Here’s a list of common questions we receive from homeowners about roof replacement.

When Do You Need Residential Roof Replacement?

Excessive cracking, exposed lifting, curling, and exposed nails. These are just a few things that could indicate a major repair or that a roof replacement is needed.

Another one of the most reliable indicators that a professional roofer needs to replace your roof is the amount of money and time you are spending on maintenance and repairs. If you’re spending money just on maintenance way too often, then it’s time.

In addition, if your roof – asphalt shingles in particular – is approaching 20-25 years old, that’s a pretty good indicator it’s going to need replacing sooner rather than later. You might be calling a professional roofing company more frequently than you should, and it is a sure signal it’s time to replace.

What Is the Best Roofing Material for Your Home?

In Minnesota, the best type of roofing material is asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and tile.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt is the most affordable and offers an endless array of styles. It has a life expectancy of up to 30 years.

It’s also easy to install. Shingles come in a vast selection of colors, styles and even durability factors, which would categorize some as luxurious high end–and of course might cost more.

Metal Roofing

If you want ultimate protection and insulation from the outside elements, metal roofing is your best bet. Metal roofing can last for more than 50 years.

Due to technological advances, metal roofing also provides a broader range of styles. It comes in steel, aluminum, zinc, and copper, with the latter material lasting more than 100 years.


Tile roofing can be among the most expensive types of roofing. The payoff, however, is that you can expect it to last 70-100 years, It may even outlast the rest of your house.

Tile is aesthetically beautiful and a great choice if your residence experiences hot weather, flash flood rain, or direct exposure to salt air.

Tile roofing is also very heavy and requires a professional roofing company to ensure the roof framing is done properly.

What Should You Look for in a Roofing Contractor?

A roofing contractor should first and foremost be licensed in the state of Minnesota and certified in residential or commercial roofing.

A contractor should be able to provide a portfolio of past work including references.

 A roofing contractor should carry the minimum amount of insurance legally required to cover employees and property.

Last, a contractor that has direct industry experience working on your type of roof. We only employ the most experienced, meticulous craftsmen in the industry producing expert-level quality.

How Long Does a Roof Replacement Last?

It depends on the following:

●        The condition of your roof

●        The size of the roof

●        The weather conditions

●        The size and scope of work to be performed

●        The professional workmanship of the roof installer

With that in mind, we can complete most roof replacement jobs within a reasonable time frame – even as little as two to three business days – to accommodate your calendar and schedule.

Why Should You Hire a Professional Roofing Company?

Two main reasons: First, you want the work to be covered under your warranty. Second, you want the work covered under your insurance policy.

A DIY job may not be covered by either if anything goes wrong. Only a professional roofing company can ensure that your roof is replaced according to industry standards and residential building codes. That way it’s covered under your warranty and insurance.

We at The Construction Group stand behind our roof replacement work. In addition to manufacturers' warranties, we also offer a limited 10-year warranty on work we perform which will alleviate any apprehension. We also have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
