The Construction Group provides a wide range of roofing materials for homeowners across Minneapolis. We’ve helped owners like you get the type of roof they want to help their home stand out. Which roofing material is the best? Read below to get our take on the features and benefits of the top choices.

1. Asphalt Shingles

Roughly 30% of all homeowners in Minnesota prefer asphalt shingles over other roofing materials. There are good reasons for this. First, it’s affordable. Asphalt shingles cost less than other roof types. Second, it’s install and lasts for at least 25 years. Third, asphalt shingles are stylish and come in an endless array of colors, designs, and textures. We use GAF shingles because we believe that you deserve the very best.

2. Metal Roofs

Although modern metal roofs are still relatively new (about three decades in regular use), they have quickly become one of the most popular roofing materials in the Minneapolis area. Metal roofs can last for more than five decades with little maintenance or repairs. They are by far the most robust roofing material in the industry. But you don’t have to sacrifice style for durability. We can install a metal roof that looks like other material such as wood, shingles, or even tile.

3. Wood Shakes and Cedar Shingles

If you want a roofing material that is 100% authentic, then we recommend installing wood roofs. Wood is for the distinguishing homeowner that wants high-end construction with an elegant appeal. While wood does require more maintenance than other roofing materials, the tradeoff is that it can significantly raise your home’s market value. We love to install wood roofs because they are gorgeous and natural looking.

4. Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are popular with homeowners in the southern coastal regions of the U.S. Therefore, we do not get as many orders for tile roofs as we do the other materials. Like metal, however, tile seems to last forever. In many cases, it will outlast the home upon which it's built. If you’re looking for something different in this area, then we recommend considering tile as an option for your roof. Tile roofing comes in neutral shades and is a pleasure to look at it. It immediately catches the eye.

5. Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are the least expensive material on the list. Flat roofs require less time and effort to install, so you’ll save on labor costs. Flat roofs are safer than sloped roofs because you can walk on them without slide off. These types of roofs work better for commercial buildings rather than residential homes.
