About South Dakota Roofing

Roofing contractors play an important role in building and construction. Their duties include consultation, roofing installation, and repair. Roofing contractors are trained to know the best roofing type for your home. Residential roofing contractors work with metal or asphalt roofing materials, and sometimes with cedar shank, depending on the climate. Roofing contractors are also responsible for weatherproofing roofs from water or harsh winters.

Typical Climate

South Dakota experiences warm summers and frigid winters. It's vulnerable to heavy winds and droughts. The average temperature in winter is 12 degrees. In summer, the temperature averages around 74 degrees. The coolest temperature on record in South Dakota was -58 degrees on February 17, 1936. The warmest temperature was 120 degrees on July 5, 1936. South Dakota averages between 13 inches to 24 inches of rainfall, depending on the location. Snowfall is around 41 inches each year.

Roofers' Licenses

The state of South Dakota doesn't require roofing contractors to obtain a special license. It's best to turn to independent organizations to verify the reliability of a roofing contractor. The Better Business Bureau is a trusted, third party organization that documents complaints filed against contractors. This is a valuable resource for consumers looking for an independent analysis of a roofing contractor.

Common Roofing Issues

South Dakota's long winters force roofing contractors to use climate-specific techniques--such as roof- and eaves-deicing systems and gutter-melt cables--which melt ice and snow and keep it from forming. Manually shoveling snow off of roofs also helps to prevent leaks, of course. The biggest obstacle in South Dakota roofing is caused by ice dams. Ice dams form when the heat from a poorly insulated house starts to warm snow on the roof. The snow slides down the roof and then refreezes in the eaves of the roof if the temperature is cold enough, creating a dam.

Unusual Roofs in SD

The most unusual rooftop in South Dakota is on the Chapel in the Hills. Built in 1969, the Chapel in the Hills is a replica of the Borgund Stave Church in Norway. It's a stave church, compromised mostly of wooden elements. The Chapel in the Hills features architecture from the Middle Ages.
