Homeowners are given the option to re-roof their damaged asphalt shingles or replace the entire roof. Roofing experts typically prefer the latter as it guarantees fewer expenses in repairs over time. However, re-roofing is still a popular choice because it saves time and money and it’s particularly useful if there isn’t severe damage and the roof isn’t too old.
Masters Roofing, your trusted general contractor, discusses the three factors you should consider before proceeding with a re-roof.
Your Roofing Materials
Re-roofing means mixing old roof materials with new ones, and it could be obvious on the roof exterior. That’s why you should consider the availability of the roof material that’s completely identical with what you have on your roof. Some homeowners buy a surplus of the same material when they get a new roof, so they have the material on hand should they need it.
If your area is prone to rainfall, storm and snow, you should have a total roof replacement instead. It can safeguard your home better against tough weather for the coming seasons. You’ll also spend less on roof repairs in the long haul. Treat your new roof to an adequate maintenance plan for better and longer lasting performance.
Your Time Frame
Do you have a vacation planned or an out-of-town business trip right when your roof shows signs of damage? Re-roofing is a great patch solution, but it doesn’t last. It could fortify your home long enough for your return but it would be wise to plan your replacement as soon as you get back if your roof suffered some serious damage prior to the re-roofing.
