Repair or Replace – Roofing Prices

To go through the process of replacing your roof is a big decision, and you should always call in a professional to help guide you in this decision-making process. If you notice something unusual about your roof – leaks, missing or broken tile, damaged shingles, or rotted fascia – you will have to decide if you are going to either repair only what’s needed or if you are going to replace the entire roof. The consequences of such a decision can not only bring financial repercussions due to roofing prices, but also compromise safety and the future market value of your home. This is why to hire a professional contracting company such as AABCO is the best course of action to take in such a circumstance. They will always let you know your best recourse.

If you notice broken or missing tile or torn and damaged shingles only, its good news. This can often be repaired by simply checking and repairing any damaged underlayment and replacing the damaged materials. The only down side to it is that if you do not have spare tiles or shingles that were used on your current roof, the colors may not match. If there’s not a drastic difference in color, it should not be too big of a problem. However, if there is a major difference it will not be aesthetically pleasing. You may be able to paint the area to match, but again that is something you would have to determine.

Some additional signs to look out for in aiding you in knowing whether to repair or replace your roof if your roof is in relatively good condition, and not past its life expectancy which is usually 20-25 years for tile and approximately 14-16 years for shingle and your experiencing staining on your ceiling discoloration on your walls, soffits, or rotting fascia there’s a good chance you have a roof leak which can normally be repaired.

If you can see sunlight coming in to the attic or your roof is sagging, there are several areas on your that are missing tiles or shingles, or your roof is past its life expectancy, these are red flags that indicate it’s time to reroof. One call to AABCO can help you figure out the best and most cost-effective solution for your needs.

If you do decide to reroof, because of the age, current condition or that your roof has deteriorated beyond the point or repair, it is best to call a qualified, licensed professional, get a few estimates and do your homework before making your final decision. There are quite a few benefits associated with replacing your roof, and you will want to take a look at all of them before making a final decision. Installing a new roof on your home not only brings beauty, it increases your property values and most importantly, gives you peace of mind that your family will be safe and dry for many years to come.
