Roof Repair Norcross
Home owners that have roof damage from a storm or other event may wish to consider repairing their roof instead of replacing it. In many cases, a certified contractor can come out and make an emergency repair and the roof works as good as new. In other cases, a repair to the roof may not be the right choice.
To decide if repairing your roof is the right choice, or if a total replacement is necessary, you should consider the following points:
- 1. The extent of the repair. Is it a small repair from a quick storm or other issue or is it a large repair or multiple repairs caused by serious storm damage? Was your home exposed to extensive periods of rain without protection, like during a tropical storm or hurricane? The amount of damage may be an indicator if it is really worth the repair or if the roof should be replaced.
- 2. How many repairs have been made. Do you feel like you are calling a contractor every time there is a thunderstorm? Is your roof continually springing leaks? Having a repair completed may seem like the cost effective way to manage your roofing problems, but in the long run it may cost you more than replacement.
- 3. How old is your roof? Is the repair you are going to have completed a one-time thing or is it just the beginning of a series of repairs that will need to be done because of the age or condition of your roof? This is a very serious question you must ask yourself if you want to make the best financial choice for your home.
- 4. Is it an emergency repair or one that just randomly happened? An emergency repair would be one that occurs from storm damage or some other similar event. An ordinary repair is something that breaks over time. If it is considered an ordinary repair you may want to have your roof inspected because the entire roofing system may be at risk. Problems with your roof do not appear without reason.
