To Repair or To Replace....? THAT is the Question...
We, here at Exterior Specialists, often receive calls from homeowners who have recently discovered a water stain on their ceiling or water down the interior walls of their home. Sometimes it's obvious, from the exterior, where the roof has failed... however, often times it requires a closer inspection, which is why our Free Estimates give you the information and options you need to make the best, informed decision for your home.
In some cases, a repair will do the trick and in others a replacement may be in order. With any decision, information is your best asset! Here are a few things to consider in the debate between repair or replace:
COST: This is obviously the main concern for most home or business owners. We will provide an estimate for recommended repair and replacement cost to evaluate for your unique situation.
Warranty: This is something many don't consider. Exterior Specialists warranties ALL of our work with a workmanship warranty, however a new roof comes with an additional materials warranty, as well. This becomes even more critical if the cause for your initial repair could be found in more places in the near future due to the current condition of your existing roof.
Aesthetics: We've all seen it. Patch spots on roofs with dark spots where new shingles have been placed surrounded by faded, existing shingles. Here in the south, especially, your roof takes a beating from all four seasons and unfortunately, unlike painting, there is little to be done in way of "blending" to make it less obvious. A repair, however, gives you a fresh, new look for your home or business' most noticeable feature.
Value: If you are considering the sell of your home or building, a newly installed roof with existing warranty is a invaluable to potential purchasers. This avoids headaches in the inspection process and offers the peace of mind to shoppers that your home has been maintained to the highest standards. Not to mention, in many cases, insurance will even cover the majority of the cost of replacement.
At the end of the day, every situation is different and we approach each client with an individualized, custom plan and estimate. Exterior Specialists is a licensed local roofing company that can resolve your exterior building or home needs, no matter what the cause or situation... we offer a solution.
