A roof is a big investment.
If you’re considering repairing or replacing it, there are many important questions to ask yourself and a qualified roofing contractor to decide which is best for your home. You must consider:
Before considering a minor repair, be sure you or a roofer examine the entire roof structure to determine other potential issues. Look in the attic for water intrusion or obvious gaps. Watch out for signs of roof damage, such as buckling shingles and damaged flashing, before those small roofing problems become serious issues. The cost of a new roof replacement may be worth it if you can avoid costly damage down the road.
How much are roof repairs?
There are many variables to consider when pricing repairs, such as the type of roof, scope of roofing repair and existing water damage, as well as any exterior features like a chimney or skylight.
Address leaks right away to avoid mold and interior water damage.
Many different areas on your roof can cause leaks, from flashing and skylights to old shingles. Even a hole in your siding or leaky windows can appear as a roof leak. This is why proper roof maintenance is so important. Water in your attic can pose a fire hazard and waste energy as insulation becomes saturated. Your roof and your home can suffer major structural damage if left unchecked.
