You must act quickly if you discover a leak in your roof. How do you know whether to repair or replace your old roof? This isn’t always an easy choice to make. There are a few things to think about. The average life span of asphalt shingles is generally between 10 to 20 years.
Asphalt shingles have a 10- to 20-year life expectancy. Some people believe that most shingles are rated for 25, 30, or 50 years by the manufacturer. The fact is that we have a lot of severe weather in Texas, which reduces the lifespan of our roofs significantly Here are a few things to think about when deciding whether to replace or repair your roof.
Storm Damage to the Roof
If your roof has been damaged by wind or hail, you may need to replace it, regardless of its age. Wind damage to your roof can range from a few blown-up shingles to a whole section of shingles being blown off. It’s possible that the wind has blown shingles loose that you can’t see. Your insurance company may want to replace the entire roof depending on the severity of the damage. Hail damage to your roof is much more difficult to spot. It could be years before hail damage causes your roof to leak. If you suspect your roof has been damaged by hail, you should have a licensed roofing contractor inspect it before contacting your insurance company.
You should consider having your roof repaired if it is less than ten years old. A newer roof shingles are usually less brittle and easier to repair. Roofs installed more than 12 years ago have reached the average age of an asphalt shingle roof and may require roof replacement. Repairing an older roof with crumbling shingles can result in more harm than good. ReJUVEN8 roofing and restoration provide a complimentary roof inspection to assess the condition of your roof.

Your financial situation will have a significant impact on your decision. A new roof can range in price from the mid-range to the high-end. Is it worth spending a few hundred dollars to repair a roof that you’ll have to replace for ten times as much next year? Consider a home equity loan if you don’t have the funds to replace your roof.
