Should You Replace or Repair That Old Allen Roof?

Repairing or replacing, that is the question.

It is a good question to ask yourself, too. You just have to make sure that you know what you’re looking at, and consider some factors when the time comes to repair or replace. Of course, speaking with a professional that does a roof inspection can give you exactly what you need to know on what to do and how to do it. However, if you’re considering what you should do before or after the inspection, consider some of these factors ahead of time before you jump to a conclusion.

Consider Some Factors

  • How old is the roof that is on your home?
  • Do you have mold, mildew or pests living within the walls or on the ceilings and walls in the home?
  • Do you continue to have leakage through the home?
  • Are there physical damages that are on the outside or inside of the roof?
  • Do you see wear and tear, or discoloration on the roof?
  • Are there particles or grains from the shingles in the drains or system of the roof?
  • Is the roof sagging in places?
  • Are there missing shingles, flashing or other parts on the roof?

Storm Damage - shingles missing

If you find that the roof is old, has any or all of the damages then you might want to have a total roof replacement. This can save you money and headache in the future by taking on the process of replacement sooner, rather than later.

If you’re just missing some shingles, have small spots of damage or wear and tear, then you want to make sure to check into having these spots repaired instead of having the whole roof replaced. Some smaller problems might be better off repaired.

Newer roofs do not have to be replaced because they were just put on the home. You want to make sure that you make your roof last as long as possible which means not replacing it as soon as you see something.

Regular maintenance throughout the year can ensure that your roof stays in great condition. Remembering your inspections throughout the year can also be an ideal way to go about keeping your roof intact and in great working condition for many more years to come.

With everything that is happening, you want to make sure that you’re speaking with your roofer throughout the process. You want them to agree that the choice you make is the right one. They have the professional knowledge on roofing that perhaps you need to come to a conclusion so if you’re still in doubt, ask a roofer for an inspection and their opinion.
