Update Your Home With a Metal Roof


Metal roofing, as the name implies, is a roofing material crafted from metal. At Heritage Exteriors, we specialize in utilizing steel for our metal roofing projects.


Metal  presents numerous advantages that make it a highly attractive choice. Notably, metal roofs boast an impressive resistance to high winds and exceptional durability, with a lifespan often exceeding 40 years. Additionally, metal roofs are lightweight and environmentally friendly, commonly made from recycled materials. The energy efficiency of metal roofs is another plus point. Beyond these practical advantages, metal roofing is available in a diverse range of colors and styles to complement any architecture.


Both residential and commercial structures can effectively utilize metal roofing, as long as the roof isn’t of a low slope. Keep in mind, standing seam metal roofing is an ideal choice for homes because its concealed fasteners offer added protection from the elements. 

It’s also important to check your city’s building codes before opting for traditional metal roofing, as some cities have restrictions on this style within city limits.


Metal roofing primarily falls into two categories: traditional metal roofing and standing seam metal roofing. Traditional metal roofing features visible fasteners when viewed from the ground, while standing seam metal roofing is characterized by vertical seams that conceal these fasteners.


Metal is a strong option for both residential and commercial buildings due to its impressive resistance to high winds. Personal aesthetics also play a role in deciding on a roof. If the modern appeal of metal roofing suits your taste, it’s a great choice for your home or business. For those preferring a more conventional appearance, shingle roofing is an alternative worth considering.

Absolutely! Metal roofing is an excellent choice for Minnesota’s climate. It’s highly durable and can withstand the state’s cold winters, heavy snowfalls, and strong winds. The slick surface of a metal roof allows snow to slide off easily, reducing the risk of snow load and ice damming.

Metal roofing can be more expensive upfront compared to some other types of roofing, like asphalt shingles. However, the longevity and durability of metal roofs often make them more cost-effective in the long run. They require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan, often up to 50 years or more, which can save you money over time.

It is possible to install a metal roof over existing shingles in some cases, and it can be a cost-effective solution. However, the condition of the current roof, local building codes, and other factors must be considered. We recommend consulting with a professional roofing contractor like Heritage Exteriors to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

One of the main benefits of metal roofing is its low maintenance requirement. Typically, you should have it inspected annually to ensure there are no issues, especially after a heavy storm. Other than that, keeping it clear of debris and ensuring proper gutter function is generally all the maintenance a metal roof needs.

No, a metal roof will not make your home colder in the winter. The insulation inside your home primarily controls your home’s temperature, not the type of roofing material. Metal roofs can actually help improve energy efficiency by reflecting heat in the summer, which can help to lower cooling costs.

Yes, a metal roof can increase the value of your home. Given their durability, aesthetic appeal, and energy efficiency, many potential homebuyers view metal roofs as a desirable feature. Consequently, installing a metal roof can contribute to a higher resale value should you decide to sell your home in the future.
