Repair or Replace My Roof: Which One’s Better?

Repair vs Replace roofing

Your roof has protected your home from inclement weather over the years and although it hasn’t failed you yet, there may come a day when it could suddenly break. When that time comes, you’re faced with either having to repair or replace the roof. To help you with your decision, here are three questions you need to ask yourself to determine which choice is better for your predicament:

1. What’s Your Roof’s Current Situation?

Repair vs Replace roofing

Depending on the type and degree of damage your roof has sustained, one option will work better for you than the other. If only a few areas are showing signs of wear and tear, repairing them is more convenient. Fixing them in a timely manner also prevents the damage from getting worse.

However, if more than 30% of the roof has been damaged or the problem is caused by severe moisture, replacement is needed. This method is easier and cheaper than having to fix the affected area of your roof.

2. How Long Have You Had It?

If your roof is relatively new, then repairing it is your best option. Your roof is still durable enough to withstand harsh weather and won’t get damaged so easily. On the other hand, if your roof is pushing 20 years old, replacement is highly recommended.

Older roofs aren’t as strong as they used to be and will need constant repairs. Plus, replacing the roof before its warranty expires will give you the best value for your money.

3. How Much Are You Willing to Spend?

Before you make your final decision, you need to know if you have enough cash to pay for it. It’s possible that you’ll have to settle for roof repairs – even when you know that a replacement roof is what you need – because it’s what you can manage at that time. Fortunately, repairing your roof can be a temporary solution until you have enough money to have it replaced.

After answering these three questions, you should have a better idea of what your best option is. Either way, repairing or replacing the roofing system is a task you can’t do without a roofing contractor, like Advantage Roofing.
