FAQs about your home’s re-roofing project

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

As a homeowner, one of the last things you want to think about is re-roofing your home. In recent years, West Oahu Roofing Inc. (WOR) has noticed most homeowners have asked similar questions. This article will touch upon those frequently asked questions about your roofing project, and how WOR addresses them.

SHOULD I TEAR OFF MY EXISTING ROOF OR LAY A NEW ROOF OVER THE EXISTING ONE?

There are strengths and drawbacks of both roof installation types. You will achieve a similar look with a layover or tear-off. You will also receive the manufacturer’s warranty if installed by a licensed roofing professional, and the overall cost will be less because there is less roofing debris removal. However, you are also increasing extra weight on your roof, and it is difficult for unforeseen repairs to be made.

WOR would recommend tearing off the existing roof because the company is able to check for all necessary repairs, and you would become eligible for an extended warranty guaranteeing workmanship for 25 years. WOR believes this is worth the added cost to perform a tear-off versus a roof layover.

WILL A LARGE ROLL-OFF BIN BLOCK MY DRIVEWAY UNTIL IT IS PICKED UP?

No, WOR does not utilize large roll-off bins for any residential roofing jobs. WOR has a fleet of dump trucks and dump trailers that will be used in the driveway during working hours, and at the end of each workday, WOR removes the dump truck or dump trailer so you can utilize your driveway during off hours.

I AM NOT GOING TO BE HOME DURING THE REROOFING. HOW WILL THE WORKERS USE THE RESTROOM?

WOR sympathizes with employees because the company understands that everyone needs to “go.” Regardless if the homeowner is home or not, WOR always provides its own portable toilet for its employees. This increases the morale of the employees, and it also increases productivity of your job.

WHY IS THERE SUCH A BIG DIFFERENCE IN PRICING?

There are many reasons for roof prices differences, but the main reason is licensed roofers versus unlicensed roofers.

Licensed roofers are required to have liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance for all of their employees.

Having the proper insurances is expensive but it also protects the company, employees and homeowners.

WOR provides all employees with the necessary safety equipment and ensures all employees abide by all necessary safety practices.
