THE UPS AND DOWNS OF RE-ROOFING YOUR HOME
2
  • When you begin to have problems with your roof,
    such as leaks or lost shingle, it can be easy to
    panic and immediately start worrying about the
    cost of having it repaired. You may even be
    confused about the term re-roofing and need
    some clarification before you begin calling your
    local roofing experts.
  • Read on to know more about re-roofing along with
    its pros and cons
  • What does the term re-roofing mean?
  • Re-roofing applies only to those homes with one
    or more layers of existing shingles, and then
    another layer is added on top. When all the old
    shingle is removed from a roof, this is referred
    to as a tear off.

  • Should you re-roof your home?
  • Its not always cut and dried when it comes to
    re-roofing, so here are a few of the pros and
    cons for you to consider
  • Pros
  • Its simpler
  • The contractor simply climbs up onto your roof
    and puts new shingle over whats already there,
    instead of ripping and tearing off all the
    existing shingle.

  • Its cheaper
  • Because re-roofing is more straightforward, the
    labor costs will be less.
  • Cons
  • Roofing detects may be covered over
  • If the old shingle is removed, any defects will
    be easier to spot and repair, which may end up
    saving you time and money later down the line.
  • If the old shingle is removed, any defects will
    be easier to spot and repair, which may end up
    saving you time and money later down the line.

  • Layered shingles can reduce the life expectancy
    of a roof
  • While some may claim that a roof with several
    layers of shingle will last a long time and not
    cause you any problems, that may not always be
    true. If the shingle beneath the newest layer is
    not flat, then your new shingles may not last and
    will heat up more which can cause the layers to
    break down quicker. It is sometimes said that the
    lifespan of layered shingles roofs is reduced by
    up to 40.
  • Other points to consider
  • Its important to research local building codes
    when youre thinking about re-roofing as opposed
    to having a new roof fitted, as many
    municipalities have building and fire codes that
    place restrictions upon layered shingle.

6
  • Think about how your roof will look if you keep
    adding to the layers of shingle will it look
    lumpy over time, and could this reduce the
    overall aesthetic effect of your property? If
    youre looking to sell your property at some
    point, a re-roofed property may deter some
    prospective buyers.
  • For more detailed advice and guidance about
    re-roofing your home, talk to your local roofing
    experts. They will help you make a decision that
    will take your budget into account, while
    ensuring that your home remains safe.
