Roof Repair or Roof Replacement?
Updated: Sep 1
Roof replacement is an investment that not only adds value to your home
Many different areas on the roof can cause leaks, like skylights, flashings, debris ect.
The quicker you get it fixed the better, it will make lots of problems if left unchecked.
To repair the roof or not is actually the question is based on whether the cost is worth doing it now or wait in awhile in which case is it is more likely a gamble the longer you leave it the more underlying problems it can cause and eventually cost a lot more expense.
As a local family contractor specialising in roofing, our goal is to make sure you are better equipped to manage what really is a ongoing between your roof and the elements outside, Summer in Florida is typically a harsh time for the outside of your home with the rain, wind, storms so the better you look after your roof the better it will look after your home.
In general asphalt shingles are the most common roof in the US and they are the cheapest to replace. Next in the middle of the road would be the wooden shingles and metal shingles. And the most expensive are the clay tiles, concrete tiles, slates tiles, which are the most durable with the longest lifespan which can last up to 50 - 60 years.
Most homeowners spend between $150 to $1550 for a roof repair or an average of $750 depending on the Repair.
In my opinion, as a professional roofing contractor, it's better to look after your roof every season make sure everything is good. It will last longer and it will look after your home, it will keep your energy bills down with the correct ventilation and save you money in the long run.

Wood rot caused by leaking roof on the leading edge just before the guttering, the panel on the underside of the roof overhang. And the fascia vertical board that runs along the roofline which we attach the guttering to, are both at risk from water damage over time, animals like birds, squirrels, raccoons like to nest in the roof ends. Space underneath the soffits and the soft spots in the wood which started to rot will make it easier for them to gain access.
