Should You Inspect, Repair, or Replace Your Lemont IL roof?
Annual inspections are the surest way to prevent your roof from premature failure. Even though modern roofs are built to withstand harsh weather and other elements, damages are still relatively common. An inspection is key to preventing minor problems from escalating into bigger ones and preventing any risky accidents.
After an inspection, you’re now faced with the big decision; to replace or to repair. There are several important factors to consider especially when faced with potential costs.
The level of the damage: One crucial aspect worth consideration is the level to which your roof is damaged. This is especially true if your roof has sustained considerable damage, like after a severe storm. Sometimes you may discover that what you thought was a small leak will have spread to other areas, and a simple repair won’t do. If that’s the case, it’s smart to consider (after speaking to your contractor) about costs.
The age of the roof: This is another important factor that you need to consider; a roof with minor damage between 8 and 10 years will most likely be fine with repairs. However, if the roof is more than 20 years, you may want to replace it with a more durable option which will last longer. Remember, making repairs on a roof that is already at the end of its lifespan will only cost you more in the long run.
Your plans for the house: If you’re planning on selling your house in the near future and the roof doesn’t look so bad, sprucing it up a little bit can work. However, if the roof looks aged (and thus it might be hurting your resell value), then it may be better to replace it.

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.
Although coverage varies, most homeowners insurance policies cover damages outside human control. These include fire, hurricanes, tornadoes, hurricanes etc. However, don’t assume that just because you have homeowners insurance, it will cover all your repairs and damages. There are various exclusions that you should know of. The best way to ensure there are no surprises in your insurance claims is to contact your insurance provider for details. Each policy has terms and conditions, as well as procedures for filing a claim.
