In every home, roof repair is sometimes needed to keep moisture away and keep the structure from rotting. While a well-constructed roof provides many years of service, with all the elements it battles year-round, wear and tear are natural results. Proceeding with roof repair can be a large project loaded with choices impacting the structural integrity of your home, so carefully consider your options before repairing or replacing your roof.
Repair or replace? How do you know when it’s time to repair or replace your roof? A well-built, well-maintained roof will usually have a lifespan of around 20 years, and you’ll definitely know it needs attention from such signs as damaged or loose shingles, a film of moss or algae indicating moisture retention, and visible wear around chimneys, pipes and other penetrations. If your roof’s condition provides the opportunity to choose between these options, consider the number of years you plan to stay in your re-roofed home.
