Roof Replacement , if done right, is something most homeowners should go through only once or twice in the life of their home.  However, in Michigan we have intense winter weather systems such as hail, heavy snow, freezing temperatures, and gale force winds that can rapidly take it’s toll on your roof.

At A Better Roof For Less, located in the heart of Genesee County, Michigan, we believe in providing top-tier roofing services that stand the test of time. With over two decades of experience in the industry, our team of experts is dedicated to ensuring that every roof replacement job we undertake is done with precision, professionalism, and an unwavering commitment to installation quality.

The process of replacing a roof is not a small undertaking, but it's one we have honed to perfection over the years. It begins with a thorough inspection of your existing roof to assess the extent of the damage and determine the best course of action. We then provide you with a detailed estimate and a comprehensive plan for your roof replacement.

Once we commence the work, our crew will carefully remove your old roofing materials, ensuring minimal disruption to your property. We then inspect the underlying decking for any damage that might compromise the integrity of your new roof. Any necessary repairs are done at this stage before we proceed with the installation of the new roof.

Your Roof Replacement Shingle Options

The choice of roofing material is critical to the longevity and aesthetics of your roof. Asphalt shingles are a popular choice due to their durability, affordability, and wide range of style and color options. There are several types of asphalt shingles, and understanding the differences can help you make the best choice for your home.

Three-tab shingles are the most traditional type of asphalt shingle. They are made from a single layer of asphalt and have a flat, uniform appearance. These shingles are lightweight, cost-effective, and can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance. However, they are less resistant to high winds and severe weather conditions than other types of shingles.

Laminated shingles, also known as dimensional or architectural shingles, are a more durable and aesthetically pleasing option. These shingles are constructed with multiple layers of asphalt, giving them a thicker, textured appearance that mimics the look of wood or slate. Laminate shingles are more resistant to wind and weather damage and typically come with longer warranties. Their dimensional look adds a touch of elegance to any home.

At A Better Roof For Less, we are experts in installing all types of asphalt shingles. We take pride in our meticulous installation process, which includes proper nailing techniques and pattern staggering to ensure maximum durability and weather resistance. We also pay special attention to critical areas of your roof, like the valleys, ridges, and roof penetrations, where we use top-quality flashing and sealants to prevent water infiltration.

Our Roof Replacement Process

Selecting the right products: We offer roof replacement using shingles from reputable companies such as Owens Corning and CertainTeed. This helps ensure you get a high quality roofing system that can last for many years.

Roof deck preparation: We must remove the existing roofing materials and inspect the roof deck for any damage or rot. We can repair or replace any damaged sections before proceeding with the installation.

Underlayment installation:  We choose to use underlayment products that are preferably from the same manufacturer as your chosen shingles. This approach ensures that the products are designed to work together seamlessly, optimizing the performance and longevity of your new roof.

The underlayment serves as a secondary barrier, sitting between the roof deck and the shingles, providing an additional layer of protection against water infiltration. It helps to shield your home from any water that may get past the shingles due to heavy rain, wind-driven rain, or ice dams.

Starter shingle installation: We apply starter shingles along the eaves and rakes of your roof. This helps prevent water from seeping into the roof deck and provides a clean edge for the first course of shingles.

Proper shingle installation: We install asphalt shingles according to the specific manufacturer's guidelines, which include proper nailing and pattern staggering.  This ensures your shingles can shed water correctly and will stand up against the elements.

Ventilation:  We always ensure proper attic ventilation by installing ridge vents or other appropriate ventilation products. This helps regulate temperature and moisture levels in the attic, prolonging the life of the roof system and improving the comfort in your home.

Flashing and sealing: We install metal flashing around roof penetrations such as chimneys, vents, and skylights, as well as in valleys and along roof-to-wall transitions. We also apply an appropriate sealant to create a watertight barrier.

Hip and ridge cap shingles: We install compatible hip and ridge cap shingles to provide a finished look and additional protection to the roof's peak and ridges.

Warranty registration: After the installation is complete we offer a limited lifetime warranty on the shingles and we also offer a 10 year workmanship warranty on our installation to give you peace of mind.

Questions About Roof Replacement?

A Bettr Roof For Less

Asphalt shingle roofs generally last between 20 to 30 years, depending on the quality of the shingles, the climate, and how well the roof is maintained. Higher-quality laminate or architectural shingles can last up to 50 years.

3-tab shingles are traditional, lightweight, and cost-effective, but they are less durable than other types. Laminate and architectural shingles are thicker and more durable, with a layered, dimensional look that mimics more expensive roofing materials.

While it is possible to install a new layer of shingles over an existing one, it is generally not recommended. Removing the old shingles allows for a thorough inspection of the roof deck and ensures better adhesion for the new shingles.

Choosing a color for your shingles is largely a matter of personal preference, but you should consider factors like your home's exterior color, the color of the shingles on neighboring homes, and how well the shingle color will blend with the natural surroundings.

The timeline for a roof replacement depends on the size of the roof and the weather conditions, but typically, a roof replacement can be completed in a few days.

While roof replacements can be done any time of year, the best time is typically in the late spring or early fall when the weather is milder.

Signs that your roof may need to be replaced include widespread discoloration or fading, a large number of missing or damaged shingles, granules from the shingles showing up in your gutters, or evidence of water damage in your attic.  If your roof is older than 20 years old then it's also likely a good candidate for replacement.

Regular maintenance includes inspecting your roof for damage after severe weather, keeping your gutters clean, removing any debris from the roof surface, and having a professional inspection done periodically.

This largely depends on your home's construction. Most modern homes can handle the weight of heavier laminate or architectural shingles. However, at A Better Roof For Less we can assess your home's structure to ensure it can support the weight of the chosen shingles.

Yes, solar panels can be installed on asphalt or laminate shingles, but it's crucial to have a professional evaluate your roof's condition and structure before installation.

Most asphalt and laminate shingles have a Class A fire rating, the highest available. This means they are highly resistant to fire originating from outside the home.
