Your roof needs to remain intact and damage-free to protect your home from the elements. Leaks, tears and missing shingles, however, can weaken your roofing system and compromise its functionality. To prevent water damage in your home, consider replacing your damaged or old roof. Elite Roofing Solutions, Inc., one of the trusted roofers in the area, discusses what to expect during a roof replacement project.
Hiring a Roofing Contractor
It’s easy to get swayed by a contractor that offers roof replacement services at an affordable price, but how can you tell if they are up for the job? Homeowners need to be careful about amateurs that don’t have a reliable reputation or even proper licensing and insurance. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we can guarantee quality services to make the most of your investment. We offer Timberline® asphalt shingles, one of the most popular lines of roofing in North America, which is backed by superior warranty coverage.
During the initial roof inspection, your contractor will identify the areas that need roof repair. Removing the old roofing materials, however, may reveal hidden damage. This will cause a few changes to the project and even extend its duration.
Removing the Old Shingles
Your roofing contractor may suggest installing your new asphalt shingles over your old roof, but that’s something that you should avoid. Re-roofing instead of replacing the entire roofing system may only cause structural damage, especially if you have an older home. It will also be difficult for your contractor to spot damage if they don’t remove the old materials.
