Hey, it’s Preston with Streamline Roofing. And in this video, I’m going to talk to you about the average cost of roof repairs.
So, here’s the problem with roof repairs. They’re not always easy, and sometimes they can be tricky. And this is one of the reasons why some roofing contractors, roofing companies really don’t want to have any part in roof repairs at all, and they only prefer to stick to full replacements. But we believe that there is a time and a place where it makes a lot of sense for a homeowner to have the roof repaired as compared to replace.
We’ve divided roof repairs into three cost brackets and that’s what we’re going to talk about now. The first pricing bracket for roof repairs is what we would consider to be a minor repair. The cost for these types of repairs are going to be somewhere between three and $500. And the things that we repair within this bracket would be a few missing shingles, a pipe, jack, that needs to be replaced, maybe a roof that needs to be replaced.
You could have some flashing that needs repairs, or some touch up caulking. Next up, we have moderate roof bears. And in this price bracket, you’re looking at somewhere between $500 to $1,500 dollars. We’d be doing things like replacing large sections of shingles, replacing skylights, replacing damaged or rotted decking or roof flashing your entire chimney. Next, we have major roof repairs.
These repairs are $1,500 dollars and up. In these situations, like you have a large branch that falls and hits your roof. It damages the Joyce, the decking, the shingles, and all of this needs to be repaired. Another example would be you have a leaky chimney, and we determine it’s the siding. So, we replace all of the siding around the chimney or the chimney cap itself.
And probably another good example would be ventilation. Let’s say that your home is completely under ventilated in the attic, but you’re not replacing the entire roof. But you do want to install the proper amount of ventilation to get that heat out. Those would all be examples of what a major roof repair looks like. So, as we said in the beginning of the video, we do believe there is a time and a place for roof repairs.
There are circumstances where it makes a lot of sense for a homeowner to have a repair done as compared to a full roof replacement. However, it is worth mentioning that this is not always the case when the cost of the repair exceeds the value that you’re going to get in return. You should probably really consider a full replacement as compared to the repair.
It’s hard to put a number on this, and this is something that you’ll have to individually consider. Consider as a family, and just think about, you know, what makes sense for you. But I would say that if you’re approaching the 25% range of the cost of the repair versus the replacement cost, if the cost of repair is going to be 25% of what it would cost to replace it, you should probably just lean towards replacing it because there are so many long-term benefits you’re going to get if you make that replacement instead.

When your home has a roof leak or roof damage, the big question is how much it will cost to repair your roof. Roof repair costs depend on many factors, but to help homeowners like you we have divided our roof repairs into three price brackets and given examples of roof repairs in each. We also discuss when you should consider a complete roof replacement vs a roof repair.
We hope this helps Weatherford, Aledo, Willow Park and surrounding Parker County Homeowners have a better understanding of the current prices of different types of roof repairs.

A few missing shingles, pipe jack boot replacement, roof vent replacement
Large area of shingles, skylight replacement, rotted decking replacement, chimney reflashing
Tree falls on house and damaged decking, joist or large area of shingles. Chimney needs new siding or deteriorated mortar repaired.
When should you just replace the entire roof? Consider complete roof replacement when the cost of repair is over 25% of the full replacement cost. If repair is $5,000 and a full roof replacement is $20,000 then consider full roof replacement.
