The best time to build a roof is when you need one! While current weather is a factor in outdoor jobs, there is never a bad time to build, repair, or replace a roof. Our first step is to identify any existing problems to determine when the repair should be completed. The materials involved will also factor into the project’s timeline (e.g., asphalt shingles require +40°F whereas a flat roof can be installed or repaired at any temperature). Our team is prepared to work as needed to resolve your issue.

How to Choose Between a Roof Repair or Roof Replacement For Your Home

"How to Choose Between a Roof Repair or Roof Replacement For Your Home"

Deciding whether to fix or replace a broken roof is an interesting conundrum. On the one hand, you can’t save a roof beyond repair. Conversely, you can’t buy a new one prematurely without wasting money. Until you figure out the best course of action, the structural integrity of your house hangs in the balance.

Here, Protect Roofing answers helps you answer key questions to determine the appropriate direction to take in order to restore your asphalt-shingle roofing system accordingly. We have been serving St. Louis, Missouri with top-notch roofing services for several years now, and we will always give you honest advice on what is the best choice for your home when we do roofing inspections, guaranteed.

Now, let’s determine what the best course of action should be for your roof, whether that’s giving it some repairs or replacing it entirely.

Let’s get into it.

How to Choose Between a Roof Repair or Roof Replacement For Your Home

How Old Is Your Roof?

In general, an asphalt shingle roof lasts between 15 and 30 years. By the 16th year, you should actively look for signs of severe damage, for the rate of deterioration accelerates from this point forward.

Are Most of Your Shingles Going Bald?

It is not uncommon for asphalt shingles to shed their protective granules over time. This phenomenon is a natural part of their aging process. Any experienced roofers will attest that the more asphalt shingles go bald, the more vulnerable they are to the elements. 

Then again, not all causes of granule loss can be attributed to aging. Only a competent professional could diagnose defects in material, manufacturing, and/or installation.

Is Your Roof Leaking?

Go to your attic, and look for any evidence of water damage. Damp insulation, mold growth on framing members, dark streaks on a wall, and rays of sunlight through roof boards are classic indications of roof leakage.

Are You Planning to Move Soon?

When you buy a new roofing system and choose to put your house on the market, you may not recoup most of your expenditure at resale. You may be able to use product and workmanship warranties as bargaining chips, but there is no guarantee that property buyers would see the value in them.

It is imperative to know how many years your broken roof still has when you are in this position. This way, you may be able to keep it from leaking until you are ready to move and avoid a major expense.
