During a routine roof inspection and maintenance check, you’ll sometimes need to pay for necessary repairs to keep your roof in good condition. However, minor patchwork and other repair jobs may not always fix your roof, especially if several problems are found on your roof or if the damage is too significant. Here’s why settling for roof repairs won’t be enough:
Why You Should Consider a Roof Replacement
If you have missing shingles, water leaks or any other minor roofing problems, you won’t think twice about getting them repaired during maintenance. And if you have more than one leak in your attic, and they’re already dripping down your ceiling areas, extensive repairs and patchwork may even be necessary. But this may not always be the best solution as it can be difficult to find the origin of the water leak. So, if there are too many issues with your current roof, having it fully replaced will be more cost-effective.
How to Determine if a Roof Replacement Is Needed
If your roof is only a few years old and is regularly maintained, then a few occasional repairs can be expected. However, if an extreme weather event significantly damages it, just settling for repairs may not be enough. For instance, if there’s an active leak with some sections exposed to the elements, it will need immediate repair work by a roofing contractor to mitigate the damage. And depending on the amount of damage sustained, you’ll only end up with more costly repairs.
Another indication is when you notice that you’ve been paying for roof repairs more frequently. This will become more common as your roof ages, especially if it’s around 20 years old or more. To avoid wasting money on frequent repairs, it’s more cost-effective to have your roof fully replaced!
