Should You Use Re-Roofing in Michigan on Your Home?
The number of choices when it comes to getting a new roof in Michigan is huge. There are
choices in which type of roofing materials are used. There are also choices of the different
manufacturers and all the styles and colors that are offered. You may even have choices available
to you for the different types of designs in the roofing materials as well. But one of the biggest
decisions you’ll need to make when replacing asphalt shingles on your home is whether to use
the tear off and replacement for the roof or re-roofing in Michigan method of getting a new roof.
Although both will leave you with a new roof upon completion they are completely different in
their methods of adding that roof. In this article I’ll go over the difference in the two methods
and why you should choose one over the other.

Should You Use Re-Roofing in Michigan on Your Home?
One of the biggest debates in the roofing industry is the need for re-roofing a home. There are
many people who think that re-roofing is a bad idea altogether and although it may have some
flaws it can really help people get a new roof on their homes cheaper. There are key differences
in the roofing methods that I will address below and you can make a much more informed
decision about whether or not you should use re-roofing in Michigan as opposed to tear off and
What is Re-Roofing a Home in Michigan?

The term re-roofing in Michigan may be called some other than re-roofing. It may be reffered to
as overlay a roof or additional roof. In all cases the method of roofing remains the same. Reroofing in Michigan is adding a new layer of roofing materials (usually asphalt shingles) over the
existing roof without removing the original roof. By doing so the home owner can save money
and time but there are some drawbacks to getting this sort of roofing method done.
Weight Can Become an Issue when Re-roofing your Home

Roofing materials can be heavy. In fact, adding a new roof onto your home by re-roofing can
actually add thousands of more pounds of weight to your home. This extra weight can put a
bigger strain on structural parts of the home. It may also cause the roof of your home to sag
under this additional weight. Building codes do allow re-roofing in Michigan but there is a strict
limit on the number of re-roof jobs that can be done. A home can only be re-roofed once and no
more than two layers of roofing material should be added to the roof. The weight of such a load
would be too much and beyond structural limits of most homes.

Sometimes older homes that have weakened structural systems in place may notice cracking in the
drywall or settling in some areas after a re-roofing project is done on their homes. Carefully inspecting
the structural components of the home is important if you’re deciding on re-roofing in Michigan.
Consider the weight of snow added to the roof as well in Winter.
