A Roof Repair

Of course, a roof repair is less of a monetary and time commitment than a total replacement. A repair is an option to address roof damage, whether minor or a little more involved. A repair may suffice if the damage to your roof involves:

  • Minor moisture damage to the soffit and fascia
  • Blown off, missing shingles
  • Improperly installed underlayment

Plus, a repair could involve replacing certain components of your roof, such as the flashings of the wall, chimney, skylight, water heater, or furnace base.

A Roof Replacement

A replacement, on the other hand, involves stripping off everything to expose the deck underneath to allow for the installation of a completely new roof. You may need a roof replacement if your roof is:

  • Severely damaged
  • Sagging or leaking
  • At the end of its intended life span
