Asphalt shingles are the most commonly-used shingle because they come in many styles and price points.  They are appropriate for all climates and are easy to maintain.  They come in architectural styles that mimic stone and wood.  They generally have a life span from 25 to 50 years depending on the quality of the product chosen.

Wood Shingles provide a natural rustic appearance to homes adding distinction to any neighborhood. The most commonly- used wood is western red cedar. Treated yellow pine taper sawn shingles are also available. Using preservative treated or naturally durable wood for shingles should result in a roof lasting for 25 to 30 years.

Tips for Roofing Maintenance

  • Have your roof inspected by a professional every two years. Let them know of any problems you are having with your roof, including ice dams, ceiling damage, water coming in through windows, peeling under the over-hang, damp places on your fireplace, water stains on your water heater or furnace.
  • Replace damaged, loose or missing shingles immediately.
  • If you see sand- like granules in your gutters, it is a warning that your roofing materials are deteriorating. Contact Midwest Gutter to help you find a solution for this issue.
  • Remove leaves and tree branches from the roof because they trap moisture and decompose causing roof damage.
  • Clean your gutters often.
  • Don’t put heating cables on the lower part of your roof.  The heat from the cables can actually create water problems for your roof an attic.  A better solution is improving insulation in your attic.
  • Clean snow and ice off of your roof to avoid ice dam build- up.
  • If ice dams form, it is most likely an insulation and ventilation problem and not a gutter problem.  Make sure you have adequate insulation and ventilation in your attic.
