Roof: Repair or Replace?

Roof: Repair or Replace?

So you have completed your roof maintenance checklist and are now asking yourself should I repair the roof issues or replace the entire roof? Our roofing specialists understand all the ways your roof protects you from the elements: wind, the sun, and rain. Fortify your roof to protect you and your home from water leaks and mould. The integrity of your roof maintains the quality of everything in your home, including the safety of your family.

Our experts at URE: United Roofing and Exteriors will help you determine if the issues you've discovered are repairable damages or not. Some concerns on your roof that we have mentioned in our Roof Maintenance Tips blog are:

  1. Shingles that are curling, peeling, or discoloured
  2. Granules in the gutters from the asphalt shingles
  3. Cracked, torn, or missing shingle present urgency
  4. Sinking or sagging where water can collect
  5. Blistering or tears in your membrane roofing
  6. Corrosion or Warping in your metal roof system
  7. Moisture or leaks in the attic

Your roof only requires repairs if experiencing a few of these issues. Our roofers can fortify your residential shingle, metal, or rubber roof, as well as commercial roofing systems like a membrane, rubber, or flat roofing systems.

  1. The missing parts are minimal
  2. An isolated incident like a storm causes the damage
  3. The roof has more than half of its projected lifespan remaining:
  • Asphalt shingles: 15 to 30 years
  • Metal roofs: 30 to 75 years
  • Rubber roofing systems: 10-16 years
  • Cedar shingles and shakes: 30 to 50 years

Our specialists have years of experience, and we recommend replacing your roof when the following damages occur:

  2. Extreme weather to a severe degree like that of a tornado or intense winter.
