See our re-roofing warranty coverage below:
Shingle warranties like this are available too:
Re-roofing becomes neccessary once your current roof shows signs of extensive damage or when it reaches 20 years of age, whichever comes first.
Why is 20 years of age important?
Reason being, the shingles may visibly look good. Though underlying issues under the shingles are rapidly worsening the longer they are left alone because the shingles are actually letting more of the elements in than it is able to repel anymore.
Signs of Damage to keep an eye out for:
This means regardless of repairs made to visible wear and tear, and minor leaks there are still multiple other leaks damaging your home at the same time. The solution is to re-roof, remove and replacing the entire old roof and addressing all underlying roofing issues with the roof at that time.
Homeowners are often under the notion that adding another layer over the existing roofing makes it last longer, and with every additional layer it extends your roof's lifespan even more.
We find that roofing contractors sell this by telling people it is cheaper than a true re-roof because they can skip tearing off the old shingles and pass on the savings. While hiding the fact that you'll need pay an arm and leg later to get fixed.
Not true, not even in the slightest. It's bad practice.
There are 2 good reasons why you can't trust a layered re-roof to protect your home.
1 - Allowing Underlying Issues to Worsen
When you're due for re-roofing, you're existing roof is letting more water into your home than it is repelling. Resulting in underlying issues to worsen with time.
This is because the shingles may still look good, but are continually causing damage to your home and family's health.
Why? Where the shingles used to remain cool and dry, insulating and repelling water. Now they retain water and allow heat into your home, trapping both under the shingles. Promoting moss/algae/rot/mold to eat away at your home and damage your family's health.
2 - Layering, Rapidly Ages the New Re-Roof and Worsens All Underlying Issues of the Existing Roof
Installing new shingles over the existing shingles will cause the new re-roof to prematurely age and rapidly worsen underlying issues. Meaning you'll need to re-roof every 5-10 years, pay higher utility bills, receive no warranty coverage for repairs, etc.
Why does adding a shingle layer or two do this? The reason is because the new re-roof will insulate the heat, and repel the water through the bumps and into existing layers below. This traps it in these layers, damaging the entire roof in the process.
For these reasons, we recommend to not layer, always install only one layer and remove the existing roofing before any new installation takes place. Trust us, less is more, one layer is all you need because it will outperform and outlast any number of layers.
Opting for a re roof instead of repairing an old roof offers several advantages that contribute to the long-term health and value of your property.
Here's why a roof replacement is often the better choice:
Repairing an old roof might seem like a cost-effective solution in the short term, but it often addresses only specific issues while leaving underlying problems untouched. Over time, these hidden issues can resurface and lead to further damage. Roof replacement, on the other hand, provides a comprehensive solution by addressing all existing problems, including hidden structural issues, leaks, and weakened materials. This holistic approach ensures that your new roof is built on a solid foundation and is less likely to face recurring problems.
Old roofs tend to have a limited remaining lifespan, even after repairs. Constantly patching up an aging roof can become a cycle of ongoing expenses. Roof replacement offers a fresh start with a brand-new roofing system that can last for decades, depending on the materials used. This not only provides peace of mind but also eliminates the need for frequent repairs, saving you money in the long run.
An old roof may lack proper insulation and energy-efficient features, causing your energy bills to rise due to heat loss or inefficient cooling. A roof replacement allows you to choose modern roofing materials with better insulation properties, improving your home's energy efficiency and reducing utility costs. Additionally, a new roof enhances the curb appeal of your property and boosts its resale value. Potential buyers are more likely to be attracted to a home with a newly replaced roof, as it signifies a well-maintained and protected property.
Additional benefits to consider, include extended warranty coverage, and improved shingle technology making it lighter, more durable and lower maintenance.
