When Do You Need To Call In A Roofing Contractor Pro?

Posted on

Is your roof beginning to show its age? Are you starting to see signs of weather damage and wondering whether it might be time to hire a roofing contractor? Before you start to panic and worry over the thousands of dollars a new roof might cost, it is imperative you understand whether your roof truly does need replacing or not.

 

If the following warning signs are present, it might indeed be time to replace your roof:

 

Shoddy Shingles

residential-damaged-shingles-peeling-2[1]

If the shingles on your roof are beginning to look cracked and dry, it is time to consider a new roof. There are a host of new shingle options available to today’s homeowner; a contractor like Sela Roofing can advise you as to which roofs are best for your house type and the Minnesota weather.

 

 

Light in Attic Crawl Space

 

If you peek your head into your attic crawl space and notice light coming through from your roof, it is time for a roof upgrade. Heat loss through a worn out roof can have a huge impact on your yearly utility costs. Make sure your roof is completely impervious to sunlight and moisture to ensure you are not providing a perfect breeding ground for mold, insects, and small rodents.

 

 

 

Moss Garden

 

 

 

If your roof is starting to look like you have a rooftop garden instead of a standard shingle roof, it is time to call in the pros. Too much moss growth on your roof can lead to rot issues and interior water damage. Keep the moss in your garden and not on your home’s roof.

 

 

 

If any of these roof problems are present, please give us a call us for a free estimate to help you better access the state of your home’s most important feature. Without a properly maintained roof, everything from your walls to your electrical wiring can be at risk. Postponing roofing repairs can end up being a costly mistake in the long-run.

 

Take a chance to assess where your roof stands this fall so you can go into winter without worries!

Do I Need A New Roof?

Posted on

As important as the roof is to our house, we need to pay special attention to it as it starts to age. But, how do we tell when it is maybe time to have a professional inspect it for replacement. Below are some tips to help you decide.

roof-wind-damage[1]

1. Have you now, or in the past found shingles or pieces of shingle in your yard. A good strong wind can pull whole shingles, or parts of the shingle, loose from the roof. If in the past after any wind storms, you found these in your yard, it is a sign that your roof needs to be inspected.

2. Water spots on the ceiling in your house. This is a tell tale sign that your roof is leaking and needs repair or replacing.

3. Discoloration on the roof. From the ground can you see spots on your roof that seem to be discolored or look different than the rest of the roof.

4. Buckling shingles

5. Rotting shingles.

6. Consider the age of your roof. The average life of a roof is 20 years. If you area at 20 or more years, have your roof inspected by a professional.

7. What are your plans for the future? Are you going to be selling in the near future? Having a new roof on the house will be a big plus for a potential buyer.

With these simple inspections, you will have  a good idea if it is time to be considering a new roof. If you are suspicious at all that your roof may be going bad, call us and we will be happy to come inspect your roof.


Make Smart Choices to Keep Your Firework Fun Safe

Posted on

Fireworks are a fantastic way to add some real sparkle to your Fourth of July celebration, but these vibrant blasts of explosive color definitely require proper handling. According to the American Pyrotechnics Association, there were more than 10,000 fireworks-related injuries in 2014. Fortunately, you can take steps to prevent injuries from ruining your Independence Day fun. To keep your firework display safe and enjoyable, make these smart choices.

Series with a Caucasian family outdoors, on a summer day - mother, father, son, daughter. Overall a July 4th holiday theme. Playing with sparklers, dinner on the porch and American flags.
Choose the Right Fireworks
With stands that sell them popping up on every corner, fireworks of all kinds are readily available. Make sure that you purchase your fireworks from an authorized dealer. While any firework has the potential to be dangerous, illegal and homemade fireworks pose a real threat to life and property. Roughly 40 percent of firework injuries are due to illegal fireworks.

Choose the Right Person
Watching fireworks is fun, but handling them is serious business. Make sure the person in charge of your firework display is up to the responsibility. Select an adult who will take their job seriously. Do not allow kids to play with any fireworks or firework debris.

Choose the Right Location
Fireworks need plenty of room. Read the directions on your fireworks so that you’ll know what to expect, and then plan accordingly. Choose an outdoor area that’s free of debris and objects that would be likely to catch fire, including homes, vehicles, children’s play structures and vegetation. Designate separate spaces for your fireworks and your audience. Make sure both groups have plenty of elbow room and that there is a sufficient distance between them.

