The roof has sentimental value because it appeals to the home’s content. Most people are looking to maintain the home’s curb appeal and, of course, keep a roof over their head, even when anticipating storm damage. It is essential to know whether you need a hurricane damage repair or replacement and the options at hand to have the best service for your money’s worth.
Deciding between a storm damage repair and replacement service
The roof’s age
What is the age of the roof? The roof’s age is an excellent indication of when to get a new one. Roofs older than three decades need replacement because you could end up with a series of repair projects that will never be worth the investment.
A leaky roof is a common reason you will need reroofing or hurricane storm repairs. So which one do you need? A certified roofer will tell you a roof with too many or frequent leaks needs replacement, while minimal leaks will work all right with a few simple repairs. It is always better to start the repair process as soon as you notice a leak before the minor issue turns into a significant problem like a giant hole or a pathway for rotting, mould and structural damage.
Extent of damage
Extensive roof damage will be apparent to the naked eye of the roofer and homeowner. We can help you understand the extent of the roof damage to decide on the details of the reroofing. Check out for the following symptoms:
Old roofing will be old and worn out, with moss, algae and other growths contaminating the structures or areas around the home.
The property’s geography
Do you live in an area susceptible to weather issues like storms and hails? The unfortunate truth is that your roof is more likely to age faster than a home in a calmer area. A typical roof will need repair and replacement on a more regular basis, while hurricane-proof roofing will need regular maintenance to maintain its performance and aesthetics.
No tangible reason
