Roofing Replacement vs. Repair: 7 Deciding Factors to Consider

All roofs deteriorate and eventually need to be replaced. But, when is the right time to re-roof? When are repairs enough? If you replace your roof too soon, you’ll waste money. If you wait too long, you risk ending up with roof leaks and expensive water damage.

When to re-roof depends on several factors, including the shingles’ wear and age, the climate in your area, and your home’s susceptibility to future damage.  If you’re conflicted and can’t decide whether to replace or repair, read on – we’ll help you make the right call.

Roofing Replacement vs. Repair: 7 Deciding Factors to Consider

Roofing Replacement vs. Repair: 7 Deciding Factors to Consider

Since roofing replacement is a rather costly investment, most homeowners want to postpone it for as long as they can, especially if the roof has reached the stage where it’s starting to have problems but is not completely shot. The cost of a shingle roof has roughly doubled during the last 10 years, after all so repairs might seem more desirable. Yet, many contractors will push for complete replacement, more focused on their bottom line than what’s best for their customer. So what’s the right call?

7 factors to consider in deciding whether to repair or replace

  • You roof’s age is one of the most important considerations. Most asphalt shingles have a lifespan of about 15 – 30 years. If the roof is damaged but most of it is still in good shape, a spot repair may make sense. But, if the roof is approaching (or past) 20 years old, replacing it may be the better way to go long-term.
  • If there’s a leak somewhere, an inspection will help you determine how widespread it is. Often, roofs will leak along flashing points. If this is the case, and the leak is isolated, a quick repair may be all that is necessary. If the roof is leaking in several places, a roofing replacement may be in order.
  • Give some thought to how long you intend to be in the home. If you’re planning to sell in the next few years, and the roof is in generally good condition, it may make more sense to have repairs done.
  • If you opt to replace your roof, you may be able to incorporate environmentally-friendly features that qualify for local or federal tax credits to offset the cost. Also, new materials are generally more energy efficient, last longer, and perform better so an upgrade is desirable long-term.
  • If you’re replacing your roof, you may find that the type and/or quality of roofing material you use can qualify you for significant discounts on your homeowner’s insurance policy. Materials that are more resistant to fire or wind and hail damage will often result in lower rates.
  • As you consider the costs, you may or may not be able to lay another layer of shingles over the existing roof, rather than removing the current layer and starting “from scratch”. At the same time, removing the old shingles will allow you to inspect the roof deck or sheathing, and add ice-and-water-shield membrane along the eaves (which can only be applied to a clean deck and will help prevent damage due to ice dams).
  • If you’re thinking about replacing your roof, don’t forget to consider “hidden costs”, including gutter replacement or landscape damage. A reputable roofing contractor will produce a comprehensive estimate detailing all of the project’s costs.

Repairs are less expensive but tend to be more of a short-term solution, while a new roof is a big expense but should last you for decades. Either way, make the right decision today and you won’t have to worry about leaks and damage when storms roll through.

Residential Roofing Installation: Top 3 Energy Efficient Materials

Sometimes coined “cool roofing,” energy efficient roofs have been growing in popularity due to their ability to lower utility bills and reduce your home’s carbon footprint. While most of these roofing materials cost more upfront, you’ll enjoy saving money over the course of your roof’s life—and have peace of mind knowing that you’ve made a sustainable decision.

Cool roofing is simply roofing materials that save energy by keeping both your roof and your house cooler during the warm seasons when you need to use the air conditioner.

Conventional roofing materials, like shingles and wood, reflect only a small portion of the sun. Most of the sun’s heat is transferred to the sheathing below the roofing material, into the attic and then the rest of the house, requiring air conditioning to work harder. On the other hand, efficient roofing materials reflect 20-80 percent of the sun’s rays back, depending upon regional climate, the direction your home faces and the specific material you choose. Less heat is transferred inside, leading to lesser demand put on your house’s cooling system, which ultimately saves you money on your energy bill.

Residential Roofing Installation: Top 3 Energy Efficient Materials

Residential Roofing Installation: Top Energy Efficient Materials

Top 3 energy efficient residential roofing materials:

  • Metal: Metal roofs are considered among the most energy efficient types of roofs. They reflect a greater share of the sun’s rays and, depending on any coating applied to the metal, homes may see a savings of 20 to 30 percent on air conditioning costs. Bottom line: steel, aluminum and other metals reflect a great deal of sunlight, plus are fire- and insect-proof and flame retardant, as well as other “green” benefits!
  • Tile: Clay and concrete tile roofs withstand the weather particularly well, offer natural thermal resistance and create a natural ventilation that provides a thermal barrier for heat transfer to the roof deck (since they’re installed individually with airspace around the tiles). Additionally, tiles can be painted with a reflective coating further increasing their energy efficiency. Bottom line: tiles are natural, recyclable, energy efficient and environmentally-friendly, and last 50 years or more!
  • Energy Star Products: The Energy Star rating is given to a variety of materials that reduce a roof’s surface temperature—and thus, a home’s air conditioning use. Ask your residential roofing contractor about which materials are recommended by Energy Star or visit their website.

Worth Considering Before Roofing Replacement

  • Before deciding upon an environmentally friendly roofing material for your new or existing home, do your research and acquire at least three installation estimates from different roofing companies that you can compare.
  • Remember to consider things like maintenance, too. Metal and tile roofs are very easy to maintain, and come with comprehensive warranties lasting many years.
  • Finally, it’s important to check with your homeowner’s association and local municipality’s building department before purchasing roofing materials. Certain cities may require a particular type of roofing material and/or or grade of material, and associations may have certain color or material requirements as well.

Energy efficient roofing offers both financial and environmental benefits. If you live in an area with a predominance of warm weather and sunny days than it’s definitely worth considering a cool roof. You can calculate your savings here to see whether a cool roof makes sense in your case.
