No home roof lasts forever, so it is important to know the difference between a reroof (also called a recover or layover) or an entire roof replacement. One advantage of a reroof is the reduced costs involved. A reroof will provide you significant savings over a roof replacement because you?ll be able to enjoy the protection that a brand new roof brings without having to purchase a new roof deck or structural supports.

Reroof vs Roof Replacement
Many people often ask what the difference is between a reroof and a roof replacement.
- Reroofing: involves recovering or replacing your existing roof covering
- Roof replacement: involves removing the existing roof covering, making repairs to any damaged substrate, and installing a new roof covering

When is the Best Time to Reroof?
People often ask if putting a new roof over an existing roof is ever acceptable. In short, the answer is maybe. It is difficult to conduct a proper reroof without the complete removal of the damaged roof, and many roofing manufacturers will not honor warranties with roofs that have been installed in this fashion. If you ever chose to sell your home, potential buyers will avoid purchasing a home with a roof over a roof. Furthermore, many places have laws that do not allow such roofing practices.
Legit Exteriors would be happy to complete your reroofing project in a professional and timely manner. We take pride in the superior quality roofing services we provide and we are committed to providing you a roof that will extend its life expectancy.
