Minnesota Homeowners Can Celebrate Earth Day All Year Long with Metal Roofing and More

As a company specializing in green exterior remodeling in the Minneapolis area, Earth Day is an annual event that has particular significance for us.  But this year marks a milestone – the 50th year this date has been recognized around the world. Yes, it’s important to draw attention to the need to work together to conserve our natural resources and take action for the good of our entire planet, but we believe that homeowners can take steps to remodel and improve their homes that will have a long-lasting impact.  For example, our seamless steel siding and metal roofing are some of the most eco-friendly building materials available.

Each of us can do our part – and any actions we take, small or large, when compounded by the rest of the world, can make a difference in the future of our planet.  We are in favor of things like reducing carbon emissions and cutting down use of plastic, one of the best ways to make a positive contribution is making changes to our own homes that cut our energy consumption and waste of resources.

We highly recommend metal roofing and siding for both those reasons. They are both considered ‘green’ materials, and they can reduce energy use in a home while reducing materials that go into landfills.  Both steel siding and metal roofing are manufactured using a large proportion of recycled metal, and the scraps as well as the end products are both 100% recyclable.  Metal roofing has a further benefit in that it’s so lightweight that it often can be installed right over asphalt roofing, meaning less trash to be buried somewhere.

If you’d like to learn more about remodeling that can make your home more eco-friendly, check out this article from The Metal Roofing Alliance.  Their #1 tip is to switch to metal roofing.  And they’ve got more ideas as well.
