When To Repair, Patch or Replace Your Roof

The roof over your head is just as important as what you keep under it! Unfortunately, your roof may need some care and attention over its lifetime. Making good decisions about your roof is essential to keeping near and long-term costs to a minimum. Our team at Carolina Custom Contractors has come up with a list to help you know what to look for before repairing, patching, or replacing your roof.

General Warning Signs:

  • Cracked, Curled, or Missing Shingles
  • Discoloration (Algae & Moss Growth)
  • Rot
  • Inside Leaks
  • Sunlight Peaks Into The Attic
  • Shingle Granules In The Gutters

When to Repair or Patch Your Roof:

Whether you’re missing a few shingles after a storm or need to just patch a small leak, replacing your whole roof may not be necessary. If only a small area is affected, making simple repairs is your best option and can be easy and fairly inexpensive compared to reroofing your entire home. 

When to Replace Your Roof:

Unfortunately, every roof needs to be replaced eventually. Depending on the age and current condition of your roof, the climate where you live, and the possibility of future damage, it may be in your best interest to go ahead and replace it. If you’re missing a lot of shingles or notice a lot of shingle debris in the gutters or your roof starts sagging, it’s time for a new roof!
