If your roof is missing shingles, has a leak, or shows general signs of aging, you may be wondering whether to do a repair or a complete replacement. Making the right decision between these two options is very important because it’ll have an effect on both long and short-term function of the roof and also affect your budget. For instance, repairing when you should replace will end up costing more in the long run. On the other hand, appropriate repairs rather than a replacement will save you time and money.

When is a repair necessary?
Damaged, missing, or torn shingles are typically fixed with basic repairs. Missing and damaged shingles are common after storms. Slipping new shingles into the gaps left by old ones is simple & less expensive than alternatives. Minor leaks are also fixable.
A repair may also come in form of a partial re-roof. If one area experiences significant damage, a partial re-roof may work for you. It may save you money over full replacement and is easier to blend rather than replacing a few shingles here and there.
When Should Your Replace?
One sign indicating that you need New Lenox Il roofing replacement is age. If your roof is old and has started experiencing problems, it’s better to replace it. If your roof is more than 20 years old, the shingles may have dried out, cracked and worn down. This can cause moisture to accumulate, which leads to the decay of the wood framing underneath. Also, if your roof has sustained a lot of damage over time, consider a replacement. Roofs that are affected by severe weather conditions may not last as long as those in more moderate conditions. If you replace a few shingles here and there nearly after every storm, you’d be better off redoing the whole roof than making patches every time. Roofing materials have improved greatly over the years, a full replacement gives you a chance to upgrade to stronger and more durable shingles.
