For high-quality residential roof replacement in North Carolina, you can trust the experienced team at Premiere Roofing & Gutters. We take pride in our craftsmanship because we know that you rely on your roof to protect your family, your possessions, and your most valuable investment—your home.

“Garron and his team are awesome! They completely tore my old roof off and put a new one on in one day. The office manager Amber is amazing, very responsive to text and calls and always checked in with times and answered any questions I had. The roof and gutter guards look amazing! I’d definitely recommend premiere roofing and gutters to anyone.”

In North Carolina, shingle roofs are among the most popular for homeowners, with good reason. Shingles are affordable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. However, to meet the needs of our varied clientele, Premiere Roofing & Gutters is pleased to work on all types of residential roof installations including metal, cedar shake, and tile roofs. Our entire team has in-depth experience and expertise with all kinds of roofing materials so you can trust in the quality of our work as well as our recommendations to help you achieve your desired outcome.


When properly installed, a roof can last for a long time, decades in fact. However, they can sustain damage over the years that can shorten their expected lifespan. At Premiere Roofing & Gutters, we’ll carefully evaluate your roof to determine whether the time has come to replace it.

The following are some indicators that it’s time to schedule residential roofing replacement for your shingle roof:

  • Shingle roof is 20 to 25 years or older
  • Multiple shingles are curling at the edges or are otherwise damaged
  • Significant granule loss from the shingles
  • Areas of missing shingles

If you have a metal roof, watch out for these signs:

  • Metal roof is 40 years or older
  • Leaks, tears, gouges, or punctures have formed
  • There are loose nails, lifted fasteners, or signs of corrosion/rust
  • Finish coating is wearing away from the panels

A tile roof may need to be replaced if any of the following are true:

  • Tile roof is 50 years or older
  • Tiles are chipped or cracked
  • Tiles have been dislodged and/or are missing
  • Corrosion on the steel vents and flashing, causing leaks in the underlayment
  • Water stains visible under the eaves

Cedar shake is a beautiful material for a home roof, yet it too will eventually require replacement. Give us a call if you’ve noticed any of the following issues with your cedar shake roof:

  • Cedar shake roof is 20 to 40 years or older
  • Shakes are cupping, curling, or split
  • Shakes are rotting or covered in moss or algae
  • Multiple missing or damaged shakes

If you aren’t sure whether your roof needs to be replaced, our expert roofers will be happy to inspect it for you and provide customized recommendations.


The specific process to replace a residential roof can vary somewhat, depending on the type of roof you have. In general, however, it begins with our comprehensive evaluation. We’ll precisely measure your roof and identify existing problems to develop an accurate estimate for you.

Once you give us the go-ahead, our roofers will tear off the existing roof, along with damaged flashing and drip edging. Then, we’ll make any needed repairs and install new plywood sheathing if necessary. Next, we will install any other required components, such as asphalt roofing paper, metal drip edging, and flashing to protect the home from leaks.

Then comes time to install the new roofing material. Our roofers follow all applicable building codes and best practices to ensure a high-quality replacement that will last for many years to come.

Finally, we’ll ensure that your property is thoroughly cleaned of all debris and removed from your property. We’ll also do a final inspection of the roof to ensure it meets our rigorous standards. And of course, we will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have about your brand-new roof.
