One of the best ways to minimize costs during a roofing project is to consider several factors before hiring a roofing contractor. In Charlotte and Concord NC, the company who does the best shingle repair Charlotte offers is Advanced Roofing and Exteriors. They can help you determine whether you need a new roof or if your current roof can be repaired.
What you should consider
The first decision when it comes to replacing or repairing your roof is if you can simply patch damaged areas and leaks or whether or not you actually need to partially or completely replace the current roof. Advanced Roofing and Exteriors will help you with this decision.
If you decide you need to replace the roof, you will then need to determine whether to roof over the existing roof or if it should be removed and replaced. There are costs considerations for both of these situations.
If you and Advanced Roofing and Exteriors believes you can repair the roof, you may need to start with replacing shingles. Often, shingles are damaged due to wind or a fallen tree. Doing this is relatively inexpensive and can be done fairly quickly by the roofer who does the shingle repair Charlotte homeowners trust. A good roofer can easily remove and then replace torn or damaged shingles with new ones. Unfortunately, unless your roof is fairly new or you saved shingles from the initial roof installation, a patch job may not match the current roof. However, given that a repair job is much less expensive than an entire roof replacement, mismatching shingles may not be too big a price to pay for extending the life of your roof another 10 to 15 years. If you are planning on selling your Charlotte or Concord NC home in the near future, the roofer performing the shingle repair Charlotte homeowners prefer can order shingles that match as closely as possible. If the patch on your roof is too visible or noticeable, it could impact the resale value of your home.
If the damage to your roof is significant, but is confined to one side of the roof, you may be able to do a partial re-roofing. This option is also less expensive than a complete roof replacement and when the roofer doing the best shingle repair Charlotte offers, Advanced Roofing and Exteriors does the work, they may be able to blend the new shingles with the old shingles so that color differences are less noticeable.
