If your roof has sustained damage, or just lost its luster with age, re-roofing may be the option for you. Many people believe that when it comes to a new roof, hiring a professional for roof replacement services is the only way to go. What these people do not realize is that re-roofing is a perfectly viable, and much more cost effective way to protect your investment, breathe some life into your existing roof, add a beautiful addition to your home, and increase your home’s value. The professionals at AllStar Roofing will visit your home to access.
Your home’s roof is the largest part of your investment, and a healthy roof can make or break your home’s value. In fact, real estate agents, and savvy home buyers will typically ask about the health of your home’s roof as one of their first questions. Your roof brings character to your home. It’s the largest part and after all, it’s the thing that separates you from the elements outside! Unfortunately, people tend to shy away from getting any non-emergency work done on their roof. It’s a commitment to get roof repairs done, or even full on replacements. Luckily, re-roofing is here as an option for you. Re-roofing is the perfect middle ground and is, sometimes, all you need to get your roof looking and functioning like brand new again!
What is Re-Roofing?
The process of re-roofing involves overlaying new shingles over your older existing ones. Unlike a full on roof replacement, a re-roofing job is not completely taking apart your roof to put on a new one, only reinforcing what you already have. Re-roofing jobs do not strip away the existing shingles, nor the underlayment layer that protects your home from water damage. Since the re-roofing process does not require as many materials or as much labor, it is typically a much faster and much cheaper alternative to a brand new roof.
Is Re-Roofing an Option for Me?
When your shingle roof is damaged and in need of a replacement, you will want to consider all options available to you, and choose the one that’s best for your home. In many cases, your roof may only have minor damages and a simple re-roofing is all you need! Our team of roofing professionals will assess your roof and determine if a re-roofing job is enough, and if it is an option for you. The largest determining factor are the layers of shingles you already have on your roof. In compliance with building codes, a roof can only have two layers of shingles at maximum. After that, your roof will become heavy and can begin to sag, retain unnecessary water, and actually shorten your roof’s lifespan. If your roof only has one layer of shingles with no significant damages, then you may be the perfect candidate for a re-roofing job!
