Have you experienced a windstorm, thunderstorm, or hail recently? Any of these instances is more than enough to damage your roof. But what if only half of your roof was damaged? Do you still need to replace the entire roof?
Well, depending on the damage, you can replace part of your roof to make it as good as new! Here are a few instances in which you can replace part of a roof. Here are a few instances in which you can replace part of a roof.
Replacing Roof Shingles
Roof shingles aren’t too big of an issue. Thunderstorms or windstorms can often cause a few shingles to fall off your roof. However, missing, torn or curled shingles aren’t difficult to replace. You will need to call a professional to have a look at your roof. They will let you know about the damage to the underlayment of the roof and probably replace them with some new ones.
However, one thing to remember is that the longer you take to call a professional roofer, the more damage the missing shingles can cause to the underlayment of your roof. Moreover, this extensive damage can end up costing you a great deal of money.
Another main concern is trying to match the shade and color of the existing roof when patching up the shingles. If your roof is considerably old, it may have suffered damage and color fading over the years. So, even if you get same-colored shingles, they probably won’t match your roof. However, if adding these shingles adds life to your roof for a few more years, a little patch of shingles won’t matter.
Patching Areas of Your Roof
Besides shingles, a specific area of your roof can also be damaged. If the patches are relatively small, replacing them can be a good idea. However, before that, call a professional roofer to come and examine your roof properly. They will probably take a look to see if there’s been any water damage to the underlayment of the roof.
Your roof can easily be patched if there’s no serious water damage. However, you need to be aware that the newly replaced patches of your roof won’t match the color of the existing roof. Over time, your roof experiences weathering. This makes it difficult to match the new patches with the old ones. So, if you don’t mind having a patchy look for your roof, you can replace part of it.
If your roof requires minor changes, you can call a professional roofer to help you out. However, it is better to replace the entire roof if more than half of your roof requires repairing. Moreover, re-roofing will help extend the life of your roof alongside ensuring color and quality consistency.
