Roof Repair Estimates
To replace, or to not replace... that is the question. Unfortunately, gathering and thoughtfully reviewing roof repair estimates with a Nor'easter pounding away for 5 days sometimes isn't the best option. You can request a free and no obligation roof repair estimate by filling out the online request form at the top of this page.
Often it's clear that a roof needs replacing, it's 23 years old with a 15-20 year shingle, you've got significant wear, cupping, puckering, loss of crystals, and leaks everywhere. But when does it make sense to investigate getting roof repair estimates instead? If your roof is newer and shouldn't need replacement you should request a roof repair estimate. If there was a one time trauma to your roof such as a tree or large limb falling on it, you could likely get away with roof repair estimates instead of full installs. The most common request for a roof repair estimate is premature leaking at flashing points. It's estimated that 90% of roof leaks come at areas with flashing such as chimneys, plumbing vents and the like.
The advantage to roof repair estimates is obvious, you can often get away with a much lower price fix to your problem. The downside to roof repair estimates are two-fold: 1) Most roof repair estimates do not include a warranty as a new install would. Understandably, the contractor will not and cannot warranty someone else's work. And 2) If you do eventually need a full replacement then you've paid twice. So our best advice is to have a competent and honest local contractor give you an evaluation and a written roof repair estimate and weigh the cost of the roof repair estimates vs the risks outlined above.
