What To Consider When Deciding To Repair or Replace a Roof

When considering a roof repair or replacement, there are several important factors to take into account. Here are some key considerations:

1. Age of the Roof

This is typically the first factor to consider. If your roof is close to or has exceeded its expected lifespan (typically 20-25 years for asphalt shingles, or 50 years for metal or tile), it might be time for a replacement.

2. Extent of Damage

The nature and extent of damage will significantly influence your decision. Minor issues, like a few missing or broken shingles, can often be repaired. However, more extensive damage like a sagging roof or widespread rot or mold is a strong indicator for a replacement.

3. Cost of Repair vs Replacement

Sometimes, the cost of repairing a roof can be almost as much as replacing it, particularly if the roof is older and requires frequent repairs. You’ll want to compare the costs of both options.

4. Energy Efficiency

New roofing materials are often more energy-efficient, which could potentially lower your heating and cooling costs. If your roof is not energy efficient, replacing it could lead to savings in the long term.

5. Resale Value

If you plan on selling your home in the near future, a new roof can significantly increase your property’s value and curb appeal.

6. Local Building Codes

Some areas have building codes that may affect whether you can overlay a second layer of shingles on an existing layer, or if you have to remove the old roof first. It’s always important to check your local building codes before making a decision.

7. Material Selection

Different roofing materials (like asphalt shingles, metal, wood, slate, or tile) vary in their longevity, cost, and appearance. You’ll want to choose a material that fits your budget and the architectural style of your home.

8. Professional Inspection

A professional inspection can give you a more accurate understanding of your roof’s condition. Some problems aren’t apparent to the untrained eye.

9. Choosing the Right Contractor

It’s crucial to select a trustworthy, experienced roofing contractor who offers a solid warranty. They should be licensed, insured, and have good reviews.

Remember, while repairs might be less costly in the short term, patching a roof that really needs to be replaced could cost you more in the long run. The professionals at BLC Roofing can help guide you in making this important decision.
