Why You Need a Complete Roofing System from Your Kalamazoo Roofing Contractor, Sherriff-Goslin

When homeowners begin thinking about getting a roof replacement, they often focus on the aesthetics (shingle style and color) first. However, while the look of shingles is important, the style of one’s roof is not as important as making sure your Kalamazoo roofing contractor installs a complete roofing system. The components of a complete roofing system include four main parts – starter strip, underlayment, hip and ridge, and shingles with each of these performing a crucial function. However, there is more to it than just making sure your roofing system is made up of these components.

Why do homeowners need a complete roofing system?

As mentioned above, having each of the four components is not enough.  A complete roofing system should mean that all of the components are produced by the same manufacturer and are intended to be used together. When you use products that are not necessarily meant to be used together, you’re more than likely voiding important warranties. One of the major benefits of having a complete roofing system is the extended warranty that’s often offered by the manufacturer when you use all of their components.

When you don’t use a single manufacturer for a complete roofing system, you also have to worry about product reliability. When you find a shingle manufacturer you find dependable, it’s important to use their products throughout the entire roofing system. It does you no good to purchase shingles by a great manufacturer if you’re using off-brand underlayment that is more bubbling up and causing problems.
