While both replacement and new construction provide a new roof for your building, there are a few key differences.
As the name implies, roof replacement is the process of installing a new system on your existing building. While the actual construction techniques are similar, the intricacies behind roof replacement aren’t very complicated. Essentially, it’s just about making sure your new roof works with your existing building.
New construction roofing is different from roof replacement because it’s a much more involved process. Building a new roof from scratch requires careful planning and strategizing. Your roofing contractors need to analyze your building as a whole to determine which roofing solution works the best on your facility.
While roof replacement is just removing the old system and installing a new one, new construction roofing covers everything from installing your framework to attaching your shingles.
