What Are The Benefits of Re-roofing?

Your roof is one of the most important aspects of your home and any damage can be a disaster.

Keeping your roof in the very best condition is imperative to avoid serious damage or disrepair. Re-roofing is perhaps the quickest and cheapest way to give your roof a facelift and, as well as the functional benefits it can bring, this process will enhance your roof’s appearance, too.

What is re-roofing?

Far cheaper than building a completely new roof, re-roofing involves overlaying a new layer onto an area of a roof that needs replacing. Essentially, it’s rebuilding part of a roof rather than replacing the entire thing.

Placing new shingles over an area that needs some TLC will cost you significantly less than a complete roof replacement which involves more large-scale repairs.

There are a number of situations where re-roofing might be necessary. Your roof may be in a state of disrepair and require significant repairs, for older roofs that have ongoing maintenance, re-roofing may be a cheaper option and if you’re remodelling or renovating your roof, then re-roofing may be appropriate.

Remember, not every roofing project is suitable for re-roofing, but it is certainly something you should be discussing with your roofing contractor.

What are the benefits of re-roofing?

As well as saving you more money than replacing your entire roof, there are a whole host of other benefits of re-roofing.

These include:

  • Giving your roof an expert inspection – usually, homeowners only have their roof properly checked and inspected by an expert if there is a problem. When it comes to re-roofing, you’ll benefit from a roofing specialist giving your roof a thorough review and potentially spotting any serious issues before they arise.
  • Make your home more comfortable with enhanced insulation – particularly helpful for older properties, during the re-roofing process it’s likely that your new roofing layer will include new insulation that will be much better at keeping heat in and bills down.
  • Improve your roof’s aesthetics – another great benefit of re-roofing is that it can give you more control over what your roof looks like. These days, there are a plethora of colours and designs you can choose from for your roof, meaning you can select something that perfectly matches the unique look of your home.
  • Fix any existing defects – as part of the re-roofing process, any existing problems or damage on your roof will be fixed – something that may have gone unnoticed otherwise.
  • Strengthen your roof – adding an extra layer of shingles to your roof will provide it with extra strength, keeping it more secure during extreme weather.
