To Repair or Replace? That Is the Question

Over the years, have you noticed a water spot or two on your roof or your roof maybe leaked once during a terrible rainstorm? You’re not unlike many people. Things happen to the best of roofs, even though most modern roofs are designed to last you 30 years or more. If you haven’t had your roof inspected and you see more and more spots, leaks or other signs of damage, it may be time to call in a professional. But, do you need a roof repair or total roof replacement for your Dallas home?

What Determines if It Is A Repair or Replacement?

  1. The Degree of Damage. Is a small section damaged or is it a large percentage of your roof? If the damage to your roof is over 50 percent, you are likely going to need a new roof. If the degree of damage is minimal, you could only need a repair. To assess the degree of damage to your roof, you need to call a professional roofer.
  1. Age of Your Roof. If you have a roof that is more than ten years old and has damage, you may be better off replacing it than repairing it. Why? Ten years is just really a lot of time in the Texas sun and other extreme weather conditions such as wind and hail.
  1. What You Can Afford. If you can only afford a repair versus a replacement, you may be able to choose temporary fix while you plan for the full replacement. But, be aware that waiting too long may end up costing you more because of damage to walls, floors, and your foundation, not to mention, heating and cooling costs.
