Have you been noticing a lot of damage to your roof? Homes are usually the biggest investment of the homeowners. Not just that, but your is home is your place of refuge, where you can relax and unwind from all your worries. Nobody wants a damaged house to come back to. Any roof, however well installed will start to show signs of wear and damage as the years pass on. If the homeowner keeps their roof well maintained and keeps repairing any damages happening over time their roof can last a long while. But small damages, often ignored, keeps adding up and at the end of the day, the cumulative impact of the damage is such that it becomes hazardous to live under your roof.
Thus, 1st PRIORITY ROOFING strongly advises regular roof inspections and repair of any damage observed. Even the well-maintained roof will over time need to be replaced as it is constantly taking beatings from the elements. If the damage becomes too much it is advisable to get your roof replaced instead of repairing it or re-roofing above it.
Should I go for Re-roofing or Roof Replacement?
Re-roofing refers to the process of installing a new roof cover over the damaged parts of the previously damaged roof without removing parts of the old roof. Whereas, roof replacement refers to the removal of old damaged roof entirely and installing a new roof in its place. The decision to replace your roof or re-roofing it depends on various factors. While the local building codes narrow down the option in a lot of cases – most local codes do not allow more than two roof coverings on the same building, there is still a host of factors to consider even if you have one roof.
Re-roofing can be a good idea if your roof is nearing its service age but is in pretty good condition i.e. there are only a few if any damages to the roof like leakages, discoloration, etc. But if there is a serious case of microbial growth or rotting wood or sagging roofing deck it is advisable to get your roof replaced as re-roofing will only cover up the problem under your new roof instead of removing the damaged part of your roof to control the spreading of your damage. It is also not advisable to re-roof only a part of your roof as it causes your roof to have a varying thickness which can be noticeable even to an untrained eye.
The right roofing contractor
Whether re-roofing or doing roof replacement it is very important that you hire the right roofing contractor. If improperly done or if the deck of the roof is exposed too long to the elements of nature it can absorb moisture and then cause havoc on the new roof installed. If the moisture in the deck is trapped within your new roof it can cause problems like mold and mildew growth, buckling shingles, curling shingles, discoloration of walls, etc.
Your roofing contractor should also ensure proper ventilation channels in your home so there are no future problems caused by any trapped moisture in your roof. It is also of prime importance that your roof is properly sealed to avoid the problems of water leakage and ice damming (during the winters). Our contractors at 1st PRIORITY ROOFING are highly skilled experts who are licensed and fully insured. We work to fulfill all your roofing requirements, with your satisfaction being our FIRST PRIORITY.
While no homeowner wants to live in a damaged or worn off roof, the cost is usually a limitation for them. That is where the homeowner’s insurance comes into play.
There are two types of damages as per the insurance companies:
This refers to those type of damage which hamper the roof’s capability of shedding water or any damages which reduce the expected service life of your roof.
Cosmetic Damages refer to any damages which are not covered under functional damages. These damages usually only diminish the aesthetic appeal of your house.
While insurance doesn’t usually cover any cosmetic damages, if you are thinking of roof replacement, there must usually be a considerable amount of functional damage to your roof. Though these damages are to be covered by your insurance, insurance adjusters often miss out on subtle roof damages in your home which would mean an additional cost to you beyond your insurance coverage.
