We've been installing metal roofing on homes here in the Twin Cities for decades. We'd love to take you on a drive and point out some of our projects, but that's not very feasible.  But we CAN give you access to a Google map so you can check out some of the homes close to yours.  Or you could click through the photos in our metal roofing project gallery for just a few of the roofs we have installed in the metro. Metal roofing is fast becoming one of the most popular choices for homeowners.  It's already very popular with architects and builders. Even the tiny home movement recognizes the benefit of metal roofing.  Plus it's one of the most eco-friendly choices in roofing today.  Interested in taking a closer look?  Contact us today to set up a free in-home consultation.  We'd love to show you what's available and talk with you more about the fantastic benefits of metal roofing for Minnesota homeowners.
