This home in Houston, Texas needed a full roof replacement, as the shingles were severely worn, there was rotten decking near the chimney due to a roof leak, and a few shingle tabs were pushed up by protruding nail heads. Repairing the roof would not have been a cost-effective solution, as it would have involved replacing significant portions of the shingles, and the rest of the roof would not have lasted long enough to justify the labor and expense. Additionally, repairing and replacing shingles in so many areas would have given the roof an unsightly "patchy" look, as new shingles would not have matched the old ones.
Our customer chose GAF Royal Sovereign shingles, in the color "Weathered Gray". As you can see in the photos, we painted the exhaust vents and pipe flashings on the roof to match the new shingles, and to prevent corrosion.
