How To Decide Whether You Should Repair Or Replace Your Roof
Roofing projects can be expensive. If you are experiencing problems with your existing roof, it can be hard to determine whether you should repair the problem areas or replace your entire roof. Fortunately, there are a few basic rules that you can use to make the process of deciding a little bit easier.
One of the first things that you should consider is the extent of the damage to your roof. If only a small area of your roof is experiencing problems, your best bet is probably to hire a company to repair that section rather than replacing your whole roof. There are, however, some exceptions to that rule.
If your roof is extremely old, you may want to bite the bullet and replace it as soon as it starts experiencing problems. For instance, most asphalt shingles are rated to last anywhere from 20 to 25 years. If your roof is more than 20 years old and has started leaking, it might be smarter to replace the roof rather than making repairs.
Even if you repair the section that is currently experiencing problems, additional areas of the roof will most likely also start to deteriorate within just a few years. Instead of falling into the trap of having to pay for ongoing repairs for a worn and dated roof, it may be more cost-effective to replace the whole thing instead.
On the other hand, if your roof is relatively new and still has a lot of life left in it, paying for repairs rather than a full replacement is probably the best move. If you go this route, however, be sure to ask the contractor to match your existing shingles as closely as they can. The last thing that you want is to have an unsightly patch of mismatched shingles on your roof – especially since they will be there for quite a few years to come.
The condition of your roof itself can also give you some clues as to whether or not it is time to replace it. Look at the shingles closely for signs of wear. If they are cracked, missing most of their granules, or curled up at the edges, your roof is most likely ready to be replaced. You can also keep an eye on your gutters to see if they start accumulating a lot of granules from the shingles. This can signal that your shingles are nearing the end of their life.
If you are having trouble deciding whether to repair or replace your roof, you can also reach out to a qualified roofing contractor for advice. They should be willing to send someone to your home to evaluate your roof and make recommendations based on their findings.
Of course, you need to choose a trustworthy company that will be open and honest with you about which option is best. Carefully read reviews on the Internet before deciding which company to hire so that you can be sure that they are looking out for your best interests rather than trying to line their own pockets.
