If you keep maintaining your roofing system regularly, you can be sure that it will protect your home and your family from the outdoor elements. You’ll occasionally pay for repairs throughout its lifespan, but as it gets older, it can become more frequent. Sometimes, it can even get damaged beyond repair before the end of its lifespan. If this is the case, it may be better to consider a full roof replacement!
Choosing whether to keep paying for repairs or get a new roofing and gutter installation can depend on a few factors. However, it’s usually more practical to fully replace your roofing system if you’re currently facing some of these problems:
Too Much Roof Damage
Paying for repairs is necessary during roof maintenance. But a full replacement can sometimes be more cost-effective especially if your roof sustained significant damage from severe weather. Paying just for storm damage repairs can get costly, sometimes even more than a full replacement! Certain types of damage aren’t easily repairable either such as roof sag. Even with extensive repairs, your safety is still at risk as it may collapse unexpectedly.
If some components within your roofing system’s structure are damaged by rot, they need to be replaced as soon as possible. If left unaddressed, the damage can spread further into your home. Not only will it compromise your roof’s effectiveness in keeping out the elements, but it can also lead to an even more costly replacement!
Your Roof is Too Old
You can expect to pay for a few minor repairs as they’re necessary during routine maintenance checks. But if your roof is already around 15 years or more, some of its roofing components may already be near the end of its effective lifespan. This can lead to more frequent repairs and you’ll come to a point wherein it isn’t practical anymore unless you consider a full replacement. It helps to keep records of your roof’s maintenance and installation history so that you can determine when’s the best time for a full replacement.
