Should you inspect, repair, or replace your Lockport roof?
Roof inspections are an essential part of any roofing project. This is because they’ll point you in the right direction of which service you need; be it repairing or replacing. Also, getting a roofing expert to inspect your roof will help take care of problems while they’re still small, and eliminate the chances of collapse; which may be risky to you, your family and your belongings.
How to decide whether you should repair or replace your roof:
Long-term costs – If a potential repair may just be masking an underlying problem, then it’s wise to fully evaluate the costs and decide if going for a full replacement is right for you. If you’re on a tight budget, and damages aren’t covered by insurance, you may not be able to afford a replacement on short notice. However, if your roof keeps on failing (old roof leaking in new places), repeated repairs may make you wish you had just replaced the roof the first time. So don’t forget to keep in mind the long-term impacts of both options.
The extent of damage – If you’re facing only minor damages, such as small leaks or a few missing shingles, then repairing will work. If however, there are leaks throughout your home and shingles are extensively cracked, chipped, broken or curled, then replacing is the best choice. This is especially true if your roof was exposed to a severe storm.
Your Roof’s Age – If your roof is aged and it has started showing signs of damage, it’s smart to consider a full replacement.
“Main Street General Contractors was an absolute delight to work with. They came to the house to replace the roof and siding. Showed up on time and kept the yard and house neat. The guys were all very willing to discuss any questions that I might have had and were all very courteous. The work was completed on time and they did an outstanding job. We are extremely happy with the workmanship. I will recommend Main Street to everyone I can.” – Christopher B. (Chicago Area homeowner)
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.
Most insurance policies cover damages that result from natural causes, like heavy rain, severe storms, flooding, tornadoes, and hurricanes. Few insurance providers cover intentional damages, neglected maintenance, old roofs, and costly materials. It’s advisable to read your insurance policy to understand all the details. When you are going through repairs or replacements, be sure to keep your insurance company informed as the process continues. Sometimes, the roofing company may work directly with the insurance company to get things repaired and even bill them directly.
