What can Compass Exteriors do for you?

Compass Exteriors can do a full assessment for you and note the overall condition of your roof, presence of storm damage, note any weak spots, or future vulnerabilities to your roof’s integrity. 

It is important to choose a deeply qualified roofing contractor for an inspection for many reasons. The first reason is that if you choose a contractor that doesn’t have knowledge of local conditions and roof types they miss signs of hidden damage or misread the cause of the damage. It is critical to hire roofing contractors need to be aware of how best to document damage so that insurance claims are successful. Our team has over 20 years of successfully claiming and repairing storm damaged roofs.

You should be very wary of any contractors knocking on your door claiming to be sent by your insurance company. Insurance companies do not reach out to customers through a third-party roofing company. 


Sometimes storm damage scammers will look for problems that aren’t there or even create damage in an attempt to file a fruadulant insurance claim. You want to avoid being taken for a ride by these unscrupulous roofers by doing your due-diligence and researching a roofing company with a strong track record of customer satisfaction like Compass Exteriors. Checking the reviews across multiple websites and getting a feel for their office team will help paint a picture of the roofing company you are dealing with.

The following conditions are situations when a roof inspection is necessary:

  • After a major hail or wind storm passes through.
  • Cars in your neighborhood have hail damage.
  • Your siding is damaged from a storm.
  • Broken/downed trees in your area.
  • Shingle granules around your downspouts.
  • Anytime you experience a water leak from the ceiling. 
  • A year of severe ice dams.
  • Every 5 years for a routine check-up.

Storm damage is not always visible, so you may not even realize your roof has been affected. Sometimes the signs are obvious, for instance if other parts of your home are damaged or you notice that neighbors vehicles are damaged. 

We do not advise homeowners to go on a roof they suspect as damaged, as it can be quite dangerous. Instead, call your local roofers at Compass Exteriors to perform a professional inspection.

Even if the above situations for a roof inspection don’t apply to you, it is always good to follow a hunch. If you suspect something is wrong with your roof you should get it checked out ASAP. It only takes a few shingles to be missing off your roof to allow water to penetrate to the underlayment. Even errant debris like small rocks or branches can be harmful, if it damages your roof and enables the water to seep through under the shingles. 

We may also find that you have bad drainage, in which case the water will have gathered on your roof and the moisture seeped beneath your roof, potentially making its way into your home or creating favorable conditions for mold or rot. 

In Minnesota, ice dams are almost inevitable for homeowners. We are noticing that freeze thaw cycles are getting longer each year which is increasing the incidence of ice dams. Ice dams form a ridge on the edge of your roof, preventing the snowmelt from draining off of your roof. The water becomes backed up and eventually finds its way into your home, wreaking havoc on your ceilings, insulation, and walls, all of which may sustain water damage and start to mold and rot. 

If you noticed that you had ice dams on your roof this year, it is crucial to get your roof inspected as you want to ensure that you address any damage immediately before the conditions degrade further.

“I hadn’t had my roof inspected in a while and gave Compass Exteriors a call and I’m glad I did – it turns out some debris ended up on the roof during the last storm we had and dented some of the shingles. The water would have gotten under the roof and leaked into my home. Thank god we got the roof inspected. “

- Tom, 54 years old

“We just moved in a few months ago and we wanted to double check that the roof is in good shape, we weren’t planning on replacing it just yet. Turns out it’s still holding up, and the inspection was completely free of charge. When the time comes to replace it, I know we’re gonna have Compass Exteriors do the job.”

- Mary, 32 years old

“My dad’s roof was damaged, you could see it from the yard. But my father is elderly and can’t climb up on the roof. Compass Exteriors handled the repair for us and we’re so grateful.”

- Deborah, 62 years old
