Roof replacement is not something to take casually, nor is it a problem that should be delayed. If your roof fails, the water can destroy the inside of your home. Starting from the attic insulation and going all the way through the basement. One of the most disastrous problems in a house is a broken roof.
If you choose to re-roof you need to think about the materials too. This choice depends on your location and your taste. In some regions, metal roofing is a popular preference due to its fire resistance, while in other areas the prevailing style is asphalt shingles.
Palmetto Roofers will help you to make the right choice. Our experienced technicians can assist you in the choosing process.
It was once common to lay a new shingle roof over the preexisting layer but, this is no longer allowed in some provinces, in this case, a complete tear-off of the previous roofing is the ideal.
Even where layering is permitted, using a new layer of shingles over the old ones should be thoroughly studied because it can cause some problems such as increasing the weight. Installing a second layer can make your roof twice as heavy and, this can affect your roof negatively, mainly older houses.
To be sure if you need re-roofing, you should review your home repair records and observe how long ago the roof was replaced or reshingled. If you have a droopy or sagging roof, you surely need replacing before additional damage happens to your home.
