A new roof is one of the biggest investments you will ever make in your home, but if you plan your decision carefully and do not compromise on quality, you will have to make it only once in your life and you will also get great ROI (up to 80% of its original cost upon resale!)
Depending on the condition of your existing roof, you have two options: re-roofing or undergoing a complete roof replacement by a hired roofing contractor Dallas area company.
Re-roofing is the most convenient and cost effective option. It is much quicker than a complete roof replacement, because the new materials are placed over the existing materials, without tearing them down. The structure of the roof and the insulation already exist and they can be kept as they are, if no particular damage is identified.
However, there are a few requirements to be able to be a candidate for re-roofing.
First and foremost, you must have a single layer of shingles already installed on your roof. If you already have two layers, building codes prohibit the installation of a third layers; in this case, you will have to go for a full roof replacement.
Second, the structure of your roof must be strong enough to support the second layer of materials. If you opt for a metal roof, things will likely go smoothly, because it is lightweight; but if you prefer other types of materials, the structure may have to be consolidated first.
