A roof replacement involves tearing off everything on the roof down to the deck, then putting on new felt paper and shingles. A roof replacement can be done no matter how many layers of shingles already exsit on the roof. A roof replacement occurs when re-roofing is not an option. However, a roof replacement can be more expensive than a re-roof because of the extra labor involved,
Re-roofing is the process of layering one set of new shingles over a set of existing shingles. It can only be done once, so if you already have two layers of roofing in place, re-roofing is not an option for you. Since a tear off isn't required, re-roofing can go faster and be less expensive than a complete roof replacement.
Sometimes an entire roof replacement is not necessary as only a small roof repair is needed. Roof leaks are the most common request for roof repair service. Ignoring a roof leak can lead to damage on the interior of your home and can lead to many unforeseen expenses. Schedule a roof inspection to find the root of the leak.
NOTE: Trinity Home Renovations does NOT always service roof repair due to project backlog.
DO I NEED A NEW ROOF?
If you identify any of the following danger signals of a failing roof it may be time for a roof replacement, re-roofing or repair.
ATTIC LEAKS - After a strong storm or wind-driven rain, take a look in the attic for signs of leaking. It could indicate damaged shingles, inadequate underlayment or deteriorated flashing.
MISSING, CRACKED, OR CURLED SHINGLES - Dry, cracked, or easily broken shingles have reached the end of their useful life, and it’s time to invest in a new roof.
BLISTERING OR PEELING PAINT - Moisture trapped in the house due to poor ventilation can cause exterior paint to peel and blister.
DARK, "DIRTY-LOOKING" AREAS ON YOUR ROOF - Vegetation, fungus, mold, or algae growth can cause dark stains on your shingles. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need a new roof.
STAINS ON INTERIOR CEILINGS & WALLS - Stains, or worse, mold, can be caused by leaks from outside the house or moisture trapped inside.
EXCESSIVE ENERGY COSTS - Inadequate ventilation can possibly drive up your household cooling costs by trapping hot air in the attic. Attic moisture can also drip into your insulation, reducing its effectiveness.
EXTERIOR DECAY - Excess moisture can also contribute to decay.
