Warning: Steer Clear of Re-Roofing

Roof Repointing: Issues & Prevention

Roof Maintenance: Maintain the Shield
November 14, 2023

Are you thinking about replacing your roof? Hold on a moment! While it might appear to be the ultimate solution to prevent further damage or leaks, there are a loooot of reasons to avoid opting for a re-roof service.

You might think that a new roof would solve all your problems. After all – out with the old, in with the new, right?

Well, not exactly.

The common misconception here is that a fresh layer will automatically get rid of all leaks and damage. However, the issue often lies beneath the surface. Simply masking the problem with a new exterior can lead to more serious, hidden damage over time.

Have you considered the cost?

Replacing an entire roof is undoubtedly a pricey endeavor, ranging from at the very least $5,000 to $10,000 depending on your roof’s size and the materials used. That’s a substantial amount of money that could be allocated more wisely elsewhere.

Safety is another factor that is often overlooked. A new roof doesn’t always equal a safer roof.

There’s always a risk involved when adding weight to your home’s structure, and additional layers can potentially lead to structural issues down the line. So, before you sign that re-roofing contract, it might be worth it to explore other repair options and get a professional’s opinion about the best course of action

Another drawback of re-roofing is its disruptive and inconvenient nature. A typical re-roofing project can span several days, with workers traversing your property, creating noise, and leaving a mess. Depending on safety considerations, you might even need to temporarily relocate during the process.

Arguably, the most significant reason to avoid re-roofing is its environmental impact. Annually, millions of tons of roofing waste end up in landfills, contributing to pollution and consuming valuable space. Opting for a re-roof service only adds to this problem rather than seeking a more sustainable alternative.

So, what’s the alternative?

Consider a roof restoration service. This approach involves repairing any damaged sections of your roof and applying a fresh coat of paint or sealant. Restoring your roof to its former glory.

It’s a more cost-effective option that can prolong your roof’s lifespan by up to 15 years. Additionally, it addresses underlying issues, alleviating concerns about future problems.

In conclusion, while re-roofing may seem like the straightforward and logical fix for a damaged roof, it’s not the optimal choice. It’s not just expensive and inconvenient; it also negatively impacts the environment. Instead, opt for a roof restoration service to save money, time, and contribute positively to our planet. Your wallet and Mother Nature will appreciate it.

They came when they promised (with only one small hitch). Appear to have done a very good job - the on-site team were considerate and professional. BUT the cost was something else. A morning's work for 2 and a half guys without any expensive parts, cost $7900. Seemed like a lot. Hopefully they have fixed the problem.

We had a very good experience with Roof Repairs Perth WA.- Ellis and his crew were professional, polite and friendly. They made a very positive impression. They were quick and efficient, cleaned up after themselves and Ellis communicated very well what they were going to do/doing and what our expectations should be regarding the moss treatment.- we appreciate Josh getting us pushed forward in the schedule when an opening became available. They came in a month ahead of the original appointment and it was greatly appreciated as we had had great difficulty with finding a roofing company to do the required work.- the roof definitely looks in much better shape, getting professionals really does make a difference.

Happy with the work done and the leak onto the overhang was fixed. Passed the first winter test given the amount of rain Perth had.

Great service and support from Josh and the team during a persistent roof leak problem I was having - they came out and ended up fixing it on the spot with a simple tile swap even though they originally were only supposed to give a free quote. Couldn't be happier and will be recommending.
