Leaking Roof, Should I Repair or Replace?

When your roof starts to show signs of aging every homeowner has one question.  Should I repair / fix or replace the leaking roof?

Making the right choice on whether your roofing system needs to be replaced or repaired is very important because there will be cost consequences if a wrong decision is made.

First of all, you need to reach out to your local roofing contractor and schedule a roof inspection. Once the contractor inspects the roof, you will have two choices: to repair or replace. It is highly recommended to have more than one roofing expert inspect the roof before making your decision.


Of course, getting away with simple roof repair is the simplest option and also the least expensive option. Therefore, always ask the roofing expert how significant the damage is and if patching up the roof will extend the life for at least another 5-10 years.


Sometimes during a wind or hailstorm, only one side of the roof gets a significant amount of damage, the storm wind direction makes a big difference. This option can be pricey but still cost the homeowner less money than a full roof replacement. You can ask the roofing contractor whether a partial roof replacement is an option for you.


Depending on the age of the roof and the amount of damage, a full replacement may be the only option. Our roofing expert should be able to tell you what you need.  Either a full roof replacement or possibly a repair. With the repair option, make sure you get at least 5 years of life. Ask your roofing contractor for pictures of damage to support his findings and recommendations.
