Guide to Replacing Your Roof Stress Free

5 Steps to Top Quality Roof Replacement

Replacing your roof is a big decision. Allied Construction and Restoration, your premier residential and commercial roofing installers, is here to help you make informed decisions.  Using our 5 steps you’ll experience stress-free roof replacement.

Before you sign a contract to replace your roof, consider these 5 factors.


  1. Do you need a repair or replacement?
  2. Which Contractor Provides Top Quality?
  3. Should Your Contractor Be Local?
  4. Which roofing materials should you use?
  5. When is the best time to replace your roof?

Determine if you need Roof Replacement vs. Repair

The first step in getting your roof back to top shape is to decide whether you need a total roof replacement or a repair.

Common indicators it might be time for a roof replacement include:

  • Water damage in your home or business from a leaky roof
  • Cracked or damaged shingles – curled edges, bald spots where the granules have worn away
  • Your roof is beginning to sag
  • Mold is growing on your roof or in your attic
  • Increasing energy bills
  • Your roof is 20-25 years old

Everyday wear and tear slowly degrades your roof. Extremes in weather, especially the harsh winters in Southeast Michigan erode your roof over time. If you’re concerned about your roof, give our professional roofers a call. We’ll come out and do a thorough inspection of your roof with no obligation to you.

And you can count on us to give you an honest appraisal.

Just because your roof is leaking or suffering minor damage doesn’t mean it needs replacing.  We will help you determine the extent of the damage and choose the best path forward for repair or replacement.

Damaged roofing should be evaluated to determine if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

Select the Best Roofing Material Options/Cost Factors

Replacing your roof is a long-term investment. We understand that price is a key factor. But don’t let price be your only determining factor.


Different roofing materials have different expected life cycles.  When you pay for a high quality roofing shingle, it can last twice as long as a less expensive one.  In the long run, this can save you money with the reduced labor and material costs of an unnecessary mid-life re-roof.


It is crucial to protect your roof investment by choosing quality materials and workmanship to ensure long-lasting results. You want to get the best materials warranty possible.


Allied Construction and Restoration offers customizable roofing options.


  • GAF High-Quality Asphalt Shingles
  • High-Class Metal Roofing
  • Economical Low Pitch Roll Membrane Roofing for flat roofs

All roofing options come in a variety of colors for you to choose from. Call to schedule your Free, In-home consultation. We’ll bring the samples to you and discuss your roofing options.


We’ll also evaluate the functionality of your roof as a whole.  If necessary, we’ll recommend venting, insulation, and other features to protect and enhance your home.


We’ll discuss the pros and cons of a complete roof replacement vs. a nail-over. (Allied ALWAYS performs a complete tear-off of the old roofing materials.)


A complete roof tear-off and replacement is always best. While a nail-over will cut down on cost and labor, it won’t address underlying issues like soft spots or rotting wood. And unfortunately this can lead to more expensive repairs down the road for those who thought they were saving money by choosing this route.


We take care of the disposal of your roofing material. And we’ll rake you yard with a magnetic nail rake and thoroughly clean up any roofing debris.


From start to finish, you can depend on Allied Construction and Restoration for top-quality roof replacement and repair.

Schedule Roof Replacement at the Best Time

While rain, snow, heat, and humidity can all impact your roof replacement, roof replacements can be done any time of the year.  The best time to replace your roof is as soon as you notice any trouble with it.


If you’re proactively replacing your roof, you may have the luxury of choosing when you want to replace it. The replacement may be triggered by a certain event, like not selling your house with an old roof, or at a certain time of year.


In this case, the summer and fall can be a great time for roof replacement. Jobs tend to have fewer delays and can be completed at a faster rate in the late summer and early fall.


The cooler temperatures provide comfortable working conditions and allow for longer working hours. And rain and snow are not generally concerns that have to be planned around this time of year.
