After years of weathering the New Mexico sun and the dry heat of our Southwest climate, your roof might need to be replaced. Depending on the material and the care you provide to it, a residential roof can last up to 30 years under the right conditions. That said, sometimes a roof replacement is the best way to bring new value to your home and make sure you’re protected against the elements.
Delgado’s General Contractors is standing by, ready to give you the new roof you need to have confidence for years to come. We’re capable of bringing you complete roof replacement services alongside other contract remodeling for every other part of your home, completing overlay roofing work and even upgrading your roofing to support better materials for better longevity.
Overlay roofing is a simple way to get a brand-new roof. This process involves laying a new layer of shingles directly on top of the existing one, creating a second barrier against weathering and the elements. It’s more affordable than a complete roof replacement and installed very quickly—often in as little as a day.
The downfall of overlay roofing is that you can only do it once. Once a second layer has been added to your roof, the next time you need roofing work, the entire thing needs to come off. Overlay roofing adds extra weight to your roof, which can burden the infrastructure and cause ventilation issues in your attic if not done correctly.
We approach overlay roofing with an eye for detail, so you’re always getting the benefits you deserve from this cost-efficient solution.
Also called tear-off roofing, a full roof replacement is the best way to guarantee that your Albuquerque, NM home is protected for years and years to come. Roof replacements ensure you get the works: new shingles/tile, new vapor barrier and flashings, and more. It’s a comprehensive, ground-up way to ensure every detail of your roof is in its best condition.
While there are very few drawbacks to roof replacement, homeowners should expect to pay more than overlay roofing work. The process can also take longer and involves more of a mess, since roof replacements involve tearing off old material.
When it comes to tear-off jobs, expect us to work quickly and cleanly, so you’re left with a beautiful roof that’s ready to withstand whatever Mother Nature can throw at it.
Thinking about making a big investment in your roof? Roofing upgrades involve going from one material to another—like regular three-tab shingles to reinforced asphalt shingles or shingle to tile. Often, this process requires special considerations, such as determining if your roof can handle the weight of a different material or checking to see if any infrastructure updates need to be made.
If you’re ready to make a roofing upgrade, consult with us! Not only can we make sure your roof is ready to handle the upgrade, we’ll do the work right, so you get all the benefits that come with a brand-new roof and high-caliber materials.
