Look at a fresh roof installation in Metamora, MI, and compare it to a few decades-old ones. You’ll see the details that make a difference in appearance and indicate degradation underneath. For example, fading colors from the loss of granules show that the shingles have seen better days. Looking closer, you may see shingle lifting and flashing seal damage which indicates that roof replacement may be needed.
A new roof looks sharper because it is carefully and professionally installed, from nailing patterns to flashing and edges. The seal protects your home from storm damage and melting snow and ice, increases energy efficiency, and keeps insects and vermin from exploring underneath. It’s an investment that can last from 25 to over 50 years.
