Roof Repair or Roof Replacement?

Roof Repair or Roof Replacement?

At DK Haney Roofing, we take pride in offering commercial roofing maintenance in Fort Worth, TX. Often times, commercial roof owners are conflicted about whether to have their roof repaired, or have it replaced. Here are some of the things to consider when deciding between roof repair or roof replacement:


Roof repair will save you money in the short term, as its less expensive than replacing the entire roof. With that said, if your roof needs constant repairs, the maintenance money will start to add up to the point where it no longer makes sense. Do a budget projection of the next 5 years, to determine whether or not investing in a new roof is the best financial option moving forward.

Expected Lifespan

Much of this decision stems on the remaining lifespan of the roof. How old is your roof? If it is 15-20 years old or less, you should at least try to get it repaired. If your roof is much older than that, 25 years or more, replacement starts looking like the most realistic option. Check your maintenance records to determine the age and expected lifespan of the structure.

Storm Damage

Has your roof been subjected to severe storms? Lighting, hail, tornado debris, torrential rain, etc,? Each time a storm occurs, it has the potential to cause significant damage to your commercial roof. As those damages begin to pile up, the lifespan expectancy of your roof goes down considerably, increasing the benefits of a roof replacement.
