When to Patch, Repair or Replace a Damaged Roof

how to know whether to repair patch or replace your roof

Dealing with a compromised roof can be as frustrating as it is confusing, and most homeowners (understandably) don’t know whether they’re dealing with a minor roofing issue or one that requires more significant repairs or replacement. As many have learned through experience, one of the worst possible things any homeowner can do is simply wait for the problem to resolve itself. We assure you, it won’t. Left ignored, many residential roof problems will get worse over time, resulting in even greater discomfort and repair bills that are inevitably more expensive.

In many cases, the signs can be obvious as to whether your roof requires a minor touch up or more advanced services from a local professional.  Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to repair, patch or replace your home’s damaged roofing system.

  • Missing shingles can be replaced and very minor damage can often be patched
  • Older homes with their original roof may require moderate to major repairs
  • Significant storm damage should always be evaluated by a trusted roofing company
  • Never attempt to repair your own roof if you have little to no experience doing so
  • Many common roofing problems are covered by insurance, a roofer can let you know
  • Roof replacement is often the best option for those dealing with more serious problems
