Products & Warranties
The Roof Doctor only uses the best building materials in the industry. We have just created a new page to give you more information about the products that we will use on your most important investment of your life, your home. There are so many products to choose from these days that it can get a little overwhelming. We are here to help.
We specialize in residential roofing, so that is where we will start. We only use the 3 shingle manufacturers on our roofs. This is because they have a long standing reputation as being the best quality product in the industry. It is also because they offer the best warranties in the business. More than just that, we believe them to be the best. Even other shingle manufacturers offer similar warranties, but we do not use them because we know the difference between a good shingle and a substandard one. We don't want you to ever have to use the manufacturers warranty. That is also why we guarantee our craftsmanship for a 5 year period, on top of the manufacturers warranty. That means that for the first 5 years, if there is any problem with the craftsmanship of our work, you can call us and we will take care of it at no cost to you. Some added piece of mind knowing you are protected from both the manufacturer and us. So now let's move on to our products.
Our preferred shingle manufacturer is GAF. We believe them to be the best roofing shingle in the business. They are America's largest roofing material manufacturer for a reason. They offer superior warranties, performance and appearance. We have created a link to their website so that you can find out more information about them. Just click on the link above.
Another shingle that we believe to be one of the best shingles you can buy is Certainteed. They have been around for a very long time for a reason. They are long lasting, provide a great appearance and of course, a great warranty. We also use Certainteed products for more than just roofing shingles. We use Certainteed siding products among other things. Click on the link to find more information on their products and warranties.
Our other manufacturer that we use is Owens Corning roofing shingles. This company has a long standing reputation for quality on a wide variety of products, not just roofing shingles. They have recently come out with new shingle varieties that offer a much better look than the ones they used to offer. We use their products and materials for more than just roofing shingles as well.
The Roof Doctor is promoting a NEW product! Rhino Roof synthetic felt deck protection. Rhino Roof is superior to regular felt in every way. It is about 25x stronger and 10x lighter than regular felt paper. It won't tear, blow off and is also significantly more durrarble than standard deck protection, inhibits mold growth and comes with a 10 year warranty! We are offering an upgrade to this superior product for only $10 per square. That's only 10 cents per square foot! Ask about it when you schedule a FREE estimate. We will be happy to show you the difference between it and a regular felt. We created a link so that you may check out the company's website yourself as well. Let us know what you think. Other roofing contractors will charge you a significant price increase for a product of this quality. Another way that WE MAKE ROOFS BETTER! There are many other forms of synthetic felt to choose from as well, we recommend Rhino Roof because of the value. Each company has it's own version of synthetic felt. GAF has two of the best out there, Tiger Paw and Deck Armor. Deck Armor is THE ONLY felt product that is breathable. If water gets under your shingles it can still evaporate, same if your wood gets wet. This can lengthen the life of your roof and your decking. We invite you to read our blogs that we post on Facebook to learn more about roofing. They are posted regularly and if you want to hear about a certain topic, you may request one by asking a question or just plain requesting me to talk about a certain product.
The Roof Doctor also uses a certified starter shingle at the eves and rakes of the roof. Most companies don't even use them at the eve. We use them at ALL perimeters. This raises the wind rating on the entire roofing system and is REQUIRED by shingle manufacturers in order for them to honor their LIFETIME warranties. Most roofing contractors just use a standard 3-tab shingle turned upside down as a starter shingle and only even do that at the eve. They do it for the same reason they cut any other corner, it is a little bit cheaper for them. Just one more way we are Making Roofs Better!
The Roof Doctor has also recently started offering stain, mold & algae removal and prevention systems. Few roofing companies offer these services. Each situation is different, but products and services start at just a few hundred dollars. An insignificant investment when compared to the thousands of dollars spent on replacing your entire roof. We offer cleaning services to quickly remove these problems, as well as zinc stripping to prevent future problems. Some cases call for both cleaning and zinc strip application. Call (248) 632-6332 today for a FREE evaluation and estimate!
When you call The Roof Doctor for an estimate, you will meet directly with the owner. I will show you shingle samples and offer you a wide variety of colors, styles and many other choices. Weather you are just looking for the most basic, low cost roof, or you want a higher quality roof with more and higher quality options, we will show you all of your options and match your ideal roofing system to the best value possible. The Roof Doctor, Making Roofs Better!
