Should You Inspect, Repair, or Replace Your Mokena Roof?
Note: the final costs of roofing services depends on a number of factors, so these figures are just meant to serve as a guideline.
Homeowners commonly overlook roof inspections because they assume they’re strong enough to withstand harsh weather. However, what they don’t realize is that even the most robust materials can suffer damage which can graduate into more significant problems down the road. The purpose of an inspection is to assess the structural integrity of your roof so you can catch small problems before they become bigger ones. An inspection will also tell you the current condition of your roof.
Should I Repair or Replace My Mokena Roof?
Many homeowners prefer making repairs because it’s less expensive in the short term. On the other hand, replacements can be costly in the long term. So which option should you go for? Here are some of the factors you need to consider.
Your budget, short-term and long-term needs – How much are you willing to invest in a solution to your roofing problems? If you’re on a tight budget and you just want a short-term solution, then repairs will work for you. However, if you want a long-term solution that you won’t have to worry about for years to come, then a replacement may be the best option. Remember, continuous short-term costs may end up costing more than a replacement in the long run.
Recent Disaster – If a disaster has occurred recently, such as a hurricane, tornado or harsh storm, then replacing your damaged roof may be necessary.
The age of your roof – The expected lifespan of a roof varies with materials. For instance, asphalt shingles have a lifespan of 20-30 years. If your shingle roofing is less than 20 years, then repairs may work fine. However, if you’re having major problems and the roof is nearing the end of it’s projected lifespan, then it may be time for a full replacement. Replacing will even give you the opportunity to update the curb appeal of your home with more durable and stylish materials.
The degree of damage – If your roof has few shingles missing or less significant damage in general, repairs will do. But, if the damages have significantly affected the structural integrity of your roof, such as widespread leaks and extensive curls or cracks on your shingles, it’s time to replace. Making repairs to a badly damaged roof puts you at the risk of the roof collapsing.

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 companies cover repairs and replacements when your roof is subjected to natural disasters like hurricanes, a severe storm or tornado. Even though hail and wind are also natural disasters, there are some insurance companies which don’t cover them. Also, damages resulting from neglected and old roofs may be denied coverage. It’s worth mentioning that not all insurance companies cover expensive roofing materials (slate etc.). For instance, expensive or new materials which are not very well known may not be covered. To find out the specifics of your policy, please examine your insurance policy or call your provider for more info.
