When water leaks into your home, it can be difficult to determine where the water is coming from and how much damage was done. We can assess whether your roof is easily fixable, or a potential risk! Our Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractors ensure you understand the state of your roof. Here are five factors you should consider when weighing the options of getting a roof replacement or repair.

Age of Roof

What year was your roof installed? The materials used may need an update! Repairs on older rooftops can add up over time, so consider investing in a roof replacement to avoid the extra costs!

Roof Leaks

  • Mold
  • Damaged ceilings
  • Wet or destroyed insulation
  • Rooting framing and roof sheathing
