Do you know when to patch, repair or replace your existing damaged roof? Although there are no guidelines that are completely clear and straightforward, the following advice and tips should help you make up your mind more easily and make more sense of your roofers’ recommendations, if you plan to have your damaged roof inspected by a professional:
- You should consider a quick patch-up job if your roof is still relatively new, and the damage isn’t too great. It’s still a good idea, however, to have your roof inspected by a professional to make sure that further damage has not ensued, especially after a strong thunderstorm or hail storm.
- A thorough repair might be warranted in the case of a somewhat older roof, or if the damage is extensive. This will usually be required if the roof hasn’t been tended to for more than 1-2 years, if the damage has been made by a highly severe storm, or if the roof has sustained minor damage but it is still pretty old and torn up.
- A complete replacement will be required if your roof is too old to be repaired properly, or if the internal structure has been severely impaired. Sometimes, severe external damage resulting from a hurricane or fire might also warrant a full replacement. The professionals doing the roofing in Dallas TX make a quick job of it.
