Repairs can be attractive at first due to the lower cost compared to a roof replacement, however they don’t always provide a long-term solution. The age and condition are the two main factors to consider when deciding which way to go.
When a roofing contractor is asked to repair an old or rusty roof, it’s very unlikely that any form of guarantee will be placed on the completed job. It’s this lack of guarantees that often sees a lot of the home owner’s money being spent in vain chasing leaks over repeated visits.
If the leaking roof is free of rust, then leaks are generally a result of poor workmanship during the original installation. It can just be a case of some flashings being resealed. It’s in this case that a simple repair makes sense and can be carried out with confidence.
Needless to say, replacing your roof is the sure-fire way to ensure your home is protected from the elements for decades to come. It’s a fixed price solution with low to no maintenance and in most cases will outlast you.
