The roof should be checked on an annual basis especially if the home owner lives in areas prone to tornadoes or typhoons, and it should also be a consideration for those who experience severe weather patterns throughout the year. Roof re-surfacing and re-roofing are two completely separate projects. Re-roofing means replacing the entire roof, whilst re-surfacing means the restoration and rejuvenation of a home’s existing roofing structure. Roofing can be an expensive item and it would be wise to think about planning an allocation in your budget to put into this project for the time when your roof needs attention. This way you will be prepared and the project can then be viewed as an investment for the future of your home.
