Roof Repair or Replacement This Winter?

When there is a problem with your roof, it can be hard to know what to do. One thing for sure is that the problem needs to be dealt with as soon as possible before the winter weather gets even colder. Problems with your roof could lead to you spending more money on your energy bills and further problems with your home.

But the key question is, roof repair or replacement this winter? Read on to find out.

Repairing a roof

Roof Repair

Roof repair is a great option for those who can’t afford the cost of a full roof replacement, or only have a small problem to deal with. It’s a cost-effective solution that can extend the life of your roof and repair short-term problems. Roof repair is great for leaks, missing shingles, cracking, blistering, punctures and holes.

The biggest advantage of roof repair over replacement is the cost, it’s a lot cheaper to repair a roof than go through with a full replacement. Also if your roof has only a small problem, there's no point going through a costly and time-consuming roof replacement when all you need is a little change. Roof repairs can go wrong and look unsightly as shingles might have to be used which are different colours than the existing ones due to discoloration over time compared to a fresh piece of roofing.

Roof Replacement

Only in a few situations is it necessary to completely replace a roof, as they are typically meant to last for decades without needing a replacement. However, sometimes major problems can necessitate needing a complete roof replacement. Replacing a roof will greatly improve the lifespan of your roof, extending it for many years to come.

If your roof was not installed correctly, replacing your roof will probably help prevent any small problems from popping up over time, which could eventually lead to a more expensive replacement. Completely replacing your roof will increase your curb appeal, giving your house a fresh new look. The biggest disadvantage is the inconvenience of getting your roof replaced. It is a loud job that can go on for a while.
