Replacement & RepairSometimes it is possible to repair a roof, rather than replacing it. There are benefits of both types of improvement projects, let Rock & Tait help you determine what is the best choice for your home.
Repair or Replace?
Not all home improvement situations are cut and dry. Sometimes it is very possible to repair a roof rather than replace the whole thing. If you have a problem with your roof, the route you take could depend on several factors, including the type of damage and what percentage of the roof needs repair.
In some cases, replacing a small amount of shingles is all you need to restore the function of your roof. However before you replace any shingles, it is important to have a professional inspect your roof to determine if any of the underlaying or decking is damaged. If the damage to your home is extensive it is likely a better idea, and probably a better value, to replace the entire roof rather than a few shingles.
Patching Damaged Areas
Many homeowners prefer to patch damaged areas if possible, rather than replacing the whole thing. Worn or damaged shingles should easily be able to be removed, and new ones can be slipped into place. This could add years to the life of your roof, without spending a large amount of money.
Replacing the Existing Roof
Sometimes replacing an existing roof is simply the better option. We recognize it can be a huge expense, but it can also relieve you from worry for years and years. Our experts can take care of the entire roofing process quickly and reliably, and you’ll have one less thing to worry about the next time a storm blows through.
My roof is leaking! Does that mean I need to replace it?
There are numerous reasons your roof could be leaking like damage to your shingles, watertight sections between your chimney or vent pipes could have come loose, clogged gutters, or more! We will visit your home to determine if a roof replacement is needed, or if we are able to fix a different issue causing the leak.
Is fixing my roof cheaper than replacing the whole thing?
It is possible that fixing a section of your roof could be cheaper than replacing the whole thing, however will that fix your problems for the long term? Sometimes a fix now might lead to more work down the road. We can help you determine what plan is best for you depending on the budget you’re working with and the goals you have for your home.
What causes my roof to break down?
There are many things that could lead to problems with your roof, including severe weather, exposure to sun, and mildew growth. Darker colored roofs tend to wear out more quickly than lighter colored roofs.
