Things to Consider Before a Residential Roof Repair

It can be difficult to choose between repairing your old roof and replacing it with a new one. As a leading Salt Lake City roof repair company, we can help you choose. 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.

American Roofing is here to make all your residential roof repairs. We can also help you decide the best course of action for your roof and your needs.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired American Roofing after experiencing some hail damage to the roof of our home. The overall process was great. American Roofing was quick at getting an estimator to give us a price, helped us navigate our home owners insurance process, and were right on time starting the project. We did run into a few bumps throughout the process and American Roofing really stepped up to make sure it was resolved timely and to our satisfaction. They answered calls on weekends and after hours and put getting these fixed at the top of their list. I have been extremely happy hiring American Roofing and would recommend them to everyone. They are a longstanding company and Get Gephart recommended for a reason. Hire these guys.

We have had the best experience with American Roofing! From the initial meeting with Andrew, to the finished roof on my home, we had absolutely no problems. We were very pleased that the workers cleaned their mess up each day before they left, and they had my beautiful roof done within 3 days. The cost was exactly as quoted, with no surprises. I highly recommend this company to all my friends and family!

FAQs

Yes, you can certainly repair a roof without a full replacement. We’ll discuss some factors that would make roof replacement more advisable, but repair is often the better option.

For example, if your roof has sustained damage to a relatively small and isolated area, it likely makes more sense to repair that area. This is often the case with fallen tree limbs. If the impact only damaged where the limb hit the roof, there’s no need to replace the entire roof if it’s in good shape.

Likewise, if wind blew off a few shingles, repairing the affected area makes the most sense. This is only the case if the rest of the roof is in good shape and can be expected to last for years to come.

There are instances where putting new shingles over old shingles can be done. However, there are pros and cons to this choice. The benefits of covering old shingles result primarily from the cost savings and convenience of not having the old roof torn off. The new layer can also add an extra barrier to the elements.

However, issues can arise if the old shingles have leaks or decay beneath them that can compromise the structure below. American Roofing can take a look at your current roof and help you decide the proper course of action.

Your home insurance won’t cover roof leaks that are caused by natural wear and tear, or lack of proper maintenance. If the cause of the leak is a covered peril in your plan, then your home insurance should help you pay for the cost of repairs. For example, if the leak is caused by hail damage and this is a covered peril in your policy, then insurance will help pay for the repairs.

Home insurance is generally there to assist you with sudden, accidental damage, rather than damage caused by general weathering and aging. Some home insurance policies have specific exclusions that change from policy to policy.
