If you are considering a roof replacement for your home, consider roof re-roofing as an alternative to a total roof replacement. Even if a full roof replacement is an option, re-roofing can often go much quicker and be less expensive than a total roof replacement. In fact, it is usually cheaper to perform a re-roof than it is to have a completely new roof installed because the re-roof is essentially just like a layer of new shingle. There are three main advantages to roof re-roofing. The first is that it will help to extend the life of your roof by making it stronger and more resistant to further damage from inclement weather. In addition, it will also make your home look better because the newer the layer of shingling the better the overall appearance.Do you want to learn more? Visit Plano Roof Replacement
Once a layer of fresh shingle has been applied to your roof, it is a good idea to have a roof replacement or a thorough re-roof installation performed. Doing this before the re-roof is put in place, will allow the replacement team to work the shingle rows back into position so that they line up perfectly with the old row of shingled. This will also help prevent leaks under the shingle layer because the water will be directed away from the base of the roofing system. Lastly, you will have an easier time replacing the roofing system because it will be easier to identify where the wire was pre-installed and reconnect it without damaging the underlying shingle row. Having an established re-roof in place will also help to protect the roof from future leaks and other types of damage.
When choosing the roofing company for your roof replacement project, be sure to ask if either the replacement shingles or the re-roof underlayment is made from rubber or plastic. Rubber has been proven to be more durable under heavy use and long periods of exposure to weather and moisture. Plastic, on the other hand, tends to deteriorate more quickly especially under severe weather conditions. Most roofing companies prefer to use a combination of both because it helps to ease the construction work load and prevent premature roofing failures due to poor installation techniques.
