Should You Repair or Replace Your Roof?

If you own the same home long enough, at some point, you will be faced with the decision of whether to repair your roof or replace it altogether. Thankfully, Networx offers some straightforward guidelines you can use to determine which choice is in your best interest.

The first thing you will want to do is inspect your roof to get an accurate picture of its current condition. Experts recommend that you perform a roof inspection at least once a year or following a significant storm. Doing so will help you immediately identify any issues so you are in a position to repair them before they become major issues that require a full roof replacement. In particular, you should look for shingles that are cracked, curling, split, warped, torn or covered with algae.

If you notice more than 30 percent of your roof has this type of noticeable damage, you probably will need to replace the entire roof.
