We get it—the idea of re-roofing your Edmonton home or business feels overwhelming. It’s a big undertaking. But at the same time, it comes with a lot of BIG benefits too. And those benefits are what we are going to talk about in today’s post.
Roof Replacement vs. Re-Roofing Your Edmonton Home or Business
But before we get into the specific benefits of re-roofing your Edmonton home or business, let’s talk about choosing this route versus an entire roof replacement.
Both can be great options, but a roof replacement isn’t always necessary. For a roof replacement, the team will remove everything from your roof, right down to the deck. Then new felt-paper and shingles are added. We mentioned how re-roofing your Edmonton home or business can feel overwhelming. Still, roof replacement is even more of an undertaking, so re-roofing is a preferred option for many people.
Rather than removing the existing roof and starting from scratch, re-roofing involves placing new shingles over the existing shingles. It can only be done once (so there’s a maximum of two shingles layers), but there are many advantages to going this route.

The Benefits of Re-Roofing Your Edmonton Home or Business
Let’s dig into them.
Most of the time, re-roofing your Edmonton home or business will cost you a lot less than replacing the roof. Of course, there are times when replacing it is necessary, but this is a great

Boosts property value and curb appeal
Your roof has a significant impact on the overall impression and curb appeal of your home or business. If it’s not in tip-top shape, no amount of landscaping or renovations will cut it. Re-roofing provides an instant “facelift” for your property and makes it far more appealing to potential buyers or customers. At the same time, it can also provide you with a substantial boost to the property value.
But even if you aren’t planning to sell your property, you’ll appreciate the cosmetic improvements you get from re-roofing every time you look at your home or business! You can also choose from new shingle colours and materials to make sure your roof matches your tastes, as well as any updates you do on the rest of the structure.
When your roof is past its prime, more moisture tends to work its way through the shingles and into your property. In turn, this can cause mildew, mould, and a whole host of other issues. At the same time, it can also mean your heating bills skyrocket as you try to compensate for the cold air and moisture getting into your home or business.
Re-roofing addresses these compromised areas, and heating/cooling your building will become a lot more efficient at the same time.
Your roof never gets a break from the elements. Whether it’s wind, rain, snow, or ice, it puts up with a lot. But eventually, these conditions take their toll. If you opt for re-roofing your Edmonton home or business, you’re giving your roof (and in turn, your entire property) a better chance at withstanding whatever Mother Nature throws at it.
