Why Minnesota Homeowners Should Invest in a New Metal Roof

Posted by at 9:32 AM

With all the home shows we've been at this spring, we have gotten a chance to talk to lots of homeowners in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area about the terrific metal roofing we install. If you're not familiar with metal roofing for homes and think it's just for barns and pole buildings, we'd like to share a few things about this exceptional material and why it's our #1 recommendation when someone is in the market for a new roof.

Why You Should Consider a Metal Roof for Your Minnesota Home

When looking for new roofing for your home, it’s easy to be drawn in by the allure of affordable asphalt shingle roofing. It’s cheap, easy to install and can be put up quickly. And for many years it's been the #1 roofing choice in the U.S.  But that doesn't mean you should automatically select asphalt for your next roof. Unfortunately, having your roof replaced with asphalt shingles is not the best investment for a number of reasons. Instead, you should look for a product that’s going to last more than 15-20 years. Did you know that due to sun and weather factors, some asphalt roofs need to be replaced in less than 10 years?  You might need to have a new asphalt roof 4 or more times in the same time period as a metal roof is expected to last. With the concern about our natural resources and green living, you should be looking for a roof that's going to improve the energy efficiency of your home.  And due to the severe storms we often get here in Minnesota (as well as our harsh winters), your next roof should also provide some much-needed weather resistance that shingles simply can’t offer. One of the best roofing options on the market today is a steel roof, and they’re actually more affordable than you might think. Our Durable Metal Roofing Options At Quarve we offer strong Arrowline metal roofing as well as steel roofing options from Kassel & Irons.  Both companies offer metal roofing lines that are built-to-last and made to stand up to extreme weather, while offering optimal protection to a home or building. The roofing offers a long-term expected lifespan that will last 40 years or longer without much maintenance necessary.
  • Metal roofing is highly durable, and it is a roofing product that you can rely on to protect your home for decades.
Our Metal Roofing Is Energy Efficient It doesn’t make sense to pay more for heating or cooling than necessary, which is why it makes so much sense to invest in metal roofing when possible. That’s because the right type of metal roofing can actually lower your cooling and heating costs throughout the year. The roofing enhances your insulation, while keeping the sun from heating up your home during the summer. And our installation process creates an insulating and ventilating layer of air flowing under the roof itself.  With a metal roof, you won’t have to spend as much to keep your home cool during the hot months, and you’ll even enjoy benefits during the wintertime as well. Metal roofing may cost more than asphalt shingles to install initially, but it will hold out nicely over time. And it offers a truly exceptional value compared to the short lifespan that shingles can provide. Isn't it time to consider switching to a metal roof?  You'll be making the investment to strengthen your home and decrease the number of times you’ll have to change your roofing while you live in your home.
