When you have the option of replacement it lowers the risk of taking a chance of making one repair after the other. A new roof installation also raises the value of your home.
When facing the decision of roofing replacement versus roofing repair it is important to consider the appearance, cost and durability. Our team of experienced roofing specialists in Los Angeles, CA will go over the pros and cons with each option and how different roofing materials fare against weather, sunlight and age.
Asphalt Shingles – Being one of the least expensive roofing materials, Asphalt Shingles can be a good option if you’re on a budget. They are available in a wide variety of colors and are commonly used on sloped roofs, single homes, and smaller residential projects. This material allows for flexibility during its installation process and is easy to install.
Tile Roofs – Tile Roofs allow for a wider variety of colors that match the exterior of your home because they are manufactured in many colors, from light shades to dark or multi-colored depending on your preference. They are made to have long term durability, may withstand high winds, other harsh weather climates and require less maintenance because they are individually installed.
Wood Shingles and Shakes – Wood singles are a good option because they do not rust like other materials and can provide better insulation to your roof. They provide an artistic and unique look to your house and with proper care can maintain their quality for over 50 years. They are lightweight but durable and maintenance is typically easy as each one is individually installed.
Slate – Slate roofing is made of natural stone and has a prestigious look often resembling an English cottage. Because of their durability they can often last more than a century. Slate roofing has a unique look that can set apart your home from others. Many consider slate roofing the best of the best as they are not only appealing visually but durable and require minimum maintenance.
Cool Roof – A cool roof is one that has been designed to reflect more sunlight and heat than an ordinary roof. Cool roofs can be made of a variety of materials, but all have one common goal: to keep the building cooler by reflecting the sun’s energy away.
Flat and Built Up Roofing – A built-up roof, most of the time referred to as BUR, is a time-tested roofing system typically comprised of hot tar and gravel. It is made up of many layers and typically the top layer is where the tar and gravel lie.. Of all the flat roof options available today, BUR has been around the longest.
Torch Down – A torch roof – also known as “torch on roofing”—is one of the most common types of roofing for flat and slightly sloped roofs. Torch down roofing consists of multiple modified bitumen membranes, applied with a propane torch
Hot mopping – A process used by roofers when installing a built-up roofing system. It involves the literal mopping of hot bitumen onto asphalt roofing paper for the purpose of binding and waterproofing subsequent layers of roofing material. The resulting layering effect provides a long lasting waterproof roof.
