Over time, we’ve began to notice that our clients are all asking similar questions regarding their roofs. To help share our answers, we’ve created a list of three of our most frequently asked questions. 

Q: How do I know I need a new roof?

A: There a few major ways homeowners can identify the need for a roof replacement. On average, Minnesota roofs will last around 25 years. Once your roof has hit its age limit, you’ll begin to notice signs like sagging structure or curled and missing shingles. Often times, roofs will also begin to weaken, becoming more susceptible to costly damages, like ice dams.  

Q: Does Roof Type Matter?

A: Five of the most common roofing types we see in Minnesota are asphalt, slate, wood, clay, and metal. Each of these materials come with a unique set of benefits. For example, asphalt is many homeowners default for its strength and dependability, while metal is becoming increasingly popular for its longevity and energy efficiency. Before deciding on your roof’s material, it’s best to look into the pros and cons that each material includes.

Q: How do I know which roofing company to choose?

A: Research is essential when deciding on who to trust with your roofing needs. We suggest relying on a company that holds proper training and licensing, a well-respected reputation, and abides by your same core values. If you think about it, your roof is what primarily protects you and your home or business from things like harsh weather and potential intruders. A trustworthy professional is necessary to ensure your roofing needs are fully met and exceeded.
