We know a new roof is a big investment, so our "repair first" approach allows you to make the right investment decision for you...at the right time. We're not going to sell you an expensive roof if you don't need one.

SIGNS THAT YOUR ROOF NEEDS ATTENTION
Have you noticed peeling paint at or near your roofline? This could be an indication of poor ventilation and moisture issues.
Have you noticed stains on your ceiling or walls? There may be a leak in the roof. Small stains can quickly turn into more serious water damage if left unchecked.
Have you noticed curling shingles on your roof? That's a telltale sign it's time for a repair or replacement.
If you have sagging rafters in your attic, it could mean that you have a moisture leak somewhere in your roof.
GRANUALES IN THE GUTTERS
If you have granuales in your gutters, that means shingles are drying out and losing UV protection. That may mean it's time for a new roof.
Are you finding parts of your shingles in yoru gutters or yard? Then it may be time for a new roof.

A large number of roofing problems can be repaired to extend the life of your roof.

Our inspectors will provide a repair first approach to each issue of concern. They will always be fair and honest about the condition of your roof by reviewing with you any weak or failing areas that should be addressed. Furthermore, if a new roof is needed, we will provide an estimate for a full replacement or for budgeting for the future

Usually the first step is to determine how much life the shingles on your roof have left in them. Sometimes re-flashing a chimney or re-shingleing a valley can add another 5-15 years to your roofing system. Sometimes the shingles are so brittle and the fiberglass mat is exposed and a repair just isnt possible. Having a professional roof inspection done to determine which option is best for your home would be recommended.
No, this is a common misconception. While the steel panels may have a longer lifespan, the material and labor costs are approximately 3X greater than a quality asphalt shingle.
Metal roof warranties are basically written to cover the paint finish on the steel, and range from 10-45 years depending on the manufacturer.
Figuring out what is and is not included in a shingle warranty requires doing some homework as their are alot of smoke and mirrors written in small print. The typical asphalt shingle warranty covers the product completely for 10 years, and prorates out to 50years, or what is considered "lifetime". There are also better products on the market that have full warranties lasting 20 years or more. We would recommend discussing these options with a professional roofing contractor that offers various products to be sure you are not getting a one size fits all roofing system.
A roof replacement project typically takes 1-3 days depending on the size and difficulty of the home. Other factors like weather, material availability, crew size, and daylight hours could also impact the timeframe.
There are ways to "dry in" a house in the event that a surprise rain storm pops up. Roofers should be planning around any major weather concerns. Keeping water out of your home is our goal before, during and after any roof replacement project.
When necessary our installers use scaffolding, walk planks, fall protection, and proper roofing attire to stay safe. We are fully insured and take the safety of our people very seriously.
We do a number of things to protect your home during a roof replacement project. We use a "catch all" tarping system to protect your siding, windows, and landscaping from falling debris during the project. We also have roofing buggies that can lift up to the edge of some roofs to help catch debris before it ever hits the ground. Protecting your home and keeping your property clean during your project is of the utmost importance to our company.
The cost of a new roof varies drastically depending on the size, difficulty, and the product being installed. A good ballpark average would be between $8k and $15k for standard material and an average size home.
There are numerous ways to ventilate an attic space. Properly balancing intake and exhaust vents is a good start. Seeking advise of a professional roofing contractor would be the best advice.
Not really here in Michigan. We experience all 4 seasons here in Michgan and and battling the sun is not something that we do here all year. Once you move past white shingles there is not much of a difference between grey and brown, or black and tan.
Our contracts are written with an excact price per unit in the event we find damaged or rotten deck boards on you roof. It may be know that you have some damaged decking before your project begins, but we feel that only charging our customers for exactly what we need to replace is in their best interest.

You will almost certainly see a difference, even if you have the exact same shingles. Asphalt shingles fade some and can darken from algae growth. A slight discoloration is usually apparent.
Flashing replacements and shingle blow offs are the most common. Chimneys, rake walls, pipe boots, and fascia transitions at the bottom of a valley make up most of the problems that cause leaks in a roof.
We warranty all repairs for 1 year, which will get you through all 4 seasons. Repairs will typically last much longer than that, however if you are not happy with the repair, with in that 1st year, we offer a no risk guarantee that will allow you to apply the price of the repair tward a new Weather Vane Roofing full roof replacement.

There are additional charges for damaged wood decking. We don't know what we don't know. So we prefer to wait and see what we find, then replace the decking as needed. All wood work costs are clearly laid out in our contract ahead of time.
Yes, we have many ways to try to slow down or stop a leak until we can get a more permanent solution scheduled. We can tarp, caulk, tar, or cover up most problems within a 24hr period in an emergency situation.
