This is a common question and fundamentally depends on two factors: How bad the existing roof is and your budget. The only way to know how bad the roof really is is to get a un-biased professional opinion. Some companies only do roof replacements so they will only try and sell you a new roof. Some only do restorations and will tell you you can get 20 years more out of your roof when atually it really is best to replace it now.
One important thing to remember though is: “The longer you leave it, the more likely it is that water will get into places it shouldn’t.”
If you are wondering if you should get your roof replaced or restored the best thing to do is to get a free inspection done and a qualified ARS estimator can advise you on your best course of action.
Another important thing to take into consideration is how much value you will add to your home. ARS roof restoration and roof replacements are very aesthetic and look great for years to come – guaranteed. Approximately one third of what you can see of your home from the street is roof, so installing a new Colorbond roof or doing the next best thing and completely restoring it can make a big difference and add a lot of value to your home.
Don’t wait until you have water damage in your home to let you know you need a new roof!