Choose the Right Technique
When handling fireworks, pay attention to your technique. Always treat fireworks with respect and remember that they can ignite unexpectedly if exposed to friction or a spark. Light one at a time and don’t attempt to relight a firework that fails to go off. Stay alert whenever fireworks are present and maintain a safe distance from any lit fireworks. Never carry fireworks in your pocket or aim them at another person. Never place your hand or any other body part over the firework.

Choose the Right Precautions
Accidents can happen to even the most cautious of people. When handling fireworks, it pays to be ready before things go wrong. Keep a working garden hose and buckets of water nearby whenever you are lighting fireworks. Always have a phone ready to call for professional help if you need it.

Choose the Right Cleanup Method
Fireworks have the potential to go off when you least expect it, so any duds or debris must be handled with care. Never allow children or animals to explore anything left behind by your firework display. Wait at least 20 minutes to limit the possibility of additional detonations. Then soak any debris thoroughly before gathering it up and disposing of it in a covered trashcan that is placed outdoors and away from anything flammable.

Celebrating July Fourth with fireworks is a longstanding tradition that dates back to 1777. If you elect to continue this thrilling custom with your own personal fireworks show, make the right choices so that you can stay safe, avoid injury and enjoy the fun.

Sela Roofing & Remodeling Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2015 President’s Club Award

Posted on

We are proud of our long partnership with GAF and that we have been awarded their most prestigious honor – The Presidents Club Award – for the past 15 years!

Our team has been proud to be a part of this for so long.

Press Release:

Sela Roofing & Remodeling Receives GAF’s Prestigious 2015 President’s Club Award

St. Louis Park, MN – June 20, 2016

Sela Roofing & Remodeling, Inc., of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, has received the most prestigious contractor award GAF has to offer: The GAF President’s Club Award. This highly coveted award recognizes Sela Roofing & Remodeling as one of the “elite of the elite” residential roofing contractors in the United States.

GAF is North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, and only GAF Master Elite® Contractors can compete for its residential President’s Club Award. To qualify for this award, a residential roofing contractor must demonstrate an exceptional level of excellence in their business, especially in the areas of Installation Excellence, Consumer Protection, and Installer Training.

Sela Roofing & Remodeling has been a GAF Master Elite® Contractor since 2000. To become a Master Elite® Contractor—a status that less than 2% of roofing contractors nationwide have achieved—a candidate must demonstrate proper licensing and adequate insurance, have a proven reputation and show commitment to ongoing professional training.

“Most people can say it, but they can’t back it up.” That’s how Patrick Hall, operations manager at Sela Roofing & Remodeling, responds when asked what separates Sela from contractors who claim quality, service, value, and craftsmanship as their selling points. “Our craftsmanship and our installers achieve higher standards in the finished product. We have a history of 135,000 satisfied customers and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Our reputation is driven by reviews on the Internet, referrals, as well as the fact that we’re a member of organizations that carry very high credentials.”

The company’s size contributes to its success. “We’re the biggest exterior contractor in the Twin Cities in Minnesota,” states Hall. “Because we’re the biggest, we are very competitive in the market, offering high-quality products at a very competitive price.”

Sela Roofing & Remodeling carries some impressive credentials. “We’re super excited about receiving the President’s Club Award again from GAF,” says Hall. The company is also a preferred installer for James Hardie Fiber Cement Board, a preferred partner with Pella Windows, and certified by Velux and the Vinyl Siding Institute.

Even a company as large and successful as Sela Roofing & Remodeling still finds time to give back to the community. “We work with Habitat for Humanity, we participate in GAF’s Roofs for Troops program, and we contribute to many different types of charities and community activities,” adds Hall. The company has installed roofs for orphanages and shelters for abused women, works with Little League and softball organizations, and has been recognized as the Recycle Contractor of the Year for the last several years.

Going forward, the record of success will continue, concludes Hall. “We’re installing more and more metal roofing systems, as well as putting more additions on houses. Let the building keep going! We strive for 100% customer satisfaction. That’s always our goal.”
