When an older roof needs more than a few minor repairs, a full roof replacement is often in order. This process involves removing all the existing roofing materials before installing new ones. Reroofing, on the other hand, is a roofing solution that entails adding a new layer of roofing materials to the current materials. Because there is no labor involved in tearing off the old materials, reroofing is quicker and less expensive than full roof replacement.
When an existing roof has minor damage with just a few leaks but is in overall good condition, it is a good candidate for reroofing. If the current roofing system already has two layers of roofing materials, it cannot be reroofed again — it must be completely replaced. Total roof replacement is also the best option for roofs that are sagging, show signs of major water damage, or have large amounts of mold or mildew.
