How to Determine If You Need a New Roof
When it comes to deciding between repairing or replacing your shingle roof, there are several factors to consider. First and foremost is the age of your roof. If your roof is a 3-tab shingle and is over 14-18 years old, replacement may be the better option, as repairs only provide a temporary solution. If your current system is an architectural shingle, that number increases to 18-23 years old.
If your shingle is not that old, another factor to consider is the damage that needs repair. If you have just a few missing or damaged shingles, then repairing them can be an affordable and practical solution. However, if there's extensive damage across multiple roof areas, it might be time to replace it.
Replacing your entire shingle roof has its advantages too! For starters, a new roof improves energy efficiency, lowering utility bills. Additionally, you're able to choose from modern materials that are eco-friendly and come with extended warranties. In addition to a new roof, you will see a reduction in homeowners insurance premiums; this can be enough to replace the roof if your insurance carrier requires it.
While repairing costs less upfront than replacing your entire shingle roof, remember that repairs often require ongoing maintenance and additional expenses down the road.
Whether you decide on repairing or replacing depends on various factors such as budget constraints, the age of the current roofing system, vs. investment potential for newer materials, but always remember preventative measures go a long way in keeping roofs healthy over time!
It's important to consult a trusted professional roofer who can provide their expert opinion on whether repairs will suffice or if a full replacement is necessary based on their thorough inspection of your roofing system.
