With any type of work which needs completing to your roof, it’s essential to resolve issues as soon as they’re found or even beforehand. This then prevents them from becoming a costly nightmare later on.

If your roof needs maintenance, it can be a very hard decision on whether or not to replace or repair the roof.  The majority of property owners are unsure about how serious and expensive the problem actually is.

To give you more insight into the differences between full roof installations, replacements and repairs, we’ve outlined some of the key facts below for you to take a look at.

When Should You Repair Your Roof?

Repairs are generally the best choice wherever possible, especially if your roof isn’t too old or heavily damages. Some of the most common repairs we come across include missing or slipped tiles, broken slates, crumbling chimney stacks, cracks or even damage to guttering.

Perhaps you’ve noticed an issue during your summer roof maintenance checks, or you’ve got a leak in your loft area.  Whatever the issue, ask a professional roofer to inspect the area so that you can make the best plan as soon as possible to prevent any further costs or problems. Always ensure they are a reputable company with the right accreditations and ask for a free written quotation so that you can get a rough idea of the cost.

When Should You Install A Replacement Roof?

There are a couple of reasons you may decide on a full roof replacement instead of just a repair. The main reason being that your roofing has been damaged beyond repair or the benefits of a brand new roof outweigh the cost of doing regular repairs. In old properties a roof may come to the end of its lifespan or you may decide to replace your roof if you’re tired of constant repairs and stress. Opting for a new roof can transform the appearance of your home while allow you to select high quality materials which have more longevity than your current roofing.
