Born Again is Mississippi’s Answer to Residential Roofing
There are many reasons why it might be time to consider roof repair, installation, and/or maintenance. Despite being a quintessential part of your home’s infrastructure, it’s easy to forget about the roof unless it starts to display undeniable problems. Given the service roofs provide, they’re usually built to endure. Even so, the amount of poorly installed roofs we’ve encountered is proof that the job is not always done adequately. As a result, you may find a roof that’s younger will start to have premature issues. A poorly installed roof can come back to haunt you, and it might be a relatively costly haunting at worst.
To combat the aforementioned, our team at Born Again has constructed a comprehensive list of services designed to keep your roof going in every state of its life. Whether you’re interested in regular maintenance and servicing or have reached the end of your rope with your current roof, we have options.
Maintenance Plans That Focus On Saving You Money
A lot of people have the misconception that regular or routine maintenance on your roof is unnecessary. However, when you consider the fact that your roof is constantly shouldering the effects of weather, your roof is typically in worse condition than you realize. Especially roofs that have been poorly installed. In actuality, the primary cause of roof problems stems from a poorly maintained structure. Just because you can go years without noticing the effects of poor roof health, doesn’t mean they’re not actively accumulating.
As the most vulnerable part of your home, we offer plans to keep it in pristine function. If you’re still weighing the pros and cons, just know that a regularly maintained roof can potentially expand its life by 15 to 30 years. Ultimately, routine roof maintenance can mean the difference between a massive repair and a manageable one.
Not to mention, your roof is a key component in your home’s curb appeal. If you haven’t heard the term curb appeal, it basically alludes to your home’s perceived value based on its outside appearance. Ergo, a disheveled home with obvious issues in aesthetics and function has low curb appeal. If at any point you envision that you will sell your home, whether that will occur in the near or far future, taking care of your roof today can mean massive recoupment down the road. Roofs are huge for curb appeal, and if your roof has obvious problems that are discovered during the inspection process, it will likely make the checklist of things your buyer requires you to take care of in contingency with their buyer’s agreement.
It might all seem a bit “cart before the horse” but in actuality, when you take care of your home’s maintenance, you are by default taking care of your immediate living environment and keeping yourself safe, all the while setting yourself up for long term success should you ever choose to leave the home.
Born Again has practical and affordable solutions providing you with a litany of options at your behest. Based on several criteria, we’ll help formulate a plan that makes sense for your home and roof’s general welfare. We are happy to provide maintenance on roofs that we installed, and those that we did not.
Repair vs Replace- How Do You Tell?
Should I repair or replace my roof? It’s a question that’s not always easy to answer. In some cases, it will be abundantly clear. I.E- the roof has accrued major damage due to a storm, or some other kind of emergency issue. However, it’s not as easy to tell when you’re not dealing with an overwhelming display of damage. Bear in mind, that Born Again will be able to quickly diagnose issues and recommend solutions, but here are some rules of thumb we typically follow when we’re deciding what course of action to follow.
Roof Age- A brand-new roof or a roof that’s still in its infancy is an obvious hard sell. Usually, if a roof needs to be repaired in its early years, it’s because a major oversight has occurred in its installation. Some people might recommend having the company that installed the roof come in and fix it. However, if your prior contractor missed the mark so egregiously, it might be better to just scrap their service entirely. Here are some other factors to consider, a temporary asphalt roof can last roughly 20 to 25 years. A lot of other building materials fall somewhere on that scale as well, like for instance a roof installed over a preexisting shingle should be replaced every 20 or so years. When all is said and done, even the most pristine and up-to-date technology will still require a replacement. There’s no way to outsmart a replacement by putting band-aid over band-aid.
Replacement Costs- If you find yourself reaching out to a roof repair specialist more often lately, there’s a good chance the repairs aren’t sticking. As mentioned, if you believe you can outsmart a replacement by undergoing repair after repair, you are mistaken. Not to mention, you’ll soon come to realize all the money you’re sinking into repairs could have been better siphoned into a full-on replacement. The good news is our team of experienced experts can quickly denote whether a replacement is advantageous for you. We’ll take all the guesswork out of what you should do and offer you our professional opinion.
Damage/Condition: Point blank, if your home has experienced major trauma or irreversible damage due to a major storm or water leakage, the most logical (and safe) option will be to replace. The longer you try to prolong the inevitable, the worse for wear your home will be, and the problems you avoid now will only become worse. From a monetary perspective, a repair will obviously be cheaper if you only intend to undergo one repair. However, when dealing with extreme damage, rarely ever is one repair going to salvage your roof. In the end, you’re apt to spend more money on constant repairs, than you would simply replacing the roof entirely.
Whether you’re seeking repairs, replacements, or regular maintenance, Born Again will help you find the best solution on all fronts.
