Should You Replace or Repair Your Roof?
If you are having problems with your roof leaking or looking worn, you may be wondering if it is time to replace it, or if you can simply have it repaired. To determine if your roof needs an easy fix or if it’s time to replace it all together, consider these different factors.
The age of your roof. If your roof is under 20 years old, you should consider a repair over replacement. If your roof is older and nearing the end of its life (asphalt roofs last about 20-30 years on average), it may be time to consider a full roof replacement.
Damage to the roof. If your roof is only slightly damaged, it should be relatively easy to make repairs. If your roof is heavily damaged and missing a significant amount of shingles, if the shingles are damaged, or if the shingles are curling, it’s time to replace your roof.
Your budget. If you don’t have a budget for a full roof repair, small repairs will help protect your roof from further damage over time. Just make sure to be wary of trouble spots and take action to repair any problems as soon as they arise. Waiting to fix any leaks or trouble areas could compromise the overall structure of your roof.
