As spring is about to hit Minnesota, we find that many of the homeowners we talk to have green on their minds.  And not just the grass and foliage; they're concerned about the environmental impact of their remodeling and home improvement choices.  One major area of concern is roofing.  You have many options for replacing the roof on your home, but we'd like you to consider metal roofing.

One of the greener options for roofing on the market, metal roofing is one of the best ways to go. We've installed hundreds of steel and other metal roofs on homes throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Not only are those homeowners saving money and time, but they are also reducing waste.  

Why Is Metal Roofing a Green Option?

Many homeowners in Minnesota and the rest of the U.S. are turning their attention to the eco-friendly, sustainable choices on the market today.  Metal roofing is one of the greenest solutions on the market today.

Residential Metal Roofing Popularity: Metal roofing for homes has gained popularity in the market today because it not only protects the home far longer than asphalt but is the most eco-friendly option. You save money on your energy bill and ensure that you’re also keeping the heat and cold air inside the home.  And because it's so light weight, metal roofing can usually be installed on top of an existing asphalt roof.  That means saving money as well as reducing waste because no tear-off of the old roof is required.  

Energy Efficiency: The most energy efficient on the market of all roofing materials, it provides the homeowner with a way to spend less money on their home heating and cooling bills but also can help to provide more comfort inside the home.A white or light colored metal roof may save you up to 60% on your heating bill as compared to asphalt shingles. 

Longevity: Metal roofing can easily last for 50 years or more, making it one of the longest lasting roofing materials on the market. It provides the homeowner with a way to protect their home without having to worry about replacing the roofing material time and time again.  (In our area you can expect a quality asphalt roof to last 12-20 years at best, so you do the math.)

Recyclable and Recycled: Metal roofing is completely recyclable and is made from a high proportion of recycled metal as well.  If you opt for a steel roof, you're choosing one made from the most recycled material in the U.S.
