Replace Your Roof?

Minnesota Roof Replacement

Replace Your Roof?

Rain, wind, sun, hail, snow and any other harsh weather conditions can destroy a roof that isn’t taken care of correctly. The roof is your home’s main line of defense against water damage or other damage due to the elements. So what are some of the signs you should look for as you begin to call your selection of roofing contractors in MN?

Over time, sun and extreme weather can cause your shingles to start curling. When shingles begin curling up they are no longer doing their job and your roof can be exposed, allowing water and snow to get under the curling shingles and cause damage to the interior wood. Raised nail heads can cause shingles to crack and this will allow moisture to get inside the roof and cause damage as well. Broken or missing shingles are more obvious signs of the immediate need for repair.

The granules on the shingles protect the asphalt from UV rays and water. Over time and through harsh weather conditions these granules can wear off and this means your shingles will not protect your roof for much longer. One sign is a buildup of granules around your gutter downspouts.

One fairly obvious reason that there is a problem with your roof is the sight of water spots or leakage inside your home. This means you already have a problem somewhere on the roof and water is now working on destroying the interior of your home. You should contact a Minneapolis roofing contractor soon as this can lead to dangerous mold and structure damage.

If your roof is getting old and you are starting to pour more and more money into repairs, you may want to think about a complete roofing job by a Minneapolis roofing contractor. It may mean more money now but in the long run it will save you a lot of money, headache and possibly structure damage.

Some other signs to look for are water spots or peeling paint on your walls or doors. Large changes in your heating and cooling bills can be a sign of a damaged roof. At the first signs of damage you need to contact a Minneapolis roofing contractor who has been repairing roofs and replacing roofs in the Minneapolis area for life.
