Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How long does a re-roofing project usually take to complete?

Generally, the duration of a re-roofing project varies depending on the size of your home, the complexity of the roof installation and weather conditions in the Lower Mainland.

Depending on the project scope, on average it takes under a week, while we are normally faster in the 3-5 days range.

What factors can affect the cost of a re-roofing project?

What roofing materials are available for re-roofing projects?

Common roofing materials for re-roofing include asphalt shingles, metal, wood shakes, slate, and tile. Each material has its advantages and cost considerations. You can consult Marty to find a match that works for your roofing needs in the Lower Mainland.

At BulletpRoof Roof Systems, we build residential sloped roof systems which include the visible shingles on top and all of the accessories that make up the rest of the roof's layers. Which together helps to guarantee your roof will ventilate, insulate and protect your home properly for many years to come.

An acceptable roofing material for your re-roofing project can be selected based on the following factors:

  • Size and complexity of your existing roof installation. 
  • Structural integrity of your home. Can your home handle the weight and additional stress of a different roofing material installation? Like if slate tile is chosen, an engineer and framing crew will have build support for your home prior to installation 
  • Chosen roofing contractor's material specialization. Do they have the training and experience to properly install your new roof?  
  • Homeowner's budget. What is the most cost-effective roofing solution?

When Should I Consider Re-Roofing an Old Roof

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:

  • Faded, damaged, cracked and/or missing shingles
  • Moss/algae is spreading and/or pushing under the shingles
  • Shingles granules accumulating around gutter downspouts
  • And so on 

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.  

Why You Should Avoid Re-Roofing Over the Existing Roof?

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.      

Benefits of Re-Roofing over Roof Repairs

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:

Comprehensive Solution

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.

Increased Lifespan

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.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency and Home Value

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.
