3 Times a Roof Replacement Makes More Sense Than a Repair

So you've noticed an issue or two with your roof. Maybe some curled shingles or black streaking.

Now what? Should you replace the entire roof or save some money and simply repair the noticeably damaged areas?

Well, it depends...

Here are three scenarios where replacing your roof makes more sense than just temporarily repairing it.

Your Roof Is Getting Old

The typical asphalt shingle has a lifespan of about 15 to 30 years. If your roof is within this age range, issues will begin to occur more frequently and will only become worse. At this point, repair work is a temporary fix that can become costly as issues continue to appear. A roof that is over 15 years old should be replaced, not repaired.

The Damage Is Spreading

Missing or damaged shingles, moss growth and black streaking are all solid indicators that there could be severe unseen issues with your roof. However, we never know the full extent of damage just by looking from the outside. If you notice leaks in your ceiling or discoloration and mold in your attic, you need to replace your roof immediately.

You Want To Sell Your Home

Unless you're trying to scare away potential buyers, an old or damaged roof is not a good look. A new roof not only increases your home's value, it also can make buyers choose your home over others on the market. It's best to replace your roof if there are any severe issues or it's getting older before putting your home on the market.
