Elevate Your Roof: The Crucial Role of Code Compliance in Re-Roofing

Team works on installing a new roof

Embarking on a re-roofing project presents an excellent opportunity to not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property but also to bring your roof up to current building codes. At Centennial Roofing, we emphasize the importance of adhering to code requirements during a re-roof for both residential and commercial properties.

Many elements currently mandated by codes, such as flashings, ice and water shield, and drip edge, were not obligatory when your property was initially constructed. However, codes evolve to enhance safety and durability, and neglecting these updates during a re-roof can lead to potential issues down the road.

For those undergoing a re-roof through an insurance claim, it’s essential to be aware that your policy may include coverage for the additional expenses incurred by bringing your roof up to code. Whether funded through insurance or out-of-pocket, it is non-negotiable that your contractor installs the code-required items.

Code-compliant installations not only align your roof with contemporary standards but also bolster its resilience against the elements. From preventing leaks with proper flashings to enhancing ice and water protection, these code-mandated features contribute to the longevity and functionality of your roof.

Investing in a re-roof is not just about aesthetics; it’s an opportunity to fortify your property against the elements and adhere to current building standards. Trust Centennial Roofing to guide you through this process, ensuring your roof is not only visually appealing but also code-compliant for lasting peace of mind.
