When To Repair Or Replace Your Roof

Dec 27, 2021 | by Dustin Allen

One question many families ask us is what they should do regarding their roof. How do you know when you need it and if you just need the roof repaired instead of replacing the entire roof? A complete roof replacement is very expensive and as a homeowner, it is important to make the right decision. For example, a small leak on your roof only needs fixing to solve the problem. However, if the damage is over a larger area, if the leak is more severe, or if mold is present, you may need to completely replace your roof.

Age of Roof
A roof can last from 20 to 30 years, depending on the level of maintenance and weather conditions it is subjected to. It can also last longer depending on its material. Before requesting a quote, homeowners should research the age of the roof and its current condition. It will be an important part of deciding between the repair and replacement of the corrugated iron roof.

When finances are tight but your roof is in dire straits, talk to a professional and see how you can delay a complete roof replacement until you are financially ready to plan for it. Sometimes repair work can temporarily fix an ongoing problem.

Looking for an Upgrade
Although roofs can last a long time, some homeowners prefer an upgrade. Older roofs tend to be very different structures from modern roofing capabilities and love updating them that way!
