So you’ve noticed some damage starting to manifest on your roof. If you’re wondering what to do next, in any case, it’s smart to get informed about how you should respond to damage. This is especially ideal as you’ll want to stop any issues with your roof before they get worse, as they can potentially cost you a fortune in reparations. In today’s blog, we’ll be discussing roof repair and replacement, and help you decide which is the right choice for you. If that sounds interesting, keep reading below for more information!

Roof Damage: What to Know

In a general sense, roofs are built to last homeowners a long time. Though it can vary based on certain factors, like the quality of materials and/or installation, your roof might even show no signs of damage for years on end. However, the most common signs of roof damage include (but are not limited to):

  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Water damage
  • Ventilation issues
  • Gutter issues
  • Wildlife or animal infestation

As a homeowner, it’s smart to stay vigilant against these signs of damage, as you can save time and money you’d otherwise spend on repairs. However, if you do notice minor damage, it might be smart to invest in roof repair.

Roof Repair

When there is significant, yet treatable damage done to your roof, a roof repair may be the right choice for homeowners. A roof repair can patch up minor damage expediently, as long as it occupies a small portion of your roof. Some elements of damage that can be solved with a roof repair service are:

  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Ventilation issues
  • Water damage and/or pooling water

Roof Replacement

As the name suggests, the roof replacement process sees your entire roof become removed and replaced. When your roof is in a state of severe decay and is beyond repair, it might be smart to invest in a roof replacement altogether, as it can save you from spending further time and energy down the road. Though they aren’t common, some signs of damage that warrant a roof replacement are:

  • Intense sagging
  • Severe, irreparable water damage
