Roof Is Leaking. Should I Repair Or Replace?

When a roof is starting to show signs of aging every homeowner has one question: Should I repair or replace the roof?

Making the right decision on whether the roof needs to be replaced or repaired is very important because there will be cost consequences if a wrong decision is made.

First of all, you need to contact your local roofing contractor and schedule a full roof inspection. Once the contractor inspects the roof, he should be able to tell you whether the roof needs to be replaced or can be repaired. It is highly recommended to have more than one roofing expert inspect the roof before making your final decision.

Roof Repair

Of course, getting away with simple roof repairs is the simplest option and least expensive option. Therefore always ask the roofing expert how significant is the damage and if patching up the roof can extend the life of it for another 5-10 years.

Partial Roof Replacement

Sometimes during the wind or hail storm, only one side of the roof gets a significant amount of damage, depending on the wind direction during the storm. This option can be pricey but still cost the homeowner a lot less money than a full roof replacement. You can ask the roofing expert whether a partial roof replacement could be an option for you.

Full Roof Replacement

Depending on the age of the roof and the amount of damage to it your roofing expert should be able to tell you if you need a full roof replacement or can extend the life of it with simple roof repairs. Ask your roofing contractor if he took any pictures of the damage that could support his findings.
