A beautiful new copper metal roof installed by Istueta Roofing and manufactured by Metal Master Shop is the winner of MRA’s Best Residential Metal Roofing competition for Q1 of 2023.

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.

Located in Coral Gables, Florida where the oceanfront home is exposed to a variety of harsh conditions including wind, saltwater and intense sun exposure, the homeowner wanted to invest in the strongest roofing system possible. The new copper roof is a stunning addition that not only provides maximum durability and protection for this nearly 20 year-old home, it also elevates its elegance and curb appeal.

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.

“We pride ourselves in providing quality work,” said Laura Coronel of Istueta Roofing. “We are grateful for this opportunity and the level of trust the client gave us. This home now has one of the strongest roofing systems available, designed last for many years to come.”

With the first quarter’s winner selected, the search is now on for MRA’s final 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 online. Only residential metal roofing projects in the U.S. and Canada will be considered.
