Re-roofing & Roof Replacements
We are experts in re-roofing and roof replacements for all types of residential or commercial properties in Auckland.
What’s The Difference Between Re-roofing & Roof Replacement?
Re-roofing involves installing a new roof over the top of your existing one. This is different from a replacement roof, which requires completely stripping down the roof to the sheathing and replacing it with an entirely new roof.

Do I Need Re-roofing or a Roof Replacement?
Your roof may be leaking or corroded and in need of a re-roof or replacement. If you have an Asphalt Shingle Roof, your shingles may be ageing, brittle, or showing excessive granule loss (which causes the shingles to dry out rapidly and split).
Re-roofing is an acceptable option as long as there is only one layer of shingles and none of them are lifting or curling. If there are two or more layers already, or if the single existing layer is curling, lifting, or otherwise unsound, then a full replacement roof is needed.
If it’s just time for a new look or you’d like to change the material of your roof, there are many things to consider before going ahead with a re-roof or roof replacement. For example, if you want to replace a lightweight material (e.g. iron) with a heavyweight material (e.g. concrete tiles), you’ll need to take the building and roof structure into account. You may also need building consent from your local council.
