At some point in many people’s lives there comes a time when they need to re-roof their home or business. With some shingles only being guaranteed for 20 years, sometimes this can occur multiple times. Perdomo Roofing & Sheetmetal, LLC is there for you when you come to this point in your life.
Do I Need to Re-roof?
A roof needs to be completely replaced if there is leaks, wood warping, etc. This happens when the roof is worn or damaged and the vapor barrier is broken, allowing water to seep into your home or business. Wind damage can also tear off layers of roofing resulting in the need to totally replace the roof. Shoddy patch jobs instead of roof replacement often leads to very extensive damages and can cost a lot more in the long term.
Re-roofing can be a big job, however if well planned, the impact it has on your life can be minimized. A project can be planned in the off or slow season for your business or when you are on vacation or similar. There are also the following questions that need to be asked:
What are my roofing options?
Some roof types might be better for the style of your house than others. Shingles come in many different shapes and styles. Metal roofs also come in a variety of colors. Shingles have varying warranties, with the least expensive short term option being a 20 year asphalt shingle roof.
What type of roof is the right one for me?
While cost is a concern with any roofing project, it is important to weigh the long and short term benefits of all your roofing options. While a 20 year shingle roof might be cheaper in the short term, it is going to need replacing a lot quicker than a metal roof with a 45 year warranty.
Does the underlying roof have to be removed?
If you have two layers of shingles on your roof, you will likely need to have some removed before another roof can be put down.
A licensed and insured roofing expert from Perdomo Roofing & Sheetmetal, LLC can help you make these important decisions so that you get the perfect roof for your home or business with an exceptional guarantee on all parts and labor.
Replace Before Major Issues
It pays to know how much life you have left in your roof. Unless your home is new or you happen to remember when it was re-roofed, it can be hard to know when the roof was installed. Perdomo Roofing & Sheetmetal, LLC can assess your roof and let you know how much longevity you have left in your roof as well as discuss options for prolonging the remaining life of the roof. Knowing where you stand with your roof also gives you time to prepare financially for a new roof. You also have the option of replacing the roof before any actual leaks occur, thus preventing damage to the main structure and your belongings.
In the case of some older homes, asbestos roofing may be present. This requires more care and precaution than re-roofing other homes. Because asbestos has been found to be harmful to humans, you will likely have to vacate your home or business while the roof is removed and re-roofed. Asbestos roofs can be considered a liability and absolutely must be removed by a professional roofing contractor to avoid health hazards.
