Grimes, IA Home & Commercial Remodeling Services
When you take on your next Grimes repair or remodeling project, you may be looking for the services of a general contractor. There are many projects that a person can certainly complete themselves, but certain projects will require a skilled home improvement contractor.
Depending on the size and complexity of the project, a general contractor can be responsible for hiring out specialty contractors, getting necessary permits, and passing inspections. You may need plumbing, electric, flooring, cabinets, drywall, painting, and other specialists.
At Des Moines Home Doctor, we are general contractors who handle all this for Grimes residents. We also offer light commercial repair services.
One of the projects we love to take on is remodeling to incorporate a great room. This involves creating a space that includes an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining room, and living room. We can also help you replace the floors, repair or replace the roof, install siding, and much more.
Roofing Services In Grimes
One of the most common questions we get asked here at Des Moines Home Doctor is from homeowners concerned about whether or not they need a roof replacement. Time and again, our Grimes roofing contractors hear this: “My roofing and siding are 25 years old. Do we need to replace them or should we continue with repairing them?”
There does come a point when it’s necessary to replace your roof or it is more financially beneficial to go ahead and do it. If you let us take a look, we will be able to give you the best advice if you’re wondering about a roof replacement. If it is time, we can offer you advice about the different kinds of roofing materials.
When looking at roof materials, slate, copper and clay/concrete roofs all have a 50-year life expectancy while asphalt shingle roofs have a 20-year expectancy. Fiber-cement shingles should last approximately 25 years while wood shakes should be good for around 30 years.
Ultimately, the life of a roof depends on local weather conditions, proper building and design, material quality and the maintenance of the roofing material. Here in Iowa, it’s best to choose those that stand up well to the climate so you don’t wind up with early roof repairs or an early replacement.
