How to Decide If Your Roof Needs Replacement or Repair

The decision of having your roof repaired or completely replaced depends on its overall condition.  Some roofs manage to stay in shape longer than others due to milder outdoor conditions, as well as other factors.

Roof Inspection

You can call the Palm Beach roof repair specialists from JJ Quality Builders to assess the condition of your roof or you can do this on your own. You can take the first step and inspect the roof for obvious damage, such as rust, holes, or sagging areas. Signs of leaking are also a good clue. So look for them on the inside of your roof. Dark spots and small gaps where you can see the sky are definitely signs of damage.

On the Outside of the Roof

Another inspection you can do before calling the Palm Beach roof repair team from JJ Quality Builders is to observe the outside of the roof. There are more obvious signs of damage to look for, such as missing shingles, curled or distorted shingles, or signs of the shingles being worn out. You can also check the gutters for shingle pieces, which may have fallen from the roof. The presence of algae and loose materials around the chimney is a definite sign of damage to your roof.

To Replace or Repair?

Roof replacement is expensive, so it is ideal to hire a Palm Beach roof repair team from JJ Quality Builders to repair your roof anytime you see signs of damage. Light damage can be solved by a repair, which is an easier and cheaper way to keep your house dry and clean. It is important to note you should use shingles from the initial roof installation. Otherwise, your house might lose curb appeal as the new shingles stand out by not matching the previously-installed ones. If by chance you don’t have the original shingles, you can buy new ones, but they will stand out for some time due to the difference in age. The original roof shingles become affected by weather and slightly change their color over time.
