Pondering a Metal Roof? Here’s What You Need to Know!

Residential metal roofing is one of the fastest growing segments of home improvement, quadrupling its market share of the industry over the last 10 years. According to the National Association of Home Builders Research, the recycled content from production to installation to reuse of metal roofing is 56%, which is far superior to its asphalt roofing counterpart, having 20 billion pounds of asphalt shingles dumped in landfills every year. 

Metal roofing is an excellent insulator keeping your Midwest home comfortable regardless of the weather outside and can even lower your cooling and heating bills.

What are the Benefits of Metal Roofs?

Metal roofs are becoming more popular in Minnesota and Wisconsin because of their long-term performance characteristics, such as 50-year metal and 35-year finish warranties, not to mention their strength, unmatched durability and being maintenance free. Metal roofing is unmatched compared to other roofing materials. It exceeds its competition in recyclability, energy efficiency, product safety and weight.

  • Recyclability – metal roofing is 100% recyclable.
  • Energy Efficiency – reported energy savings as high as 20% on heating and cooling costs.
  • Product Safety – noncombustible material for increased fire protection.
  • Weight – less weight load on the structure of your home.

Residential Metal Roofing Reviews:

This is our third project with the Lindus team. From start to finish, sales, measuring, color match, the install, to their own inspection - they all nailed it!! The metal roof on our shed is top notch. They made sure we knew how to maintain it, too. They replaced our remaining 4 bedroom windows with Infinity® From Marvin, of course. They glide so easy, our grandkids can open them. The city building inspector commented on their good work. We are grateful, and worry free now. Thank you so much!"

"Hail damage required us to replace the metal roof on our house and detached storage building. Ryan, as foreman, was excellent. There is little doubt in my mind that Lindus' highest priority is to have the job done right and their customer to be fully satisfied, and we are. As a result, I would be happy to recommend to others!"

"My experience with Lindus was a 5 star experience!  Right from the beginning ALL those talked to were knowledgeable, courteous and took the time to answer all questions.  I have recommended your company to several of my neighbors, of which a couple have already had worked performed and others I believe will be contacting you soon.  I thank you for your commitment to quality and customer satisfaction!"

"Eric is great. We used him on my mom’s house for several projects: new doors, windows, re-insulating the inside of the roof in upstairs bedrooms, tearing down & rebuilding the garage. My sister also used Eric to install LeafGuard® on her own house, build her a new deck, and install a metal roof. We recently had a meeting to discuss building a new deck for me, to replace the old one. We will be using no-maintenance materials, so no more sanding, staining, painting."
