The deciding considerations for repairing or replacing your roof are the roof's age, the material's condition, and the project's scope. After assessing the project’s material, and potential outcomes, a professional roofing estimator can determine if a repair is the correct answer for your roofing project. A reliable roofing contractor will inform you of these issues if the roof is beyond its useful life or if a repair becomes cost prohibitive. They will provide you with a recommendation to move forward in another direction. The only way to know for sure is to have your roof, and the project looked at by a professional roofing company experienced in repairs and roof replacement, like Valentine Roofing.
