To Replace or Repair?
To determine whether a repair or replacement is your safest bet, first consider the condition of your current roof. If your roof is missing only a few shingles or a leak can be spotted only at one place, a repair can work. However, if a storm has blown off your shingles and there are several leaky areas or the roof has suffered significant damage, a replacement may be the best choice. Also, if you see brown patches or molds on the roof, it would be wise to replace rather than doing patch ups or repairing. This kind of roof has been affected by water damage and it may affect the overall structural integrity of your home.
Another thing to consider is the age of your roof. Materials (shingle, tile, metal) have different lifespans. If your roof’s lifespan is coming to an end and has started showing signs of wear, a replacement is necessary. Cost is another factor. When you contact the professionals at Main Street GC for inspections, they will come to your home and make a thorough assessment. After doing the assessment, they will come up with the required repair or replacement cost. If repair costs are more than the replacement costs, it’s only logical to go for a full replacement.
