when replacing brakes, do you need to replace the rotors as well or can you have them resurfaced?

If there is enough rotor material left to resurface, Usually the repair shop will measure the rotor and tell you if the rotor can be resurfaced.

There is a minimum allowable thickness for rotors so they'll need to be measured. Many newer cars have a softer rotor material compared to the brake pad material and it's not uncommon to need rotors with pads. If there is enough material (thickness) in the rotors, they can usually be machined. Policies on machining rotors depends on the brand of vehicle in many cases
