Your roofing system protects your home from weather damage and adds character to your entire household. However, your roof will deteriorate over time after being exposed to snow, heat and gusty winds after many years. Should you call for a roof repair or replacement project once it comes to this?
Should You Repair Your Roof?
One common sign of roof damage is roof leaks. When left unrepaired, a small leak could grow and cause significant water damage to your home. However, if a leak is small and isolated, this can be fixed by a simple roof repair job that won’t need any major replacements.
Should You Replace Your Roof?
If you want a new roof, then roof replacement is the way to go. This is a great option if you notice that you’re actually spending more on maintenance in the long run. There will come a time when maintaining a roof is actually more expensive than having it replaced altogether. Also, you should replace your roof if it has sustained severe or irreparable damage. Some of these include:
- Huge leaks
- Severe water damage
- Crumbling roofing materials
- Deteriorated appearance
- Curling or buckling shingles
Overall, the decision is based on the extent of the damage. If the damage is minor enough that it won’t compromise other parts of your roof, then roof repairs would suffice. If the damage is widespread or has affected the majority of your roofing system, then a roof replacement is necessary.
