Making the Decision Between Roof Repairs or Replacement
As a Columbus homeowner, it is important to be aware of the maintenance required for your roof. Your rooftop is the most vital element of your home; it is the first line of defense against the elements. So make it a point to set up regular service and care, in order to keep your roofing in tiptop shape. One problem that often arises is when a homeowner is faced with the possibility of needing to replace their roof. This can be a loud, messy, time consuming and expensive job. So, whenever possible, repairs are preferred but how can you know which one you need, for sure?
Be in the Know
Is there any way for you to determine if you need replacement or just repairs? Here are a few pointers to consider:
- Know the expected lifespan of the type of roofing material you have. If a so-called pro tells you it is time for replacing, long before it should be time, at least get a second opinion, first.
- Compare the current value of your roof to the cost of repairs. If the repair expense is 50%or more than the present worth, it would make more sense to replace it.
- Find out more about the extent of the damage. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to damage it out and start over. This is a common occurrence with hail damage, as enough of it will compromise the structural integrity of the roof.
- Above all else, work with only a reputable and established roofing expert so that you can be certain that you are getting honest feedback. Avoid so-called pros that are only interested in talking you into service you do not need.
