Should You Repair or Replace Your Roof?

A roof is one of the most expensive parts of most buildings, so it makes sense that you’d want to keep it intact for as long as possible. In order to do so, it’s important to understand when you can have your roof repaired, as opposed to when it must be replaced.

Below, you’ll learn everything you need to know about repairing or replacing your roof. Specifically, we’ll discuss how long your roof should last and how you can extend your roof’s lifespan. We hope this helps you get the most out of your roof.

How Long Should Your Roof Last?

Whether or not your roof needs to be repaired or replaced will vary largely depending on how it is. Roofs have a limited lifespan, and you’ll want to check how long yours is supposed to last. In order to determine a roof’s lifespan, you’ll want to take the material it’s made of into account.

Roofs made of tin or tile, for instance, can last for more than 50 years, while shingle roofs last closer to 20-25 years. That said, shingles do have one advantage that increases their longevity. Instead of needing to replace a shingle roof, you can often get it reroofed. This means replacing the shingles without replacing the underlying structure, and it can save you a significant amount of money. That said, you shouldn’t get your roof reshingled more than once.

How Can You Extend Your Roof’s Lifespan?

The best way to extend your roof’s lifespan is with regular inspections and repairs. These allow you to solve any issues before they become irreparable.

A professional roofing contractor will also be able to tell you roughly how long your roof should be expected to last before needing to get replaced. This allows you to properly budget for when the replacement needs to occur.
