What Are The Differences Between Roof Replacement And Roof Repair?

How do you know if you need a roof repair or a replacement? Being a homeowner comes with a lot of responsibility. Taking care of your roof is one of them.  There are several factors to consider.

  • What is the extent of the damage to the roof?
  • How old is the roof?
  • Does your roof leak?
  • And more….

A roof repair would be recommended if a small section of the roof was damaged. This would include fixing leaks, replacing cracked or missing shingles or even wear and tear. Wind damage can also lead to a roof repair, rather than an entire replacement; as only replacing damaged, torn or missing shingles will be needed. When repairing a roof, make sure that any replacement shingles are the same color as the current shingles. A roof repair will often cost less than a roof replacement.

A roof replacement would be recommended if a larger portion of the roof needs to be fixed or if restoring a roof that is nearing the end of the life and simple repairs will no longer be easy. Replacing a roof will cost more than repairing a roof, but it also comes with the peace of mind that your entire roof has been repaired and you can expect it to last for decades. Plus, aesthetics and curb appeal and increase in energy efficiency.
