Re-roofing vs. roof replacement Services

At Olde South Roof and Home, we offer residential and commercial re-roofing services in the Mooresville, Salisbury, & Huntersville, Concord, . Re-roofing services are an appropriate choice for home and business owners that have a roof near the end of its lifespan and overall in good shape. If there aren’t any signs of major water damage, missing shingles, or large amounts of mildew, then a simple re-roof can be completed.

When you need a new roof, you might be able to get away with re-roofing instead of a total replacement. The re-roofing process involves layering a new set of shingles over the existing shingles. This can only be done once, so if you already have two layers of shingles on top of your roof, then you will need a roof replacement. This process goes much smoother and faster because there is no tear off involved. Re-roofing is a cheaper option than a complete replacement.

When your roofing is in rough shape and cannot be re-roofed, or there are already two layers on it, a complete tear off is required. This involves tearing the shingles and other layers down to the wood deck. In some cases, some of the wood decking may need to be replaced if it is broken or rotting. New felt paper and shingles are then added. This is labor-intensive and can take a few days.


When your roof could use some attention, don’t hesitate to call our roofing contractors. We’re ready to help!
