There comes the point when having your roof repaired by roofing contractors can be a waste of time and money. This is especially true if repairing your roof doesn’t really solve the big problems and payoff in the end. The question for most homeowners, however, is knowing when to repair a roof and when to replace it.


The Question is Cost vs. Payoff

The average homeowner in Minneapolis pays around $700 annually for roof maintenance and repairs. We perform dozens of these repairs throughout the area every year in order to restore a house roof. Although $700 sounds like a lot for some homeowners, we have discovered that this is a good investment for our clients who plan to keep their home for a long time.


If you find, however, that you are paying over $1200 a year on repairs, then it’s clear that you are not only paying too much for repairs, but that they’re not doing any good. At this point you should contact a The Construction Group contractor to come out and inspect every component of the roof frame and roofing materials.


What Do You Replace?

There are various levels of roof replacement. On the surface end, our roofing contractors can replace material such as asphalt shingles, tile, or metal roofing. If you go a little deeper, we may find that we have to replace chimneys and masonry. On the deep end, however, you may be looking at replacing the entire roof including the framework.


Regardless of how daunting a task this may be, we recommend taking the leap. Here’s why: If you plan to keep your for a long-time, then a remodeled roof will provide greater protection in severe weather. This type of protection could save you thousands of dollars in full house repair if the structure was ever damaged by a hail storm, tornado or high winds. If, on the other hand, you plan to sell your house, you may find that a mandatory inspection will require you to repair the roof anyway.
