No one looks forward to replacing their roof, but getting a roof replacement is one of those necessary evils that comes with being a homeowner. Whether you need to get a new roof due to damage or just old age, there are three major things you should consider when going forward with a roof replacement.
Tree Branches Hanging Over Your Roof
One of the biggest threats to your new roof will be damage due to falling branches or limbs. Nip that problem in the bud by trimming back or even cutting down any trees that extend over your roof before you replace the old with new. If the threat consists of just a few overgrown branches you may be able to do the trimming yourself with a sturdy ladder, pruning tool and, of course, a helper on hand in case of any issues or accidents. However, if you are uncomfortable with the DIY route or the issue is bigger than what you can tackle be sure to hire a reputable tree trimming or removal service. Having these services done can greatly enhance the overall roof replacement process.
Quality shingles with Scotchguard Protection
If you need to replace your roof you might as well do it right with the best Ann Arbor roof replacement company and top-quality shingles. Roof Advance uses the best roofing materials including ATLAS roofing shingles, Pinnacle Pristine shingles, Stormmaster shake shingles, and Certainteed Residential Roofing products. We also provide Scotchguard protection on our shingles which will prevent algae from growing on your roof and help them last longer.
Properly Installed Gutters
Improperly installed gutters can lead to all kinds of damage to your roof and home. If the water, snow and ice is unable to drain off the roof as intended it can either back up on your roof causing weak spots and leaks or it can drain off behind the gutters rotting out your siding and damaging your landscape. Make sure when you replace your roof that the company you hire pays attention to properly installing the gutters, including gutter protection, as well or it could cost you a lot more money down the road. No other Ann Arbor roofer will give such attention to details like these as Roof Advance.
