How to Tell if You Need Roof Repairs or a Replacement?, Morgan, Ohio

Ohio isn't immune to severe weather, and, unfortunately, it can wreak havoc on your roof. When damage occurs, it's important to the integrity of your entire structure to act quickly, but first, you need to determine if you need minor roof repairs or a complete replacement. The answer is seldom as forthright as many homeowners imagine, but you can make the process easier by following the three steps below.

3 Steps to Identify Whether You Need a Roof Repair or Replacement

1. Inspect the Exterior

Once you suspect that your roof may be damaged, the first thing you should do is inspect the exterior of your home. Start with a quick walk to look for signs of damage that are visible from the ground. A few fallen shingles or rusted flashing can be rectified with repairs, but if you notice sloping or substantial missing pieces, you're probably going to need a complete roof replacement.

2. Check the Interior of Your Home

Dark or stained areas on the ceiling are common indicators the damage is serious and you'll need at least a partial roof replacement. If there isn't any evidence of leaks on the inside of the home, you may be able to restore your roof with a few simple repairs.

3. Contact a Professional

The best way to determine what actions your roof needs is by contacting a qualified and trustworthy professional roofer. They'll be able to complete a thorough inspection of your structure and provide their recommended course of action. They can also work directly with your insurance provider to ease the stress of filing a claim.
