Repair or Reroof your Florida Roof

Repair your Roof

Of course money is a major factor for many homeowners when faced with this decision, but it shouldn’t be the only factor. If it is feasible to make repairs, which will cost less, then have the repairs made. Roof repairs can help to extend the life of your roof. At Kirkey Roofing, we never cut any corners, we repair any rotting wood in the area of the roof leak and replace it with new plywood. Termites, carpenter ants and other animals are attracted to rotting wood. After we replace the wood, we replace the shingles, and you will never even know we were there.


Sometimes it just makes sense to do a reroof on your home. If could be that the existing roof is more than 30 years old and would be just too costly to repair. Where repairing it would only be a temporary fix anyway, needing a replacement soon after. Perhaps your style choice has changed, and you’re looking for a whole new style to the house with a different type of material choice. Choosing to go with a reroof rather than a roof repair also adds value to your home. Nothing is more enticing to a potential home buyer than knowing they have a solid roof over their head. Of course if there is significant water damage or mold, then a reroof is necessary.
