Houston Roof Repair vs. Houston Roof Replacement

When to Get a New Houston Roof…

We know re-roofing a house is EXPENSIVE…..but let’s consider a few real points.

#1. All of us have seen the so-called Bandit signs at the intersections while we are waiting on that extremely l-o-n-g light to change….they appeal to you by saying:

“Roof Leak Repairs- $99- Lifetime warranty”

So you think, well, that sounds pretty good….but how do you know just how many roof leaks you have on your Houston roof?

I can guarantee you that it will not be just one. No one in their right mind is going to drive to your house, get into a 120 degree attic and fix that one leak for $99. No one….that’s why we don’t suggest leak repairs. They are hard to find and very hard to fix.

Warranty? Whose lifetime? Yours? Theirs? For the first leak or the 7th leak? There are just too many variables in repairing a leaking roof.

While generally more expensive upfront, a new roof may save money in the long run by avoiding the added-up costs of multiple repairs or additional damage. If your Houston roof is over 20 years old, it could need replacing. If you aren’t sure if it needs to be, then get it inspected and let someone who knows what kind of condition it is in tell you.

Additionally, a new roof offers the following perks:

  • Aesthetics and curb appeal: Roofs typically make up a large portion of your home’s outward appearance. Not only does a new roof look attractive, but it also gives you the opportunity to choose a new color or style of shingle.
  • Increased energy efficiency: Today’s roofing materials have improved greatly in regard to keeping out the elements and reflecting sunlight.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that the people and things you value most are protected from the elements while under your roof helps lessen stress during heavy rains and high winds.
  • Re-roof pricing will not go down, so the roof you buy this month or this year will cost you more, perhaps much more in the years ahead.
