Every homeowner knows that your roof is one of the most important aspects of your home’s exterior. It provides your home with so many benefits, including protection from the elements, curb appeal & resale value, insulation, & more! Considering how important your home’s roof is to the health of your home, it is important to ensure that it is well-maintained. However, your roof is also a complex piece of engineering, with many individual aspects that need to be accounted for. Considering how complicated it is, it should come as no surprise that many homeowners have questions about their roofs! Our team is here to assist! Take a look at our FAQ for answers to some of your questions!
Should I Repair or Replace My Roof
Our team receives this question perhaps more than any other. Obviously a roof is a major investment, and many homeowners would prefer not to replace the entire system if they can avoid it. So this often begs the question; can I get away with repairing my roof or do I need to replace the entire system.
The answer to that question is entirely dependent on how severe the damage to the roof is. If the damage is localized to a particular area of your roof you can likely just repair the damage. You will still need to have a professional assess the roof deck to ensure that the damage hasn’t spread under your shingles.
However, if the damage has occurred in more than one area of the roof, you will likely need to assess the entirety of the system in order to properly answer that question. Generally, if damage has occurred in more than one place its a sign that the system is getting older and failing, so you may need to have it replaced, but it’s still possible that repairs may fix the issue.
If My Shingles Are Losing Granules, Do I Need To Replace Them?
If your home’s shingles are losing their granules, this can always be read as a sign that the system is on the verge of failing. Your granules help to keep the shingles protected from UV rays, so even if there is an external factor besides age that’s causing the granules to fall off, it can still be read as a sign that your shingles will be failing in the near future. Be sure to keep an eye on them, but you may be able to get away with another year or two before needing a full replacement if your system is losing granules left & right.
