We all want to save money. Regardless of whether we own a home or run a business, the goal is always the same: to save money. However, owning property certainly comes with its vast maintenance and upkeep, especially in Minnesota.


Now that the summer is—hopefully— here, many property owners are scoping out their roofs for potential storm damage. If you are a property owner, and you have sustained significant damage this winter due to having an older roof or from past storm, then you may want to consider a new steel roof system. Why a new steel roof?


Here are some tips on how property owners can save money with a new steel roof.


Improve Efficiency


Metal roofs are known to be significantly more energy efficient than roofs with standard asphalt shingles, which is the most commonly-used roofing material. Metal roofs are more efficient because they reflect the sun’s heat rather than absorb it like asphalt shingles. In addition, steel roofs are more durable and last up to 30 years longer, bringing us to the next point…


A Better Return on Investment


While steel roofs are often a little more expenive upfront than the traditional ashpalt roof, metal roofs are more durable and last longer, especially in extremely severe weather. They even come with a life-time warranty. Severe weather can include rain, hail, snow, ice and even high winds. Steel roofs can handle winds up to 160 miles per hour, but only if installed by a certified metal roofing contractor.


Therefore, they are a better investment not only for installation purposes but also in saving on energy costs and improving home efficiency.

Steel Roofing is Green Roofing


Metal roofs are also green roofs. Steel is 100% recyclable, making them an efficient and green choice.


Of course installing a steel roof greatly depends on the area of the country in which you live, however, there are a lot of great benefits to steel roofing as outlined above. Not only are these benefits that improve efficiency and are even environmentally friendly, but they also help property owners save money and even maximize their returns.
