Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Hinsdale IL Roof?
The majority of roofing problems come as a result of improper installations. Therefore, before starting repairs or replacements, it’s wise to have an inspection so the job is done right once and for all.
Proper inspections determine whether the underlayment and decking are damaged. A professional inspector will help determine whether your roof damage can be fixed with minor repairs or will need a full replacement.
When should you book a roof inspection?
•Have you noticed any issues with your roof? Say, a leakage, mold or even brown spots?
•Has your neighborhood been hit by a recent storm?
•Is your roof over 20 years old?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the questions above, it’s probably best to book an inspection.
When Should You Repair your Hinsdale IL Roof?
The function of shingles is to protect the decking on your roof from moisture and wind. Even when a small section is exposed, water can seep into the underlayment and deck and cause substantial damage through leakage and eventually rotting. If the damaged area is relatively small or located in an otherwise difficult area to access, it is advisable to do simple repairs.
You shouldn’t wait to replace the entire roof if you can get away with simple repairs. However, repairing an improperly installed roof will cause more problems down the road, which will be even more costly to mitigate because the current roof problem will only escalate and get worse.
Is it time to replace your Hinsdale IL Roof?
If your roof is old, severely damaged, or in need of extensive repairs, then it may be time to do a full replacement.
The following are other cases when you should have your entire roof replaced.
1. If your roof is sagging, you don’t even need expert advice to confirm the replacement; it should be replaced immediately.
2. If the roofing inspector reports extensive damage on your roof, you should have it entirely replaced.
3. If your roof has served you for 20 years or more, it will probably give in to the normal wear and tear soon. You should have the entire roof replaced.

Does Insurance Cover Repairs & Replacements?
In general, homeowner’s insurance will pay for roof repairs or replacements if damages are caused by factors out of the homeowner’s control (such as storm damage, fire, vandalism). We work with licensed public adjusters in Illinois to help you navigate through the tedious claims process and maximize the results for you.
However, it is important to remember that whether or not your insurer will pay for the cost of the roof replacements depends on the extent of the damage. If a roof repair can help fix your problem the insurer will want to resolve the issue with less costly repair measures.
Additionally, the cause of damage is a major consideration when the insurance company decides whether your homeowner’s insurance policy will cover the cost of roof replacement. Your policy may not pay for the cost of replacement if the roof is older than its warranty or when there is probable negligence on your side.
