Roofing Contractor Maple Grove
Roofing Contractor Maple Grove MN
Here at Affordable Roofing Contractors, we understand that it is difficult to know what to look for in a roofing contractor in Maple Grove MN, so we’ve created a list of things to think through to help you step through the process!
At Affordable, we believe roof inspections and re-roof estimates should be free and no obligation. Don’t pay for something that you can have done for free!
Wondering how to navigate the building permit process? Don’t worry about it! We take care of that and coordinate with the city building inspector. The inspector will come out at the end of the job to inspect our work and place his stamp of approval on the project. Make sure your roofing contractor knows how to step through the necessary building permit requirements.
Winter Shingle Installation
Can shingles be installed in the winter? It depends. Some jurisdictions do not allow shingles to be installed below 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ask your roofing contractor what effort they will make to protect your personal property because all good roofers protect customers’ property. At Affordable, your property is our priority. We cover plants, move lawn furniture, and are especially mindful of nails in your yard and driveway. You won’t even know we were at your house!
Rot and Mildew
Roofers should always address areas of rot or mildew that they may uncover when tearing off your existing roof shingles. Covering up a problem spot with new shingles is basically just “painting over” the problem. We don’t do that. We will be honest with you about what we find on your roof. When we find ventilation issues, we will add additional venting hardware to your roof to fix the problem, not just cover it over. Be sure to ask your roofing contractor in Maple Grove if they uncovered or anticipate any areas of rot or mildew and how they plan to deal with those.
Deck Board Spacing
A typical problem in Minnesota with older homes is the deck board spacing underneath the shingles. Code calls for ¼ inch or less spacing. If we find your roof is not compliant, we will need to re-deck the roof. Although this does increase the initial price of the new roof, having your roof code compliant is important for the soundness of your roof.
Storm Damage Repair
If your roof has storm damage, we will tell you about it. Depending on the severity and when it occurred, your insurance company may pay for your new roof. If we find signs of storm damage, we will notify you. In this case, we advise scheduling an appointment with your insurance company’s adjuster. We can work with your adjuster to make sure the insurance company covers your new roof.
Good roofers are always willing to go the extra mile. Are you a ham radio or short-wave radio hobbyist? No problem! We have helped customers with antennas and we will carefully remove your antenna, re-roof you house, and then re-install the antenna exactly as it was.
