If your roof has been bugging you lately, chances are it’s because something is wrong with it. Like so many other important parts of homes, roofs are often forgotten until something goes wrong. Whether you need a few shingles replaced or an entirely new roof, however, this is the important question. And actually, it’s easy to answer by investigating two other questions:
How extensive is the damage?
It’s best to contact a qualified professional for a thorough roof assessment in order to assess the severity of the damage. If your leak is minor or if you are missing a few shingles, a repair will be low cost. However, if your roof has needed several repairs over the last few months or years or if you have been a victim of a freak hurricane, it’s time to look into getting a replacement roof.
How long will you be living in the home?
If you are wobbling on that fine line between repairing and replacement, consider how long you plan on remaining in this particular home. If you plan to resell soon, repairs may make more sense. If, however, you are currently staying in your ideal home and have no immediate plans to move away from the greater Kansas City area, then it’s best to go ahead and invest in a new roof. That way, you are able to immediately reap the benefits of a new roof and avoid sleepless nights wondering if those last repairs will hold up under the incoming thunderstorm.
A roof replacement is not an easy choice, but in some cases, it is the best choice. If you are unsure, contact HBC for a thorough roof inspection. If it is time to replace your roof, be sure to ask about energy efficient options and weather shields to maximize your investment. And remember- although it’s not fun, you need a roof over your head, so it may as well be one that you like.
