Spring, Texas Roof Repairs Versus Roof Replacement

Considering we experienced a once-in-a-lifetime winter storm not long before we enter the rainy spring season, you may be wondering if you should get any roof work done to repair past storm damage and reinforce your roof as the seasons change. This is especially true now since hurricane season takes place in late spring, but how do you know whether you need Spring, TX roof repairs or a Spring, TX roof replacement? In this article, our Houston-area roofing company will explain the difference between the two and when you might consider either option. 

Is A Roof Replacement Better Than A Roof Repair?

Some homeowners think it’s better to get a full Spring, Texas roof replacement to guarantee their roof is as damage-free as possible for the next few years, while others believe a few good repairs will be enough until they can afford a roof replacement. The truth is, one is not better than the other and which service you need really depends on the current state of your roof.

How To Know When To Get A Spring, TX Roof Replacement Or Roof Repairs

Our Houston roofer recommends you get Spring, Texas roof repairs if only a handful of shingles are cracked or curled, but have yet to begin affecting the neighboring shingles. 

For example, if we find that a couple of shingles are slightly curled, but have yet to loosen the adjacent shingles, then we may most likely recommend a simple repair.

In contrast, if several shingles are buckling or sunken in, or have curled and lifted several neighboring shingles, then a Spring, Texas roof replacement is vital. If you don’t address this level of roof damage as soon as possible, then you and your family, as well as the rest of your home’s structure are all at greater risk of harm.
