When it comes to terminology around construction or building a home, several terms are often used interchangeably. Even though two terms may sound similar or essentially provide the same thing, they are, in fact, very different. Two roofing phrases that are frequently used in place of one another are new construction roofing and roof replacement. 

While both of these provide the customer with a brand new roof, the processes behind each are very different. As a homeowner, it is your duty to understand what you need and what you can expect from each of these. Craven Construction has been providing professional roofing services to the entire East Valley for over two decades. We’re here today to help you understand these two items a bit more.

What is a Roof Replacement? 

A full roof replacement includes tearing off everything on the roof and replacing it all with new roofing material, pieces, and parts. A roof replacement is done on existing houses or buildings that are in need of a new roof. 

While a roof replacement is different from a new construction roof, you still will have several decisions to make during the process. You may have the option to change the roofing material, if you want, alter the slope, add dormers, and change the look of the house. Discussing what is best for your home and roofing needs with your local roofer will help the roof replacement process go as smoothly as possible.

What is New Construction Roofing? 

New construction roofing refers to designing and building a roof for a brand new home or building. The roofing structure is one the most important items of a new construction project as it can dictate several other decisions during the build process. Many home and business owners do not know that they can hire their own roofer to install the roof. There are several advantages to hiring your own roofer as they will know exactly what framework, underlayment, and materials are best for your structure.

What to Expect? 

If you are planning on building a new home or building, be prepared to discuss and make a lot of decisions around the roof. Having your roofer with you from the beginning of the build process will help you as you get further into it. A roofer will start with a thorough examination of the house plans to determine the roof deck, insulation, and roofing material. 

The roofer should take into consideration the climate, location, and what you want for your new home, including the aesthetic, when providing the best roofing solution. Working with your new construction builder, your roofer will provide essential details, such as structural support needs, ventilation requirements, and slope needs.

Things To Consider For Your New Construction Roof

With a new construction roof, it is essential to know that you have options! When designing a home, the choices are endless, and sometimes overwhelming. Leaning on your roofer will help you decide what is best for your home and what you want. They should guide you to help determine the best material selection, shape of the roof, and provide direction on other essential items for the new roof system. 

Consider installing an energy efficient roof, or what some may call a cool roof. An energy efficient roof will help keep your home at a comfortable temperature inside, regardless of the temperature outside. This can help keep your energy bills lower as your cooling system will not need to run as much.
