Benefits of a Roof Restoration

When you have a hole in your roof, does it really mean you need a whole new roof?

Perhaps not. If your existing roof is in generally good condition and if you’ve been performing periodic maintenance, the cost to repair a roof is considerably less than what you would expect to pay for an entire roof replacement. During a restoration, the existing roofing material is left in place, minor roof leaks are repaired, and the entire roof system is resurfaced. This is far less expensive than the average cost of an entire roof replacement.

Can my roof be restored instead of replaced?

Unfortunately not all roofing systems are good candidates for roof restoration. The professionals at Frederic Roofing will use the following criteria to determine of your roof is a good candidate for restoration:

  • How long has it been since the last inspection? There should be good documentation of yearly maintenance
  • What kind of roof do you have? Most metal roofs or asphalt shingles can be repaired but slate tile roofs may not be.
  • Are there signs of moisture damage or decay? Damage to the flashing around a chimney or skylight or near gutters makes a restoration more difficult.
  • How many layers of roofing material are already in place? Stripping and replacing existing material can be costly, meaning restoration is more likely.

Frederic Roofing will help you make the right decision.

A thorough inspection by the pros at Frederic will determine the overall condition of your roof and will weight the cost of a roof restoration per square foot against the probable roof repair cost. This allows you to make the most informed home improvement decision. Your roof is a critical component of your house and we will make sure it continues to protect your home for years to come.
