Repair vs. Replace: Finding the Right Roofing Solution

 

THE COMPLETE ROOF REPLACEMENT IS USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH COSTS AND LONG EXECUTION TIMES, HOWEVER, AS IT TURNS OUT, SOMETIMES A ROOF REPLACEMENT IS INEVITABLE AND IS A MUCH BETTER SOLUTION THAN PAYING FOR ROOF REPAIRS.

AFTER A CERTAIN PERIOD OF USE, EACH ROOF REQUIRES REPLACEMENT OR AT LEAST A FULL RENOVATION. THE CONDITION OF THE ROOF HAS A HUGE IMPACT ON THE SAFETY OF HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS AND THE BUILDING ITSELF, THEREFORE ANY DEFECTS SHOULD BE REMOVED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. IF A ROOF DOES NOT MEET THE CURRENT SAFETY STANDARDS, IT MUST BE COMPLETELY REPLACED. EACH ROOF IS EXPOSED TO UNFAVORABLE EXTERNAL FACTORS. AS TIME PASSES BY IT’S GETTING OLD AND ITS INSULATION PARAMETERS ARE GETTING WORSE AND WORSE. A SYSTEMATIC INSPECTION WILL CERTAINLY EXTEND ITS LIFE, BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT WILL NOT ELIMINATE THE NEED TO REPLACE IT AFTER A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME.

Repair: Finding the Right Roofing Solution

Why are we usually more tempted by doing simple repairs than having a full roof replacement?

FIRST OF ALL, IT HAS TO DO WITH COSTS. EACH MAJOR ROOF RENOVATION REQUIRES PROFESSIONAL HELP FROM WELL-TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED ROOFERS, WHO WILL CHARGE FOR ALL THE MATERIALS, AS WELL AS FOR THEIR LABOR. HOWEVER, IT MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT THAT A FEW SIMPLE REPAIRS WON’T SOLVE MANY PROBLEMS, WHICH IS WHEN A ROOF REPLACEMENT IS SEEN AS THE BEST SOLUTION AND THE ONLY OPTION.

Start With a Professional Roof Inspection

roof-inspection GVRD RoofingA POORLY CONDUCTED, SUPERFICIAL INSPECTION DONE BY A PERSON WITHOUT PROFESSIONAL KNOWLEDGE WILL NOT OUTLINE THE SCALE OF REPAIRS THAT REALLY NEED TO BE CARRIED OUT. THEREFORE, A ROOF INSPECTION SHOULD BE DONE BY SPECIALISTS. CALL ULTIMATE ROOFING SOLUTIONS IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A PROFESSIONAL ROOFING CONTRACTOR IN LOMBARD WHO WILL DO A THOROUGH ROOF INSPECTION OF YOUR ROOF. ONE OF OUR ROOFERS WILL INSPECT YOUR ROOFING AND PERFORM THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES:

– LOOK FOR PLACES WHERE THE ROOF IS LEAKING – CHECK FOR S STAINS THAT APPEAR BOTH ON YOUR WALLS AND ON THE CEILING. ROOF LEAKS USUALLY RESULT IN BROKEN TILES OR BENT SHEET METAL.

– INSPECT THE GUTTER – ANOTHER ELEMENT OF THE ROOF THAT CAN BE DAMAGED ESPECIALLY AFTER WINTER. GUTTERS CAN BE, FOR EXAMPLE, DAMAGED BY SNOW OR CLOGGED WITH LEAVES, MOSS, AND DIRT. IN THE SECOND CASE, A THOROUGH CLEANING WILL GET RID OF THE ACCUMULATION OF DEBRIS, AND IN THE FIRST CASE, THE HELP OF A SPECIALIST WILL BE NECESSARY. GUTTERS INSTAlLATIONS.

– CHECK THE ATTIC – WHEN INSPECTING THE ATTIC, THE CONDITION OF THE INSULATION AND THE FORMWORK OF THE STRUCTURE SHOULD BE CAREFULLY INSPECTED.

THE CONDITION OF OUR ROOF WILL BE BEST ASSESSED BY A SPECIALIST. HE OR SHE WILL NOTICE PROBLEMS WITH THE ATTIC, LOCATE ANY LEAKAGE POINTS, ASSESS THE RELIABILITY OF THE ROOF STRUCTURE, E.G. WHETHER IT WILL BE ABLE TO BEAR THE WEIGHT OF A NEW COVERING.

When To Repair a Roof?

GVRD RoofingOF COURSE, THERE ARE ALSO SITUATIONS WHERE A ROOF REPAIR WILL SUFFICE. OFTEN, IT IS ENOUGH TO DISASSEMBLE A PART OF THE ROOFING TO GET TO THE FLASHING, AND THEN REPLACE OR DISMANTLE IT AND REPLACE IT CORRECTLY. SUCH A SIMPLE PROCEDURE WILL END PROBLEMS WITH A LEAKING ROOF AND YOU WILL NOT NEED TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE COVERING WITH A NEW ONE.

