Should I Repair or Replace My Roof?

When a roof is nearing the end of its life, the decision to repair or replace can be a difficult one. The roofers here at Homestead Roofing bring years of experience and promise to give you an honest estimate of your roof’s condition. At the end of the time, however, the decision to repair or replace your roof is up to you. You might want to keep these factors in mind when deciding between roof repairs and replacement.

Age of Roof

The first and most important thing to consider is the age of your roof If your roof is near the end of its life, it will need to be replaced in the very near future, which means any roof repairs are just additional costs to the inevitable replacement. A roofing contractor will perform a thorough assessment of your roof to determine its condition relative to its age.

Cost of Repairs

Sometimes the repair costs are so minimal that it makes sense to put off buying a replacement while you still can. However, there comes a point where repairs become so expensive that it actually makes more sense to invest a bit extra and buy a new roof instead. This will require you to factor in the cost of repairs and the roof’s life expectancy to determine what makes more sense financially.

Partial or Total Replacement

The decision to replace requires a further choice: install the new roof over the existing one or tear the old one off and start fresh. The choice comes down to saving money now and risking greater expenses down the road or spending more now and minimizing future expenses. The decision also depends on the type of roofing system you currently have and the condition of your roof.
