The Most Commonly Asked Questions about Roofing Replacement

Roof replacement is a complex process, so it's natural for homeowners to have many questions about it. Our team of roofing specialists answer some of the most commonly asked questions that we have heard from our clients to help you better understand your roofing replacement needs.

FAQ Roofing Replacement

Does My Roof Need to Be Replaced?

The answer to this question depends on the condition of your existing roof. If your roof is relatively new, and the current problem can be fixed easily and affordably, then you can have your roof replaced later. If your roof has deteriorated so much that even repairs will only yield short-term results at best, then you're better off getting a new roof.

Can't I Just Install the Roof on My Own?

Many homeowners think they can save on roof replacement costs if they skip the labor fees and take the DIY approach. Unfortunately, DIY roofing has some major risks associated with it. Amateur work will likely provide substandard results, not to mention the risks of violating local building codes or losing the roofing material warranty. There are also the risks that come with working at height. In short, hiring professional roofing contractors is actually the safer and more economical option.

Why Tear Off the Old Roof If You Can Lay the New One Over It?

Reroofing or installing the new shingles over the current one is a common practice for those who want to save on tear-off costs. However, tearing off old shingles before installation has a few key benefits: the new layer will be as flat as possible, the roof supports won't get strained from the weight of two shingle layers, and roofers will have a chance to look at the rest of the roofing system and deal with problems before they cause any damage.

What Contributes to the Overall Roof Replacement Cost?

There are several things that can affect the overall cost of a roofing replacement project, but two of the biggest factors are the size of the roof and the material used. Larger roofs would definitely cost more, and some materials (such as three-tab shingles) cost less per area than others (such as wood, tile or even regular asphalt shingles).