IF YOU HAVE SHINGLES, A PROFESSIONAL ROOFER WILL EASILY ACCESS AND REPLACE ANY SINGLE DAMAGED SHINGLES AND POSSIBLY ELIMINATE SMALL LEAKAGE PROBLEMS. HOWEVER, YOU MUST KEEP IN MIND THAT THE NEW PRODUCT MAY STAND OUT FROM THE ONE THAT’S CURRENTLY ON THE ROOF, WHICH MAY BE MORE FADED OR DIRTY.

A METAL ROOF CAN BE TEMPORARILY PATCHED, FOR EXAMPLE WITH SPECIAL SEALING TAPES. HOWEVER, IT IS ALWAYS ONLY A POSTPONEMENT OF A MAJOR RENOVATION. THE ROOF CAN OF COURSE BE CLEANED AND SOMETIMES ALSO PAINTED.

USUALLY, THE ROOF CAN BE REPAIRED A NUMBER OF TIMES, HOWEVER, THERE IS ONE CONDITION: IT MUST BE ABLE TO BEAR AN ADDITIONAL LAYER OF MATERIAL.

When To Invest In a Roof Replacement?

THERE ARE SEVERAL SIGNALS WHEN A ROOF SHOULD DEFINITELY BE REPLACED. THESE INCLUDE, AMONG OTHERS: LOOSE, CRACKED OR DAMAGED SHINGLES ON A LARGE AREA OF THE ROOFING SYSTEM, SIGNS OF WATER DAMAGE OR LEAKING, DAMAGE TO THE INSULATION AND MOLD GROWTH. IF THE STRUCTURE OF THE ROOF HAS BEEN DAMAGED IN ANY WAY, THE NECESSITY TO REPLACE THE ROOF SHOULD ALSO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. SUCH DAMAGE MIGHT HAVE BEEN INFLICTED BY MOLD, FUNGUS, MOISTURE OR ROT OF THE ROOF STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS. SOMETIMES SYMPTOMS OF WEAR OF THESE ELEMENTS CAN BE SEEN DURING A VISIT TO THE ATTIC: IF THE SUPPORTING STRUCTURE IS IN ANY WAY ALTERED, CRACKED OR OTHERWISE DAMAGED – IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE REINFORCEMENT. IT IS ALSO WORTH LOOKING AT THE SHAPE AND GEOMETRY OF THE ROOF ITSELF FROM THE OUTSIDE; ANY DEVIATION FROM THE NORM (A TILT, COLLAPSE, OR ANY OTHER VISIBLE DEFLECTION) IS AN INDICATION THAT YOU NEED A ROOF REPLACEMENT IMMEDIATELY.

COMPLETE REPLACEMENT OF THE ROOFING MATERIAL IS ALSO RECOMMENDED WHEN THE BUILDING IS COVERED WITH ASBESTOS-CONTAINING MATERIAL. FINALLY – IT IS WORTH REMEMBERING THAT ONLY MINOR REPAIRS CAN BE CARRIED OUT WITHOUT THE NEED TO OBTAIN APPROPRIATE PERMITS.

GVRDRoofingThe replacement of the roof should be done by a professional team of roofing contractorswho will obtain all require permits from the appropriate municipalities.

A ROOF REPLACEMENT IS USUALLY PRETTY COSTLY, BUT STILL IT PAYS OFF TO DO IT. FIRST OF ALL, THE HOUSE WILL LOOK BETTER. WHEN REPLACING THE ROOF, YOU CAN MAKE CERTAIN CHANGES AND UPDATES, WHICH WILL ALSO BE BENEFICIAL FOR THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE ATTIC AND THE ENTIRE ROOFING SYSTEM. DURING THE RENOVATION, IT IS POSSIBLE TO REPLACE DAMAGED, WORN-OUT OR OBSOLETE ROOF ELEMENTS. IT IS ALSO A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE THERMAL INSULATION MATERIAL. DURING A ROOF REPLACEMENT, WE’LL BE ABLE TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL LAYER OF INSULATION AND REPLACE THE OLD ONE WITH A NEW ONE WITH MUCH BETTER PARAMETERS. IN ADDITION, RE-ROOFING WILL ALSO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO REPLACE YOUR SKYLIGHTS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT WHEN THE CURRENT LOCATION OF THE WINDOWS ISN’T SATISFYING.

A MAJOR RENOVATION IS ALSO THE BEST WAY TO GET RID OF FUNGUS AND CHANGE THE HEIGHT OF THE ATTIC OR THE ENTIRE GEOMETRY OF THE ROOF.
