Questions to Ask Before Repairing or Replacing a Roof

No roof will last forever, but how can you be sure when is the right time to replace your roof? You will need to consider a few factors. In this blog post, Northern Pacific Roofing, a top roofing contractor in our local area, explains how to tell if you need a roof repair or a complete roof replacement.

How Old Is Your Roof?

Asphalt shingle roofs have a lifespan between 15-30 years. If your current roof is at the upper end of this range, then there’s a good chance it will need to be replaced soon. While repairs can extend the lifespan of a roof a bit, at some point it’s not cost effective to pour more money into a failing system.

Is There a Roof Leak?

You will need to ask an experienced roofing company to inspect your roofing system. They will thoroughly investigate your roof and assess its condition. They will determine how widespread the leak is and whether roof repair or replacement is the best solution to your problem. If the leak is widespread then a complete roof replacement might be necessary.

Do You Plan on Moving Any Time Soon?

If you plan on moving to a new house within a few years, then it might make more sense to just repair your roof. However, if you plan on sticking to your current home, then you should invest in it. If your roof needs to be replaced, then you need to choose high-quality materials that last a long time.
