Need A Roof Repair or Roof Replacement ?

W L Roofing Helps You Decide

Your roof is your home’s first line of defence against the elements. But what happens when that defence shows signs of wear and tear? W L Roofing Ltd can help.

Here at W L Roofing, we understand that roof repairs can be a significant investment, and you want to make the best choice for your home. So, should you repair or replace your roof?

Let’s break down the key factors to consider:

  • Age of Your Roof: Roofs, like all things, have a lifespan. Asphalt shingles typically last 15-20 years, while metal roofs can last 40-70 years. If your roof is nearing the end of its expected lifespan, replacing it might be the smarter long-term decision.
  • Extent of Damage: Small issues like missing shingles or a minor leak can often be repaired. However, widespread damage, sagging rooflines, or signs of water infiltration throughout the attic might indicate a more systemic problem requiring a full replacement.
  • Cost vs. Value: A roof repair is typically cheaper upfront than a replacement. But consider the cost of future repairs. Patching a roof repeatedly can become expensive over time. Replacing the entire roof upfront can be a more cost-effective solution in the long run.
  • Curb Appeal and Resale Value: A new roof not only protects your home, but it also boosts your curb appeal and can increase your home’s resale value.

Here’s when a Repair Might Be Right:

  • The damage is limited to a small area.
  • Your roof is less than halfway through its expected lifespan.
  • The repair cost is significantly less than the replacement cost.

Here’s When a Replacement Might Be Necessary:

  • Your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan (asphalt shingle: 15-20 years).
  • There is widespread damage across the roof.
  • You’re experiencing leaks in multiple areas.
  • You want to improve your home’s energy efficiency (newer roofs often use better materials).
  • You’re planning to sell your home soon (a new roof increases resale value).
