A new roof for your home is one of the most important investments you can make when renovating your house. A new roof can improve your home’s curb appeal while increasing its value, providing a positive return on investment. When you choose to have a new roof installed on your home, you face several important decisions as you go through the roof replacement process.


At The Window Store, we offer customer service-focused roof replacement services throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin. We’ve put together this helpful post to walk you through some of the most important decisions to make when choosing your replacement roof. Give us a call to learn more about roof replacement options for your home and get a free quote today.

Deciding to Replace Your Roof

The first decision you’ll need to make is whether you actually need or want to replace your roof or whether you can simply have it repaired. When budget is a concern, it may be possible to repair your roof, but replacing it entirely can add value to your home while helping to reduce monthly energy costs.


Here are a few signs your roof should be replaced rather than simply repaired:


●        Extensive shingle damage

●        Your roof is very old

●        Preparing to sell home

●        Structural roof damage

Choosing a Roofing Material

Once you’ve decided to replace your roof, it’s time to choose a new roofing material for your home. At The Window Store, we are GAF Master Elite Certified to offer GAF roofing materials. Depending on your budget and aesthetic goals, you may prefer to go with a traditional three-tab shingle or an architectural shingle look. Architectural shingles offer dimensionality and a high level of curb appeal. We can help you choose the right shingles for your home and budget.

Selecting a Roof Color and Style

Once you’ve decided on a roofing material, you’ll need to select a style. Your home’s architectural style and the other homes in your neighborhood may influence your decision. Cedar shake, cottage-style shingles, and a wide range of options are available when you choose architectural shingles. You should also consider the color of your siding or any future plans to alter your siding when installing a new roof. Check with your HOA to make sure your new roof is compliant with neighborhood regulations.
