Sometimes, when it comes time for a new roof, it’s more than just a matter of replacing the old one. If your roof is costing you more in repairs and maintenance, a new roof is a worthwhile investment.
Roof replacements may be a big investment, but the pay-off is even better in the long-run. Particularly so, when the new roof is a more efficient type. The better the investment, the better the return will be down the road.

Fibreglass laminated asphalt shingles
Thanks to their durability and cost, fibreglass laminated asphalt shingles are quickly becoming the popular new roof choice. They are made with the fibre mat of a “duroid shingle,” which lends to their high durability. Pure asphalt shingles are prone to warping if they absorb too much water, but the duroid base prevents this. Coupled with laminated fibreglass, it also makes the shingles both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
The combined strength of these shingles makes them highly resistant to damages, and they can withstand strong winds or storms. Visually as well, the shingles can be made to resemble many other types of roofing such as wood shingles. Plus, these shingles require minimal maintenance!
Roof conversion process
A full roof replacement requires the entire old roof to be removed, before installing the new. Because of the steps and skills involved, it’s always recommended to hire a professional to do the job. Working on a roof can be dangerous, so having the know-how and proper equipment is essential.
First, the existing shingles and underlayment must be removed and the roof inspected. If there is any damage, such as damaged boards or rot, these must first be cleaned and replaced. From there, if required, new plywood is installed to create the necessary flat service for the new shingles. After this has been done safely, the new shingles are installed.
A significant benefit of roof conversions is that it restores the strength and appeal of your roof and overall system. Upgrading a roof is a major investment, but it’s one such investment that is guaranteed to pay off. With older roofs that are sagging or leaking, merely re-roofing won’t always fix the issue. Roof replacements come down to a matter of properly protecting your home and saving money. Upgrading your roof also lets you choose a more energy-efficient option, update overall curb appeal and overall value. Roofs play a vital role in the safety and comfort of a home, investing now is always the right choice. Take a look at some tell-tale signs that your old roof is at the end of its lifespan and needs to be replaced.
