The Costs of NOT Replacing Your Roof

    Naturally in my profession, I get people asking me all the time about how much a roof costs. This is to be completely expected but there is a flip side to this question: what are the costs of NOT replacing your roof?

 

Now, perhaps you think that that is self-serving since we have a vested interest in putting roofs on. Fair point, but the question is legitimate. Having to fix water damage from a leaky roof can be significantly more expensive than having a new roof put on.

 

    But there are other factors to consider than just drywall replacement and new paint. It is not uncommon for water damage to affect your electrical system as well.  This can affect everything from your lighting, to your heat, stove, fridges etc, etc. Not only that, but after all these problems you still need a new roof to negate these problems once you have them resolved!

 

    With every single quote we do, we take pictures and try to give homeowners an honest evaluation of whether or not replacing your roof is your best option. We never want to push people into a new roof when theirs still has a few years of mileage left on it. We even wrote about how homeowners should get multiple estimates and opinions, whether they should repair instead of replace, and how they can make their roof last longer.

 

    At Peak Roofing, we have built our business on reputation and customer satisfaction over the long term. We want to be the company that you can’t wait to suggest to your friends and family. We want to be the company that you come back to when you move to a new house, or even the company that you hire in 25 years when your new roof wears out! We are not interested in playing a short term game of “convincing” people that they need the work done now. At the same time, we want to prevent any further issues that people might have as it pertains to their roof!
    We are always just a phone call away and are happy to arrange free estimates or simply give a bit of advice on what we would advise for your personal situation. You can reach us by phone at 905-746-5792 or by e-mail at [email protected]. Stay safe out there homeowners!

    Great advice. Replacing a roof is definitely expensive, but the costs of mould related illnesses, renovation costs, repair costs and the disruption to your family easily become much more expensive.

      A man who knows what he’s talking about! You’re totally spot on. I just did a $300 repair for a guy who had a new roof put on with BP shingles. I told him the difference between BP and a quality shingle would have been about what he just paid me and yet now he still has to live out the remaining life of the roof with a poor quality product. Doing quality work the first time (both in workmanship and materials) pays dividends in the long run. Thanks for the comment Tony!
