5 Roof Replacement vs. Roof Repair Considerations

Age of Roof

Do you know when your current roof was installed? Depending on the type of roofing material used, its age may be a good indication of when to replace a roof.

If your roof is showing signs of aging and/or has suffered storm damageleaks, or other problems, it may be a good idea to consider replacing it. Replacing an older, damaged or failing roof, rather than repeatedly paying for roof repairs, can be worth the investment whether you intend to stay in your home for several decades or plan to sell soon.

Roof Leaks

leaky roof is one of the most common reasons homeowners need roof repairs or reroofing. If you’ve seen water stains inside your home that run across ceilings or run down your walls, the cause could be a leaky roof. Finding the source of the roof leak can often be tricky, but HANDAL’S ROOFING can help with the process.

Regardless of the source of your leak, it’s important to solve a leaky roof problem sooner rather than later — something that begins as a small leak can eventually lead to bigger problems, such as:

  • Mold
  • Rotting framing and roof sheathing
  • Damaged ceilings, and
  • Wet or destroyed insulation

The Extent of Roof Damage 

If you’re deciding between a roof repair or roof replacement, then it’s likely your roof has either deteriorated in appearance and/or has suffered other physical damage. Working with a HANDAL’S ROOFING can help you better understand the extent of any roof damage you may have so you can make the right decision for your home and budget.

Signs of roof damage will differ slightly between various types of roofing material but generally fall into two main categories: aesthetic damage and structural damage.

Aesthetic damage:

  • Roofing material looks old and worn
  • Moss, dark streaks or algae is growing on or in between the roofing materials

Structural damage:

  • Curled or cupped edges on asphalt or wood shingles
  • Missing granules and bald spots on asphalt shingles
  • Cracked or broken asphalt, tile or wood shingles
  • Dented or perforated asphalt, tile, wood or metal roofing components
  • Rusted metal shingles or panels

Geographical Area

Do you live in a region of the country that’s susceptible to hail storms, hurricanes, or tornadoes? If so, it’s important to replace missing shingles – or other roofing materials – immediately following a storm to help prevent future issues, such as roof leaks.

Damage from hail and falling debris can also affect your roof’s long-term performance, appearance, and ability to form a watertight roof deck.
