As we approach Spring here in Central Florida, the big question many people ask, Should I repair or replace my roof? You may have been putting off those small, not so obvious repairs, hoping they would resolve themselves, but now is the time to take care of them.
The answer, Can I get by with repairing the damage on my roof or do I need to replace it? Depends on a couple of things.
How Old Is Your Roof?
If your roof is over 20 years old and having some issues, it may be wise to invest in a new roof. If your roof is less than 20 years old and is expected to have 10 to 15 more years of service, repairing it may be most cost effective.
What Type Of Damage Does Your Roof Have?
If you have a shingle missing as a result of one of Central Florida's torrential downpours, replacing it may be all that is needed. But if you are missing several shingles, noticed lots of granules missing or some of the shingles are buckling or curling, you may be better off replacing the roof.
What Are Your Budgetary Needs?
Obviously, a repair or patch will be less expensive than a new roof. But if you are looking for an approach that will enable you to 'fix it and forget it', then a new one may be best.
If the damage to the roof is just in one area and a simple patch won't do, you may consider a partial re-roofing. Keep in mind, it may not blend seamlessly with the existing roof and it can end up costing more per square basis than a new roof.
Repair the Problems or Replace the Roof?
An experienced roofer can easily save you money by knowing what can be salvaged and what can't (especially if your home is older). Your roof may just need a few repairs instead of replacing. Schick Roofing provides inspections to determine your roof's remaining life expectancy and assessment.
