In the words of the old Ghost Busters song, "There's something strange in the neighborhood." Well, not exactly strange, just less than traditional.  What might be strange to some is the metal roofing that is starting to show up on homes in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area.  Many of those roofs have been installed by our brand, Minnesota Metal Roofing & Siding. Why are so many Twin Cities homeowners opting for metal roofing when they need to replace their existing roofs?

Metal roofs have many well-known advantages - durability, longevity, and the ability to increase home value. Plus, they come in a huge range of colors, textures and styles. In fact, they could give your home just the facelift it needs while protecting it magnificently from the elements that Minnesota weather tends to throw at us.

Metal Roofing is Perfect for Your House, Your Look

We each have our own unique tastes, which extend to our homes, inside and out. And even though it's a practical feature, there's no reason that personal taste can't be incorporated in a roof.  Often when people think of metal roofing, or roofing in general, we immediately think of only one color and a uniform texture. However, advances in material manufacturing have created some beautiful options to individualize each building. One of the prettiest, and most distinctive, options is the multi-tone alternative. For instance, “aged copper” is an available color that adds a note of sophistication to any house and brings the suggestion of warmth to the mind of whoever sees it. That’s just one example of the color schemes available. Some of our roofing comes in tones that have flecks of different colors.  That's what the owners of the house shown here chose when they had us install a metal roof as a base for their new solar panel array. When you’re shopping around for metal roofing contractors, feel free to ask about what they have to offer. Do they just install one type or style?  Keep looking. Other roofing contractors - like us - install a variety of metal roofing styles and colors because we know that no one roof is perfect for everyone.

Even if you have a larger job, it’s still possible to customize the materials used for your roof to achieve the look you want. There may also be situations where you could get a great comparative price on your customization. When you don’t want to go to the trouble of full customization, there are pre-made colors, including stock and specialty options.

Regardless of whether you want a modern look or something more natural, a metal roof is a wise investment. Not only will you enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your roof will last for decades, you’ll be able to rest assured that it will stand up to the severe elements so common here in Minnesota.
