Did you know that choosing a contractor that specializes in green remodeling products and techniques can help you save more than the environment?  That's right, Quarve Contracting, the leading roofing and exterior home improvement contractor in the Twin Cities area, specializes in green remodeling for Minneapolis and the surrounding area.  For nearly three decades they've been helping home and business owners in the St. Paul and Minneapolis metro area protect and preserve the investment they've made in their properties.  And Quarve is committed to helping protect and preserve Minnesota's environment as well.  That's why they use green building techniques, and offer many building materials which are green as well.  Some qualify for EnergyStar ratings, and many can help you save money on your property insurance as well as your heating and cooling bills.  In fact, we've completed two projects in the metro area which have qualified for a MN GreenStar rating.
  • Steel roofing, siding, and James Hardie fiber cement siding products are extremely fire resistant.  In addition to being made from renewable resources, these roofing and siding materials also may qualify for a reduction in your homeowner's insurance due to their low likelihood of combustion.
  • Energy-efficient replacement windows and doors, which can help you cut your heating and cooling bills.  Well-fitted windows and doors help keep air drafts out in the winter and keep the cool air inside in the winter.  Options such as gas filling, triple panes, and tinting can increase energy efficiency as well.
  • Steel roofing is extremely lightweight, meaning that unlike many other roofing materials, it can be installed over your existing roof.  That means no tear-off and disposal costs, and less construction waste ending up in landfills.
  • Seamless steel siding - manufactured on-site to fit, resulting in less construction waste to dispose of.  Seamless siding also means no gaps to allow air infiltration or leakage.
