It is very important to have the right roof shingles, especially in the Michigan Summer. The right roof shingles can protect your home from many things. Shingles provide wind resistance, heat resistance, and algae resistance to your roof. However, without the right kind of shingles, your roof is left vulnerable to the elements.
Now that Winter is over, you should take the time to get your roof checked out. Winter weather in Michigan is brutal and it may have damaged your roof. Snow, sleet, and hail can cause holes to appear in the roof shingles or leakage through shutters.
It seems like it’s been raining every day. Recently a homeowner called their window company because they noticed water around their window. They thought it was the seal on the window, but were told the window was fine. It turned out that a shingle had been pushed back and water streamed along some flashing on wood that bordered a window. Luckily they called us for an inspection and a minor repair took care of it.
