In the midst of tax season, the big question on everyone’s mind is this: what should you spend your tax return on this year? While a down payment on a sporty convertible or a trip to the Bahamas may be calling your name, it is always a wise decision to invest in something that will pay off in the long run. Investing your refund back into your home is a great way to ensure it is well-spent. Your roof is one of the most critical components in protecting your home.

Sometimes, you can put an overlay on a roof to fix problems. In other cases, however, you may have to have the whole thing torn off and redone. This is sometimes a code issue. There are instances where the damage to a roof is just too bad to make an overlay a good option.
An overlay can be done when there is only one layer of roofing and when the damage isn’t that bad. The advantagesof doing an overlay include:
Less time to complete
Less waste to dispose of
A good overlay job can last a very long time and, provided the decking underneath the roof is in good condition, your roof should be perfectly serviceable and attractive. When the damage is too far-gone you will want to go ahead and have a tear off done.
