If you’re considering replacing your old roof system, you might be asking yourself why it’s necessary to replace the entire system and not just repair the damage. Here are some important things to consider when deciding whether or not to repair or replace your old roof system. You may find that in order to properly prevent water damage to your home, it’s necessary to get a full roof replacement system instead of just repairing damage done by exposure to rain and other environmental factors.

Repair vs. Replace: The Reality

A typical asphalt roof will last about 15 years before requiring replacement. Repairing a leaky roof is often more expensive in the long run than replacing it in total, and roof repairs rarely last as long as a new roof would. In addition, repair jobs are temporary — they’re only a short-term solution to your leaky problem, whereas roof replacement is permanent.  While roofs can be repaired, they can also be replaced with a newer system that performs better and lasts longer.

Defining a New Roof System

If you are in need of roof repair, you may want to consider building a new roof system. What will your new roof look like? How much can you afford? How long do you plan on staying in your current home? These are all important questions that should be considered before making any decisions about what type of roof to put on your home. When choosing a new roof system, three popular options are asphalt shingles, metal roofs, and synthetic roofs. Each one has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to cost, durability, and aesthetic appeal. The best option for your situation depends on many factors, including location and climate conditions.
