Patching Your Roof vs. Replacing Your Roof

Protecting your home at all costs is the ultimate goal to ensure that you and your family are safe. Roof repairs can cost homeowners a tremendous amount of money each year because of neglected maintenance or simply just wear and tear.

Over time, your roof deteriorates with age and from withstanding harsh weather conditions. For most homeowners knowing when it’s time to replace the roof entirely or to re-roof it can be a difficult decision to make. Deciding as to which solution is the most durable or which one will keep you from breaking the bank is frustrating, but don’t fear – Hercules Roofing is here!

Pros of Re-Roofing

Re-roofing your home can be a daunting task, but can take little to no time. This process is fast and cost-effective. Re-roofing works best when your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan or when you want to maintain your already healthy roof that has minor damages. However, it is necessary to contact a professional roofing company like Hercules Roofing to thoroughly inspect your roof to see if re-roofing is the best option for you.

Pros of Replacing

Replacing your roof is a great choice when considering several things such as the material of the roof, the age of the roof, and the damage from a recent disaster. Replacing your roof is the safest option because it guarantees that areas affected by water/moisture damages, sagging shingles and the holes in your roof will get fixed properly.

Cons of Re-Roofing

The major con of re-roofing is that oftentimes this method does not fix the underlying problem. Re-roofing just covers up the problem, leaving your roof exposed from damages within that can potentially be hazardous to the interior of your home.

Cons of Replacing

Although replacing your roof is an effective way to ensure that your home is secure, the cost can be substantial. When replacing your roof, you have to consider the labor, the hours, and the material cost. These things can pile-up, causing you to lose some serious cash. It is also smart to keep in mind that these replacements can take up to a few weeks, potentially leaving areas of your roof bare and exposed.
