Shingle Tear Off

Many homeowners find it difficult to decide on a roof replacement strategy. In most cases, roofing contractors will recommend a full roof replacement, but in some cases, a simpler roof repair or roof tune-up job may be deemed more appropriate. This will be largely determined by the age and overall quality of the existing roof, as well as the overall condition of the house.

Outdated Method

Overlaying shingles, on the other hand, is a re-roofing technique of the past. While a repair job is often more convenient and less expensive, putting new shingles over old ones is never a good idea.

Short Cuts Never Turn Out Good

Before replacing the roof, the shingles must be removed. The tear-off process is the messiest part of the roof replacement project, but it is critical to properly rebuild the roofing system because it allows you to get to the decking to ensure that there is no damage to the decking before placing new shingles on the roof. If damaged decking is discovered while tearing off a roof, it must be replaced; otherwise, the roof's integrity will be compromised, and the manufacturer warranty will no longer be valid; additionally, it will be a building code violation.

Short-lived Discomfort For A Long Term Gain

We always warn our homeowners that the tear-off process is noisy and messy, and that they should avoid coming in and out of their homes or letting their pets out during this time. It is a temporary discomfort that will pay off in the long run. Always go with a roofing company that has years of experience and insurance to cover any unknown accidents.
