It can be difficult to choose between repairing your old roof and replacing it with a new one. While it costs more to replace your roof, there are many benefits in the long run. Things to think about when deciding between the two options include:
The Extent of Roof Damage
As mentioned previously, the amount of roof needing repair is a major factor. If it’s a small percentage of an otherwise sound roof, repair it. If damage or wear is present in multiple areas or a high percentage of the roof, then replacement is likely the way to go.
The Age of Your Roof
Age is the primary factor in deciding whether to repair or replace your roof. Asphalt shingles can last up to 25 years. If yours are near that age, a roof repair may not be a viable option.
