Can A Katy Roof Be Repaired Instead Of Replaced?

As we continue pushing through the remainder of Houston’s hurricane season, it’s a great idea to tend to your Katy roof to ensure it remains strong and protective for the rest of the season, which officially ends on November 30. At Amstill Roofing, we offer Katy roof repairs and Katy roof replacements, but is it possible for your roof to only be repaired instead of replaced? This is how both services compare and when we recommend each.

Is A Roof Repair Better Than A Katy, Texas Roof Replacement?

We get this question quite often, especially from homeowners who worry about the cost of a full roof replacement. While this is usually true, the cost truly depends on the current state of your roof.

A roof repair is ideal if only a few of your roof shingles are damaged here and there, either with cracking, buckling, or curling. When this is the case on your roof, we can easily complete some repairs, which will restore the integrity of the rest of your roof. 

On the other hand, if your roof is missing several shingles and a chain reaction has occurred (usually the case with curling shingles), then a replacement may be necessary in order to repair the significant damage your structure has sustained. In both cases, depending on the severity of you roof, you will have to determine which is worth the money in the long run.

If your concern for how much you should budget for is holding you back from investing in roof work, read our previous blog on how to keep roof work within your budget. We also offer roof financing options and will help you get substantial coverage from your homeowner's insurance if you prefer. The safety of your family and your home shouldn’t break the bank.
