Roof Repair Vs. Replacement
On April 17th, 2018, severe winds topping 80 mph blew through Longmont and the rest of Boulder County. Many asphalt shingle roofs sustained damage due to shingle blow off and tree debris. During the following two weeks, our professional roofers were busy on many roof inspection calls. When assessing roof damage, most of the common things that cause shingles to fail and blow off include incorrect installation, poor-quality materials, and underlying roof damage.
During our roof inspections and appointments, we are frequently asked if our customers wind damaged roofs can be repaired or if they should be replaced. So, when considering roof repair vs. roof replacement, there are a few important items to consider.
Age of the Roof
An older asphalt shingle roof may be in brittle condition, meaning the shingles cannot be properly repaired without creating additional damage to the roof.
Size of Repair
Some municipalities do not allow for large roof areas to be repaired and require that a damaged roof be replaced in its entirety. In other cases, it may not be cost-effective to repair a roof that has large areas needing repair.
Type of Shingle
Some shingle styles are discontinued and no longer available. Obsolete shingles cannot be repaired.
When it comes to roofing installation, you cannot afford poor-quality products or workmanship. You and your family deserve the best. Hire professional roofers in your area to avoid the inconvenience of additional roof damage, having a roof that will protect you and your beloved for years to come.
