Roofing 101: Should I Repair or Replace My Roof?

The roof is an important element you need to keep an eye out for!
After all, your roof is one of the main lines of defense that you have to protect yourself against the weather.
Sadly, due to the wear and tear, there will come a time when your roof will show signs of damage and will no longer be as effective as it once was.
You will then have to face the question: should I repair it or replace it entirely?
This can be a tricky question to answer (especially when one is not knowledgeable about roofing), but is it possible so long as you consider the following factors:

Roof´s Age: The roof’s age can indicate when to replace or repair it.

If it shows signs of aging or has suffered many problems, consider replacing it. It can be worth the investment, especially if you intend to stay in your for several years.

Roof´s Damage:  Another indicator is the damage the roof shows.

The signs will differ depending on the type of roofing material, but it will generally be either aesthetic or structural damage. The type and amount of damage will help determine your choice.

The Geographical Area: Although not related to the roof itself, the geographical area where the roof of the building is located can also help make your decision.

Is the roof´s building located in an area affected by hail storms, hurricanes, or tornadoes?

Depending on the answer, you will then decide what is more effective to protect said building from future natural disasters that could occur in the future.

These are good indicators to base on, but we suggest getting your roof repaired if it only has minor to moderate damage in specific areas of the roof.

However, if the damage displayed is too much or you feel that the added-up costs of multiple repairs will be a lot in the long run, we suggest replacing it.

Either way, depending on your choice, it is clear that you will need the help of a professional roofing contractor, and this is where Gentry Flat Roof can help you!
