Seasons in Owatonna carry with them an above average snowfall in the winter with warm and humid summers. Thunderstorms are also a common occurrence in this part of Minnesota.
When snow and storms that carry heavy rains and winds blow through your area there is a potential to cause damage to your roofing system. While the obvious signs of seeing missing shingles on your roof, shingles on the ground or worst case scenario seeing water stains on your ceilings or walls can indicate a problem with your roofing system, the only way to know the extent of the damage is to have an experienced roofing contractor make an inspection. Missing tiles, cracked or rusted flashings or gutters can cause problems down the road that you may not even be able to see signs of right now. Over time small problems can become major money issues if left alone.

When you think of Austin you think of historic theaters, beautiful parks and nature centers, country clubs with all the amenities that even feature the finest golfing courses in southern Minnesota, along with baseball and hockey teams, and the famous SPAM Museum. One other thing Austin is known for is their unusually high rate of precipitation. While this is a wonderful thing for the farmers, it can create a problem for your roofing system.
Water can cause problems for your roof regardless of the season. While out doing yard work you may have noticed missing shingles or granules filling your downspouts or gutters. In your home you may be seeing water stains on your ceilings, walls or near your fireplace or chimney. These may be signs of your roofing system needing a little TLC. It is important to pay attention to what your roof is telling you so that you can fix any problems or potential problems as it may save you money in the future as minor problems now, can cause major damage down the road.
