Should I Repair Or Replace My Roof?
Repair vs. Replace
Sometimes you just need a few shingles replaced and other times the whole roof needs replaced. Knowing what your roof needs can save you money in the long run. Repairing part of the roof may save you money now but in a few years another part could need repaired and actually end up costing you more. Several factors go into consideration when deciding to replace or repair. A roofing contractor like Integrity Roofing and Exteriors can help you choose the best option for your home.
Although shingles are made to last many, many years, sometimes strong wind or other damaging factors can cause a few shingles to come off. Replacing a couple shingles can have your roof looking beautiful again. If you have left over shingles, feel free to nail down a few shingles here and there. If there is damage to more than a couple or to the under lining of the roof then contact your local roofing contractor immediately. Integrity Roofing and Exteriors offers free roofing estimates to those living in Paducah, Kentucky. The damage to your roof can only get worse the longer you wait, so call your contractor as soon as possible. They will be able to give you a proper assessment of the damage and an estimate of how much it will cost to fix.
If there are more than a few shingles missing but the rest of the roof is fine then it will just need patched up. This is not always the best looking option because the new shingles will not have the same wear on them as the old ones. A patched roof is very noticeable from the street. There is also a chance that the roof will need repaired again a few months or years later. A roofing contractor should be able to tell you whether it needs patched but sometimes it is time for a new roof.
So you’ve decided that the damage is too much and it’s time to replace the roof. Some people ask if they can just put the new roof over the old roof. Although it may be cheaper, it will cause you more problems than solve. If your roof has a leak it will be twice as hard to find with two layers of roofs. It will also be much more expensive to replace if you need another new roof down the road. If you want an expert’s opinion, we say gut the whole roof and start over. It’s best to start off with a clean slate. Integrity can get those living in Paducah, Kentucky a free roofing quote. Click the link or give us a call at (618) 294-8503.
