If you live in your home long enough, a replacement is probably inevitable. A sagging or hole-riddled roof can pose a life-safety hazard, not to mention cause damage to the interior of your home.
But if your roof is in fairly good shape and needs only moderate repairs and a thorough cleaning, a Las Vegas roofing restoration may be the better – and more affordable – choice.
Frame a Las Vegas roofing restoration in visual terms
It may help to think of a Las Vegas roofing restoration as a middle-ground choice – more involved than a minor roof repair but less extensive than a roof replacement. A restoration involves working with the materials already present on a roof to return it to its original condition. As such, the roof must be structurally sound and stable – in what might be called moderately good condition. While the materials may be deteriorated or damaged, they cannot be beyond repair. If they are, a roof replacement may be the only remedy.
Naturally, these are general guidelines. There is no substitute for a roof inspection by the most experienced roofing company in Las Vegas: First Quality Roofing & Insulation.
Many homeowners “root for their roof”
There are three good reasons to “root for your roof.” A Las Vegas roofing restoration can:
- Save you a significant amount of money over a replacement – often between one-third and one-half the cost. This is because instead of tearing off the old roof and starting all over with new materials, a restoration preserves as much of the roof as possible. In addition to saving money on materials, a Las Vegas roofing restoration accrues fewer labor costs.
- Add 10 to 15 years to your roof's lifespan. This is a significant achievement, especially considering that most new roofs are built to last between 20 and 25 years.
- Represent your contribution to the environment since a restoration spares the amount of roofing waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Find out if a Las Vegas roofing restoration lies in your future
If First Quality Roofing & Insulation restores your roof, we will treat it to a deep cleaning, too. We may approach this task in one of two ways. The pressurized streams of water from pressure washing can remove dirt and stains, but they can sometimes damage an asphalt roof. Chemical washing (also known as soft washing) employs special chemicals that are safe on the roof, lawn and surrounding landscape.
