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.
