Roof Re-Shingling St. John's NL
When the existing shingles sustain visible damage or leaking starts on your shingle roofing, get the roof re-shingling St. John’s NL residents trust. Repairing a localized leak on a shingle roof is relatively inexpensive and simple. That’s because only a few shingles require replacement.
However, if a larger area needs repair because of extensive water damage, poor installation, or age, shingle roof repair might not help. In that case, re-shingling or complete shingle roof replacement might be the best option. In some cases, a localized area of the roof can be re-shingled to prevent extensive damage while extending the lifespan of the shingle roof.
How Re-Shingling Differs from Roof Replacement
Roof replacement entails complete removal of the existing underlayment and roof before installation of a new roof. The deck is left completely bare before new roofing is installed. This makes roof replacement a costly and more laborious job.
Re-shingling on the other hand entails addition of a new shingles’ layer on the existing roof. The newly installed shingles work and look like those of a new roof. Since the old roof is not removed completely, re-shingling is less expensive and less labor intensive.
We offer a re-shingling service that saves our clients both time and money. Our crew inspects the existing roof carefully and explains the available options to our clients in a way they understand.
When to Re-Shingle Your Roofing System
Most roofs have up to two shingles’ layers. Therefore, if your roof has undergone re-shingling, removing both layers and inspecting the decking before re-shingling it again is important. If a third layer is added at the top of the second layer, the roofing system might not be secure. That’s because nails will be hammered via three layers. Thus, they might not reach the deck to provide a firm grip.
Re-shingling is ideal for a roofing system with an intact deck. The deck should not have missing shingles or extensive damage though it might be up to 20 years old. At this age, shingles may have started to break down. Our team will inspect your roof, prepare it, and install new shingles if that’s the best option for your roofing structure.
