4 Reasons Local Contractors Are Better For Your Roof

Coil33Springtime in Minnesota means severe weather for our entire state. It also seems that we have our own “Tornado Alley” along the northern Minneapolis metro area. This is a hot area for storm chasing contractors to target homeowners who are inundated with storm after storm all summer long. However, it’s important to use a locally owned, reputable contractor like The Chuba Company.

The Chuba Company has been a contractor serving the northwest Minneapolis suburbs since 1972. We’ve had the same experienced roofing crews that have been helping our customers for several years. Because of our crew’s extensive professionalism and experience, we feel comfortable in guaranteeing our quality craftsmanship with a lifetime workmanship warranty. Here are a few other things that set us apart:

  • We have extensive experience with helping homeowners through the insurance claim process.
  • The Chuba Company has been a GAF Master Elite Contractor since 2006.
  • We use a magnet to clean up stray nails and metal debris and protect the landscaping around the house.
  • If you have questions or concerns about your roof after your project is done, someone is always here to help you!

The Minnesota, North Dakota BBB states that roofing contractors are among the top inquiries by consumers, so it’s also important to note that The Chuba Company carries an A+ rating.

Unlike storm chasers who are out to make a quick buck, our objective is to help our customers. We consider every job a unique opportunity to help a homeowner choose the materials that will fit their style and budget. Here are a few roofing products we recommend for different reasons:

Vinyl TPO – We use this product on small, flat roofs. It’s ideal for garages, sheds, and other buildings that have a flat roof.

Asphalt shingles – As the most traditional shingle material, they are affordable, offer many colors, and are available in either the 3-tab, architectural, or designer shingle. The lifespan of asphalt shingles is typically 30-40 years.

Steel shingles – This material comes in a variety of profiles; from wood shakes or clay tiles. They can even mimic asphalt shingles. Steel shingles have a longer lifespan of 50 years or more.

Standing seam roofing – This roofing material is sometimes used to create specialty looks, such as copper accents for bay windows or porches. More recently, however, standing seam has been used for entire roofs, coming in a variety of colors. This product often comes with a lifetime warranty.

When Minnesota storms turn into something so severe that they damage your property, it can be easy to panic and go with the contractors that show up at your door. But remember, you’re in control of your own property and it’s important to use a contractor that will walk you through the process every step of the way.
