Roof Repairs vs. Replacement: Which Is Right for You?
Updated: Jun 25, 2020
Is your roof is damaged or showing signs of wear? Some homeowners struggle with the decision of whether they should pay for a repair or invest in a new roof. While it may be ok to make small repairs on a roof that is only a few years old, it’s often a better choice—and much more cost effective in the long run—to invest in a replacement.
Here are a few reasons why:
Curb Appeal Unless your roof is very new, it can be difficult to perfectly match your existing shingles. That leads to a patchwork effect that diminishes the curb appeal and value of your Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, or Norfolk area home.
Hidden Damage Can Be Missed Patching up a spot on your roof may stop a leak, but it might not reveal all the damage that’s been done. What does that mean to you? It means that your deck boards could rot or that mold issues could occur—and they may not be identified for years. That could lead to structural damage and other very expensive repairs.
You’re Going to Have to Replace the Roof at Some Point Let’s say your roof is 10 years old when you notice a leak in your attic. You could patch the spot for several hundred dollars (or more depending on the extent of the damage) or replace the roof. Since your roof is already exhibiting early signs of failure, you’re going to need a new roof in the next 5 years or so anyway, so paying for a short-term fix is almost like throwing money away. Instead, make the investment now in a roof that will provide decades of reliable performance.
