ARR Contractors will argue for full replacement on your behalf.
The typical lifespan of a roof is one-third of the lifespan of the building it covers. This means that every roof, at some point, will need to be repaired or replaced. The cost of replacement is something homeowners don’t really like to think about as it is a big amount of money. But in the long run, it will be a great investment as the new roof guarantees the safety of your home and your family and increases the market value of your home. The best way to avoid expensive repairs and early replacements is regular maintenance. From this article, you will find out when you need a roof repairs and when to have your roof replaced.
In some cases, replacing a few shingles is all you need to do to restore the good performance of your roof. Before you conduct any repairs, it’s important to have a professional roofer inspect your roof to determine if there is any damage to the underlayment or decking.
If the damage is more significant, it’s possible to patch your roof. This option will cost thousands of dollars less than doing the entire roof. However, the outcome might not be aesthetically pleasing. The damaged area is usually much larger than a spot if just single shingle replacements are needed, which generally makes it more difficult to blend new with the old.
A lot of damaged areas is always a sign that the full replacement is needed. You have two options here: to install your new roof over the existing one or to tear off the old one. You can cover up the problem, but the damage is still underneath — and it’s only going to get worse over time. Adding a roof on an existing roof not only adds weight to your structure, but will also cost you down the line when it also needs to be replaced. It might be tempting to save money, but getting a tear-off replacement will save you from future expenses. At ARR contractors we will only tear off and not add to your existing roofing system.
ARR Contractors will treat your home the way we would treat our own. When we work with the insurance company, we won’t let them settle for repairs when you actually need a full replacement. Shingle replacement is a cheaper option, but do you really want to have SIMILAR shingles on your roof instead of your house having a wholesome appearance? A complete roof restoration is a great investment to your property. We will gladly help you figure out what type of service your home need.
