Re-roofing Contractor

Having a “minor” leak can become a complete disaster if left unchecked. A minor leak might reveal years of damage, resulting in stress and anxiety about how much it can cost to fix the problem. Some homeowners decide on just to replace the whole roof of their homes to fix the problem but this kind of solution is not the only plan of action that can be taken. Homeowners can consider re-roofing or re-surfacing instead of a pricey replacement.

Re-roofing, and not replacing the entire roof takes away the stress of major costs, and at the same time increases the value of a home. Re-roof now and save yourself the hassle of expenses down the road and secure your roof’s integrity.

The Pros of Re-Roofing

  • 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
  • Enhances the cosmetic appearance of your home
  • Increases the value of your home

The Cons of Re-Roofing

  • Certain types of roofs, such as metal sheet, are not recommended for re-roofing
  • 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
  • Re-roofing may not last as long as completely replacing the roof
  • Because you are not lifting the current shingles, there is no way to know if any damage exists underneath, such as deck rot

We are more than happy to go over your options when it comes to re-roofing. We can layout all of the things that might increase the manpower costs and the time spent. Steep sloped roofs or roofs with complex designs will increase the cost because it requires special equipment such as safety harnesses. The cost will be affected by your extensively damaged roof because it will have to be repaired before installing the new roof.

One of the factors that will impact the cost is roof accessibility. One concrete example of this is if the site is inaccessible to our vehicles. This will lead to our personnel manually unloading the building materials and tools and bringing it to the site by hand, which will increase the time used and in turn increase the overall cost of the project.

Skylights or chimneys in your home will cause the price of the project to increase as our workers will have to work around them. Also, if you want us to repair the flashing around these features, it will increase the cost. All of our roofing teams have the experience and know-how on how to handle any situation in an efficient manner.
