With the costs of materials and labor rising steadily, it makes complete sense that many homeowners want to extend the life of their roof as long as they can before opting for replacement. If your roof has reached the stage where it is beginning to have minor issues, but is completely fixable, it only makes sense to opt for roof repair over roof replacement. However, in the long run, opting for the inevitable roof replacement may save you more money than pouring money into extensive roof repair again and again. What is right for your roof? Piney Orchard Roofing is here to educate you on how to look at your roof with a critical eye and determine whether roof repair or roof replacement is in order.
EXAMINE THE ROOF AND DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF THE ISSUE
Check all of the parts of the roof to see what damage might be there, as well of the extent of any wear and tear. Check flashing details, chimneys, pipe towers, and all parts of the roof thoroughly to be able to take stock of soft spots in the sheathing. Many times roofs do not leak exactly where the shingles are. Roofs must be examined for granular loss, and the state of their ventilation must be noted. If shingles are in good condition, and a leak is the result of run of the mill roof wear, then generally repair can be chosen over replacement.
CONSIDER THE LONG TERM COSTS OF ROOF REPAIR VS. ROOF REPLACEMENT
While it may seem like the smarter option to choose roof repair over roof replacement out of the gate, this does not take into account the potentially mounting costs of repair after repair after repair. Whether it makes more sense to opt for repair over replacement depends on the age and condition of the roof, the homeowners’ property insurance, and their financial situation.
