The Difference Between Roof Replacement And Roof Repair

Roof replacement is the total removal of all old roof shingles and felt paper, replacing them with brand new roof materials. Roof replacement might also involve replacing other parts of the roof like the deck and any other damaged area spotted during the removal of the old roof.

Roof repairs, on the other hand, are focused on repairing damaged areas in the roof without changing the whole roof. Roof repairs can be in two forms; partial replacement and re-roofing.

Partial replacement involves removing all the shingles on a particular side, after which a new roof is installed in that section and merged with the rest of the old roof. Re-roofing is simply adding a layer of roof shingles to the old ones.

5 Signs You Need A New Roof

  1. Duration of use: An asphalt shingle roof lasts for 20 to 25 years, and it is advised that it should be replaced after 20 years. Other types of roofs have different durations. You know when a roof was installed and what type it is essential in determining whether you need a new roof.
  2. Cracked or damaged shingles: Shingles should lie flat against the roof. Patches that are cracked or damaged (especially after a hailstorm) are a sign that repairs are needed.
  3. Shingle granules in the gutters and downspouts: Are you noticing a lot of shingle granules in your gutters and downspouts? That is a clear sign that your roof is near its expiration date.
  4. Rotting boards and sagging spots: A sagging and droopy roof must be replaced. Trapped moisture, rotting boards, and sagging spots, especially at the lowest point in the roof, clearly indicate that your roof is at the end of its useful life.
  5. Beams of light coming through the top of the house: Have you noticed beams of light in the attic coming through the roof? Or stains and water streaks? These are signs of a leaking roof and mean you need help for repairs or replacement. Depending on the severity of the above symptoms, a repair or a total replacement could be recommended.

Cost of Roof Replacement in Charlotte

The cost of roof replacement in Charlotte varies based on the size of your roof, your roofing material, and the quality of shingles.

 Other factors that can affect the cost of roof replacement include:

• Structure of house; multiple-story or single-story
• Roof complexity
• Roof pitch
• Quality of underlayment
• Season; winter, summer, spring

On average, the cost of replacing a roof in Charlotte ranges from $6,400 to $8,500, depending on the abovementioned factors.
The price of asphalt composition shingles per square is $0.80 to $1.80. The average cost of asphalt shingles is $6,750 on a 1,500-square-foot roof.

Typical all-peril home insurance will cover the cost of replacing or repairing your roof in case of damage. Especially if the damage is caused by natural disasters like a storm or hail or a sudden accident like a fire outbreak, your home insurance will cover the cost of replacing your roof. Also, the type of damage covered by your insurance will depend on your policy. The terms of your insurance policy might also be determined by the type and quality of your roof.

You may pay more for home insurance if you have a wood roof. Roofs of 20+ years have a minimal cover. Home insurance allows you to replace or repair your roof without breaking the bank.

Your roof is one part of the house most exposed to the elements and their effects. Heavy snow, hail, storm, and gales are all things that can affect your roof. An aging or damaged roof is not the best protection for your home.
