Patching Versus Repairing Your Roof

A tile roof

Every roof has a lifespan, and through its time, repairs may need to be completed to keep it in tip-top shape to protect your house and everything in it, but the time will come when a replacement will be your best choice. 

If you’ve noticed issues with your roof and there are some concerning damages, it may be time to have them addressed with a professional roofing company to determine if a patch job is the right fix or if a replacement is the best next step. Here’s what you need to know about your two options:

Getting Your Roof Patched

When an issue arises with your home’s roof, like a leak, a patch job may be all that is needed. To ensure this is the right decision to fix the damage, work with an experienced roofing company to handle the job. 

Before patching the roof, there are two important risks to keep in mind: 1. You must be sure there are no further underlying issues that won’t be fixed with a simple repair, or the patch will not fix the problem. 2. When patching a roof, there is a chance that the type of shingles or tiles in the patch area may not match 100% to the surrounding shingles. Work with professional roofers to find the best match possible to avoid an unsightly roof. 

Getting a Roof Replacement

When there is a slew of damage to your roof, and your roofing system is near or past its intended lifespan, it may be time for a total replacement. If you choose to get a roof replacement and forgo repairs of just the current issues, you will likely be saving yourself money and worry in the long run —  damages can get worse quickly and create even more expensive problems for your roof and other areas of your home.

Don’t hesitate regarding the well-being of your home’s roof. Speak with a team of local roofing professionals about getting a roof replacement complete as soon as possible; you’ll feel immediate relief!
