How to Know Whether to Repair or Replace Your Roof

Here at Valent Roofing, we consider ourselves the roofing experts you want on your side, and we know how difficult it can be to decide between repairing or replacing a roof. Luckily, we’ve gone through everything you need to know! Read on to find out more…
Signs to Repair
Choosing to repair a roof is going to be significantly cheaper than a replacement. With this said, it is important to ask yourself some important questions before you make a final decision such as:
- Is the damage in a concentrated area?
- What caused the damage?
- How much time passed before you discovered the damage?
It is important to ask yourself these questions because then you can ensure that you don’t replace an entire roof that could have actually been repaired. After all, as long as the damage hasn’t been left to fester for months and can be found in a concentrated area then it can often be repaired fairly easily.
Signs to Replace
On the other hand, it is important to take the age of a roof and the condition of the roofing materials into consideration, as an asphalt roof that is over 30-years old tends to be nearing the end of its lifespan. This means that trying to repair any damage in order to extend the life of your roof can actually end up being more expensive than a full roofing replacement.
The last thing you want to be hit with during the festive season is an expensive roofing bill, which is why we always emphasise the importance of regular servicing and maintenance.
