Roof Damage: Repair or Replace
Roofs are generally built to last, but they take a beating from the elements. High winds, hailstorms, torrential rain, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters can wreak havoc on your roof. Fortunately, our experts stand at the ready to assess the damage to your roof and help you make the best decision moving forward, whether that’s to repair the roof or replace it.
One of the biggest questions customers have when their roof is damaged is whether they should repair the roof or replace the roof. There are a number of factors that must be considered to determine what the best course of action is.
Age of the Roof
Roofs have a certain life expectancy that is determined by several things including the roofing material and climate of the home. When determining if you plan to repair or replace your roof, you’ll want to consider where the roof is at in its estimated life expectancy. It might make more sense to repair a brand-new roof or to replace one that only has a few years left in it.
Extent of the Damage
The decision to repair or replace often comes down to how severe the damage is. Some roofs simply cannot be repaired, at least not to a standard that will last an appreciable length of time. Repairing a very small section of roofing is reasonable, but if the roof has severe damage or multiple areas of damage, you’ll likely continue to have problems with it barring a complete replacement.
Climate of the Home
If you live in an area of the country that is already susceptible to damage from natural disasters like hurricanes, tornados, and hail it’s imperative that you repair any roof damage immediately. Damage will only get worse the longer it sits, and the next time a storm comes through you may not have the option to repair anymore.
Many customers want to know if a roof repair or replacement will be covered by their insurance. This is a completely valid concern, and we will work directly with your insurance provider to allow you the best solution regarding your policy.
Aesthetics and Budget
Particularly if the damage is not being covered by insurance, the budget is one of the top considerations for many people when determining if they will have their roof repaired or replaced. This is where aesthetics come into play as well. It can be difficult to make a roof repair, particularly an extensive one, match the rest of the roof. Additionally, when a roof is damaged, it may just be the best time to bite the bullet and make the investment on a new roof. Our experts can help you balance your budget and your needs to find the best solution.
