Pros and Cons of Roof Patch vs. a Complete Reroof

roof workSo you know your roof needs some serious repair, but should you go with a roof patch or a complete reroof? It can be challenging to know which option is right for your home. Getting professional opinions from trusted roofers can help you make an informed decision. In the meantime, we have the pros and cons of a roof patch vs. a reroof to help.

Roof Patch Pros

  • More affordable than a reroof or roof replacement
  • Can stop leaks and prevent moisture damage
  • Takes less time to perform, so it minimizes the time you are dealing with people on your roof

Roof Patch Cons

  • May mask problems that are underneath the surface
  • Is not enough for a roof with extensive damage
  • Can be dangerous to attempt on your own; always hire professionals for the job

Reroof Pros

  • Can give your roof a new life without a total roof replacement
  • Will extend the life of your existing roof for several years
  • Can plug up holes or gaps in shingles to stop water leaks
  • More affordable than a full roof replacement.

Reroof Cons

  • It’s possible to damage the underlying structure if you use inexperienced roofers or the materials are in poor condition.
  • May hide the real structural problems underneath the surface.
  • Some homes may have an uneven roof after a reroofing. Choosing a professional roofing company can prevent this problem.

3 Ways to Show Your Roof Some Love This Valentine’s Day

heart hands over homeWhile you may not consider your roof on Valentine’s Day, this holiday is actually the perfect time to show your roof some love. By taking a few steps to maintain your roof, you can help your roof relationship withstand the test of time. After all, no homeowner wants to pay for unnecessary repairs or a premature roof replacement.

Keep reading for three roof maintenance tips that will enhance your roof’s performance and longevity:

#1: Clean the Gutters

Sounds romantic, right? Maybe not, but the truth is keeping the gutters clean is crucial to preventing blockages and roof rot. When your gutters are clear, the water can flow away from your roof and home to prevent property water damage.

#2: Trim the Trees

If you can hear tree limbs scratching your roof during windy times or inclement weather, this is a sign indicating you have a problem. Trim the tree branches to keep the branches away from the roof’s surface. Not only will you prevent roof damage from banging branches, but it will also ensure rodents and other pests don’t use the branches as paths to invade your roof and home.

#3: Schedule a Roof Inspection

Perhaps the best way to care for your roof is to schedule a roof inspection with professionals. Experienced roofers will be able to provide a thorough inspection to identify signs of decay or damage, so you can schedule any necessary repairs. This approach will help you catch minor issues before they become major hassles.
