Roofing advice and tips from roofing company Red Wolf Roofing in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Roof Repair VS Replacement

Depending primarily on the age of your roof and the materials that were used, you may have the option to choose between repairing or replacing your roof.

Roof repair – If the damage is minor and your shingles are still in good shape, there may be nothing wrong with just repairing them. Roof repairs are also more affordable than an entire roof replacement. One thing to keep in mind is that you’ll have to find matching shingles so that your roof doesn’t look mismatched after you have your roof repaired.

Roof replacement – If your shingles are severely damaged, few in number, or you have a leak, it’s time to get a complete roof replacement. Keep in mind, the age of your roof and the amount of time it has left in its expected life is another factor that can determine replacement. While this might sound like a big undertaking, it’s not as bad as dealing with the long term damages of a leaky roof.

The entire repair or replace roof question is a big one. We recommend that you bring in an expert to give you their opinion and best advice. Red Wolf Roofing is a great option if you’re looking for a roofer in the greater Fort Wayne area, give us a call!
