Roof Replacement
Vs
Reroof

Reroofing is frequently mistaken for roof replacement, even among professionals. However, reroofing involves adding another layer of shingles to an existing roof, primarily to reduce costs in waste, disposal, and labor. We don't offer this service due to concerns about quality assurance. Since the existing roof isn't removed, underlying issues with shingles or decking may go unaddressed. Additionally, our preferred shingle manufacturer, CertainTeeed, doesn't warrant any reroof work.

Do I Need to Replace my Roof?

The optimal time for roof replacement is when it approaches the end of its lifespan. A 3-tab shingle roof lasts 15-20 years, while a dimensional roof can endure 25-30 years. However, waiting too long can lead to increased risks of leaks or damage to the roof decking, potentially raising replacement costs. Watch for signs like excessive granule loss from shingles, seen as black spots or granules in gutters or downspouts, which can cause clogging. If neighbors are replacing their roofs, it may indicate similar build timelines. Other signs include cracked, curled, or missing shingles, and a sunken or wavy roof appearance which may suggest compromised decking below.

If your roof only has damage in a small area a repair might be right for you. 

Benefits of a Roof Replacement

A roof replacement offers several benefits to homeowners. Modern roofing materials improve insulation, potentially reducing utility costs. A new roof enhances a home's aesthetic appeal, increasing its overall value in the housing market. Plus, transferrable warranties add extra coverage and property value. Overall, investing in a new roof offers immediate protection and energy efficiency, along with long-term advantages like increased property value and reduced maintenance.
