How Long Should My Roof Last?
Roof Repair vs. Replacement
If you’re new to homeownership, then you may be asking yourself, “how exactly is a repair different from a replacement?” A roof repair involves restoring or replacing minor issues, such as damaged shingles or panels, and can usually be completed within a couple of hours. A total roof replacement is a more lengthy process which includes an entire tear off and the installation of brand new materials.
Deciding between a roof repair and replacement isn’t always clear but, that’s why our experienced, knowledgeable team is here to help you weigh your options between a total replacement and a roofing repair in Austin. We’ll walk you through the process with as much or as little detail as you prefer. If your roof is newer in age and you start to notice some minor damage, then most likely we will be able to return it to its original, reliable state with a simple repair.
What Constitutes Minor Damage for a Roof Repair?Knowing what constitutes repairable damage can help give you a better idea from the start of whether or not you’ll be dealing with a repair or replacement. Although our expert inspectors are here to provide you with all of the details, here are a few common signs to indicate you may be due for a repair:
A few missing shingles or a handful that appear curved or cracked can most often be replaced individually – without the need to replace the entire roof. However, shingle damage is no joke, and you should get in touch with an expert immediately for an inspection. If you start to notice lots of damaged singles, you may be better off with a roof replacement.
Asphalt shingles are also susceptible to granule loss, and granules are what keep your shingles solid and protective. If you start to notice a pile of granules in your gutter, you may have some unseen shingles in need of repair.
