Roof Repair or Replacement

You know you’ve lived in your home for awhile and most likely, you’ve already made some significant replacements, like the HVAC system or exterior painting.  What rules of thumb are there for knowing when to replace or repair your roof? Here are some quick tips that can help:

Interior failure: chipping paint, ceiling stains and discoloration are all signs of roof failure—

Repair if the damage costs less to fix than a new roof would cost; Replace if the damage costs more than a new roof and if the repaired roof will not survive its original life cycle

Leaking: Water stains, leaks

Repair if it is due to flashing problems and the leaking is isolated; Replace if roof remains saturated under shingles (causing slow decay)

Moss/mold: signs of moisture and growth

Repair the roof if only a few shingles are greatly affected by the growths; Replace the roof if there is significant growth over a large area of the roof

Roof Age: most roofs can last about 15 to 20 years

Repair if it is 15 years old or younger; Replace if it is approaching the 20-year mark

Roofing Shingles: Missing or slidding asphalt shingles, wood shake, slate tile

Repair if there are a few that are missing or damaged; Replace if there is a significant amount missing or damaged, and therefore it would cost less to replace the entire roof than repair it

Roofing layers: Existing & Additional Layers

Repair roof by adding layers if the damage is small enough to add layers; Replace if there are already two layers, because it can be heavy and cumbersome

Rule of thumb:

Replace if 30% or more of roof is damaged
