Roof Repair Vs Roof Replacement

Homeowners with shingles over their heads would do anything to avoid roof repair. The cost is so high that they are better off getting brand new roofs and spending the money upfront to avoid the hassle and cost of having to replace the shingles and pay a repair guy to come and give the house a check for an estimate of all the costs it will take to replace the roof. This is a common mistake made by homeowners who are in need of roofs repaired as soon as possible, however.Checkout Roof repair for more info.

One of the biggest problems homeowners have when it comes to their roofs is not knowing what kind of coverage their insurance provider offers for roof replacement or repairs due to damage. Many people assume that all damage resulting from a roof leak is covered under a homeowner’s policy and do not realize that some damage is not. In fact, there are many different types of home owner policies covering different levels of damage to your roof. A homeowner’s insurance policy may not cover damage from an air leak or a faulty gas line but it may cover damage caused by a fire or a hot weather leak. If you only have a small amount of roof damage, such as peeling paint or a few broken shingles, you may not need to get a full replacement and can simply get a few fixings and reapply the tar and gravel to your roof, making repairs to your roof after the fact.

If your home has substantial amounts of roof damage, such as extensive leaks or extensive damage to the shingles themselves, you will probably need to get a roof replacement and pay the expense out-of-pocket unless you have good coverage from your home owner’s insurance. If your roofing material is compromised or the leak is very bad, a roofing contractor may suggest that you get a full replacement to fix the leak and prevent further damage to the wood and roofing material, which can also be very costly. Roofing contractors usually recommend getting a roof replacement even if you have only minor damage to your roof because a new roof will better able to handle future problems and anticipate future leaks. The best way to determine whether you need a roof replacement or not is to talk with a local roofer who knows how each of these scenarios works and what the average cost of a roof replacement would be in your area.
