Repair or Replace? Finding the Best Option for Your Roof

If you have noticed a leak or two in your roof, you might be wondering if it is time for a new one or if you just need to get some repairs. Especially if you aren’t the first owner of your home, it can be difficult to know whether repair or replacement is the best option. Here are a few keys to help you decide.

You Have More Than One Bad Spot

Just one spot with a small leak is usually not cause for alarm. Just one leak, or even two, can be easily repaired. But if you have multiple spots where the roof is either leaking into the house or looks to be in disrepair, you might need to think about replacing the whole roof.

Three Signs You Need to Replace Your Roof

If you have noticed wear on your roof or if you are experiencing roof problems, you might be tempted to just do a repair on your roof. However, there are some signs that you should replace the roof entirely rather than paying for repairs that will not last. Here are three signs you need to replace your roof.

Worn Shingles

Roof shingles have a lifespan, which varies depending on the type of shingles you have. When shingles reach the end of their life, they can become curled or bent at the edges. There may also be bald spots on the shingles where the granules are missing. Some shingles may actually be cracked, which poses a threat for further damage in the case of heavy storms. If your shingles are only worn in one place due to a specific problem, a repair might be sufficient. But if a large portion of your shingles are showing wear, it is probably time to replace the roof.

Problems Can Worsen
