As a homeowner in Orlando, you’ve been exposed to some of the most violent weather seen throughout the country. Some times our state brings heavy rains, high winds, and even hail and sleet at certain times. This almost certainly means your roof takes a great deal of punishment from the elements on an daily basis.
Making good decisions is the key to minimizing near- and long-term costs related to any home improvement. This is especially true for large, complex jobs like re-roofing. In this particular case, some of the most important decisions should be made before you hire a contractor.
The first decision is whether to simply patch leaks and damaged areas or whether partial or complete re-roofing is in order. If you choose the latter, you’ll also have to decide whether to roof over your existing roof or whether to remove it. There are cost consequences either way.
When To Repair
Replacing shingles due to wind damage or a fallen limb is a relatively easy and inexpensive. Torn or damaged shingles can be removed, and new ones can be slipped in place. The downside is that unless your roof is relatively new and you happen to have saved some spare shingles from the job, your patch job may not match the existing roof. But that is a small price to pay if the repair would extend the life of your current roof for another 10 or 15 years!
If the damage is more significant but confined to one side of the roof, partial re-roofing is an option that will cost considerably less than doing the entire roof. Repairing a section of roofing will also make it easier to blend new with old, because slight color differences will be less noticeable.
A New Roof—Cheaper in the Long Term?
Even if only part of your roof is showing signs of wear, it’s wise to consider doing the entire job while the crew is on-site with its scaffolding, ladders, and equipment. This will likely be less expensive than doing one part now and the remainder in a few years.
Re-roofing also means that your roof will be updated to the latests codes and can withstand storm season and hurricanes. With a more durable shingle, one with vastly improved adhesives, holds a lot of appeal. The fact that the new shingles would have six nails per shingle instead of four, as now recommended by the shingle manufacturer for high-wind areas, was also an incentive.
Tear Off or Roof Over?
Once you’ve decided to reroof, you’ll have to decide whether to install your new roof over the existing one or whether to tear the old one off. Once again, the choice comes down to saving a little money now and risking greater expenses down the road, or spending more now to do the job right and minimize future expenses.
If you already have two layers shingles, the decision is made for you. The International Residential Code (R907.3) says that you cannot put a new roof over two or more applications of any type of roof covering. Part of the reason has to do with weight and its effect on the structure of your home.
