Liz, Gisborne (February 2024)

“Your company recently re-roofed our home. The project had a degree of difficulty and complexity due to the age of the house (built 1880s), which required some careful planning and measuring before construction. Thank you for completing the work on time, on budget and to a high standard that compliments the early settler cottage design, and which we are very pleased with. Please pass on our thanks to all your site staff. They were great guys to have working here and nothing was too much trouble for them.”

Graham, Nelson (August 2018)

Re-roofing refers to completely replacing an existing roof with a brand-new one. To improve and lengthen the life of a roof, the process involves removing old materials. These materials may have worn out from use, age, or harm.

After that, we install new roofing materials to replace the old ones. Re-roofing is an essential home upgrade that boosts your home's structural stability, increases energy conservation, and can significantly alter the visual attractiveness of your property.

Re-roofing is typically necessary when your current roof displays signs of wear, damage, or aging that compromise its functionality and integrity. Common indicators that may signal the need for re-roofing include persistent leaks, missing or damaged shingles, curling or cracked roofing materials, and visible wear and tear. Additionally, if your roof is approaching the end of its expected lifespan, it's wise to consider re-roofing as a proactive measure to avoid potential issues. Getting an inspection by your roofing professionals can help identify the right time for this essential home improvement project.

The duration of a re-roofing project can vary based on several factors, including the size and complexity of the roof, the chosen roofing materials, and weather conditions. A residential re-roofing project usually takes a few days to a couple of weeks to complete. However, project timelines can vary significantly depending on specific circumstances. Factors such as roof size, the need for structural repairs, weather conditions and any unexpected issues that may arise during the project can all influence the timeline.

Re-Roofing offers a range of significant benefits for you as homeowners. First and foremost, it enhances the protection of your home by replacing worn or damaged roofing materials, reducing the risk of leaks and water damage. Additionally, re-roofing can improve energy efficiency, as newer roofing materials often have better insulation properties. This can result in lower energy bills over time.

Furthermore, a freshly re-roofed home can enhance curb appeal, potentially increasing your home's value and making it more attractive to potential buyers. Re-roofing also provides long-term cost savings compared to the possible cost of frequent repairs. Lastly, it allows you to update the look of your home, as you can choose from various modern roofing materials and styles to achieve the desired aesthetic.

In summary, re-roofing enhances protection, energy efficiency, curb appeal, and property value while offering long-term cost savings and a fresh, updated look for your home.

Re-roofing provides an excellent opportunity to install solar panels on your home. Combining a re-roofing project with solar panel installation can offer several advantages:

  • Seamless Integration: When done together, the roofing and solar installation teams can coordinate to ensure that the solar panels are seamlessly integrated into your new roof, providing a sleek and cohesive appearance.
  • Cost Savings: By bundling the re-roofing and solar panel installation, you may achieve cost savings compared to doing these projects separately. It's an efficient way to upgrade your roof and harness solar energy simultaneously.
  • Energy Efficiency: Solar panels can significantly enhance your home's energy efficiency. You can reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources, lower utility bills, and generate surplus electricity to sell back to the grid.
  • Environmental Benefits: Solar energy is environmentally friendly and reduces your carbon footprint. It's a sustainable choice that contributes to a greener future.

However, it's essential to plan this combined project carefully. Consider factors such as the orientation of your roof, shading, and the structural capacity of your roof to support solar panels.

Before proceeding, consult with experts who can assess your home's suitability for solar panels and provide guidance on the best approach. With proper planning and execution, you can enjoy the benefits of a new roof and solar energy generation in one comprehensive project.

When embarking on re-roofing your home, you'll have a selection of roofing materials to consider, each with unique attributes. The available options for your re-roofing project include:

  • Long-Run Iron: Long-Run Iron roofing is known for its durability and versatility. It's a popular choice due to its resistance to New Zealand's varied weather conditions and sleek, modern appearance.
  • Concrete Tile: Concrete tiles offer a classic and enduring roofing solution. They are robust and capable of withstanding the elements while providing a timeless aesthetic.
  • Metal Tile: Metal tiles combine the durability of metal with the appearance of traditional roofing tiles. They offer longevity, low maintenance, and a stylish finish for your roof.
  • Clay Tile: Clay tiles are admired for their elegance and distinctive look. They are visually appealing and known for their longevity and fire resistance.

The selection of suitable roofing material depends on your specific preferences, budget, and the architectural style of your home. Each of these materials has advantages, so explore further to determine which best aligns with your re-roofing project goals.

Re-roofing is a significant and complex home improvement project that requires professional expertise. While some aspects of maintenance can be handled by skilled homeowners as DIY projects, a complete re-roofing job is generally not recommended for inexperienced individuals.

Several factors make re-roofing challenging for DIY enthusiasts. These include:

  • Safety Concerns: Roofing involves working at heights, which can be dangerous without the proper safety equipment and training.
  • Complexity: Re-roofing involves intricate steps, including removing old materials, preparing the roof deck, and installing new roofing materials correctly. Errors in any of these steps can lead to leaks and other issues.
  • Specialized Tools: Professional roofers have specialized tools and equipment for a successful re-roofing project.
  • Warranty Considerations: Many roofing material warranties require professional installation to remain valid.
  • Local Building Codes: Roofing projects must comply with local building codes, which can be complex and vary by location.

Working with a professional roofing team with years of experience is advisable for a safe and successful project. We can ensure the work is completed to industry standards, provide warranties, and navigate any local regulations or permits required. While DIY roofing repairs may be feasible for minor issues, a complete re-roofing project is best left to professionals.

The cost of re-roofing can vary significantly based on several factors, including the size and complexity of your roof, your location, the choice of roofing materials, and any additional work required.

We recommend contacting one of our team to get an accurate estimate and expert advice for re-roofing home. They will assess your roof's condition, discuss your material preferences, and consider any unique aspects of your home.

It's important to remember that re-roofing is an investment in your home's protection and value. While the initial cost may seem significant, it can lead to long-term savings through improved energy efficiency and reduced maintenance expenses. Additionally, a well-executed re-roofing job can enhance your home's curb appeal and increase its resale value.

Yes, All of our re-roofing projects come with a Workmanship Guarantee and a manufacturer's product warranty to provide homeowners with peace of mind and ensure the quality of the work. These warranties can be categorized into two main types:

  • Manufacturer Warranties: Most roofing materials come with manufacturer warranties that cover the roofing materials themselves. These warranties vary in duration and terms depending on the material chosen. Reviewing and understanding the manufacturer's warranty for your selected roofing material is essential, as it often includes information on how to make a claim if issues arise.
  • Workmanship Guarantees: Edwards & Hardy Roofing provides a 5-year Workmanship Guarantee, ensuring the installation and labour quality.

Before re-roofing your home, discussing and clarifying the warranties and guarantees is essential. You will receive written documentation that outlines the terms and duration of these warranties. This will protect you in case any unexpected issues with your roof arise after re-roofing your most important asset.

Keep in mind that the availability and terms of warranties and guarantees can vary, so it's advisable to work with a professional and reputable roofing team like Edwards & Hardy Roofing, which stands behind their work and comprehensive warranty.
