Diversified Metal Roofing Company specializes in metal and asphalt roofing for residential and commercial buildings. Of the roofing that we are experienced with, homeowners are choosing metal roofing more over other types of roofing as they learn more about it. What they are learning is that the negatives they have heard throughout the years are misconceptions. What they are finding out is that metal roofing has many benefits over conventional roofing because of its durability, affordability, and ability to save on energy costs.
A Cost Effective Roofing Solution
Our Minneapolis metal roofers are focused on providing you with an effective roofing solution. While the cost to install the metal roof may be more initially, the long-term cost is much less than other types of roofing. For instance, a metal roof has been known to last as long as 50 years, while the asphalt roof may last anywhere between 20 and 30 years, depending on the amount of abuse it has endured.
Metal residential roofing is also lightweight, resulting in fast installation. With the introduction of different colors, finishes, and designs, it is easy to find metal roofing that matches the architecture of the home. This is very important in preserving the home’s appearance. A new metal roof also increases the value of your home.
A Long Lasting Investment
Our Minnesota metal roofing company wants our customers to have roofing that will last for decades to come. There are some misconceptions regarding how long the roofing will last. Some believe it will increase the likelihood of lightning strikes, will rust, will cause a lot of noise when it rains, and will dent when it hails. The truth is that metal roofing does not increase the likelihood of lightning strikes, it can actually be quieter than other roofing materials, the coating keeps it from rusting or corroding, and these roofs withstand many years of hail, heavy snow, and high wind. Most of the systems today can stand up to the wind of an F2 tornado.
Other benefits include:
- Reflectivity to reduce the amount of heat absorption in the summer
- No curling, fading, or mildewing
- Made of recycled metal
- Totally recyclable when one day removed from the home
- Petroleum free
- Non-combustible and non-flammable
- Saves on heating and cooling costs
- Some insurance companies give discounts when homes have metal roofs
Metal roofing has proven that it can stand up to some of the most abusive situations, such as a hail storm in 2006 that produced hail stones the size of grapefruit. Metal roofs around the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas that experienced the storm maintained their integrity, while other roofing types were covered in blue tarps shortly after.
