Roof repair or replacement is a decision that all homeowners have to deal with at some point. A roof repair includes things like mending damaged parts of the roof and fixing roof leaks. A small leak may not seem like much of a repair, but you really need a reliable roofer to analyze what caused the leak and figure out if it’s part of a bigger problem.
A roof replacement, on the other hand, is a complete re-roofing that could sometimes mean replacing the existing material with another. Both types of roofing work are important and require the skill of a Kernersville or Greensboro NC roofing contractor who is reliable and trustworthy. We at Triad Installations are committed in providing you with the best service for your roofs.
In most cases, it may seem that the decision for roof repair versus roof replacement is an easy one. For example, a small leaking problem in a section of your roof simple means a minor repair. However, if weathering and age have caused significant deterioration to most of your roof, a roof replacement becomes the more sensible option. A simple, inexpensive repair to the area leaking may not solve your overall problem a few months down the road.
Our roofing experts in Kernersville and Greensboro can help you make this decision easier. Sometimes insurance will cover the cost of an entire roof, minus your deductible. Triad Installations professionals will be available to discuss the condition of your roof with the insurance company when they come to look at the damage on your roof.
Our people at Triad Installations are comfortable talking with your home owner’s insurance representative and knowledgeable in presenting to them the information they need to process your roofing claim. Call us before contacting your insurance adjustor.
Some roofing materials last longer than others. Materials such as slate and tiles don’t usually require repairs unless the roof is 70 years or older. Metal roofing is another material that is very long lasting and hardly ever needs repair (slate and tiles have long life spans but require occasional repairs due to brittleness).
The choice of a roof repair or a roof replacement is more difficult if your roof is made of asphalt. Asphalt roofs are very popular and less expensive during the initial installation, but are the least durable of roofing materials and require more maintenance and repair than the other roofing materials.
