In Southeastern Michigan, the weather runs the gamut between idyllic and peaceful to wild and wooly! In Northville, residents experience everything from blue-skied sunny summer days, to torrential rains to below-freezing, snowy winters. That means that the roofs in your neck of the woods need to be able to take that abuse in stride, and without failures like curled or missing shingles and leaks. In short, a good-quality, well-constructed roof in Northville isn’t a luxury — it’s an absolute necessity.
Northville residents are especially proud of their charming Victorian-era historic district with its elegant homes and businesses. The town also has its share of well-kept older homes. Each family that calls one of the charming homes in Northville deserves a roof that does justice to their home, both from a curb-appeal standpoint, and as a reliable and durable source of protection.
Inspect, Repair, Replace
Many of us are guilty of ignoring our roofs until they fail. That’s a mistake, because catching problems early means that you’ll need to spend less money on simple repairs, as compared to having to completely replace your roof. Regular inspections by a qualified, reputable roofing company are a smart way to extend the life of an existing roof, catching small problems before they become large ones. And be wary of a roofing company who charges you for an inspection. That’s a service that a reputable roofer will normally provide free of charge!
Repairs might entail replacing flashing around structures like your chimney or vent pipes, replacing curled or missing shingles, or correcting low spots on a commercial building’s flat roof.
Of course, inspections aren’t reserved for preventive maintenance. Sometimes, you’ll know you have a problem simply because you’ve observed certain signs that your roof is failing. For example, you may notice
Other signs might not be so obvious, and may require climbing a ladder and navigating a roof, which is a dangerous undertaking for a homeowner, and a job that’s really best left to a professional. Some not-so-obvious signs of a problematic roof are
Quality Materials are a Must
Roof shingles installation and quality are necessary factors in ensuring a dependable, beautiful, and high-performing roof in Northville, which means you’ve got to do your homework to make sure you hire a roofer who’ll provide both expert installation and high-quality materials. That means using GAF and CertainTeed shingles — which are two of the very best, high-quality shingles in the roofing industry, offering great color selection and dependable performance.
Professional Workmanship is Non-Negotiable
Roofing is dangerous work, so it’s vitally important that it be performed by professionals — workers who have been trained to work under the challenging conditions presented by steeply sloped roofs and sometimes slippery conditions. And it’s because of the inherent dangers of working on roofs that workers be fully trained, certified, licensed, insured and bonded — to protect you from any liability and to ensure their own safety and well-being.
Reputation and Longevity in the Roofing Business
The roofing companies that have been around for decades are the ones who’ve proved their reliability and workmanship. They’re the ones who are licensed, bonded and insured. They’re the ones who show up when they say they will and finish the job quickly by virtue of their knowledge and expertise. They’re dependable and professional. They’re the ones whose business is roofs — and only roofs. After all, do you really want to entrust one of your home’s most important structures to a “handyman”, who may be a proverbial “jack of all trades, master of none”, and someone who may or may not be insured, just because he’s offered you a low-ball price quote for a new roof?
Longevity in the roofing business — as in most businesses — is no accident. It’s earned by performance, reliability, and fair practices! Companies like Angie’s List and Home Advisor offer savvy tips for choosing a good roofing contractor such as
Household emergencies don’t wait for an opportune time to occur, and few of us these days have the luxury of liquid savings to tap when something unexpected arises. Many people, unfortunately, are left with no option but to apply for a home equity loan to finance repairs, an option that in effect, puts a lien on their biggest asset! A good roofing company recognizes this fact and has the ability and financial integrity to be able to work with customers and offer financing, when needed.
There’s also no such thing as “one type fits all” financing. The financing program offered by your roofing company should be flexible enough to work with your budget and circumstances.
