Winter in Minnesota can be brutal on your residential roof. It can affect many roof components and cause additional wear and tear on the roofing system. Now that winter is over, you need to prepare your roof for the summer. While summertime is not as harsh on homes as the winter, your roof will still have to contend with high temperatures, UV rays, and severe weather.
Is your roof older than 10 years? call a reputable roofing contractor to come out and take a look. The Construction Group can perform a complete residential roofing inspection and make the necessary upgrades to your roof just in time for the hot season.
Below is a summary of how we can strengthen your roof’s surface. Contact us today for an appointment!
What Does a Residential Roofing Inspection Include?
Our roofing inspections are comprehensive. We look for any possible issues across every component and don’t miss anything. A roof inspection should include four facets: the structure, materials, interior, and workmanship.
The items on this checklist all fall under these facets.
General Structural Inspection
Our professionals start with a general once-over. This includes checking for uneven roof panes or signs of sagging.
Don’t neglect your chimney! This includes checking for cracks, crumbling grout, and damage to chimney caps.
If the attic isn’t well-ventilated, all that rain can ruin your roof. That’s because heat and moisture build-up in the attic, leading to potential rot and can also increase the risk for ice dams.
Ensuring your attic and roof are appropriately ventilated keeps humidity or condensation from building up, avoiding a mold problem later.
We look for missing, loose, curling shingles or panels along the surface. Shingle granules in the gutters mean the shingles are wearing down.
Roofs may have stains, moss, rust, and missing flashing – all signs the roof needs repair or replacement.
Warps or separations in the decking can allow water or air leaks, so they must be repaired.
At the same time, any exposed nail heads should be replaced with fresh nails.
Mold or algae buildup might indicate a moisture issue along the roofing system.
Skylights & Antennas
We ensure the area around skylights and antennas should always be sealed.
Your inspector will check the attic, interior ceilings, and walls for water stains, mold, or rot.
The Gutter System
In addition to checking the roofing system, we review the gutters. The first thing we check is the flow of water throughout the channels. If the gutters are clogged with debris, the water will not flow. Therefore, it will spill over the sides. We also check the gutters.
If you have a faulty gutter system, we recommend installing seamless gutters. They are more durable and easier to install.
We can custom-cut your seamless gutters to the exact dimensions!
Professional Roofing Maintenance & Repair
We will let you know by filling out an official report if we find any areas we need to repair. We will then recommend what we need to do to reinforce your roof and prepare it for summer.
