When your roof is damaged, it’s understandable if your first instinct is to have a roof repair job done instead of an outright replacement. After all, it is possible that whatever issues you’re dealing with can be solved by a simple patch job and it is a less cost alternative to a replacement. Unfortunately, there are some instances when a repair project just won’t do for your roof any longer and a replacement is necessary instead.

Here, Sully Jones Roofing reveals when you should have your roof replaced instead of repaired.

Extensive Damage

If your roof sustained minimal damage during a storm, then it’s acceptable to simply have a patch job done to prevent leaks, pest infestation, and other kinds of damage that can cause further issues for your roof and your home. However, if 40% or more of your roof is damaged, it’s strongly recommended by experts that you call a residential roof replacement professional to your home to replace the roof instead of having it repaired.


On the other hand, before you make the decision between a repair or replacement project, consider checking the age of your roof. If your roof is more than 20 years old, it’s more beneficial to have it replaced instead of repaired. This is because your roof is almost at the end of its lifespan and will need repairs more frequently than ever. With the one time investment of a roof replacement, you’ll be able to save a significant amount as opposed to repeatedly repairing the roofing system.
