What Does Roofing Cost in Frankfort IL?
An inspection is the first step in deciding whether you need a repair or a full replacement. An inspection ranges from free to around $1,000. This variation in price shows that various factors affect inspection costs. For instance, your roof’s age, material, the size of your property and the roof’s shape are some of the determining factors. Also, different roofing companies charge different costs, and therefore your company of choice also matters.
When it comes to repairs, costs range from as low as $250 going as high as $4,000. For minor repairs, prices range from $250 to $1,000, and up to $4000 for extensive repairs. For your average roof replacement, the costs may range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the complexities of the job, the size of the project, materials used and permits.
Should You Inspect, Repair, or Replace Your Frankfort Roof?
The Importance of a Roof Inspection
Your roof is as important to the resilience of your home as a foundation. It shields your family and belongings from severe weather and also contributes to the structural integrity. The importance of a sound roof cannot be overstated. Scheduling a Frankfort IL roofing inspection will help detect any problems before they grow into bigger ones which can save you costly repairs or replacements in the long run. Also, a damaged roof poses a great danger to you and your family. Having it inspected ensures that all problems are attended to and the risks eliminated.
A Repair or Replacement?
There are various factors which can help you determine the best option for you. Age is one of the factors. Different roofing materials have different lifespans. If your roof is at the end of its lifespan and damages are evident, a replacement may be the most appropriate. Making repairs to an aged roof may not make sense because if you repair one section, another may start experiencing damages in the next few months.
Another factor is the condition of the roof. If your Frankfort IL roofing is damaged at only one section, or only a few shingles are missing, making repairs is easy and less costly. However, if the damage is evident in several areas, or a storm has blown off your shingles, then a replacement may be required. An inspection evaluates the condition of the roof to help determine the best choice. The inspection also reveals all the costs involved should you choose to replace or repair. If repair costs are the same, close to or more than replacement costs, the only logical choice is replacing. Other signs that you may need a replacement are:
• Massive water damage through the roof
• Multiple roof leaks
• Cracked or curled shingles
• Decaying shingles, sheathing or soffit.
• Loss of paint and discoloration on the walls close to the roof
When you are in doubt, the best thing to do is to consult Main Street GC Inc to advise you on your safest options. This way you’ll be able to determine what you need early enough based on the viability and costing.

Are General Repairs or Replacements Covered by Insurance?
In most cases, if your home needs repairs or replacements, these services will be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. This includes all damages caused by accidents or others factors such as fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, hurricanes and severe storms. However, each insurance policy has its exclusions. For example, an old roof, use of expensive materials, neglect and deliberate damages are some of the factors that may keep you from coverage. Check your policy or talk with your insurance provider to find out more.