As we are continuing to update our site almost daily, there will be more detailed content added to this page very soon. Keep checking to see updates as they are published. Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you again soon.
We have added a new product to our line of shingle manufacturers that we carry. We now install Tamko shingles as well as our other 3 shingle lines. Tamko offers something that the other 3 do not, a 15 year up front protection plan. The other 3 shingle manufacturer's warranties are a 10 year 100% coverage followed by a lifetime prorated period. This means that after 10 years the amount of your coverage starts to drop. Tamko's warranty is for the full 100% for 15 years instead of the standard 10 years. That extra 5 years can make a big difference. Peace of mind for an extra 5 years. We have created a link to the companies website so that you may research them for yourself. The best thing about them is, they don't cost extra. That's right, 5 more years of protection and $0 more out of your pocket. Making Roofs Better!
We are always striving to improve any way that we can to continue to offer you the best possible roof at the best possible price and to give you choices. So now you have 4 shingle choices to choose from. The Roof Doctor, Making Roofs Better!
Warranties are very important on a new roof. Many of our roofs come with LIFETIME warranties. That means that you will never have to pay for a new roof again! We want you to read this page fully before you call us for an estimate. We also carry a $1,000,000 insurance policy. This means that if you hire us to do your roof and anything happens to your house during, or after construction caused by us. You won't have to pay a penny.
A lot of roofing companies offer some of the same products as we do. They shop at some of the same suppliers as we do too. So what makes us different that any of the other roofing companies out there? VALUE. A lot of the money that you spend on your new roof is for the shingle manufacturer to warranty the shingles for the specified amount of time. Most of our roofs come with a LIFETIME warranty. Some of theirs do too. However, in today's tough, competitive economy in Michigan, a lot of roofing companies have turned to undercutting other companies on price just to get the job. Every customer wants the cheapest price right? That is perfectly understandable. A roof is not something that you can buy at the dollar store though. The thing that needs to be kept in mind is VALUE. Value means that you get something significant for the dollars that you spend. We could always be the lowest price out there if we wanted to, but we offer the best value out there. The Roof Doctor is a fully licensed and insured contractor too. Our License number is located at the bottom of every page on this site. So you get the same and in so many ways better piece of mind as you would getting your roof from one of the big, expensive companies, without the big price tag. For legal reasons, I cannot name the competitor, but we recently beat one of the big companies price on a new roof by 50%!!! We saved the homeowner over $5,000 by using us instead of a popular, big company!
A lot of smaller roofing companies have turned to the policy of trying to beat everyone else's price to get jobs. That is the only way that they can get the work. As the consumer, you give things up for that price. In order to give you that price, those companies have to make up the difference somewhere, right? Where do you think they make it up from? Material and labor. They use cheaper roofing materials and try to spend less on labor by getting the job done as quick as possible so that they can still make money on the price that they gave you. This, in many cases, means that your warranty may not even be honored by the manufacturer.
There are certain criteria that need to be met in order for the shingle manufacturer to honor the warranty. Things that cost money. If these cut rate roofing companies did all of these things, they would not be able to offer you that price that they did, or they wouldn't make any money. Which one do you think is more likely? ALL of our roofing installations meet manufacturer warranty requirements. That means that if you use The Roof Doctor for your new roof, your roof will be covered by the manufacturer's warranty and by us!
At The Roof Doctor we just want you to be aware of what you pay for and what you are getting for it. VALUE. Something to consider when shopping for a new roof. At The Roof Doctor, we offer to beat competitor's prices too. There are limitations to how far we are willing to go though. We will only beat a price from a reputable company and only if they are offering you the same thing that we are. A real roof that meets all of the manufacturer's specifications for the warranty. Why pay for a warranty that you can't use, right? In most cases, however, we don't need to beat the competition's price. We offer a lower price to begin with. The Roof Doctor warranties our craftsmanship for 5 years on top of the manufacturer warranty. Anything that may not be covered under your roof's warranty for the first 5 years, we will guarantee ourselves. Once again, that is called value! Call us for a FREE estimate !
