Questions to ask
What is the age of your roof?
If it under 20 years, you may be able to fix the roof with a less costly solution. If it is over 20 years, you may be looking at a new roof.
What’s the damage?
It could be as simple as wind that caused a shingle(s) to come off which can be easily repaired. If you assess that there is more damage such as shingles that appear to be buckling, an increased amount of shingle granules in your gutters, or damage to flashing, it could be time to have your roof replaced. What percentage of the total roof surface needs repair?
What’s the climate in your area?
Are you prone to hurricanes and high winds? If yes, you’ll need to address the roof leak and fix it.
