Do I Need a Roof Replacement or a Re-Roof?
What is a Roof Replacement?
This service is when a home’s current roof is stripped back to expose the roof substructure and the proper material for your type of roof is completely reinstalled in its place. Leaving the homeowner with a new roof.
What is Re-Roofing?
Re-roofing is a cost effective way to repair your home if you have a roof with asphalt shingles, also called composition shingles. This option isn’t available for flat roofs or metal roofs.
During the re-roofing process a new layer of asphalt shingles is installed over top of your existing roof which revitalizes its appearance and adds a protective layer to help prevent leaks. However, you can only re-roof your home if it hasn’t been done before. Meaning to be code compliant there must only be 2 layers of asphalt shingles on your roof at one time. Adding a 3rd is prohibited and you will need to invest in a roof replacement.

Got Roof Problems?
Another aspect of answering whether you need a roof replacement or a new roof is understanding the problems with your roof.
There can be many signs that your roof is in need of repair or complete replacement. They vary based on what type of roof your home has and how much work has previously gone into your roof.
Some common signs include:
Readily identifiable problems like visible holes are usually a relatively simple fix. Patching holes is a suitable solution for small holes and minor damage. But If your roof has taken unexpected damage or is older, it could be safer and more financially savvy to look into a full roof replacement. Either way, our technicians can help you with this analysis and in making this decision.
Another readily noticeable issue is when shingles start “curling” or lifting away from the roof. This creates the potential for leaks and damage to the area that the shingle has separated from. Missing shingles or cracked shingles from wind damage should be replaced for similar reasons. Over time, asphalt granules can deteriorate and once they’re all gone, the shingles start to bake and your roof’s integrity begins to steadily and severely decrease. Typically, asphalt shingle roofs only last an average of 25 years. If you are unsure of your roof’s age, it might be a good idea to have us give it a check-up. But if shingle damage is occurring in many different parts across the roof, it’s frequently an indication that a complete re-roofing should be considered.
This is also the case when a roof has begun sagging. A sagging roof indicates structural issues and there can be several causes for this, which our professionals are experts at identifying. It is a project which requires expert professional help because it is not safe for anyone without training to try and repair this type of damage on their own. Sagging is easier and safer to take care of sooner rather than later – ideally, right when you notice the issue. This type of damage most often will indicate that a full roof replacement is necessary.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to know or tell when your roof has problems. Looking at your roof every day can make it easy to miss any gradual change in your roof’s condition. That’s why our experts at Roofers in Las Cruces are here to help. We are happy to perform an analysis and give you a repair or replacement estimate.
