Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement.
Think about the following when considering getting your roof repaired or replaced:
- Type: The kind of roof you have is a major determining factor when it comes to fixing a roof versus repairing a roof. While homeowners can effectively repair minor shingle damage, a roof replacement is typically needed if larger area of shingles needs repairs. Always contact a qualified roofing contractor when it comes to replacing a roof, particularly flat roofs.
- Damage: Repairing a few torn or curled shingles can help extend the life of your roof. If more than 30% of the shingles on a roof need repairs, however, your roof needs replacing. Other situations that warrant a roof replacement include holes in the roof, like after a windy storm, or major damage.
- Age. Unlike a fine wine, a roof gets worse with age. Roofs last about 15 to 20 years, so it may be more cost effective to repair younger roofs. Alternatively, a roof that is pushing the age of 20 usually needs a complete replacement.
Making the right decision about repairing or replacing a roof can save you time and money when all is said and done. Request a roof inspection to help make this decision easier.
