Roof repair vs roof replacement?  What should you do?  Many homeowners must ask themselves that question.  To answer this question, have your roof inspected by a BBB certified professional.

What Should You Do?

roof repair vs roof replacementA thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of your roof can determine if repairing your roof will extend the life of your roof, or to further damage.  If your roof is extensively damaged, it is a better value to replace your roof. It is invaluable to check the condition of the underlayment or decking.   If moisture has made it through to the underlayer or decking, it is best to replace your roof.  If you do decide to repair your roof, consider the location and the size of the damaged area. It may be difficult to match the old shingles.  If the damage is large and in a conspicuous area, it may be wise to replace your roof. The look of your roof can drastically affect the appearance of your home.

Time for a New Roof

It is time to replace your roof when:

  •         You see signs of moisture or water damage
  •          The damage was a result of a recent disaster
  •         Age of roof is approaching or past 20 years old
  •         There are more than 2 layers of shingles

A new roof may be cheaper in the long term.  Once a crew is on-site with scaffolding, ladders, and equipment, it may be most cost-effective to get the job done all at once.  New roofing materials last longer, now lasting up to 50 years.  It is invaluable to tear off an old roof and to evaluate the condition of the roof deck.
