The Metal Roofing Alliance and Metal Coffee Shop have selected a massive metal roofing project that provides “…the perfect crowning touch for a stunning custom home” as the winner of its Best Residential Metal Roofing Project competition for the third quarter of 2023. 

Bliss Roofing, based in Clackamas, Ore., installed the award-winning roof on an 8,700-square-foot modern lodge-style home last April, and Taylor Metal provided the materials, according to an Oct. 26 MRA news release. The project architects suggested a metal roof, and the homeowners agreed, noting its fire resistance as one of several reasons. 

The massive ranch on a 72-acre estate just outside Portland includes a wine cellar, casita, pool room, study, gym and an outdoor living area.

Bliss Roofing, which has been installing metal roofing systems for more than 50 years, said that this project had been its largest residential install since the company incorporated metal in its offerings. The MRA said the house used an incredible 275 squares — 26,000 square feet — of Cool Kynar 500 Dark Bronze Easy Lock Standing Seam Steel Metal panels, manufactured by Taylor Metals, for the roof.

 “This winning project really demonstrates how architects, builders, installers and manufacturers can successfully work together to ensure quality, not only when it comes to long-term performance and reliability, but also incredible style,” said Renee Ramey, MRA executive director. “With its stunning metal roof, this home is the very definition of beautiful design, both inside and out. "

The search is on for MRA’s ‘Best Residential Metal Roofing’ for the final quarter 2023. Open to U.S. and Canadian 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 and a 200-word or less description of why their metal roofing project is worthy of top honors online at Next quarter’s winner will be announced in January 2024; only residential metal roofing projects in the U.S. and Canada will be considered.
