Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Darien roof?
It’s ultimately up to you as the homeowner to decide how often you’d like to have your roof inspected, however, there are some guidelines we recommend following:
Composite & asphalt shingles require professional inspections once every three years. Wooden shingle roofs should be inspected once every two to three years, and tile roofs should be inspected once every five years.
If the damage to your roof is not serious, your contractor will likely recommend a simple repair.
Typically, an inspector will begin by examining your roof’s exterior along with the conditions of the boards in your attic. This would help him determine whether or not moisture has penetrated the roof’s decking.
Depending on the damage, your inspector will then decide whether it’s a good idea to mend the leaks or patch them. Generally, patching is only done if the home owners want’s to avoid a full replacement, this is because the look of patching isn’t as appealing although the functionality is virtually the same. In addition, a patched roof will have to be replaced in the future, which, depending on the quality of the fix, could lead to problem in the future.
If the inspector detects problems like curling or buckling of edges, they will usually recommend a replacement. Roof replacements are the best option for dealing with problems like granules on the ground or in the gutters; it’s actually a sign of tearing of the tiny pebble-like structures coating the exterior of a roof shingle. Finally, sagging roof, you should consider a roof replacement asap as it can be a danger to you and your family.

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.
Usually, an all-perils homeowner’s insurance policy will cover roof repair or replacement costs regardless of the age of the roof if the damage occurs naturally. If you require roofing services because your existing roof has exceeded its intended lifespan, your homeowner’s insurance policy will likely not pay for the repair or replacement because the responsibility of maintenance at the point falls on the homeowner.
During summer, Darien homes are exposed to heat, and during the winter, they are often exposed to heavy ice and snow storms. If your roof gets damaged due to any of these forces, then your homeowner’s insurance will likely cover the cost of repairs.
