Pertaining roofing, to pay no attention a ‘trivial’ leak can be financially exhausting. Just a tiny leak could show you many years of damage, which can lead you to be anxious and stressed about what it’s going to cost you to fix it. It’s a common homeowner misconception that the answer is to replace the whole roof but you should know that a total replacement isn’t the only answer. A re-roofing or resurfacing is an alternate option for homeowners to take into account.
Our clients are delighted to find that they have the option of re-roofing, which is much less expensive than replacing an entire roof and still adds to a home’s value. The quickest way to ensure your roofing’s integrity is to decide to re-roof now.
The Pros of Re-Roofing
- Enhances the cosmetic appearance of your home
- Re-roofing is the fastest way to restore your roof
- Re-roofing does not require extensive cost
- New shingles can lead to a roof that lasts for 10 years or more
- Increases the value of your home
The Cons of Re-Roofing
- Because you are not lifting the current shingles, there is no way to know if any damage exists underneath, such as deck rot
- Re-roofing may not last as long as completely replacing the roof
- Re-roofing can only be done if you have less than two layers of shingles on your roof, you are prohibited in many areas from adding a third layer
- Certain types of roofs, such as metal sheet, are not recommended for re-roofing
If you are considering re-roofing, our team is more than happy to discuss with you on what would work best for you and your budget. We will go over all of the details and the factors that will ultimately affect scheduling and total project costs. It really depends on the design of your roofs. Basic or ordinary designs of roofs tend to be more inexpensive compared to roofs with complex designs. Complex design roofs incur more special things like additional safety harness and equipment for the workers to walk on the roof. Another thing is if your roof has extensive water damage, it can make the cost a little more expensive than expected because the roof should be repaired before the new roof can be put in place.
The approachability to the roof will also affect the price. If ever the truck with the materials cannot access the house, our people will have to manually carry the materials which mean more time spent and this also means that the cost will go up.
When you have skylights, chimneys, and other additional features in your home, the workers have to take care to work around them, leading to an increase in price. Another potential addition to your costs are the skylights or chimneys themselves if they need some repairs. We have the training and experience required to give you the best solution.
