One of the most costly investments you will make is your roof when it comes to home improvement projects. You can also realize a very healthy return on this investment. A new roof not only resolves any leak issues you may have but also increases curb appeal and can significantly impact your home’s resale value. So if your roof needs a replacement, don’t put it off – get it done today.
When it comes to moving forward and fixing your roof, one big question looms large. Do you re-roof or choose a complete roof replacement? Let’s take a look at both options.
Re-roofing is a quick and less costly option for roof repair. During a re-roofing, a new shingle overlay is installed over top of your work shingles. This restores the look of your roof and covers any existing leaks you may have.
When your roof is completely replaced, the existing shingles are stripped off the roof. A new underlayment of roofing paper is applied to the deck, and new shingles are installed along with drip edge. If damage is found during the process of stripping the shingles, sections of the decking will be replaced at this time.
If you have a home with minor issues or leaks because your roof has reached its end of life, then a re-roof may be the perfect solution for you. Also, if you only have one layer of shingles, a re-roof is a logical course of action. On the other hand, if your roof shows signs of significant water damage or is sagging in place, a complete roof replacement should be done to address those underlying issues.
