The idiom “to have a roof over your head” starts to make sense when your roof does not look or function the way it used to. When passersby or visitors look at a neglected roof, they are quick to assume that the overall house is poorly maintained.   At RoofCrafters, we know you wouldn’t intentionally allow your roof to deteriorate. I mean, roof replacements are expensive, right? Our contractors have over 28 years of experience conducting estimates, so we know there are times when the roof is not as bad as the client originally thought.   So, can a roof be repaired instead of replaced? The answer to this question is not a simple yes or no. There is a lot to consider before you plan to repair or replace your roof.

 As homeowners, oftentimes we don't realize the importance of a sound roofing system until something drastic happens. Life gets busy, and while your roof may be okay on sunny days,  if you find yourself breaking out Memaw's serving dishes to collect the running water from your ceiling on the rainy ones, it may be time to consider a roof replacement.   Maybe you've known for quite some time that you need a new roof, but you're unsure of the costs, or you just don't think it's within your budget. So, in turn, you've let your roof go. Listen to RoofCrafters when we say that there is no shame here. Different people have different priorities, and at the end of the day, sometimes a new roof is at the end of that list.
