Roof Repair vs Roof Restoration
Roof repair can be very costly, especially if there is only a small area of the roof that needs to be repaired. You can do visual inspections on your roof to see what condition the roof is in. Look for rusting on flashing, worn and cracked caulking. The shingles may be buckled, cracked, torn,or blistered. If there are piles of asphalt in the gutters from the shingles, the shingles are not protecting your roof from the sun. Also, look for worn areas around skylights, pipes, and chimneys. If you have concerns, trust us at Aledo’s Roofer, the roofing company, to give your roof a comprehensive inspection and quote. We will explain what damage is there, and why our recommendation is restoration or replacement.
Replacing shingles due to wind damage or falling limb are easy to replace. Especially if the underlying paper is still intact. Remember that the shingles should match and a contractor should be able to match the coloring. If there is less than 2.5 inch hail, the roof should be able to be restored leaving no hail damage. Wind damage can also be focused on the loose shingles, which in most cases are easy to replace. Furthermore, there can be leaks from old flashing around skylights and chimneys.

You will need to decide if you want to remove the old shingles, or install a second layer. There are costs and benefits of each. If you install a second layer of shingles, they may not hold up in a strong wind because they are not nailed to the roof deck. However, it is cheaper to not have to remove the layer of shingles. If you opt to remove the shingle layer, you will have the opportunity to inspect the roof deck or sheathing. You will be able to inspect for wood rot and sheathing not fastened appropriately. Then those repairs can also be made at that time, and you can rest assured your sheathing will not blow off your roof exposing your interior to damaging rains. Additionally, your shingles will be nailed directly to the roof deck, therefore, high winds will not be as damaging. You can also apply an ice-and-water shield membrane along the eaves that prevents ice damming.
