Whether you’re dealing with a roof leak, ventilation problems, or recent storm damage, chances are you want to get it fixed quickly.
If left ignored, your roof will continue to deteriorate, costing you even more money on repairs in the long run. There are several ways you can estimate how long your roof repair will last before additional repairs may be needed.
How Long Do Roof Repairs Last?
The length of time a roof repair will last depends on the extent of the damage your roof has sustained and the experience of the roofers performing the repair. Some issues like missing roof shingles or corroded flashing are easy to fix and will last for quite some time after they’ve been replaced. Other times, the cost of repairing your roof may exceed the cost of investing in a new roof installation. If your damaged roof is nearing the end of its lifespan anyway, it may not be cost-effective to spend a lot of money on a repair which won’t last long.
Common Factors Influencing your Roof’s Lifespan
Extreme temperature fluctuations and severe weather events will reduce your roof’s lifespan over time. Water damage can be especially catastrophic to a roof system. A roof leak will cause wood components in your roof to warp and contribute to the growth of mold in your home. It’s a good idea to have your roof inspected at least twice a year to locate any problems before they get worse. Repairing problems the moment they are found is the best way to get more years out of your roof.
