Minnesota has a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, and can thus experience different humidity levels. For many areas, humidity is not just a seasonal problem. It is actually a year-round issue, especially for architectural structures. This problem also affects roofs; too much humidity can make roofing systems get ugly black streaks.
As you pore over all available options for replacing your roof and all its components, consider the approaching months of warm weather when making your selections. The right roof can reduce heat transfer and improve indoor comfort.
Winter can be grueling even for newly installed roofs. Spring, then, is a great opportunity to check on how your roof has fared after exposure to extreme cold and heavy snowfall. A good spring cleaning can spell the difference between keeping your roof in good condition or allowing hidden signs of water damage to further manifest.
Due to their excellent weather resistance, relatively long lifespan and budget-friendly price tag, asphalt shingles are the standard roofing material for residential properties. They also are considered one of the most versatile materials since they can match both traditional and modern homes.
