Shingle repair is an option for Charlotte and Concord, NC residents who have a small area of damage on their roof. Though most people think if their roof has any damage they need to replace the roof. However, sometimes, elements can damage just shingle or small area and a repair is all that is needed. In fact, replacing shingles when they become damaged can help your roof last longer, saving you money in the long run.
How to tell if it is time for a shingle repair
One of the first things to take into consideration when deciding if shingle repairs or roof replacement is needed is the overall age and condition of your roof. If you’ve been through a storm and your roof is only a few years to 10 years old, a repair may be sufficient. However, if your roof is sagging or older, like 10 to 20 years old, a replacement may be needed.
Next, you’ll want to look at the type of damage you have. Did a tree branch gouge a hole in your roof? Did hail chip part of your shingle, causing a part of it to come off? That can likely be fixed using shingle repair. But, if the damage causes structural concern, a replacement may be the better option.
How quickly you require services can also determine whether shingle repair is needed. If you find you have a leak, but need a while longer to save the funds to replace your roof or can’t get someone out to redo part of it for a while, shingle repair can solve the problem in the short term.
DIY or hire it done?
Repair is something many homeowners think they can tackle themselves. After all, how hard can it be to remove the existing problem shingle and put a new one in? It may be harder than you think. Hiring a roofing professional to handle your shingle repair may be the better option.
Not only can a professional ensure the shingle repair is done correctly, but they can also ensure no further damage is done. And, if something further should be done to keep your roof in good order, a professional will be able to tell and notify you of that as well.
