Do You Need to Replace or Repair Your Roof?
One of the main points considered when deciding between roof repairs or replacement is the cost. While it’s not always true, a full roof replacement usually costs more than simply repairing a few broken parts. Because of this, homeowners choose the former over the latter often without regard to other important factors. This is particularly common with storm damage roof repair phone calls that our professionals at KAT Construction handle daily.
So how do you know which is the right option? In our experience, there are tell-tale signs that a full replacement is needed. If your roofing system falls under the following categories, then you may need to start thinking about replacing your roof soon.
Have a professional inspect your roof. Most reputable contractors will offer free inspections and even provide you with a detailed quote. Establishing a baseline for comparison will be helpful to settle the question of costs when doing a replacement. In the case of weather-damaged roofing, have a storm damage restoration specialist from KAT Construction come by and perform a complete assessment of damages. Our professionals will also help you file insurance claims to get your home back in excellent shape.
Is your roof nearing the end of its service life? If so, then a full replacement may be the more cost-effective option. Older roofs tend to require repairs more often as problems that just seem to pop-up one after another. The cumulative costs of repairing these frequent issues can quickly accumulate and end up setting you back more than one replacement.
Does your roof leak continuously? Do ice dams form too easily in your roof assembly? Unfortunately, roofing problems are not restricted to the roof itself. These issues will often spread into other parts of your home, as well. Melting ice dams can accelerate rot in the roof panels and the excess water can seep into your walls. During heavy rains, you may even need to call a storm damage siding repair technician to address leaks making their way to the siding boards or worse, your home’s foundation.
