Repair vs Replace? It pays to know what you want

Repair vs Replace? It pays to know what you want

So your roof is leaking, it needs to be repaired right? Maybe or maybe not. Do you know the age of your roof? What type of roofing system does your home have? There is a lot of points to consider when it comes to either repairing or replacing a roof, and knowing what you want and need beforehand will give you a head start in getting an appropriate estimate.

Choosing whether to repair leaks and issues with your existing roof or to invest in a new one can be a hard decision. Today’s economy is uncertain.. Most homeowners have the tendency to just patch up a leak and make do with what they have in hopes that it will solve their roofing problems, at least for a little while. However, when you’re thinking about roofing, that might not be the best idea. If your roof has needed several repairs over the years, is leaking on a large scale, is exposed to strong sunlight (we are in Florida after all!), or is more than 15 years old (Shingle roofs in particular), replacement is likely the best option. Advanced new roofing materials are energy-efficient and will keep you protected better than the roofing material your roof probably currently has, and will also save you money on bills in the future.

So do you repair or replace your roof? Knowing which type of estimate you want beforehand can really help you in choosing the right roofing contractor for your estimate. It’s true that most roofing contractors in Florida will try to sell you on a new roof, even if repairing is possible. Florida Southern Roofing is not one of those contractors. Often times the repairs can save you several years before a new roofing system is needed, but could also lead to more extensive damage in the future. Florida Southern Roofing will never pressure you to replace your roof if repairs is all you can afford, or if your roof can be repaired and last without the need for a roof replacement. We will tell you honestly in our professional opinion what type of services is best for your home, but will work with you on whatever type of service you’re comfortable with. That’s our promise.
