Re-Roof: An Alternative Option to ReplacementMay 17, 2023

It’s time for a new roof; now you must decide if you want to tear off and reroof or simply reroof. Tear-off requires the existing roof to be removed. A metal reroof can be a retrofit roof that is placed over your existing roof. This makes metal roofing a great option for a reroof due to its light weight and longevity. There are a few benefits to choosing a reroof:
  1. Faster Install- Contractors can get right to work without taking off the existing roof.
  2. More Affordable- No costs associated with tearing off and disposing of the existing roof.
  3. Rejuvenates the look- We offer over 30 colors to give your building or residence a fresh appearance.
  4. Energy efficiency- The additional roofing layer provides insulation value and can save on energy costs.

What are some considerations?

If the roof deck or attachment substrate is suspect, it should be removed and replaced. The additional roof material layer and strain on the frame and structure could create structural limitations and qualifications.

When should you re-roof?

Reroofing is a great option if your current roof is still in good condition but getting close to the end of its expected lifespan. If your roof has leaks, you will want to address them before you install your new metal roof.

Can you do partial reroofs?

The simple answer is yes. Even though it may save you money in the present, waiting could make it difficult to match the colors of the existing roof in the future. It may not be aesthetically pleasing to have different roof materials.
