Canadians are no strangers to bad weather. While hail storms may not be a surprise to us, it doesn’t mean we get used to the damage they cause to our roofs.

Roof replacements can be pricey. However, if just a small portion of your roof shows signs of ageing or damage, perhaps a roof repair would be better suited to you.

Let’s take a look at when roof repairs are needed and how much a residential roof repair might cost.

Understanding The Cost of Residential Roof Repairs

When To Repair Your Roof

Roof repairs are often a desirable option, as they are more affordable than roof replacements yet still elevate the appearance of your home. 

Situations in which you may consider roof repairs include:

  • Missing shingles
  • Damaged flashing
  • Nail pops
  • Curling or cracked shingles 

It’s important to be critical of your roof when deciding between roof repairs and replacement. If these concerns only appear in select areas of your roof, then choosing to repair it makes the most sense.

Benefits of Repair

Repairing your roof is an aspect of its regular maintenance. While perhaps not the most exciting household chore to manage, repairing your roof comes with many benefits.

Cost of Repair

The cost of your repair will depend on several factors. 

The materials you have chosen for your roof will be one of the largest components in determining cost. Asphalt shingles are less expensive than metal or cedar shake shingles to install, so naturally, they will be less expensive to repair.

The size of the area impacted will also affect the price. Naturally, if you are needing to fix more of your roof, it will cost more.

In general, a roof repair can cost anywhere from $500 to $1500.

When considering residential roof repair, it is recommended you speak with a professional as they can provide you with a more exact quote.
