Every roof requires basic maintenance, so if you want to harness the longevity and durability of your asphalt roof, there are potential repairs that may be required. Roof repairs can only extend the life of your asphalt shingles and delay a new roof, but save you the time and energy of a new roof replacement.
Replacing shingles due to fallen branches or high winds is inexpensive and easy for a roofing company to repair. Damaged and torn shingles can be replaced, and new asphalt shingles applied.
One thing to keep in mind about roof repair is the aesthetics — while a residential roofing company may be able to closely match the asphalt shingle, it may not always be perfect. Unless you have spare asphalt shingles lying around, know that the replacements may be a little off.
It’s important to not only keep an eye on your roof, but have a residential roofing company inspect your roof annually — they can then help you determine what kinds of repairs you’ll need or if you’ll need a new roof.
If your roof is in need of repair, the great news is that asphalt shingles are easy to repair. Unlike cracked tile or slate roofs that are extremely expensive and labor-intensive to repair, asphalt shingle repair may only involve an hour or two of a residential roofing company replacing a couple of shingles.
Damaged Asphalt Shingles - One of the most common roof repairs is replacing damaged shingles.
Partial Reroofing - If your roof damage goes beyond replacing a couple of asphalt shingles, a partial roofing replacement may be your next best option. This is significantly less than a new roof replacement and it addresses sections of your roof.
Standing Water - If you have flat parts on your roof or your roof is damaged and sagging that allows water to pool, it’s important to get a diagnosis from a professional roofing company.
Curling Or Minorly Damaged Shingles - You may have some minor asphalt damage or curling that doesn’t always require replacing the shingles. Your local residential roofing company can come out and amend minor damage or curing with asphalt roofing cement.
Flashing Damage - When there is flashing damage, there is typically a leak. It’s vital to get a roofing professional out to fix a leak as a result of flashing damage.
Installing a new asphalt roof is an important home investment and a home improvement project that is about as critical as they come. Sure, it’s not as glamorous as a new kitchen or bath remodel, but your roof is the first line of defense that keeps your home and family protected. If you have roofing issues that go unaddressed and your roof fails, nothing can be more disastrous and costly.
Roof replacement is not something that should be delayed so when you see that your roof is near the end, it’s time to connect with your local residential roofing contractor.
Deciding on a roofing material is largely one of the biggest decisions homeowners have to make, but once that is cemented, a new asphalt roof installation is pretty straightforward. Each feature and benefit of the asphalt roofing shingle you select can factor into the final cost, in addition to the pitch and square footage of your roof.
Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles - This type of asphalt shingle is the most cost-effective and standard choice. They’re a single layer material and last a minimum of 20 years.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles - This type of asphalt shingle is a step up from three-tab shingles. They look nicer and they last longer — 30 years or longer.
Beyond the type of asphalt shingles you choose, there are many different features you can get that help to extend the life of your roof.
As a homeowner, maintaining your roof is just another aspect of the upkeep that’s required. It’s vital to make good decisions about your asphalt roof to minimize the costs both now and in the future, and, it can be a tough call on whether or not you should replace or repair your asphalt roof.
Home improvements can compound adding to a yearly budget that wasn’t anticipated, so it’s natural and almost law that homeowners seek out the most cost-saving option when it comes to their roof — roofs are expensive!
Whether it’s calling around and finding the lowest residential roofing bid or crossing your fingers and hoping that replacing a couple of your asphalt shingles will do the trick, the thing is, the cheaper route is not always the best route when it comes to an optimal asphalt roof.
While there are home improvements we can save money on such as choosing vinyl flooring over hardwood and still get a high-quality outcome, this isn’t typically the case with asphalt roofs. The lowest bid often means an inexperienced crew and questionable asphalt roofing products.
When you’re looking to hire a residential roofing company to repair or replace asphalt shingles, it’s important that you feel them out and investigate who they are as a company — don’t always go with the first roofing company that pops up or the cheapest one.
Once you’ve vetted a roofing contractor that you trust and have confidence in, you can consult with them about the best way to move forward with your roofing concerns.
This is another area where homeowners try to save money — choosing a roof repair over a roof replacement — and this can be detrimental to your wallet. Not only are you potentially paying for a roof repair now, but then in a couple of months, you’ll have to pay for a new roof installation.
Roof repairs are ideal for minor damage on an asphalt roof that still has a solid number of years left on it. Replace a couple of shingles that are curling or are beginning to show wear and tear signs of missing granules.
New asphalt roof installations should be the course if your roof is near its life expectancy or if you have major asphalt shingle damage such as leaks, wood rot, and major wear and tear from the elements.
At the end of the day, you want a solid asphalt roof that can protect your home and not one that you’re constantly making repairs to, so while a new asphalt roof installation may seem like a big investment — it is — it can save you money in the long run.
