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. has noticed most homeowners have the same questions when it comes to their roofs. This article will touch upon those frequently asked questions and explain how WOR addresses them.

Should I tear off my roof or lay a new roof over the existing one?

There are strengths and drawbacks to both options. You will achieve a similar look with a layover or tear-off. With the layover, 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?


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

I am not going to be home during the re-roofing. 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 also increases productivity on the job.

Why is there such a big difference in pricing?

There are many reasons for roof price 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 its employees. Having the proper insurances is expensive, but it also protects the company, employees and homeowners.


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