Putting a Roof on your House
Your roof is the first line of defence when comes to defending your home against the endless assault that mother nature throws at it. Your roof takes the hot sun on it all day; it takes the brunt of the high winds, the driving rain, the dumping snow, the freezing rain and the pounding hail. No other part of your house is assaulted like the roof of your house.
Fix or replace the roof?
When you should opt to fix the roof
If the roof is leaking, most roof leaks can be repaired without replacing the roof. Most roofs leak due to flashing problems, typically at an intersection of two roof components; roof and plumbing vent, roof and chimney, roof and wall, etc.
When you should opt to replace the roof
Replacing a roof, on the other hand, is something that has to be done periodically, and is seldom done because of an obvious leak. More commonly, the shingles have dried out and become cracked, brittle and deteriorated to the point where the roof remains saturated under the roof shingles, causing slow decay rather than an obvious stick-the-bucket-under-it leak. If your roof is approaching the 20-year mark, replacement is a better way to go.LEARN ABOUT ROOF BASICS
