Here is a roofing job our company just completed near us in Royal Oak. With this house we stripped off all of existing 3-tab shingles and replaced them with Owens Corning Duration shingles, which provide great protection of the roof for the price. It also includes a 50 year warranty through Owens Corning.

Royal Oak Existing Roof

This roof had a 3 tab shingle which are thinner than the shingles we use, so they don’t last as long. You can also notice some of the damage in the valleys where the rain and weather cause wear. The accent peak also had some cedar shingles.

Royal Oak Roof Tear Off

We start by tearing off all of the existing shingles.  Once all of the shingles are removed, we inspect the roof decking for any damage and replace the damaged wood.

Royal Oak Roof Synthetic Underlayment and Ice & Water Shield

This is one of the most important factors in getting your roof installed correctly.  Correct roofing specs call for 3 feet of ice and water shield along the bottom.  At Martino Home Improvements we do 6 feet!  We also used the Owens Corning Pro Armor synthetic underlayment to provide extra protection underneath the roofing shingles.

Owens Corning Duration Shingles

And the finally the most important part… the shingle.  On this Royal Oak roof we used Owens Corning Duration Shingles in the Estate Gray color.  Owens Corning makes the most durable roofing shingles on the market.
