Roofing Questions & Answers
How many years of EXPERIENCE do we have?
We have been installing new roofs in the SW Michigan area for over 24 years now!
How do I know WHEN I need a new roof?
If your home has an asphalt shingle roof that’s more than 20 years old, it may need to be replaced, even if it isn’t showing outward signs of failure.
What Are the Signs of a Failing Roof?
Many signs of a failing roof can be spotted during a visual inspection, which include:
Loose or missing shingles
Water leaks in your top-floor ceilings
Granule loss off the shingles (Excess granules in your gutters)
Curled, cracked, or blistering shingles
Dark or stained areas
HOW LONG will my project take?
From our set up, to tearing off the existing roof, installing new underlayment, flashing, & shingles, all the way to a VERY DETAILED clean-up ---- Most residential roof replacements will take us 1-2 days. (Depending on the size & complexity of your roof, a project can be more than 2 days. Our Estimator will be able to give you a timeline upon the initial site visit.)
Do I need new GUTTERS too?
Your gutter system is one of the hero's of your house, preventing a rainy day from becoming a major issue. Most gutters can last for about 20 years, but knowing when to make the call to opt for a gutter replacement can be tough. Here are six signs you may need new gutters:
Pooling of Water
Water Marks Directly Beneath the Gutters
Gutters Sagging or Pulling Away from the House
Does my HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE cover my roof?
Most homeowner’s insurance covers structural damage caused by weather factors such as hail, wind, fire, and falling trees. This coverage can include your roof. Depending on your policy, coverage may include repair or replacement and may require you to pay a deductible.
