WE DO NOT RECOMMEND PLACING NEW SHINGLES OVER OLD SHINGLES
Reroofing is a cheap roofing solution for your home; however, it is prone to issues due to a poor subroofing foundation. Re-roofing is the process of layering one set of new asphalt shingles over a set of existing old shingles.
A leaking roof does not necessarily mean that you need a complete replacement. Sometimes repairs can be made to prolong the life of your roof. Our team at LaFever Roofing has served customers since 1978 with reliable, honest roofing repair services. Call (208) 888-5285 to request a free estimate.
You might need reroofing if:
- Significant shingle damage to multiple layers of your roof
- Existing shingles are either old or poor quality
- Signs of extensive water damage or mold growth
- Visible sagging or buckling in the roof
If your roof does not display these problems, reroofing may be an excellent option for your home. Unlike repairs, reroofing does require a permit if you are covering more than 100 square feet. Our Nampa roofers will assist you with every step of obtaining the permit and conducting the reroofing on your home.
HAVE YOU REROOFED YOUR HOME BEFORE?
Most roofs can only be reroofed once. This is because the process of re-roofing involves installing new shingles over the existing shingles, essentially creating a double-layered roof. More than two layers of roof on your home is considered unsafe and professional roofing contractors will not usually perform a second reroofing.
Asphalt shingles can sometimes withstand two overlays, unlike gravel roofing, wood roofing, smooth, and cap sheet roofing.
REROOFING COSTS LESS THAN TEAR OFFS
If the structure can support the weight, a typical 20-square (2,000-square-foot) reroof will cost at least $1,500 less than a tear-off job. Labor savings are beyond demolition: Not having to lay down felt paper saves $14 a square foot; and site/ weather protection, as well as cleanup, are all decreased if not eliminated entirely. A reroof job will look as good and last as long as a "new" roof, for less money and a lot less hassle.
