Victoria, Minnesota homes are no stranger to extreme weather. That is why it is so important for homeowners to stay on top of home maintenance and home improvements like residential roof replacements. Keeping your roof in tip-top shape may be the difference between April showers and May flowers.
When is it Time to Get Your Residential Roof Replaced in Minnesota?
With asphalt shingle roofs lasting for an average of 20 years, houses built in the early 2000s may be ready for a new roof! If you aren’t sure how old your roof is, think back to how old your kids were when you built your house or had the roof replaced. If they are now graduating high school, it may also be time to consider a new roof.
While the age of the roof is a great indicator, there are other signs as well. One of the most common signs is significant granule loss. Check your gutters after a good storm. If there is significant build-up this could be an indicator you need work done.
Keep in mind that April showers may bring unexpected wind or hail! Storm damage is always something to look out for! Any time there are significant storms, it is a good idea to complete a visual inspection of your roof.
Look for broken, missing, or damaged shingles, holes from debris, or signs of significant impact. Don’t forget to check inside your home, too! Use a flashlight to visually inspect your attic for signs of moisture.
