Roof replacement is very different from new roof construction. It usually involves tearing off everything on the roof down to the deck, then applying new roofing materials and components. This is also different from reroofing, which involves the placement of new shingles over existing ones. What a roof replacement does not do is guarantee 100% protection in the long run. It is recommended by the experts and manufacturers alike that all roofs, whether new or existing, receive regular maintenance, usually twice per year.
Flat roofs are very common in northern New Mexico, where the architecture tends to mimic the Pueblo style of the Indigenous people who have made our state their home for centuries. The one thing to remember, however, is that a flat roof is not really flat. They are built with a gentle slope to guarantee adequate drainage of water. But even these roofs may need to be replaced from time to time.
Our harsh desert weather can cause deterioration over time, which in turn can lead to ponding, leaking and other roofing concerns. The variation of temperature in northern New Mexico – heavy snow in the winter and extreme heat during the summer – requires a special kind of attention in this type of climate, something McPartlon takes very seriously. With the proper materials and knowledge, a new flat roof can give you the protection you need from the real-world challenges you face every day.
In some instances, a reroof can include extra insulation, adding to the R-value of your roof. R-value measures how well insulation prevents the flow of heat into and out of your home or place of business. The higher the R-value, the greater your insulation performance, which in turn affects your heating and cooling bills. The roofing professionals at McPartlon Roofing can help you increase your R-value, whether you’re doing a reroof or a replacement roof is necessary.
