Should You Repair or Replace Your Roof?

Repair or Replace Your Roof

When you realize there is damage to your roofing system, you are going to be faced with the decision to replace or repair your roof. Repairing your roof is often tempting because it is less expensive and less of hassle than a full roof replacement, but it is not always the correct choice.

At PRQ Exteriors, we believe that no two roofs or problems are the same and it is important to carefully assess each of our client’s roofs to determine the best course of action for their unique property. However, there are a few common factors that typically indicate whether a repair or replacement may be necessary. Today the PRQ Exteriors team wants to share those common factors with you so that you can make the most educated choice regarding your roof. Keep reading below to learn more!

Age of Your Roof

The age of your roof system is a large factor in determining whether or not to repair or replace your roof. When small issues start to arise on an older roof, that could be an indicator that the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan. Looking at each individual repair, they may seem less expensive, but once they are added together they become costly. If little repairs on an old roof start to add up, it is time to consider replacing your roof.

Climate Considerations

If you begin to notice minor roofing issues and you live in a particularly harsh climate like Colorado, you will want to consider replacing your roof sooner rather than later. When the next winter storm hits, you want to have the protection of a new roof rather than a roof in a questionable state of repair. It is also important to note that every major storm a roof endures typically takes one to two years off of the roof’s lifespan.

Roofing Materials

Consider the type of roofing materials that your roof is made from, some materials outlast others. A thirty year old slate roof for instance likely has decades of life left, where as a roof made from asphalt shingles may be past its prime and need replacing by then.

Signs of Water Damage

Water is an extremely damaging element. Once it works its way below your roof shingles, it can easily leak inside your home. Water damage is not only a hassle, but can be dangerous as well. Untreated water damage can lead to serious problems such as mold and collapsed ceilings. If you notice water damage on your ceiling or walls, you will likely want to replace your roof rather than repair it.
