Roof Repair vs. Roof Replacement

Last updated 5 years ago

There are some things in life that one cannot do without. A roof is one such thing. But how can you tell for sure if you really need a new roof, or if you just need a repair? 

If you have had your roof installed by a professional (as opposed to some guy just working out of the back of his truck), using quality materials, you should reasonably expect to get somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 years or more of life out of your roof. If your roof is younger than that, then you should carefully consider why you are having issues with leaking. 

Fortress Roofing is committed to maximizing the life of your roof. If you have leaking problems but believe that your roof should still have plenty of life left, call us to arrange for a roof inspection. A roof inspection is a careful and thorough examination of every component of your roofing system, which allows us to diagnose the problem so that your issue is completely resolved. Our goal is not to "try" to fix the problem, but to completely resolve it so that you can rest easy, knowing that your home is protected from the elements.

If you have questions about whether you should be repairing or replacing your roof, our website can help get you started, and our roofing professionals are standing at the ready to help, no matter which option you choose. Check out this "Repair vs. Replace" quiz:

As always, contact us anytime you have any questions about what is best for your roof.
