The roofs on our homes are made to protect our families and our treasured possessions, be a barrier between us and the weather elements and keep the indoor temperatures comfortable. However, the roofing materials may not last as long as we would desire. Heavy storms, ice dams in the winter, falling branches, and leaks can wreak havoc on our roofing systems.
How do you know if it is time to replace your roof? Here are some helpful tips:
- Do you have missing, damaged, bent, broken, or curled shingles?
- Do you have a sagging, warped roofline?
- Do you notice granules in the gutters?
- Are mold, moss, and/or algae evident on the shingle surface?
- Do you have high monthly energy bills?
- Do you have water leaks on your attic walls and ceiling?
These are all indications that it is time to consider a roof replacement project for 2023. It is not advised that the go-getter, DIY-er, or weekend warrior attempt to replace a roof without proper installation procedures.

What are the top 5 reasons to replace your roofing system?
Increased Home Value
According to the national average, a new asphalt roof can increase your home value by up to $12,000. Of course, the size of your personal home does play a factor in this figure. A new roof, regardless of size, can give you a return on investment of about 68%. The curb appeal of a fresh new roof is an added benefit. You will stand out among the neighbors on the block with a crisp new roof! (Roof Replacement Cost for your new roof)
Improved Energy Efficiency
New and updated technology can assist with keeping your monthly energy bills lower. Older roofs do not have the ability to reflect the heat during warm Minnesota summers, and the heat can seep into the home causing the air conditioners to run more. Likewise, the furnace must run more in the cold winter months to keep the indoor temperature comfortable. A new roof can seal up the surface of the home and keep the indoor temperatures more comfortable, in turn, running the heating and cooling system less.
Selling Your Home
Do you intend on selling your home this coming year? A new roof can demand a higher asking price, smoother negotiations with the buyer, offer an appealing first impression, and a shorter time on the market. These are all great advantages when trying to sell your home and move on to bigger and better adventures in life.
Has your home sustained damage from heavy rainstorms, ice dams, the weight of excess snow, or falling branches?
