How Important it is to Replace Your Roof
If your roof is damaged, you will have to replace it as soon as possible. You can avoid many complications if you repair them correctly in the first place. One can do this by maintaining and repairing your roof to prevent a creation. The goal is to avoid major problems before they happen, and that is what you should do if any damage appears on your roof. The roof replacement process is a long one. It may take up to two weeks for your roof replacement to be complete. Michigan roofing contractors will perform a full inspection to determine the damage and repair methods.
The process should start with tearing off all of the old shingles, down to bare wood. From there, we inspect any wood for damage. If a roofing company doesn’t tear the shingles off, then you are leaving your home exposed to any rot or damage that can be lurking under there. Once we know the base of the roof is good, we don’t just install new shingles. We lay down ice & water barrier 6ft thick around the perimeter of the roof and in all the valleys, then cover the remaining wood with synthetic underlayment. We also replace all the drip edge and flashing. We use roofing starter strips underneath the first row of shingles and we use true hip & ridge shingles across the peaks. We don’t just add a new layer of shingles like other companies do, we install a complete roofing system that will last you 30 to 50 years (or more).
The roof is an essential part of your home because it protects it from the elements. If you do not properly maintain and repair your roof, it can damage the integrity of the entire structure. You need to be very careful about this so that you do not have any problems with water damage or other forms of damage to your roof.
