I run into a lot of contractors as part of my job.  Many are good, some are very good, and some others - not so much.  I have worked with Select Exteriors a number of times and they are definitely in the 'very good' category.  The owner, Chad Sigafoos, has tons of experience, lots of integrity, and is very personable and easy to get ahold of.  He makes sure that jobs are done in a timely fashion and that they are done right the first time. If you or your customers need a referral, I would definitely check out Select Exteriors!

The Pros of Asphalt Roofs over other materials

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.

Cost & other factors of an asphalt roof

To give you a general rule for picking the right material for your next roof installation in MN, I am going to provide a list of circumstances, conditions, & material properties to help you make an informed decision.
(Note: Your case could be different than what is described ahead). If you’re located in or around the twin cities and want an expert opinion, don't hesitate to call us at

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 receives 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.
