The Pros and Cons of Roof Replacement

It can be difficult to choose between repairing your roof and replacing it all together. Knowing the pros and cons of replacing your roof can help you make your decision.

Pros

When major damage occurs, such as a storm that causes extensive water damage or the majority of your roof’s shingles going missing or curling, it is often easier to just replace the entire roof. Also, a roof replacement will increase the resale value of your home and prevent you from wasting money repairing damage to an old, vulnerable roof.

Cons

There is no question that replacing your roof is much more expensive than repairing it. There is a lot of effort and time spent in choosing the best contractor and roofing materials for the job. For a new roof or a roof experiencing minor damage, a full replacement may be unnecessary.
