Savvy Roofing Solutions May Recommend Partial, Or Complete Roof Replacement In Some Cases
Sometimes patching just isn’t enough. An inspection by Savvy Roofing Solutions may find that a partial, or complete replacement is necessary. Our inspectors have the expertise to suggest the best course of action to take. If they find that the damage to your roof is significant, there are several ways to proceed, and factors to take into consideration.
If only one portion of the roof has been compromised for instance, you may opt for partial replacement. It may seem cheaper to do so, but you may actually save money by replacing the entire roof at one time. If for instance, there are 2 layers of existing shingles on the roof of your home, residential code requires that they be removed before replacement shingles can be installed. If you only remove the shingles from one side of the roof, the result may produce an uneven effect. Also, your existing shingles may be out of stock, or retired, and you will have to settle for finding the next best material to blend in with the remaining ones. So, a complete replacement may work best financially, and for appearance sake. Several points may influence your decision. The age of the existing shingles could be a factor, since wear and tear will eventually affect the entire roofing system. You can expect a lifespan of 20 years from a cedar roof, while a tiled roof can last for up to 100 years. Climate is another consideration – if your roof is susceptible to further damage, a new roof using a more weather resistant material may be a good alternative. Having a heat efficient roof installation may make a homeowner eligible for a government tax credit. Be sure to check the guidelines
When you’re ready to choose the material for your new roof, pick one that your houses’ structure can support. A Savvy Roofing Solutions representative may remind you that the very attractive slate or tile, is also the most heavy. Roof replacement is a big investment, but it is also one of the smartest you can make. Not only for your family’s safety, and protection, but for the resale value of the home. The professionals at Savvy Roofing Solutions are on hand to inspect, and make recommendations that will result in the best resolution for your home’s improvement.
