Roofing is an integral part of every home, as it provides shelter and protects your household from outdoor elements, especially harsh weather conditions. Because of this, installing a high-quality roofing system is crucial. Together with durable siding, you can enhance your home’s security and improve its curb appeal.

Certainteed landmark Weathered Wood Asphalt Shingle

Asphalt Shingles

When selecting a residential roofing system, asphalt shingles continue to raise the B.A.R., providing a Beautiful, Affordable, and Reliable roofing solution for any home. In addition to having a variety of styles, textures, and colors to choose from, these roofing shingles are cost-effective, durable, and easy to maintain.

Some varieties of asphalt shingles are manufactured to resemble tile, wood, cedar shakes, or slate while providing more benefits than other roofing materials. Neither metal nor concrete tiles match asphalt roofing for its overall combination of beauty, durability, and longevity. They also possess a greater ease of installation and require less maintenance than metal and concrete.

At Lloyd Lumber, we stock a large selection of Landmark shingles from Certainteed. We can also place special orders for GAF, Malarkey, and Owens Corning.

Metal Roof | Roofing in North Mankato

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is an alternative to traditional asphalt, though there are varieties that mimic the look of standard asphalt shingles. Materials used for metal roofing may include zinc, tin, steel, copper, aluminum, and hybrid metal mixtures. These are finished with special coatings to reflect heat, prevent rust, and seal the material against moisture damage.

While it’s true that metal roofing costs more than asphalt shingles up front, it has a significantly longer life expectancy that helps offset the initial spending. A metal roof will last about 40 to 70 years, while traditional asphalt roofs last about 15 to 25. So, you might end up replacing an asphalt roof anywhere from two to five times in the length of time metal roofing would remain in good condition. Metal roofs are 100% recyclable, and many manufacturers use anywhere from 25% to 95% recycled materials in the production of their product.

You may get a discount on your homeowners insurance when you install a metal roof on your home. Because they’re more durable and less prone to damage from the weather, some insurance companies offer policy discounts of up to 35%. Lloyd Lumber has a wide variety of metal roofing products available for special order.
