A roof is designed to protect the structure of your property including its assets from the elements of mother nature. Detroit Roofing and More are the industry leaders in Michigan due to our thorough approach and attention to detail when we are installing roofs for each of our clients. We work with both residential and commercial clients to meet all their roofing installation needs including gutter and downspout installation as well as a range of different kinds of roofs. Here we will explain the different kinds of roofing installations and how our company professionally install each of them.
For our residential clients, we provide complete roofing installations for new builds as well as removal and replacement of existing roofs when this is required. Being in the building industry we are familiar in working alongside other trades people to ensure that the roofing requirements are met. We believe that communication with other trades people is key to successfully installing a roof as failure to communicate can see errors occur if there are any changes in plans that we are unaware of.
Commercial roofing is quite similar to residential roofing, only on a much larger scale and often with different kinds of materials. Our team still need to ensure that the roof trusses are correct and sufficient to attach the roofing to, as well as to ensure that each of the roofing sheets are aligned correctly to ensure that the roof will be water tight. We understand commercial operations often have high volumes of valuable goods stored within them, which is why we ensure that the care and precision does not alter in our works regardless of the size of the project.
Of course a roof is required to keep the rain out of your property, but it also needs guttering to help direct the flow of water to a drainage point so that your property is not surrounded by mud and puddles each time a rainfall occurs. Our team are skilled in understanding drainage requirements of both residential and commercial roofing and are able to fit the roofing with guttering suitable to the property. We understand that the fall of the roof and valleys play a part in the areas that water is most likely to build up and ensure that there are adequate downspouts fitted to the correct size of guttering to help protect our clients properties.
Types of Roofs
There are such a wide range of roofing styles and materials that can be used in a range of different ways. Our team are skilled and experienced in using most of these, but primarily the most popular roofing types are gable and hip in a range of different varieties. These are the kind of roof that you would picture when you hear the word roof. There are also a range of materials available for roofing, which include metal sheets, asphalt shingles, slate, clay tiles and a range of others.
