When it comes time to repair your shingle roof in Maryland, you will have a lot of choices to make. One of the most important factors that will affect your choices is how much everything will cost. A roof requires a big investment, even for repairs, which is why knowing what influences the cost is important. Here are some of the main cost factors that you will need to consider.
Amount of Damage
The first and most important aspect of roof repairs is determining the amount of damage involved. Sometimes from the outside, it can look like your roof isn’t as badly damaged as it truly is. For example, you might see only a couple of moldy shingles, but that could mean that you have worse water damage under the surface. Make sure that you have a thorough roof inspection so that you know what will need to be repaired.
Extent of Repairs
Another one of the biggest factors that affect repair costs is the size of the repair. As you can imagine, there is a significant difference between replacing a small section of your roof versus a larger one. The amount of materials needed to repair your roof will also affect how much it will cost.
Lastly, the other elements on your roof could make it more difficult to repair and, therefore, more expensive. Skylights and chimneys provide added complications to be worked around. And if these things need to be repaired or replaced as well, then that will be an additional cost.
