Tear Off vs. Overlay Replacements: Pros and Cons

Tear-offs and overlays are two types of roof replacement methods. In a tear-off, the contractor removes existing roof materials and replaces them with new ones. Meanwhile, an overlay keeps the current roof as is and simply lays the new materials on top.

When tearing off, you’ll be able to identify and solve any underlying issues that exist under the current roofing layer. However, it is more expensive due to the increased labor.

Overlays are much cheaper and faster since the contractor doesn’t have to remove the existing roof materials. But the old roof might not be able to handle the extra weight of the new one on top and could become compromised.

How Long Does it Take to Replace a Roof?

Several factors affect how much time it takes to replace roofs:

  • The size and complexity of the roof
  • How accessible it is
  • The weather during the project schedule
  • Unique situations like solar panel removal

Depending on these elements, roof replacements can take one day to potentially several days or a few weeks at most.

How Do You Know if it’s Time for Roof Replacement?

You may need a new roof if it is more than 25 years old or if you notice extensive curling or buckling of shingles, missing granules, ice dams, moisture and mold, and more.

How Do You Evaluate a Roofing Contractor?

When choosing a roofing contractor, be sure to check their insurance and license information. The contractor should also have a detailed project plan and payment terms. All of these help determine whether you’re hiring trusted, certified professionals who can do the job properly and have their own financial protection in case of work-related accidents.

I worked with Andrew to help me understand the cause of the problem and get a quote for the repair work. He was very knowledgeable, had a quote written up while he was onsite, and kept me informed on the schedule and progress. All my questions were answered and the work done by the crew was excellent.

Roof Replacements FAQs

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding roof replacements:

How often you should replace your roof depends on the climate where you live, how well the roof was installed, and the type of materials used on the roof. However, most roofs need to be replaced every 20-25 years.

The busy season for roofing is usually between late summer and early fall, but you can replace your roof during the other months as well. However, most experts recommend avoiding roof replacement when weather conditions are more extreme. This will vary depending on the climate. You’ll also want to avoid replacing your roof when temperatures drop below 40℉ as shingles rely on thermal sealing to adhere to the roof. The process goes much quicker in warmer weather, usually only a matter of hours, but can take days or weeks in colder weather.

Typically the answer is no, but many homeowners choose to have their gutters replaced as part of their roof replacement. However, if you’ve recently installed new gutters or they’re still in good condition, they won’t need to be removed during your roof replacement. Your contractors should take every precaution to ensure your gutters aren’t damaged during the replacement process. Most will even blow out gutters and clean them after the process is done.

The answer is no under most circumstances, but it depends greatly on the insurance. Some carriers may lower your premium as a new roof makes your home safer. Others may increase your costs, especially if you need to file for a new rate. Additionally, if you’re replacing your roof due to weather damage, you can usually expect your rate to remain the same, especially if it’s your first claim.

Not Ready for a Replacement? Consider Repairs

Not all issues call for a roof replacement. If your roof only has damages such as leaks, or missing or cracked shingles, you could save more money with roof repairs instead. American Roofing can inspect your roof and advise you on whether a repair job or replacement is the best course of action.
