To Repair or To Re-Roof the Flat Roof: That is the question!

shinglesYour flat roof is a prime candidate for repairs or re-roofing. Its low slope allows for water to pool, thereby creating the possibility of leaks. It also collects storm debris that can cause damage. When considering whether to repair or to re-roof your flat roof, the first step is to contact a roofer. After a thorough roof inspection, the professionals at Big Fish Roofing will work with you to determine the best action to take. Some things that will be considered include the following:

• How old is your roof? If your roof is on the downside of its lifespan, especially if it is nearing the end, you may find that it will be better to repair rather than to re-roof.

• What type of damage has your roof experienced? Minor leaking may be easily repairable, and deteriorated shingles may be easily restored. Extensive damage may be beyond repair, however. Reroofing will more than likely be your best route. Depending on the type of damage, this process might be covered by homeowner’s insurance. Contact your insurance agent soon after the damage occurs.

• What are your long-range plans? If you are not planning to be in your home for long, the most budget friendly choice may be to repair rather than to re-roof. However, if you are already in your dream “forever” home, a new roof will not only add life to it but also will add to your home’s value. In this case, it is a large financial investment that will result in years of positive return for you.
