Eden Prairie, MN Roof Repair
Many roofing issues, such as missing or damaged shingles, can often be repaired successfully. If your roof lost some shingles in a storm but looks otherwise in good condition, you can expect our contractors to be honest about that. We’ll never pressure you to replace a perfectly good roof!
Eden Prairie, MN Roof Replacement
If your roof is more than 25 years old or significantly damaged by a storm, replacement is typically the more cost-effective option in the long term. A careful inspection will help us decide, and we’ll document our findings with photos so we can show you what’s going on up there too.
What Does a Roof Replacement Involve?
A Roof Replacement involves stripping the old shingles from the roof, exposing the roof deck. An underlayment is then applied to the roof deck to help protect it from water intrusion. The new shingles are then installed on top of the underlayment for a new roof that can last for 20 years or more.
Can You Put A New Roof Over An Old One?
You can. This is called Re-Roofing. ReRoofing skips the step of stripping the old shingles from the roof and instead installing new shingles over the worn shingles. As long as you only have one layer of shingles on your roof, re-roofing can be beneficial and cheaper. Minnesota building codes prohibits the installation of a third layer of shingles on a home that already has two layers of shingles. In this case, a full roof replacement will be needed.
