Is your roofing system looking worn down or showing signs of damage? If so, the question is: can you get by with repairs or do you need to replace your roof? This dilemma can be difficult for homeowners to resolve on their own, but with guidance from a trusted professional you’ll soon have a clear answer.

Does Your Roof Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?

About Roof Repair

If your roof is not at the end of its projected service life and the damage isn’t too widespread, chances are your roofer will recommend repairs. Roof repairs are often associated with patching holes that cause leaks, but your roofing company may also remove entire panels to correct such damage.

Repair is a good solution provided the damage hasn’t spread throughout the roof’s innermost layers or a significantly large area. A few missing shingles or damaged flashing are problems that can be addressed through simple repairs, leaving the rest of the roofing system untouched.

About Roof Replacement

Roof replacement involves tearing off your shingles, inspecting the underlying components of your roof and conducting any repairs, and then installing new shingles. It is usually done when there is an issue that can’t be fixed with simple repairs or if the roof is at the end of its projected service life. Roof replacement is generally more costly than repairs, but it provides a longer-term solution.
