Houston Roof Repair Versus Roof Replacement: Which is Better?

Houston Roof Repair Versus Roof Replacement: Which is Better?

Now that Houston’s hurricane season has ended, it’s time to check up on your roof to see if you need a roof repair or replacement to ensure its longevity. Although Amstill Roofing offers both services to Houston, Katy, Sugarland, and other nearby neighborhoods, we understand that you want to be absolutely sure that the decision you make is the best one.

Is A Roof Repair Better Than a Roof Replacement?

Some customers think a roof repair is better than a replacement because it saves money and does just enough to last them until they can afford a full roof replacement. Other customers think a roof replacement is best because they can have a brand new roof that is guaranteed to last for years to come. However, one is not better than the other, as it depends on the case.

A roof repair is ideal if only a handful of shingles are cracked or curled, but have yet to affect the neighboring shingles. For example, if we find that a couple shingles are slightly curled but have not begun loosening the shingles that neighbor them, then we may most likely recommend a simple repair.

On the other hand, if several shingles are buckling and have sunken, and a chain reaction has begun compromising more and more shingles, then a replacement is absolutely necessary because the entire structure has sustained significant damage. If your roof has sustained this level of damage, then it has likely already put your family and the structure at risk of both water and mold damage.
