I’m getting a new roof Monday morning. Installed in one day. 25 square, whatever that means. Thunder Guard system life time warranty. Check it out. Rubber singles.

Needless to say, I'm adding extra vents for the bathrooms, and the Thunder Guard adds a drip edge vent system. Pretty cool. 7600 bucks 2350 sg foot home and I'm done. The roof warranty is transferable, and many insurance brokers give discounts.

I can not find how long the warrantee is I can not find where it is transferable.
This sounds to me to cost about 3 times the cost of regular 25 year shingles .
Most people do not stay in their home long enough to wear out the first set of shingles .
I wonder is it really a sound investment when you on average be moving in less then 15 years.
I know in my case I would not be going to that expense .
Others might disagree.

Why do people always find negative things to say...Chuck is excited about this product, you can tell that in his post. I think thats great. If someone has some news they are excited about and you don't agree with it...don't try to kill their enthusiasm...stay silent. Please.

You say you can't find about the warranty...you must not have read the link given by chuck...its plastered all over that product's website saying "LIFETIME" ![icon_rolleyes.gif](upload://iqxt7ABYC2TEBomNkCmZARIrQr6.gif)

Chuck,


Thanks for the link. I will replacing my roof as soon as the idiocy dies down here in NW florida after Hurricane Dennis. They are charging alot more than 7500 for a home that size and they are using 25-30 year shingles. Lot of gouging going on. I may look into this product further.

All I can say is that I have researched this roof for over 6 months and found the best roof for the money. A 30 year shingle will only last 15 years in Michigan if your lucky, so a lifetime non prorated roof is the way to go. My neighbor had the same roof installed for 11,000 bucks, so I say I’m doing good. Mr Roof is the best roofers in Michigan hands down.


Again, thanks Dan and Doug.

Roy, living in Canada you should know that a 25 year shingle means nothing.

Any special prep work involved with this product and your existing deck and framing?

Paul,


there is a short video at the link. The roofers do everything including hauling off the old roofing material. Repair any sheathing or rotted wood that needs to be fixed. Most roofers here won’t do that. They strip the roof off, tell you that you need to hire a carpenter and call them when you get the wood replaced, and that’s the good honest roofers. The rest just shingle over holes, rotted wood, delaminating plywood, etc.

Paul, No special preparing. I’ll do my best between work to take pictures of the work. One thing that impressed me was they saw cut new flashing on the chimney, that’s big in winter climates.


Life time guaranteed warranty! They do have to come out once every 2 years I believe to maintain warranty. Okay.....thanks for coming out.

From what I have heard this is the shingle for Florida. It is definitely the wave of the future.

Thanks for the link, Chuck. I’m going to need a new roof on another house we just bought in the next few years. I’ll check them out.


Do you know if they work this far north?

I'd be interested in seeing the progress pictures, too.

I disagree with you.


You put up 15-20 year shingles and decide to move in 15 years, so, now what do you do? The inspector comes in and says" roof near end of life" and you are negotiating with the buyer as to who is paying for the new roof. Seems a whole lot better to put up the good stuff and not have to worry about when you do move.


Just my 12.5 cents

Just my usual 12.5 cents

I still looked again and can not find how long the roof is good for .


Life time is how long?

If it is so good why can I not find it being installed some place else in North America

If any material used on a roof has a “true” transferable warranty, the argument with moving is a moot point as the warranty should be used as a positive selling point.


Any good material and proper installation on any repair in a home could and should be used as a positive selling point. Money is not wasted on proper installation and good material.

If nothing else it give one, peace of mind and let us not forget "bragging rights". ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

Great minds think alike I see. I agree with all of reasons stated above.


Roy, They put the life of the shingle at about 70 years. I'll be dead and gone long before that. This roof won't have to be changed until my 7 year old turns 77. ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) Up until that time they will fix anything that goes wrong.....

I wonder why they do not put that on their web site or am I just not looking in the correct spot.

Rubber shingles, that are exclusive to Mr Roof, no where else in the country that I know of has these to install. Flexible,

Underlayment is also a rubberized product, like having a extra roof,

The drip edge is massive. This drip edge goes on all the guttered eaves. The drip edge is also a vent. They cut about 1 inch off the edge of the sheathing to install the edge.

At 1:30pm they were finished and cleaned everything up. We are very happy the roof looks great.
