Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Burr Ridge roof?
Roof inspections are an extremely important practice to follow because an experienced roofing professional can identify problems like loose shingles, loose boards, leaks, cracks, rotting, and mold in their early stages — and then recommend the best course of action — which can save you a substantial amount of money in the long run.
In general, homeowners are advised to get a roof inspection at least once a year, preferably after the winter season as roofs in Burr Ridge experience harsh weather during this period.
Repairing or replacing your roof
You don’t want to pay for a new roof unless you need it, but you also don’t want to settle for repairs that don’t fix the underlying problem. Because of this, there are a variety of factors besides price you should consider when deciding between repairing and replacing your roof.
Age of your roof
If your roof is relatively new or even in the middle of its life cycle, repairs are generally the best option. Some of the early roof problems you may be experiencing such as ceiling stains are often linked to poor quality installations or defective materials. Under normal wear and tear, the lifespan of a standard roof is about 20 years. So, if your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, replacing it may be the best option — or repairs are likely to keep occurring.
Materials and widespread damage
Asphalt shingles are popular because of their durability, cost, and great aesthetic appeal. With advancements in technology, modern manufacturers are even designing premium asphalt shingles which can last for as long as you own your home.
Replacing shingles is ideal after an expert has checked if the underlayment or decking is damaged. If the damage is extensive that it spreads through the other layers of the roof or there are a few missing shingles, just consider replacing the roof with a brand new one.
Presence of granules
A new roof is considered necessary— if you notice granules in your gutters or near the bottom of a downspout.
Catastrophic storms like hurricanes, tornadoes, or even severe hail storms can cause severe damage to your roof, as well as home. In this case, you should contact a qualified roofing company to replace the entire roof as soon as possible.
Moisture or water damage signs
Discolored stains high on your ceiling wall, peeling paint and mold are all signs that moisture has made its way into your home through the decking. If there are leaks in several areas of your home, it’s usually a better idea to replace your whole roof instead of repairing or patching the damaged areas. While patching might work out, it is difficult to blend the repaired area with the existing roof and, therefore, may not be aesthetically pleasing.

The guys were all very willing to discuss any questions that I might have had and were all very courteous. The work was completed on time and they did an outstanding job. We are extremely happy with the workmanship. I will recommend Main Street to everyone I can.” – Christopher B. (Chicago Area homeowner)
Are general repairs or replacements covered by insurance?
Note: Your insurance policy may differ so please keep that in mind. It’s best to contact your insurance company directly to find out if your repair or replacement is covered.
Yes, most home insurance policies cover general damages caused by fire and storms, such as severe hail storms, hurricanes, and tornadoes. Keep in mind policies vary depending on your insurance company. Other insurers may cover the repairs and replacements in full, especially for new roofs designed with quality materials that are less than ten years old.
