Repairs are ideal for minor roofing problems, such as worn-out flashing and pitch pockets. However, if the problem is extensive, getting repairs may not be your most cost-effective option. A skilled roofing contractor can identify the source of the issue or leak accurately and perform necessary repairs. It’s essential to work with experienced professionals because misdiagnosis of the problem can lead to multiple repairs, costing you more in the long run.
Sometimes, it’s possible to install a new roofing system over the old one. It is an alternative approach to roof replacement and can save you from removal costs. Roof recovery also helps reduce the refuse materials that end up in landfills.
For best results, your contractor should address any issue within the system before performing the recovery. They should especially deal with moisture-related issues because trapped water will eventually cause issues in your recovered roof. If moisture is present in at least 30% of the roof area, it is still more practical to get a total roof replacement.
Expect your contractor to recommend a replacement if your roof is beyond repair. Replacement is ideal if there is a large amount of moisture below the roof’s membrane or significant deck deterioration. You want to consider a replacement of your existing roof no longer offers protection against high winds and fire. Sometimes, local building codes also require tear-offs.
