PORTLAND, Ore.— A home renovation in Portland, Ore., combines performance and aesthetics, and that’s why it won the Metal Roofing Alliance’s fourth-quarter Best Residential Metal Roofing Project competition for 2021.

Given the home’s location in a region that receives heavy rain and moisture in the winter and spring, but has hot, dry summers that make wildfire danger a serious threat, low-maintenance and protective metal roofing was their top choice.

The dark standing-seam metal roof complements the home’s clean lines with its unique Northwest modern style. It also provides maximum peace of mind, especially since trees surround the home’s site.

“This project demonstrates how choosing a quality metal roof can accentuate great architectural design and offer easy-to-care-for, low-maintenance protection for many years to come,” said Renee Ramey, MRA executive director. “The homeowners are thrilled with their choice. They appreciate their new roof so much. They also decided to use metal for siding on the upper story and chose metal roofing for their second home on the Oregon Coast as well.”


With the final 2021 quarterly winner selected, the 2022 Q-1 competition for MRA’s Best Residential Metal Roofing competition is open and the Alliance has some exciting changes this year.

The quarterly competition is open to all homeowners as well as builders, contractors and roofing installers in the U.S. and Canada (where allowable) who believe their metal roof project is the best based on either performance, style or both.

The MRA is offering a $300 cash prize to each quarter’s winner and will showcase them in the organization’s marketing efforts.
