Your roof is your main source of protection against the elements. It shelters you and your loved ones against the worst weather and stays steadfast against the elements. Over time, even with regular maintenance, your roof will weaken and start to show its age. Exposure to the weather, functionality of other roof components, accidents, and other factors can shorten you roof’s life.
If problems persist, it may mean that your roof is near the end of its life. Don’t let this scare you though - your roof may not need a full replacement quite yet. The best thing to do is to get a roofing assessment and find out if you have to take more drastic measures. The team at T & N Roofing can help you better understand your roof and walk you through re-roofing or roof replacement in Kamloops.
If issues arise and you’ve talked to the experts and now need to make a choice, we can help you decide.
Re-roofing: The way re-roofing works is a new set of shingles is layered over a set of existing shingles. Now, this can only be done once, otherwise you risk not having the nails go deep enough to anchor your shingles properly if there’s more than one layer of them underneath. This process is faster and generally less expensive depending on the materials you’re using.
Roof replacement: Roof replacement is just that - tearing everything down to the deck and putting on new felt and shingles. This can be done no matter how many layers of shingles are on your roof. This process can be more expensive but you’ll be sure that there are no surprises or extra issues hiding under your shingles.
Figuring out what’s best for your home depends on what issues you’re experiencing when it comes to your roof. Re-roofing can be a great solution when your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan but is still sturdy enough to last a little longer with the help of new shingles. Have your home and roof checked by an expert to ensure there are no major issues, damage, soggy shingles, and no large amounts of moss or mildew.
