Dr Phillips/Windermere Roofer; Replace or Repair

May 02, 2019

It’s easy to not think about the roof on your home or business. It seems to be doing its job of keeping out the rain, you hope. But then you notice a small discoloration on the ceiling and all of a sudden you can feel your bank account draining.

You are poised with a question, repair or replace? The answer depends on several variables. 

If the roof just started leaking and only affects a small portion, a better choice may be to repair. But choosing to save a few bucks by just having your roof repaired when it needed to be replaced may end up costing you more in the long run. 

If the leak has been going on for some time and you just noticed or the roof is older, the better choice may be replacing. Unfortunately, it is not always an easy choice, the professionals at Schick Roofing can help you make an informed decision, based on the damage, roofing material, and cost effective.

You’ll likely be able to repair your roof if there is a leak from an easily-identifiable source or there are only one or two shingles missing. Unfortunately, there are also signs that you’ll most likely need a replacement roof. You should talk to your roofing professional if:

  • There are multiple leaks over a widespread area
  • There are water stains on the ceiling or walls in multiple rooms
  • Asphalt shingles are curled or warped or there are many shingles missing
  • Roofing tiles are chipped, cracked, or missing
  • You want to give your home a facelift
