Roof repair costs can vary greatly based on several factors. Your first step in figuring out how much a roof repair will cost you is to call and schedule a free roof inspection – we’ll be able to tell you the extent of repairs necessary as well as how much it’s likely to cost based on the types of materials you choose.
What Goes Into Roof Repair Costs?
No two roofs are exactly alike, and that means there’s no simple answer for how much roof repair costs. When your inspector is giving you an estimate, he or she will consider several factors, including:
- The size of your roof
- How steep your roof is
- The extent of the damage and how much needs to be repaired
- What types of materials you used on your original roof
- What types of materials you choose for the repairs
Roof repairs don’t cost as much as full roof replacement does. In fact, you may able to hold off on a complete replacement for quite some time just by having repairs performed – saving you even more money in the long run.
Why Roof Repair is Necessary
In many cases, roof repairs are necessary to protect your home. Like most things, if you leave minor issues alone, they’ll quickly turn into big issues – and those big issues can cost you a lot of money. For example, a small roof leak might not seem like a big deal. However, over time, the leak will become bigger and let in more water (and potentially pests, too).
Waiting to repair your roof can be a huge gamble.
Even a small leak can lead to mold growth, which can be toxic to you, your family and your pets. It can also lead to structural damage within your home; if water seeps into your ceilings or walls, you could be facing catastrophe.
Average Roof Repair Costs
While every roof repair job is different – and so are the related costs – the average American spends between $300 and $1,100 to fix a roof on a moderately sized home (one that’s between 1,500 and 2,000 square feet). That’s significantly less than a complete roof replacement, and definitely less than fixing structural damage to your home, which means that it’s a smarter choice to make repairs as necessary rather than waiting until the entire roof needs to be replaced.
When your roof is significantly damaged – say, when you had a small leak but let it go until it became a big leak – you’ll end up paying more for roof repairs than you would have if you’d addressed the issue earlier.
