Whenever a homeowner finds some damage on his/her roof or simply notices signs of aging, the first question that comes to mind is: Should I repair or replace the roof?
Making the right decision on whether the roof needs to be replaced or repaired is crucial because there will be cost consequences if a wrong decision is made.
First of all, you need to contact your local roofing contractor and schedule a full roof inspection. Once the contractor inspects the roof, he should be able to tell you whether the roof needs to be replaced or can be repaired. It is highly recommended to have more than one roofing expert inspect the roof before making your final decision.
Of course, getting away with simple roof repairs is the simplest option and most of the times the least expensive option as well. Therefore, always ask the roofing expert how significant is the damage and if patching up the roof can extend its life for another 5-10 years.
FULL ROOF REPLACEMENT
Depending on the age of the roof and the amount of damage to it, your roofing expert should be able to tell you if you need a full roof replacement or can extend its life with simple roof repairs. Ask your roofing contractor if he took any pictures of the damage that could support his findings.
It is also important that most roofers when they do a repair the offer you a small warranty or no warranty at all. However, when they give you a brand new roof the warranty is going to be better because it becomes less of a risk. Here at Legion Roofing for full roof replacements, we offer +10 years no leaks warranty. Nevertheless, we will always give a warranty, no matter how big or small the job is.
HOW CAN SOMETIMES REPLACING CAN BE MORE INEXPENSIVE THAN REPAIRING?
In most cases, Homeowners count with Insurance on the house in case anything happens, including any type of roof damage under certain conditions written on the policy they hold. In Florida weather is not your roof’s friend and receiving multiple storms during the year is normal, therefore is also normal to get roof damage. When this is the case, here at Legion Roofing we help our customers filing a claim to the insurance and help them get the cost of the roof replacement covered by the insurance. The only thing a customer needs to face is their deductible.
