When Can I Do a Roof Over?

Damaged Roof

If you started to notice issues with your roof, or if it is nearing the end of its lifespan, it is time for you to decide your next steps. If your roof is in a condition where a few repairs will not be enough to get it back into working order, but it is still functional, then you should consider a roof-over or reroofing.

It is recommended that you consult with a commercial roofing expert at ARC-1 Commercial Roofing to determine your best course of action.

Reroofing vs. Roof Replacement

Reroofing or a roof-over is a process where roofers install a new roof over the existing one rather than tearing off the old roof. Most local codes do not allow a roof-over if the roof already has two roof systems in place. If the roof only has one system in place, a roof-over may be the best course of action.

A roof replacement is a process where the old roof is torn off, and a new roof is installed. Everything is torn off down to the deck of the roof, and the roofers start from scratch, building a new roof. Since a roof replacement involves tearing off all layers, it does not matter how many roof systems are in place because they will all be torn off.

A roof replacement requires much more time and labor, and in turn, will cost more than reroofing. If your roof has no underlying issues and is just old and losing function, reroofing will likely be your best option since it is less work and less money.
