Removing old shingles to prepare a roof for a new installation with blue sky

Re-Roof Or Tear Off

When your roof has reached the end of its life, most people assume their only option is to strip off the roof and start over. Heaton Brother Roofing considers it an obligation to help give their customers the best value for their money.
It is possible for a re-shingled roof to look as good and last as long as a “new” roof for less money and a lot less hassle. Getting an estimate from a certified expert will help you decide the best thing to do. It’s important to be acutely aware of the condition of your roof before you make any decisions.

Since it’s essential to understand the pros and cons of covering an existing roof vs. tearing- off the original roof and starting over – let’s look at each definition as well as the benefit and unfavorable of each choice:

Tear off – this course is exactly what it sounds like. Heaton Brothers experts come in and tear off your current roof and then replace it with an entirely new roof.



Re-Roofing – this approach allows the roofer to come in and shingle over your already existing roof. It is important to remember this process can only be done once. If you have re-roofed in the past, it is not an option, and you will need to do a tear off.


Sometimes, if your roof is very old, it may be better to replace the whole thing, rather than fix a shingle or two. At Heaton Brothers Roofing we use the best materials and planning – so let one of our experts evaluate your existing surface and discuss the best solution for your situation!

If your home’s roof is getting up there in years, it may be time for a roof replacement. While this can be an expensive project, your roof is what protects your home and your family, so you want to make sure you get it done right.
