 In Blog

At Horn Brothers Roofing, we don’t just want clients to extend their roof’s lifespan, but we also want you to get the best bang for your buck. To do that, it’s vital that you make right decisions to keep your home improvement costs at a minimum.

When it comes to your roofing, deciding between replacement and repairs isn’t always as straightforward as you may think. There are certain signs to look out for and some aspects to keep in view while making this decision. Here is some information that can help:

Patch Up or Reroofing?

Damaged shingles are a common roofing problem. The best way to deal with it is to replace the damaged shingles. This is pretty easy in the case of a new roof structure and especially so if you have some shingles saved from the installation job. But if you have a very old roof, patchwork might not be the best solution. In this case you may need a roof replacement service and not just maintenance.

Partial or Full Reroofing?

Reroofing is the ideal solution when there are significant damages. However, if the damage is limited to one section of the roof, partial reroofing might solve the problem and will be more affordable that complete reroofing. If the technicians find during the inspection that a significant portion of the roof is damaged, complete replacement might prove to be a better solution.

Tear-Off Or Roof-Over?

When you are reroofing, you need to decide whether to install a new feature over the existing one or to tear off the existing roof and then install the new one. This decision would hinge on the amount of money you want to spend and the value a complete reroof would provide. The age of the roof would be a major determining factor in this situation.

There is a major difference between simple roof repair and essential roof maintenance. We strongly recommend that when it comes to protecting your property and family, it’s best not to leave anything to chance. The best way to determine whether you need a roof repair service or replacement is to call us for a roof inspection.

You can trust us to offer objective and unbiased advice. We will provide you with detailed information regarding the condition of the roof and the potential costs of repairs and replacement. This will help you make a better informed decision.
