Reroofing Auckland Is A GoodAlternative To Roof Replacemenet

Reroofing gives your home in Auckland the look of a new roof. The process of reroofing is one that does not cause the inconvenience as a replacement roof will.

Reroofing Auckland can be an ideal choice for roofs of homes that are near the end of their lifespan but are yet in fairly good shape, with no issues of leaks, missing or soggy shingles or other major water damage. It is always better to go in for reroofing of the entire roof instead of subjecting only a part of the roof to this remedy. A partial reroof can result in an uneven look to the roof and can cause problems at ridge caps.

A reroof does not require the existing shingles to be removed, and thus you can never be certain as to how the roof deck below the present layer is. So if this is sagging or has signs of rot, you will never know about it, until that defect becomes more noticeable. Reroofing is adding a new layer of shingles over an existing one and is something that you can only do once. Go in for roof replacement if your existing roof has excessive mildew and moss growth. Shingles can often lose their coating of granules and leave bald patches, that can then cause the shingles to dry out and split. Adding a new layer of shingles with reroofing can create a new layer of shingles.

Reroofing Auckland can reduce the lifespan of the new layer of shingles, as the substrate on which they are fixed is not as good as what you would have on a roof that is new or replaced. The existing shingles make for an uneven surface, and as a result, the reroofed shingles will not be flat and thus become more susceptible to being blown off. Over time, this would mean that the unevenness creates subtle bends that can lead to the shingle developing cracks more easily.

An additional layer of shingles means that new layer in the reroofing will have nails holding the shingles to have a lesser depth to which they reach the roof deck structure. Their life span then gets reduced and is a reason why agencies carrying out these works will be wary of giving any guarantees for the reroofed roof being watertight. Surely, Riteline Roofing can help you get this done at the lowest cost possible.
