Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacements

Feb 26, 2024

When the roof of your home is looking worse for wear or underperforming, you may find yourself stuck with a decision: Do I need a roof repair or a full roof replacement? It’s a fair question, as you’re likely hoping you can take care of the issue at hand with a simple roof repair given that it’s a cheaper option and can be completed in less time. However, there are times when a repair isn’t enough and you’ll need a replacement in order to yield the most curb appeal and best possible protection for your home, your loved ones, and you. Luckily, Roofing Done Wright is here to provide you with a guide for deciding whether a roof repair or roof replacement is in order at your home.

The First Step In Deciding Whether You Need a Roof Repair or Roof Replacement

It only makes sense that the first step toward deciding on a roof repair or roof replacement is to determine what the problem really is with your system. In some cases, it’ll be obvious. Maybe it’s missing or damaged shingles, a leak, or loose granules on the ground or in your gutters. At other times, maybe it won’t be so clear. Either way, your best bet is to first get a quick reading of what’s going on and then turning to an expert for a full inspection. When you call a professional, they’ll be able to give you a full rundown of what’s going on with your roof and the next steps you should take to resolve the issue or issues.

When You Should Go With a Roof Repair

If your roof is still relatively new and the damage to it isn’t extensive, you’re more than likely going to be OK with investing in a simple roof repair. For example, if you’re just dealing with a basic leak, a roof repair expert will be able to take care of that in no time and get your roof back to its optimal condition. The same can be said if you have a missing shingle or two because of some severe weather that rolled through the area. Assuming there’s no structural damage and the system is otherwise in good condition, you can get away with an easy repair to get everything back to looking and performing its best.

When You Should Elect for a Full Roof Replacement

Now, you’ll certainly want to invest in a roof replacement if your current system is damaged beyond repair. That’s a given. But there are other scenarios that exist where it might make more sense to opt for a replacement over a repair. For one, if your roof is already aging and nearing the end of its lifespan, you might be better off putting the money you were going to spend on repairs toward a replacement. Biting the bullet and doing so now could save you money down the line, as you might run the risk of needing several more repairs before you finally decide to get a replacement.

The other scenario that would call for a roof replacement over a repair is if your repair is going to cost too much. In some cases, you may find that a repair that you need could cost a sizable chunk of what a new roof would cost. If you find yourself in that situation and your roof is getting up there in age anyway, a replacement is probably your best bet.

This company did a great job! I would definitely hire them again. Houston helped us pick out everything for our new roof and gutters. He was great. He knows a lot about the roofing business and was very helpful. Skyler was the onsite supervisor when our new roof was installed. He was also great and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with our new roof and gutters.
