But maybe you’re living paycheck to paycheck and hoping that roof repairs are all you need. It’s possible. Let’s take a look at some of the things you need to consider.
Like everything in your home, eventually, your roof will age out. Flat roof materials like EPDM rubber and other roll roofing may last 20-25 years. When was the roof last replaced? If you’ve lived in your home more than 15 years and the roof wasn’t new when you moved in, you may want to consider flat roof replacement.
If you have a flat roof, you should get in the habit of checking it out at least once a year. If you don’t feel comfortable doing that yourself, you can hire someone to do a roof inspection. Keep an eye out for cracking, blistering, and bubbling of the top layer of roofing. Also watch out for warping, which can allow standing water to find its way into your roofing system.
If you notice your roof is leaking, you need to take immediate action. In many cases, a leaking roof can be fixed with simple repairs. But if your roof is leaking in multiple spots, it may be time for a full roof replacement.
The only way to know for sure whether your flat roof needs repair or replacement is to consult with reputable roofing contractors. Be sure to work with roofers experienced with this type of roof.
If you contact us, we’ll give you the truth. In many cases, we can make repairs that will extend the life of your roof. But if your roof has reached the end of its life expectancy, we will recommend roof replacement.
There are many benefits to getting a new roof, including some you may not have heard of. Let’s take a look:
OK, this one’s obvious. But the peace of mind you’ll have when heavy rain comes will be priceless.
You read that right. Most insurance companies will give you a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance premium if you tell them that you have a new roof. That’s because older roofs are at risk for leaking or blowing off in a storm, leading to costly insurance claims.
A new roof will likely reduce your heating and cooling bills, because you’ll have a tighter seal up top, preventing the loss of heat in the winter or of cool air in the summer.
Even though you may not be thinking about selling your home any time soon, a newer roof increases the resale value of your home. It’s one less thing a potential home buyer needs to worry about.
