Undoubtedly, replacing your roof is expensive and one of the most significant home improvement investments. That’s why it’s no surprise that most homeowners put it off. Most homeowners even prefer multiple repairs instead of a complete roof replacement, which is understandable.
However, what they may be missing is that there’s more harm associated with putting off a replacement and having repairs repeatedly.
So, if you’re one homeowner who has been avoiding the roof replacement route, well, it’s time you know the hidden costs you’ve been tucking away.
- Repeated repairs are costly
This is quite obvious. When your shingles are at the end of their lifespan, no amount of roof repairs can fix the issue.
However, if you choose to go the multiple repair route, you stand to spend a lot more money, which can cover a total roof replacement if accumulated. So, instead of cutting corners that won’t yield good results, how about requesting a quote for a roof replacement and working your way from there?
- Roof leaks lead to rotten plywood and more
Roof leaks are a slight problem with significant damage. If your roof is constantly leaking, a repair will not fix the rot that has developed in the sheets of plywood underneath.
Roof leaks also affect the attic insulation and damage interior walls and ceilings. This means you’ll not just be dealing with roof repairs alone; you’ll also have to purchase new plywood, repair the insulation, and do some interior repairs. If you want to escape high repair costs, be proactive about a roof replacement.
- Electrical issues
Once the water from the leaking roof gets to your ceiling, you risk interfering with the electrical connections in your home, which is very dangerous. The physics of water and electricity is never a fun moment.
On top of that, you’ll need to fix your electrical connections. There’s no way around it: electrical issues are not cheap. This is a problem that an early roof repair or a roof replacement could have fixed.
So, instead of putting off roof problems, start acting now and act fast.
