Restoring your Grand Rapids property.

Grand Rapids
Roof Replacement

When the time comes to replace your roof, it can feel overwhelming. There is the cost to worry about, as well as how the process will impact your ability to live in your home or run your business. At Best Roofing, we know that Grand Rapids roof replacement is difficult for you, and we take every possible measure to reduce your stress.

ROOF REPLACEMENT

When Roof Replacement Is Needed

Only an expert roofer can determine when replacement is needed rather than repair. On average, residential roofs need to be replaced every 25 or so years. For commercial roofs, that is typically more like every 15 years. However, certain materials tend to last longer, such as metal roofing. Our Best Roofing technicians will help guide you on when your roof should be replaced.

The Best Roofing Roof Replacement Process

If this is your first time facing roof replacement, you likely feel intimidated by all the unknowns. Rather than just diving in, we want you to feel empowered in your roof replacement process. We break our Grand Rapids roof replacement service into seven essential steps.

Inspecting the Roof

The first step is to thoroughly inspect your roof, ensuring we have a clear picture of what is wrong and how extensive the replacement needs to be. As we work, we compile a detailed report backed up by photographic evidence, making it easy to show you precisely what is wrong.

Making a Plan

Based on the report, we will start working on your roof replacement plan. Your lead technician will partner with you in selecting options for colors and materials, as well as any other feature you would like to see added to your new roof. With all of this determined, we can then create a precise quote for your Gran Rapids roof replacement.

Removing the Current Roof

In most cases, removing the current roof is the longest single process in roof replacement. We take great care to avoid damaging other parts of the structure as we work, as well as haul away all the materials to keep the job site clean. During this step, everything above the plywood is removed.

Inspecting the Support Structures

Until the old roof is removed, we are unable to fully examine the support structures and framing. At this time, we might discover new issues that require more steps to fix. If we do, we will update the bid accordingly. Holes and rot in the boards will be documented and we will discuss all issues with you.

Installing Moisture Barriers

Once the framing is in good shape, we move on to installing the underlayment. This serves to keep moisture out of your home—think of it as the last defense against rain. We also install flashing around vents, chimneys, and other structures to waterproof these vulnerable spots.

Placing the Roofing Material

Once the moisture barriers are good to go, it's time to add the roofing material. In most residential roofs, this will be some type of shingle. This step tends to go quickly since our expert team has the right tools for applying shingles. Once this is over, your Grand Rapids roof replacement is almost done.

Wrapping Up

After the shingles or other roofing material is in place, we move on to small but essential details, like ridge vents and gutters. After everything is as it should be, we get your stamp of approval, then clean up the job site, ensuring no debris is left behind to cause problems.
