Metal Roofing System Install 7 Years Later

February 10, 2017

Metro Steel Roofing and Construction has been installing steel and metal roofing for residential houses and commercial buildings for over 15 years and is the leading steel roofing contractor in Minnesota offering metal roofing and wall systems for commercial buildings.

Over this winter, Cliff Vosburg and his team have been working on a special project just outside of Minneapolis. Seven years ago, a roofing ventilation project was done and featured in The Metal Roofing Magazine ( The magazine is now renamed to Construction Magazine Network. The project back in 2010 was on the two-story office park, Offices of Marsh Run, comprised of several buildings, to help with a ventilation problem due to leaks caused by ice dams on the eaves of the roof. Vosburg was called onto the scene after a few years to lend his expertise because the asphalt shingles didn’t solve the problem. The Metro Steel crew covered the new plywood with Feltex synthetic underlay and topped it with Metro’s Shake shingle, which allowed proper ventilation between the two.

Fast forward to December 2016 through January 2017, Metro Steel Construction and their excellence was called back to the same location to do another installation, a vented MetroSHAKE roofing system of a back office building that is sized around 6500 square feet.

Here are some photos of the project:
