What Is a Roof Replacement?

Replacing a roof entails the complete removal of the existing roof materials followed by the installation of new roofing materials. 

This approach is necessary when the existing roof is extensively damaged, deteriorated, or nearing the end of its lifespan. 

While more costly and labor-intensive than re-roofing, roof replacement offers long-term benefits in terms of durability, performance, and peace of mind.

Pros and Cons of a Roof Replacement

Pros:
– Roof replacement addresses underlying issues, provides an opportunity to upgrade roofing materials, and ensures the structural integrity of the roof.

– With proper installation and maintenance, a new roof can offer decades of protection and performance.
-The result is a brand new roof, which brings benefits of durability, longevity, and curb appeal.
Cons:
– Roof replacement involves higher upfront costs due to labor, materials, and disposal expenses.
– The process of replacing a roof takes longer than alternative options like re-roofing. This could cause temporary disruption to daily activities.

Roof Replacement FAQs

-There are numerous signs to look for when considering replacing a roof. The age of the roof may be the biggest factor. If an older roof is showing signs of wear and tear, it’s likely time for a new one.
-Remodeling your home. If you are updating your home, a roof can look mismatched or outdated if you stick with the old materials.
-With no shortage of major weather in our area, storm damage is often a factor we see, and sometimes it’s significant enough to necessitate a roof replacement.
-V-shaped metal channels known as a roof valley can rust and create an opportunity for water to leak into your home. Rusted roof valleys often mean a new roof is needed.
-Check the attic. Do you see daylight through roof boards? Sagging, moss, mold or fungi around the roof? It’s time to seek professional services if any of these issues are present.
-Shingles should lie flat, but if they are curling, buckled or damaged, delaying replacement may damage your home.

Replacing a roof involves the complete removal of existing materials and replacing them with new materials. Re-roofing refers to the process of applying a new layer of roofing materials over the layer that already exists.

Amherst Roofing Contractors recommends several things to think about when deciding. To start, the condition of the existing roof needs to be evaluated. This will largely dictate whether alternative options like re-roofing can even be an option. If the existing roof materials are deteriorated, then replacing the roof is the only way to go. Next, consider your budget. There are many different roofing materials to choose from and they vary widely in cost. Finally, consider the existing structure and whether it can support the new roof that you have in mind.
