Shingles are made of very strong and durable materials. Their purpose is to protect the rest of your home from the damage that can be caused by constant exposure to the elements. Eventually, they wear down and need to be repaired and replaced. It may be difficult to know when your roof could just use a little sprucing up and when it’s time to replace it, but here are our best tips for roof replacement.
Many people want to know exactly how often roof replacement needs to happen, but that’s a complicated question. The answer to that varies based on the material makeup of the shingles and the overall exposure to sun, wind, rain, snow, and hail. Another factor to consider is whether there have been any major accidents or natural disasters that may have caused early aging and damage.
As professionals in the roofing business, we recommend following a basic equation for determining if it is better to repair or replace your roof. We will look at the cost of roof repair and the age of the roof and show you the numerical comparison between that and how much roof replacement would cost. Based on these numbers, we would discuss the best option for moving forward with you.
Also, if you regularly have your roof repaired, then you can likely put off having a full roof replacement. Small, preventative maintenance measures can stretch your dollar a long way. If you want to know more, get in touch with us today!
