One thing that most people know about roof repairs is that they shouldn't be delayed. A roof problem isn't going to go away. It will probably get worse, and if leaks are involved (which is usually the case), other parts of the house can also be damaged.
While roof repairs can be costly, it's good to have some basic knowledge about the cost of roof repairs before you contact a roofing contractor or consider doing the repair work yourself. Knowing what kind of materials are available, the pitch of the roof and the current condition of your roof can help you make an informed decision on how best to proceed.
If and when you do decide to contact a professional for help, our team of experts at Pro Home 1 is standing by to help. We understand the importance of choosing the right roofing services and the best roofer for the job.
When you choose us as your roofing contractor, you can be sure that you'll get a thorough inspection of your current roofing system, as well as a cost estimate of any suggested roof repairs. If repairs aren't enough and you end up needing a roof replacement, we can handle that too!

If your roof is damaged for any reason, it's smart to photograph the damage right away. Having a visual record of the damage is important when you make an insurance claim. You'll also want this documentation if the damage resulted from a tree that isn't on your property. Roof repair costs can vary greatly depending on the type of roofing and the extent of the damage.
Replacing missing or broken shingles will cost much less than if roof sheathing and underlayment also require replacement. The more expensive the roof materials, the more expensive the repair. For example, you can expect to pay more to repair a wood shingle or slate roof than you would to repair an asphalt shingle roof. In general, steeper roofs tend to be more difficult to repair, and thus more expensive.
"I'm not sure whether to go ahead with roof repairs or simply to replace my roof. What should I do?"
That's a good question, and a very common one. Spot repairs can certainly be a good short-term solution, but at a certain point, it makes more sense to replace a roof than to continue spending money on roof repairs. Here are some factors that can help you decide whether to replace your roof or continue with spot repairs.
Repairing a roof is a complex process that can vary in difficulty and price. A properly-installed roof should usually last 20 years, but factors such as climate, ventilation, and installation can have a significant impact on the life of your roof.
Over time, you may experience common roofing problems like missing shingles, algae growth, buckling and blistering, or roof leaks. However, you don't necessarily need a full roof replacement simply because your roof is showing signs of problems.
