Damaged Shingles

The shingles on your roof play a crucial role in protecting your home from the elements. However, they have a limited lifespan, and over time, exposure to harsh UV rays, temperature changes, and extreme weather conditions can cause them to deteriorate. As they age, they may become brittle or start to curl, break, or crack, which can lead to gaps that allow water to seep in. Scheduling regular roof inspections can help to catch any issues with your shingles before they turn into more significant problems.


Cracked Flashing

Flashing is a thin metal or plastic strip that is placed around chimneys, skylights, and other roof elements to keep water from seeping into your home. If it cracks or comes loose, it can allow water to infiltrate.


Poor Installation

Roofs that were not installed correctly can be prone to leaks. This could be due to unskilled or inexperienced labor or substandard materials. At Big Rapids Roofing, we understand the importance of proper installation to ensure your roof lasts for years to come. Our team consists of skilled and experienced technicians who are trained to provide high-quality roof replacement services.


Clogged Gutters

Gutters are designed to direct water away from the roof, but if they become clogged with leaves, debris, and other material, water can pool on your roof and cause damage. If your gutters are looking worse for wear, it may be time to repair them or install new gutters that can better protect your home.
