As announced by DesignandBuildwithMetal, the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) has named a beautiful copper metal re-roofing project, installed by Istueta Roofing and manufactured by Metal Master Shop, as the winner of its Best Metal Roofing Project competition for the first quarter of 2023.

As the Florida weather season begins to shift into hurricane season, durability is on the minds of homeowners. Located in Coral Gables on the east coast of Florida, this homeowner wanted to invest in the strongest roofing system possible and Istueta Roofing and Metal Master Shop delivered. This project showcases how a metal roof not only elevates a home’s elegance and “curb appeal,” but also provides maximum durability and protection against wind, saltwater and intense sun exposure. Check out this “before” and “after” photos of the home and click HERE for a full photo timeline of the project which began in September 2020.

According to DesignandBuildwithMetal, “Quality installation by Istueta is on display in every detail of this complex project. The roof has circular and two semicircular radius elevations, while the standing seam style accentuates the architectural design of the home. The copper metal will develop a beautiful patina that changes over time, making it a truly one-of-a-kind roof. And when it comes to functionality, the new roof offers the homeowner additional advantages, such as easy maintenance, lower utility bills and insurance savings.”

Metal Roofing Alliance

Representing metal roofing manufacturers in the United States and Canada, the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA) was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit organization to help educate consumers about the many benefits of metal roofs. The main objective of MRA is to increase awareness of the beauty, durability and money-saving advantages of quality metal roofs among homeowners, as well as to provide support for metal roofing businesses and contractors.

With the first quarter’s winner selected, the search is now on for MRA’s Best Residential Metal Roofing project for the second quarter of 2023. Open to U.S. and Canada homeowners, contractors, installers and manufacturers, MRA officials will select one outstanding metal roofing project based on project appearance, performance and originality/use of materials. Interested participants may upload their project photo along with a 200-word or less description for why their metal roofing project is worthy of top honors. Only residential metal roofing projects in the U.S. and Canada will be considered. Contest entry form link:
