1) Does my roof need replacing?

There are common signs that your roof may need repairing or replacing including the presence of leaks. However, in most instances, home owners want to know if their roof needs repair before the leak occurs. Twice a year inspections can provide you with the assurance that your roof is still okay and uncover any cracks, warped shingles or problem areas before the leaking begins. A typical roof will last about 20 years. If your roof is looking worse for wear, then there is a good chance that you should consider repairing or replacing it.

2) What are the common roofing problems to look for?

When doing an inspection, be on the lookout for

  • Loose seams
  • Deteriorated flashing
  • Missing or warped shingles
  • Cracked shingles
  • Loose shingles
  • Excessive surface granules in the gutters or downspouts
  • Mould and mildew
  • Discolored shingles

You can also be on the lookout for signs inside your home including cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wall paper. This could suggest there is a problem with your roof.

3) Do I need to replace my entire roof?

Not necessarily. In some instances it is best to replace your entire roof, especially if there are a number of damaged areas. However, you could get away with only replacing a few shingles or repairing a certain spot. At Brigley Roofing, we can inspect your roof to determine what the best option is for you and your budget.

4) I am looking for a commercial property roofing contractor – am I in the right place?

Most certainly. Brigley Roofing provides residential, commercial and multi unit roofing, windows, gutters and siding services in the St. Paul – Minneapolis area. No roofing job is too big or too small for the team at Brigley Roofing.

5) My roof was damaged by hail – will you work with my insurance company?

Yes we will. In fact, we will work directly with your insurance company to sort through the compensation so you don’t have to.

6) How Long will the Job Take?

This depends on the job, the property, the location and the weather. Allowing for perfect weather, a one-story home of 1200 square feet (a typical 2-bedroom, 1-bath rambler) is often re-roofed with one layer of asphalt shingles in one day, providing no complications arise.

7) What can I expect cost wise when it comes to Minnesota roofing services?

Roofing costs will vary depending on material, labor and roofing needs. You can expect to spend $25.00 to $45.00 per shingle 10’ by 10’ square. A good formula to consider when it comes to your roofing costs is this:

Total Cost (Materials and Labor) ÷ Life Expectancy of Roof System (in years) = Annual Roofing Cost

This will give you a better yearly indication on how much you are spending on your roofing system and will also help you determine if the cost is in your annual budget.
