color. The trim. Even the landscaping. But did you know that your roof makes up a significant portion of your home’s appearance? That’s why updating your roof with Owens Corning ™ Duration ® Series Shingles Designer Colors Collection is about more than function. It’s a great opportunity to bring your home’s accents together—improving its aesthetics and perceived value.

Minnesota asphalt roofing shingles are comprised of fiberglass or organic based materials, a waterproofing binder (asphalt), minerals and a protective layer of granules. The aging or life span of these shingles will be affected by:
- The grade of shingles
Slope and position of the roof against the sun
Attic space and ventilation
Poor attic ventilation will greatly reduce the life of roofing shingles

Replacing your roof is probably one of the biggest investments to consider. An expense this large can become daunting when it comes time to search for the right price and the right company. That is why when you choose to work with Lifetime Builders we combine both affordability and quality for every job.
Our honesty and integrity lie within our work, and we truly believe by advising customers to follow through with the proper upkeep of their roof will help them avoid costly repairs and even unnecessary roof replacements. We can accurately determine the strength, stability and overall condition of your roof and be able to advise you on whether or not you need a full replacement.
If you have a roof leak and wood rot or either of the two, sometimes the damage is severe and become far too expensive to fix. Any damage done to your roof, whether it is from a storm, heavy winds, or just everyday strain, can rack up hefty costs, which is why total replacement is often times ideal. Roof replacement is also more economical than re-roofing because you won’t have to risk suffering from the old problems you used to have. By installing brand new materials, you are eliminating problem areas altogether and starting fresh, which means your roof can last throughout the duration of your stay in your home and even increase the value if you decide to sell.
