How to Choose a New Roof

One of the most important parts of your home is the roof. It’s what protects you, your loved ones and your belongings from the outdoor elements, and a nice and well-maintained roof can add plenty of curb appeal to your home. We can help with roofing repair in Minneapolis and the surrounding areas, and we can also help with replacements. Here are a few things to consider when deciding on what roofing material to use.

Weather

Here in Minnesota, we are all too familiar with extreme weather. From frigid and snowy winters to hot and humid summers, not to mention all of the storms and blizzards we can get around here, your new roofing material needs to be able to withstand a variety of weather conditions and temperatures. You don’t want to have to call us for roofing repair because you chose a material that will not stand up to the outdoor elements. All of the materials that we install (wood, rubber, hot tar and several others) are good choices for our climate.

Appearance

Go outside and take a long look at your home. Try to notice the colors and some of the smaller details. Your new roof should complement the aesthetics of the rest of your home. For example, you don’t want to have a brown roof installed if your old one was black and the siding matches with black better than brown. And you probably do not want to put a stucco roof on a Victorian-style home either. Make sure your new roof flatters your home’s appearance and enhances it. The roofing repair and replacement experts at Eastern Roofing & Siding can help you figure out what type of roof will look the best and flatter your home the most.

Cost

While we always do our best to make sure you get a fair and reasonable price of any roofing repair or replacement services you get from us, some roofing materials are more budget-friendly than others. Make sure you have a budget in mind when you are deciding what kind of roofing material to buy and have installed.

Of course, if you have any questions about how to choose a new roof, you can always call us for our expert advice.
