A roof replacement involves tearing off everything on the roof down to the deck, then putting on new felt paper and shingles. A roof replacement can be done no matter how many layers of shingles are already on the roof, so it can be done even when a reroofing is not an option. Because of the extra labor involved, it can be more expensive than a reroofing.
Roof replacement can be done at any time but especially if there are problems with the roof deck. While you can save money with re-roofing, you can only do it if you have a couple of issues but once the roof is ready to give out, roof replacement is your only option. A roof replacement will address all the issues with your roof instead of covering it up.
Reroofing is the process of layering one set of new shingles over a set of existing shingles.
