Should I Repair or Replace My Roof

Are you asking yourself “should I repair or replace my roof?” RRG Roofing can help you out. Roof replacement vs. roof repair decisions can prove complicated and require a proper assessment of your roof conditions.


Why Choose Roof Replacement

  1. Your current roof’s lifespan is over.

Roofing, like asphalt roofing, consists of a 20-year life span and needs replacement after that.

  1. Your current roof isn’t compliant with current building codes.

Sometimes your building does not match the current building code and can cause trouble during the selling process. So, it’s vital to replace it to keep it up to date.

  1. Your roof has extensive damage.

Some damages cannot be covered by simple repairing, e.g., damage due to falling trees. In this case, full roof replacement is necessary.

  1. Damage has occurred from severe weather.

Tornadoes or hurricanes can cause significant damage to your roof, resulting in full replacement. A natural disaster can cause structural damage to a home that is not immediately visible. Any type of disaster should trigger an inspection of your roof.

  1. You want to improve your home’s looks and value.

A new roof improves your home’s beauty and functionality. Roof replacement adds curb appeal to your home and makes it more attractive to buyers.

Why Choose Roof Repair

Roof repair is preferable to roof replacement for the following reasons:

  1. The damage is only minor.

If there is minor damage to the roof, a full replacement is not necessary. Roof repair is better than a replacement for isolated damage. It is often possible to repair your roof instead of replacing it if damaged by less than 30%.

  1. Save cash.

To save money, you should repair your roof whenever possible instead of replacing it.

  1. Your roof life is not up.

Rather than replacing your roof, you may choose roof repairs if it has just been replaced or if it is beyond its useful life. Make sure your current roof lasts as long as possible. In most cases, homeowners buy new roofs only once or twice.

  1. Roof repairs are convenient.

It’s easier to repair than to replace your roof. Repairs can be achieved on short notice with a roofing company, but total roof replacements require planning and scheduling in advance.

  1. Protect your investment.

Repairing your roof protects your largest investment, your home. Keep it well maintained and in good working condition.

Benefits of Roof Repairs

  1. Improve energy savings.

As you repair your roof, you will save energy since your roof is well insulated, which means your home is well protected.

  1. Prevent more complex problems.

You prevent small problems from cascading into larger ones by fixing your roof.

  1. You eliminate leaks.

Keep your interior dry by repairing your roof. Repairing your roof keeps your home or business dry by draining water properly.

  1. Keep your property safe.

A properly repaired and functioning roof will keep your home or business safe, healthy, and compliant with building codes. Tenants will be more likely to stay with you if your roof is in good condition.

Signs of Roof Damage

Asphalt Shingle Damage

A storm can often cause cracks, buckles, or damage to asphalt shingles. Your roof may be less protected if its granules start flaking off.

Roof Leaks

Symptoms of roof leaks include watermarks on the ceiling of the top floor of your home, which indicates you should contact a roofer ASAP.

Missing Shingles

The protective layer of your home can be compromised when asphalt shingles go missing.

Squirrel Damage

In addition to tearing up your roof shingles, squirrels can chew through your roof decking. Their damage to gutters, soffits, and fascia makes them a significant risk of entering your house. Insulation and electrical wiring in your attic can be ruined by them.
