Know When to Repair or Replace Your Roof


Many times, there are gray areas where you can’t be sure whether you should repair or replace your roof. You should consult one of the trusted local roofing companies in Monterey County like Premo Roofing Company for a professional and informed decision. We will provide an assessment of the situation and recommend the proper action. Below is an overview of roofing materials based on their durability and repairability.

Roofing Materials

Certain materials have different life expectancies. For example, slate and tile roofing are less likely to require a complete replacement unless it’s over 70 years old. On the other hand, some materials can endure too much damage even before the end of their service life. Poor maintenance or extreme weather conditions can cause these issues.

Metal is a common material used because of its durability. Unless damaged by extreme winds or impact from hail or fallen trees, it will rarely require repair. A typical metal roof inspection would involve looking for signs of extensive corrosion, which is a kind of damage that only experts can assess. Typically, a repair on a metal roof is small and only in localized spots.

Asphalt shingles is another common roofing material. This material usually requires easy repairs especially when you only need to fix a small area. If you see a large area of your roof with damaged shingles, it maybe time to consider a total roof replacement.

Consult an Expert

Repair or replace mostly depends on the roofing type and the current damage. Slate and tile roofing can last a long time if you schedule regular maintenance. Metal requires a closer look for smaller areas of damage, while age, visual condition, and signs of deterioration determine the right type of service needed for asphalt roofing.

Consulting a professional roofing contractor is still the best way to determine the lifespan of your roof.
