Back to School – Reroofing 101

If you feel left out of that back to school feeling, there’s no need to worry! Guardian Roofs understands your fear of missing out and is fixing the situation by bringing you a crash course in reroofing. It might not beat the feeling of strolling back into school with new notebooks and a fresh new outfit, but that’s okay! To really mirror the back to school feeling, we’re starting things off with a pop quiz! Class is back in session so good luck.

Q: How is a reroof different than a new roof?

A: A reroof is when a professional roofing company installs a new roof over the top of your existing roof. This can shorten the time it takes to complete the roofing job and can also decrease the overall cost of the job. A new roof is when the old roofing materials are completely ripped off and then an entirely new roof is laid.

Q: What are the signs that you might need a reroof?

A: There are a few reasons you might need a reroof. First of all, if you notice missing shingles on your roof or see a bald patch, it means it’s time for a reroof or at the very least, a roof repair. If you notice shingles or pieces of shingles in your yard, that’s another sign that you should call a professional roofing company. Finally, it’s important to know when your roof was installed so you can check and see if you’re nearing the end of its lifespan.

Q: Are all roofs eligible for reroofing?

A: Unfortunately, no, not all roofs can be reroofed. Sometimes the roof is too old or is too deteriorated for reroofing to be eligible. Another reason why reroofing might not be possible is if you are changing the roofing materials on your home.

Q: What happens if a roof cannot be reroofed?

A: If your roof cannot be reroofed, that’s okay! It just means that you will need a completely new roof installed instead. While that can be more costly, it gives you the opportunity to change roofing materials or styles and will last longer than a reroof.
