Repair or Replacement?
Roof repairs are among Dickson Roofing’s most important services. We construct, repair, update and inspect residential and commercial roofs of all sizes and shapes, applying the highest quality materials using cutting-edge techniques.
Quite often, we see individuals replace roofs that still have years of remaining life, but are convinced to re-roof by an aggressive salesperson. We encourage you to consider these factors as you contemplate whether to repair or replace your roof:
Age. The average lifespan of a roof is about 20 years, but this is drastically affected by factors such as the type of roofing materials, how it is ventilated, and the weather conditions it is exposed to. Florida experiences weather extremes throughout the year that will impact your roof.
If your roof is five years old and leaking, the problem is more likely related to a defect in the roofing materials or the quality of the installation. A spot repair may make sense. However, a 20-year-old roof with some problem areas may be near the end of its lifespan; replacing the roof may be the better option.
To achieve long-lasting roofs that withstand regular exposure to the elements, such as saltwater, wind, sun and heat, Dickson Roofing specializes in the very best materials:
- Concrete tile: Concrete tile has a long lifespan of 50+ years
- Clay tile: Lifespans of 50+ years are common for clay tile roofs
- Slate: Slate roofs typically last 50 years and more
- Metal: Metal roofs will last 40 to 70 years, depending on the material
- Wood shake: Wood shake roofs typically last 25 to 30 years
- Flat (low-slope): Flat roofs should last 10 to 20 years in Southwest Florida
Moisture or water damage. Every roof system has multiple components. An important element is the underlayment, the water-resistant or waterproof barrier that is installed directly onto your roof deck. It is applied under all other roofing materials as an added layer of protection from severe weather.
But water is a powerful force. It can quickly find its way inside, where it can cause serious damage and even health problems. If you see signs of moisture inside your home or commercial building, such as brown spots on the ceiling, peeling paint, or mold, your roof is no longer waterproof and re-roofing may be a better option than patching or repairing it.
Recent disaster. From roof leaks to wind damage from fallen tree branches, the aftermath of a violent storm or hurricane can be quite serious and may be extensive enough to require a total roof replacement. Schedule a roof inspection and appropriate repairs for your roof immediately after a major storm to mitigate the damage and prevent more costly and extensive work later on.
