Having an entire new roofing system installed on your home may sound dreadfully expensive. However the truth is, it may be your best option in the long run. Some roof repairs are actually more expensive to complete when you consider cost per square foot than having the entire roof replaced.
If you need a quick-fix for emergency roof damage, repairing makes sense. But if this is a repair for something that has been slowly causing damage to your home, replacement may be the better option. In the long run, it will also make your house more attractive as well because your roof will not have an obvious spot of new shingles where the repair was made.
To determine if the replacement is your best financial choice, you will want to consider the following factors:
Age of the Roof. Is your roof over 15 years old? If so, it may better to replace the whole system. Older roofs will begin to have issues over time and it may be in your best interest to stop them all before they start.
Extent of Repair. Is it a small patch repair or is it an extensive repair? If you have serious damage to your roof it may be better to replace the entire system to protect the integrity of the roof. A weakened roof system can be more susceptible to damage in the future.
Building Codes. With so many serious storms moving through the area in recent years many changes have been made to building codes to upgrade roof strengths and durability. If you have an older roof it may no longer be in compliance.
Signs of Damage. Are there other signs of potential damage to your roof that may mean additional repairs in the near future? Does your roof look faded and worn? Are there bare spots on the shingles? Are the shingles bulging or curling at the ends? All of these are signs of a damaged roof that will need replacement soon anyways.
Working with a quality contractor will help you make the right choice for the roofing project on your home.
