Should you replace or repair your roof?
Most leaks occur when the roof meets an adjoining roof or where a vent or chimney
is passing through the roof and the flashing is no longer sealed adequately.
As your roof ages it loses the oils in the the shingle and they become brittle, at this point wind can cause them to break and expose the under layer.
The points of where the shingle is nailed to the roof is now exposed to the elements, this is when small leaks happen that may not result in you seeing any water in the home or building but trapping moisture in the underlayment. Over time the underlayment will begin to rot the roof sheathing, and weaken the roof, or even damage the rafters. The result is what was a simple and quick fix now becomes a costly repair. This type of roof damage will require replacement.
