Obviously, your roof is critical to your home’s infrastructure and when problems occur the decision to replace or repair is of vital importance. The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends hiring a qualified roof inspector (approximately $200) to examine these issues:
- How long will the current roof last? What signs of deterioration are there?
- How long will flashing and other parts last?
- How likely are additional leaks?
- Can repairs match the look of the current roof?
Roof replacement is expensive but, given signs of deterioration, may be inevitable.
