How To Choose Between A New Roof or Restoration

Roof restoration can be a less costly alternative to replacing your roof, which is why it’s important to know the difference so you can decide what’s best for your house. Roof Tek are experts in all things roof and we can help you determine whether your roof can be restored or if it should be swapped out for a new one.


Here’s what you need to know.


Extent of Damage

Our experts can look at your roof and determine what kind of damage you have and the extent to which it is affecting your home. If you simply have a few damaged shingles or only a bit of wear and tear, we can probably restore your roof rather than replacing it. 


However, if you have a lot of damage, it might be best to replace the roof so that you don’t have to worry about other issues arising.


Signs you Need a Replacement

As mentioned above, minor damage or wear and tear means a restoration is a good option. However, there are some signs that a replacement is a better choice. That includes any shingles that are curling or buckling as well as any areas that appear to be sagging. 


If you notice fine granules on the roof, this is a sign that the roof is worn out and starting to degrade and restoration won’t solve the problem. Our experts know what to look for and will help you determine whether your roof can be saved or not. 


Consider the Appearance of Your Roof

While restoration might be possible, it’s a good idea to consider how it’s going to look. You might not like the way that the newer areas are more prominent the older ones. If you think about your property value, the curb appeal of your roof plays a big role so keep that in mind as you make your decision. 


How Often to Replace

We recommend replacing your roof when it wears out or shows a lot of damage. This could be every 5 years or you could go 20 years between replacements. Proper care of your roof and doing regular maintenance can significantly impact the lifespan of your roof. 


We can help you detect problems and can give you tips for taking care of your roof.
