When your roofing system is damaged, homeowners oftentimes think that the damage is something that a simple repair job can handle. What some homeowners don’t realize, however, is that there are times when a patch job on your roof simply won’t be enough and a roof replacement might be a better course of action instead. But when exactly should you have your roof repaired instead of replaced?
In this article, High Performance Homes discusses the instances when you should have a roof replaced instead of repaired.
If you’re trying to decide if your roof needs to be repaired or replaced, be sure to check its paperwork and determine how old your roof is. If you recall that your roof has more than two decades behind it, experts recommend that you have it replaced as soon as possible instead of repaired. This is because a roof that’s more than 25 years old may be approaching the end of its lifespan and will require frequent repairs at this point, which can cost you more in the long run compared to the one-time investment of a replacement project.
To replace your old roof with a newer and better one, simply turn to the roof damage repair and replacement pros of High Performance Homes.
On the other hand, if your roof was damaged enough to the point that it’s beginning to sag, it’s best that you replace the roofing system instead of repairing it. By doing so, you can prevent further damage from occurring in your home. If your roof isn’t sagging, however, make sure to have a professional examine the rest of the roofing system. If they declare that more than 40% of your roof is damaged, it’s a sign that you should have the entire system replaced as soon as you can.
