In Minnesota, a Metal Roof Requires a Metal Roofing Professional

Posted by at 9:00 AM

Here in Minnesota - as in the rest of the U.S. - metal roofing is fast becoming the #1 choice for houses. It's already at the top of the list for architects and builders, and homeowners are catching on as well.  Of course, farmers and other rural residents have known for years that it's the best thing to protect their valuable investment in barns and other buildings. And now those who own houses are finding out that it's the best roofing material for their homes, too. But roofing contractors haven't necessarily kept pace with the trend.  One thing you should know if you are considering having a metal roof installed on your home is that not all roofing companies are experienced in metal roof installation.  And even those who do install metal roofs may not be familiar with the particular installation methods for each type or brand of metal roofing.

Metal Roofing Installation Requires Experience and Specialized Training

Yes, the basics of preparing the roof (underlayment and other materials that need to be put on before the roofing itself) are fairly standard regardless of the outer material that makes up the roof. But that's where the similarities stop.  Metal roofing uses a different installation process and different tools than asphalt shingles, wood shakes, or slate.  In addition, the manufacturers of each line of metal roofing have their own specifications for proper installation. But being licensed as a Minnesota roofing contractor doesn't mean a company knows how to install a metal roofing.  So if you're considering having a metal roof installed on your home here in the Twin Cities area or the surrounding communities, you'll want to look for a roofing company that is both experienced in metal roof installation and trained or certified by the manufacturer of the metal roofing you've chosen. Here at Quarve, we've been installing metal roofing for decades.  Our roofing installation crews are given hands-on training in our shop, where we've constructed a roof mock-up with the assistance of one of our major suppliers, Isaiah Industries.  They manufacture most of the metal roofing we install, such as Kassel & Irons and Classic Metal Roofing.  We are also trained in manufacturer-specific installation procedures by Arrowline/EDCO metal roofing, our other product. Metal roofing (along with metal siding) is our specialty, so you've got the assurance that when you work with Metal Roofing & Siding of Minnesota (a division of Quarve), you've got metal roofing pros who know exactly what we're doing.  And don't just take our word for it - there are hundreds of homes around the Minneapolis and St. Paul area know protected with metal roofs from Quarve.  Just check out our Google Maps feature and take a look for yourself. For the very best in metal roofing - both materials and installation - don't settle for 'okay' - look for the very best.  And according to our customers who have been kind enough to post reviews and testimonials, that would be us!
