Roof Inspection and Repair Bloomington, MN AreaThere is no single part of your home that is more important than the roof.

Exteriors has the experience and expertise to ensure that your roof is in excellent condition so that it can do the job it was designed to do.

Common Causes of Roof Damage in MN

The roof of your home simply has to be solid and durable. If it is not, then virtually nothing about your home can be protected for the long haul. Your roof is under constant stress, and every force that is acting on it can weaken it. In Minnesota, the first of the major forces that come to mind are likely to be snow and ice, which are likely followed closely by rain and wind. These forces can do significant and costly damage to your roof. Snow that remains on your roof for lengths of time is not only an issue because of excess weight, but the warmth inside your house will melt the snow that is in contact with the roof, which can then re-freeze and work its way under the shingles. This is a phenomenon known as an ice dam, and it is very common in snowy climates. An ice dam is never good for your roof.

The combination of strong wind and rain can challenge the integrity of any roof, and when the wind is strong enough, it can lift shingles, causing them to be ripped off your roof and allowing rain to potentially reach the inside of your home. Those are just some of the more obvious forces, but they are far from the only ones. Extreme temperature swings and increasingly intense summer heat can also take a toll on your roof. These forces do their work much more quietly and require more time to do damage, but they can still contribute to roof damage like snow, ice, rain, and wind.
