Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement

The roof of your home has a very important job to do. It protects not only your home but also your family. It is important to have your roof inspected if you see or experience any roof issues. Sometimes it can be difficult to know if you need a roof replacement or just a roof repair. Oftentimes, an issue can be fixed with a less costly roof repair. But other times a roof replacement is warranted. To help you know what to expect from a roof inspection, we are including the top ten reasons you would need a roof repair and not a replacement.

  1. Missing shingles
  2. Chimney leaks
  3. Damage due to weather
  4. Minor damage from a tree
  5. Pipe boot leaking
  6. Nails popping up
  7. Cracking or blistering shingles
  8. Granule piles
  9. Lack of maintenance
  10. Attic ventilation problems

All of these issues can most likely be repaired if the damage isn’t too extensive. A dozen missing shingles can be repaired and replaced, but hundreds of missing shingles, especially if they have been missing for a long time, may require a roof replacement.
