With the tax return filing date coming up next week, as well as  news of potential additional stimulus payments, we'd like to put in our plug for investing those funds in your home.  We recognize that with the financial struggles many are going through as a result of the events of this year, you might not be able to do that.  But if it's at all possible, we'd like you to consider why now is the perfect time to replace your existing roof with a steel or other metal roof.  You can join the many other Minnesota homeowners who have done just that.  And rather than think of it as an expense, put it down as an investment in the future of your home.

Metal Roofing Is an Investment, Not an Expense

We could give you lots of reasons why installing a metal roof is a wise financial move, and we encourage you to check out our page on the benefits of metal roofing.  But here are just a few things to think about:
  • It's likely the last roof you'll ever need. Chances are - even if you're very young - that the metal roof we install this year will outlive you. With asphalt roofing, you can plan on replacing it multiple times over the course of your life.
  • Building professionals consider a new roof to be the largest investment most homeowners will make, so it's important to choose wisely.
  • Metal roofing stands up to Minnesota weather far better than traditional alternatives, so the chance of needing roof repairs - even from hail storms - is minimal. 
  • Return on investment (ROI) is an important factor.  ROI is something that real estate professionals talk about often. It has to do with just how much of the installation cost you can expect to recover in terms of increased value of your home.  With metal roofing, it's close to 86%.

These are just a few of the reasons you should think of a metal roof as an investment and not a cost.  The stock market these days is kind of unstable, but metal roofing shows signs of only becoming more popular.  In fact, having a metal roof on your home adds to the appeal for buyers.  And if you're concerned about investment in the future of our natural environment, metal roofing is considered a very eco-friendly material. It's manufactured from a high proportion of recycled metal, and the entire roof is 100% recyclable.  No other roofing material can claim that!
