Signs You Need to Replace Your Roof
Some roofs may have noticeable areas of damage, a telltale sign it might need to be replaced. Other roofs may not have visible cosmetic issues, but you could have problems on the inside of your building, such as unusual leaks or frustrating, expensive drafts.
Because they are exposed to the elements, roofs deteriorate with age. Many standard roofs made of asphalt shingles (the most popular type of roofing material) will only last for 20 or so years. Some higher-end roofing materials like slate, metal, and clay are extremely durable and can go much longer between replacement periods, lasting anywhere from 50–100 years.
If a section of your roof is majorly damaged, it may be more cost effective to replace the entire roof rather than repair it. Depending on what your existing roof is made of, it can be difficult to fully match it to the materials used in the roof repair. We are happy to walk you through the most affordable, appropriate, long-term course of action for your roof, whether that’s a repair or a total replacement.
One of the first components you notice on a building is the roof. It can make or break the overall feeling and curb appeal of your property. When it comes to running a business, a fresh roof can give a more professional appearance to potential customers.
A shabby roof with missing shingles or visible signs of damage can make guests negatively associate your business or home with its less than stellar exterior. If your roof is showing outward signs of deterioration, you may want to replace it to avoid a decrease in property or home value.
Extreme weather events and natural disasters can damage your roof beyond repair. In Michigan, harsh winters bring heavy amounts of snow, thick ice buildup, chunks of hail, and varying drastic temperatures that can wreak havoc on the shingles, gutters, and overall structural integrity of your roof, leading to water damage or skyrocketing electric bills. In many cases, insurance companies will cover the cost of roof replacement when the damage is sustained from inclement weather.
As a homeowner, it is important to have an effective, attractive roof. A quality, immaculately installed roof means your electric bills won’t leave your jaw on the floor. Reroofing can also increase the value of your home and make it stand out from the rest in your neighborhood, which is a great selling point if you decide to move out.
When it comes to residential roofs, we can install many kinds of materials. We offer a variety of budget-friendly options that can provide the exact look you’re seeking. Our residential roofing materials include:
- 3-tab, architectural, or luxury asphalt shingles
- Wood shingles
- Metal panels
- Composite shingles
- Clay tiles
- Slate shingles
We are also experienced in installing flat residential roofs and solar panel roofs.
We take pride in helping to keep your business looking its best. Reroofing your commercial property means maintaining effective insulation in your building while also protecting the interior from water damage.
For commercial roofs, we use thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) roofing and ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM). These recycled, rubber-based roofs are both affordable, durable options, though EPDM (which can only be installed as a flat roof) is better for colder climates, due to its dark color that naturally absorbs and retains heat well.
Installing and replacing roofs has been in our family for generations. As a result, the quality of our materials, installation, and customer service remains unmatched.

Very HAPPY with Legacy Roofing, they came out and replaced my roof in one day! We have not had any issues with our new roof, the guys that came to the house were very professional and they did a great job on clean up as well. We recommended them to the neighbors and it looks like two of them are going with Legacy also...they won't be disappointed!!!
When replacing our roof, they did a great job. And when we ran into unexpected repairs, they made us a great offer to knock out that repair too. We are very happy with Legacy Roofing and Restorations.
Great customer service, very helpful with and responsive to many questions. Crew on site was friendly and cleaned up EVERYTHING. I was truly impressed with how clean the property was after the crew left.
We had Legacy redo the whole roof, they were quick, neat and very responsible and professional. They did an excellent clean-up afterward and I would highly recommend them.
