If you’ve noticed that one area of your roof is looking a little worse for wear, you’re probably curious if you can get just that one spot repaired. After all, getting the entire roof done when it’s only one section in need seems like a waste of your time and money. So today Roofstar is here to answer the question: Can you repair just a section of a roof?
The Question: Can You Repair Just a Section of a Tile Roof?
You’ve taken a look at your roof – maybe during an inspection, or maybe you just noticed after coming home from work – and you see a spot that clearly needs a little TLC. It could be that the tiles or underlayment are damaged or missing.Or it could be that there’s a leak in only one area. Whatever the reason, you want to get it fixed – but you don’t want to deal with the hassle of getting your entire roof replaced..
The Answer: Roofstar Says
The short answer is: yes, you can absolutely get just one section of your roof repaired. In fact, if it’s a problem with a simple solution, you can get it done in just one day, with minimal disruption to your daily routine.
Can You Replace Part of a Asphalt Shingle Roof?
Again, the short answer is “Yes”. If the problem is more severe and requires replacement instead of just a repair, the answer becomes a little trickier. Typically, it depends on how much of your roof is damaged, and what exactly the damage is. Some damage is only visible on certain parts of your roof, but indicate that there is a much larger problem underneath that would necessitate replacing the entire roof. It may not be possible to get new shingles to match your existing color as shingle manufacturers are often changing their color blends. Even if the same manufacturer and color are available the match will not be exact as there is slight color differences in each manufacturing run.
In addition, if only half your roof needs to be replaced, it may be worth it to replace the entire roof anyway. Having only half your roof replaced can cause problems, such as your roof having a split lifespan (one half will need to be replaced due to age sooner), a contrasting appearance, and potential problems with your warranty.
In general, if you have the resources, it’s often worth it to replace your entire roof instead of just a portion of it – chances are it will save you money and energy in the long run, even if it doesn’t seem worth the extra money up front.
