Minnesota can experience some extreme weather conditions, so roofing must be done with quality and care. Steamy hot summers and frigid, tundra-like winters can cause serious problems, as can storms and hail. Strong winds can lift or bend shingles, leaving your roof vulnerable to the elements. Similarly, hail can damage your shingles, allowing rain or sleet to sneak in. If you want your roof to last, protected from the elements, you’ll need the right materials for the job. We’ll help you get what you need, doing all the heavy lifting to ensure your investment will be protected for years to come.
Our goal is to guarantee that your roof is properly and safely installed, utilizing the best materials in your price range. We are a preferred contractor of GAF, Owens Corning, and CertainTeed, meaning we’re required to be up to date on all products through continuing education. Whether you want a tear-off or a roof for your new house, you can trust that we’ll be working with top-quality materials. We don’t just offer one type of roof, however—you have options to choose from:
- Asphalt Shingles: Asphalt shingles are certainly the most common roofing materials, and have been for a while. Their popularity is largely due to their durability and affordability. They can come in a wide variety of styles and colors, and offer effective waterproofing. Roofs built with asphalt shingles can usually last about 20 years.
- Wood Shingles: Wood shingles surpass both asphalt shingles and metal shingles when it comes to environmental friendliness. In addition to being great for the environment, wood shingles are also durable, and can last upwards of 30 years.
We make all our coupons and specials available at all times, year-round, so you won’t need to track down discounts or other offers. You can rest easy knowing there will be no need for price haggling.

Gutters are one of the primary ways you can protect your roof from the elements. They redirect rainwater and any other precipitation, moving it from away from your home’s immediate perimeter. Without gutters this liquid, whether from rain, sleet or spring thaws, can severely damage both your foundation and siding. If water is collecting near a foundation wall the water will work its way under the wall and cause it to settle. Water under the foundation can also cause cracks to form in basement walls, which could eventually lead to flooding.
Properly-installed gutters also help protect your house from rotting. Undirected runoff can get into openings in your paint and caulking, which can make for some problematic wood rot. Similarly, unchecked runoff from heavy rains can erode dirt around your house, creating muddy soil and damage to your grass. If you want to maintain the integrity of your home, you need gutters to collect and divert runoff from your roof.
Gutters can also help add aesthetic value to your home. We offer a variety of colors and finishes, so you can choose what looks best. Your gutters will also help keep your home’s exterior clean and pleasing to the eye. Without them, water pouring off the edge of the roof can splash dirt and mud onto your exterior walls, or harm flowers and shrubs below.
Today’s Exteriors can replace, repair, or install your gutters, using quality materials at affordable prices. We can also install gutter cover systems, which are an invaluable asset to your gutters. Have you ever tried cleaning out your gutters? It’s a real drag, a miserable, smelly mess. Gutter covers minimize the amount of cleaning necessary, keeping water, leaves, and other debris from clogging up your gutter. They let water through, but prevent blockages. It’s the blockages that cause problems, and just because you’ll have to do that pesky gutter cleaning. A clogged gutter can cause rainwater to back up onto your roof, which can damage your shingles and pull the gutter away from your house. Not only that, the water can end up leaking into your home. All of this can be avoided, however, with a well-installed gutter guard system.
We also specialize in storm damage. Over the years, we have become experts at dealing with insurance restoration work. There is no one who knows how to get your insurance restoration project from start to finish faster or more professionally.
We offer many services, but perhaps our most valuable is our free inspection program. Storm damage to your roof can lead to serious future problems. Because of the nature of the damage, many people don’t realize their home is in jeopardy because leaks don’t always occur immediately. We will inspect your property free of charge and with no obligation. If there is damage, we will walk you through the insurance process. We will work with your agency every step of the way, making everything as seamless as possible for you.
