Are there any options if I decide to reroof?
We provide our clients with two basic options. First, complete roof replacement, where we will tear-off the existing roof and install the new roof. Second, we will re-cover the existing roof with a new roof system. Our professionals will carefully check the roof. If it already had one re-cover installed, then we will recommend to remove the old roof and install a new one. It is because some building code requirements don’t allow more than one roof system re-cover.
