What Types of Roofing Materials Are Best?

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials due to their durability and timeless beauty. Since homes and buildings in Minnesota have to endure harsh and extreme weather conditions, asphalt shingles are an ideal choice as they provide superior protection against the elements.

Perfect Exteriors is proud to only provide the best types of roofing materials to our customers. That’s why we source our shingles from GAF which has proven protection and security for your home. Plus, all GAF products are backed by trustworthy warranties you can count on.

GAF asphalt shingles come with an extra layer of protection that can withstand Minnesota’s heavy rain and snow. When you combine this high-quality material with a professional installation, you get superior protection for your home for years to come.

Cedar Shakes

For homeowners wanting a timeless and peerless elegance to their home, cedar shake is the ideal choice. Due to its timeless style, cedar shake is one of the most popular types of roofing materials. In addition, it is one of the oldest roofing styles, meaning it is well-known for its durability and simple appeal.

Even though cedar shake roofs require more maintenance than other types of roofing materials, the pros outweigh the cons. First and foremost, it is one of the most cost-efficient roofing materials, and with proper maintenance, you can expect a lifespan of 30 years or more.


Metal roofing is a popular roof choice due to its ability to withstand extreme weather conditions, saving you repair and replacement costs in the long run. With proper installation from Perfect Exteriors, metal roofs can last up to 50 years before you need to consider repairs or replacements.

Plus, metal roofs are eco-friendly due to their advanced reflecting capabilities. This means that they will help keep your home cool during the summer months, reducing energy costs and improving your home’s efficiency. At Perfect Exteriors, we offer a wide range of metal roofing colors and designs to fit your needs and budget.
