Repair, patch or replace your roof? Here’s all you need to know about roof maintenance
When you are making big decisions about your home, it can be tough to know if you need to “go big or go home” or if a smaller repair job will suffice. And when it comes to roof maintenance, the decision can be even more difficult.
Roof maintenance is crucial to keeping your home in tip-top shape. After all, your roof is the No. 1 way your home stays warm and dry, right? And after the long, hard winter we had, your roof might need some roof maintenance.
So, if you are wondering if you need to repair, patch or replace your roof this spring, the experts at Feazel are here to help. Read on:
Repair and replace
If you have shingles on your roof that are missing or damaged – and they are few and far between – repairing and replacing them might be something to consider. Sometimes, your roof needs a little TLC and not a whole overhaul – especially if your roof is relatively young. One thing to consider: Shingles fade, so your new ones might not perfectly match your old. But, it certainly can save you big bucks vs. a completely new roof, so it’s something to consider.
Replace your roof
If your roof is getting up there in years (more than 15-20 years old) or has already been repaired or patched, it is probably time to consider a new roof. Sometimes, you’ve done all the roof maintenance that you can and it is just time. Investing in a new roof – especially if you plan to sell your home in the next few years – is a good idea. It’s peace of mind and it will add value to your home. It’s best to get a new roof on so you don’t have the headache of leaks or other damage to your home. Plus, it’ll add curb appeal.
