The right tools for roof replacement

Equipter Right Tools for Replacement

Help homeowners determine the difference between roof repairs and a full roof replacement after leaks or weather events. Save them time and money when you invest in the right tools for the job. 

Homeowners often find themselves hesitant to commit to a full roof replacement, especially when faced with unexpected leaks or uninsured weather damage, which can result in unforeseen costs. As a contractor, it can be daunting to navigate roof replacement decisions with potential customers when they would rather repair their roof instead of opting for a complete replacement. Equipter can be a valuable resource for your company to help customers save money in labor. Help them assess whether their roof is salvageable through repair and if investing in such repairs is a prudent long-term choice.  

There are a few scenarios in which a roof replacement makes sense. If the repair is minor and localized to a specific area of a roof, repair may be the way to go. Patching leaks, sealing flashing, replacing shingles or tiles that have been damaged, and mitigating small areas of rot may make sense depending on the severity of the damage. Roof repair can extend the lifespan of a roof and homeowners that are looking to postpone a larger job may find a benefit in repairs. It is a short-term solution that can buy time. 

There are many situations where a damaged roof cannot be effectively repaired and should be replaced. Extensive, widespread damage from hailstorms or windstorms that have punctured the roof or created other structural damage should be replaced. Homeowners should review their home insurance policy to see if this kind of damage is covered by their plan. Any issues that affect the structural integrity of a roof should steer a homeowner toward a full roof replacement. Repair cannot address deteriorating rafters, extensive leaks, or rot. Some building codes and local ordinances may require roof replacement, particularly if the damage poses a hazard. A professional roofing contractor will be able to best assess damage and the condition that your roof is in and will make recommendations based on a roof inspection. 

When thinking about roof repair versus roof replacement, a homeowner should consider the long-term financial benefit or a total roof replacement. Cumulative repair costs can add up and continually deferring a new roof by paying for multiple repairs can become a money sink. Replacing your roof will increase your home’s value and a contractor who can provide an attractive replacement can greatly increase resale value. Finally, old roofs lack energy-efficient designs. Replacing an old roof can lead to reduced utility bills and long-term savings.

The Equipter can limit the amount of time that crews need on the roof and ensure clean properties free of nails, shingles and other materials.
