With a roof overlay, roofers are unable to determine any issues in the decking that require immediate attention. Without taking down the sheathing, you won’t know if you have sufficient underlayment or water damage.
Discover the benefits of investing in a complete tear-off from M&A Roof Home Improvement, your trusted residential roofing expert.
Your roofers will get to have a closer look at your roof’s condition. During a tear-of, they will replace all the components of your roof. This means getting rid of any damaged deck or roof leaks.
A full replacement means your home is watertight for a long time. Your roofing contractor will repair risky areas and replace flashings. It can also make your roof stronger and more resistant to damage from weather extremes and elements.
Keep in mind that roofing shingles are heavy. Stacking them up can cause stress to the rest of your home. The structural integrity of the house can be compromised if it can’t handle the added weight from the additional layer of shingles.
A complete tear-off job will last longer than a roof overlay. This is because a new roof absorbs less heat than a layered roof. Too much heat can cause shingles to curl and become brittle.
Your new roof can be your property’s selling point. Consider a complete replacement if you’re thinking of selling your home soon.
