Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and it won’t be long before winter weather is in full swing. Is your roof up to the challenge of whatever Minnesota has in store this season?
One of the best ways to protect your home is by investing in roof repair services before winter weather hits. But if your roof is in need of significant repairs, it may be time to consider roof replacement services.
In this post from The Construction Group in Minnesota, we’ll discuss some things to consider when looking at roof repair or replacement for your Twin Cities area home. To schedule your residential roof inspection services, give our roof repair services a call today.
Begin With a Roof Inspection
To keep your residential roof in the best possible shape for longer, it’s important to schedule regular roof inspections. An experienced roofing contractor will be able to identify signs of early damage before they lead to more serious issues that could end up costing you thousands or more. They’ll also be able to help you determine whether roof repair or replacement is a better long-term investment based on their assessment of your roof’s condition.
These are some of the things your contractor will be looking out for:
● Cracked or Missing Shingles
You may be able to identify missing or cracked shingles without the help of a contractor. However, an experienced roofer can evaluate the extent of the damage and let you know whether these damaged shingles have affected the roof underlayment. When left unrepaired, missing and damaged shingles can allow water to seep inside your home where it may cause significant damage and even mold growth.
● Missing Shingle Granules
The granules on your shingles are more than just ornamental. They also help to protect your roof from the sun’s harsh rays. Over time, missing granules can seriously compromise the integrity of your roof.
● Hail Damage
Large hail damage can chip away at your shingle granules or even crack your shingles. If you’ve experienced a recent hailstorm, be sure to let your contractor know.
● Damaged Flashing
Damaged flashing is one of those issues that won’t be evident without taking a closer look. But flashing issues can cause your roof to leak if they aren’t addressed right away.
