If you’re considering a brand-new asphalt roof for your property, it's important to understand a few key details. The price is one of the biggest factors for homeowners when choosing a roof. Asphalt roof replacements are known for being relatively cheap and durable in comparison to other materials like metal, cedar, and tile. A new asphalt roof in Minnesota can last around 30-35 years with proper maintenance. Furthermore, asphalt roofs have reflective properties to increase energy savings for your HVAC system.

Environment: Factors like sun exposure, weather patterns, homeowners insurance, and city code can all have an impact on what material you should choose. If your home received heavy winds and hail damage yearly, it could be a good idea to opt for a metal roof even though it will cost more than a traditional architectural roof. If you have good homeowners insurance this option could be outweighed by an architectural roof.
Asphalt Roofs: Cheap reliable option with a medium lifespan and moderate energy savings.
Metal Roofs: Pricey option but can be worth it due to high energy savings, damage resistance, and a 40-70 year lifespan.
Cedar Roofs: Cedar Roofs are in between metal & asphalt in terms of lifespan, price, and maintenance.
