How To Know Whether To Repair, Patch, Or Replace Your Roof

A roof’s main purpose is to offer you and your family protection from any storms, critters, and also heat. Whether you are a homeowner or the owner of a company, you should know that your roof is a very important element of any home or building. Here are the signs and things to do when it comes to determining whether your roof needs to be patched, repaired, or replaced.

When To Patch

If your roof is minorly damaged by a limb or Mother Nature and your roof is somewhat young, it might only need a quick patching job. Calling out a trustworthy team is the best thing to do because they know how to fix a roof if it’s exposed and put everything back together as it should be. Having to only patch your roof is the best case scenario. After a roof is all patched up, it’s smart to keep an eye on that area of the roof just to make sure everything is intact and still patched perfectly. 

When To Repair

There are lots of signs that you may usually see when it comes to knowing when you need to repair your roof. These can be signs like curled or cracked shingles, leaks, high energy bills, outside light shining into your attic, and lots more. It might be hard, especially for someone who isn’t a roofing expert, to know when to take action. Here at Craftsman Roofing, we do offer free inspections and will let you know what your roof needs as well as get the job done for you whether it be repairing, replacing, or patching your roof for you. 

When to Replace

A roof will protect you for a long amount of time if you take care of it properly and keep it maintained on a schedule. But, no roof lasts forever and the time will come for you to have to replace it. When do you know when it’s time though? Sometimes the signs are obvious like if your roof is super old but there are some other signs to bet on the lookout for. If you have repaired your roof several times but for some reason you are seeing your walls or ceilings are discolored, this is a sign that you need to replace your roof. 


If you don’t know what your roof needs but you know something is wrong, do your research and call a company to come look at it as soon as possible. Your roof may only need patching but if you don’t take action and get the attention it needs and fast, that damage can lead to repair or even a whole replacement.
