If you hire a trusted roofing and home repair services contractor at NC Rebuild, Inc. to do a full replacement, we’ll make sure to do it right from the get-go. This means stripping off each and every material from your current roofing system and installing a new one completely. But if you’re considering to go for the less expensive route and just have a reroofing, it can still be possible depending on the condition of your roof, but we wouldn’t really recommend it.
Deciding to keep your roof underlayment intact, for instance, won’t guarantee your whole roofing system is fully protected from the natural elements, and you may end up with issues that won’t come to light until years later when the damage has already been great.
A Simple Reroofing Won’t Really Suffice
Adding just one new layer on your existing roofing system doesn’t really solve the problem; it’s just covering it. While most problems are usually spotted before the shingles are torn off, there are still a few occasions when rot or roof sag isn’t easy to find. This would usually be found with a full replacement, but Since you’re basically just applying a new layer, you won’t be able to check the condition of your roofing deck to know for sure.
It Can Void Your Warranty
A condition that’s typically set by most roofing manufacturers is that a new layer of underlayment must be installed first before adding a new layer of their shingles. This means hiring a professional roofing and fiber cement siding repair contractor to do it for you; if you hire a subpar contractor or even decide to DIY the project, you’ll end up voiding the warranty as well as a less-than-satisfactory roofing replacement.
Why Should You Invest in a Full Replacement?
A full roof replacement is recommended if you find several problems on your current roofing system. To keep your home safe and secure, especially if your roof is already in very bad condition, a total tear-off and replacement is your best solution.
