If you’ve noticed problems with your rooftop lately, it may not be clear whether you should repair it or completely replace it. Luckily there are a few key indicators that show it’s time for a brand new roof.
When to Repair
When roof damage is minimal, you may need to repair or replace a small section of shingles. Oftentimes, missing or broken shingles need to be replaced due to wear and tear from weather and wind damage. Partial re-roofing is also an option when damage or leaking is significant in just one area. These short-term solutions are effective when you’re dealing with a small amount of roof damage.
When to Replace
Replacing your roof can be expensive. However, if you plan on staying in your home for many years to come, it’s worth the initial investment. You’ll know it’s time to invest in a new rooftop if your roof is over 20 years old and is leaking in multiple spots. Keep in mind that the climate you live in can speed up deterioration process of your roof, especially if you live in an area with extreme heat, rain, snow, and/or winds.
