Roof Repairs vs. Roof Replacement – Making the Right Choice
We understand that a roof replacement is a large investment. Even if you have been getting by just making repairs, roof repairs are not a solid solution compared to a roof replacement.
Every time you call in for roof repair, that’s money you know you’ll need to spend again later, as roof repairs only last so long against a total replacement.
If your roof is under ten years old, and you are finding you are spending a lot of time worrying about roofing repairs, it may be you received an improper roof installation the first time. Although you may feel like your roof is young, if it’s costing you money in repairs now, a new roof replacement may be needed to correct any issues that occurred during a bad installation.
If your roof is closer to twenty years old, it’s probably time to consider a roof replacement. There is only so long you can put off a roof replacement with an aged roof, and the longer you wait, the worse it can get.
Don’t wait until harsh weather forces you into a tight spot. Consider your options and talk to us about what a roof replacement can do for your home.

Long-Lasting Durability: Asphalt shingle roofing is a very durable roofing component, especially at its affordable price point. With minimal maintenance, scheduled roughly 1 to 2 times a year, you can expect to get the entire 20-25 year lifespan out of your roof. Asphalt shingles are durable and long-lasting against the weather, including the intense sun, rain, snow, and fallen debris. Properly installed, they also hold up to strong winds and unpredictable hail.
Quality Protection: Get the best quality protection from asphalt shingle roofing. They hold up well against unexpected roofing damage, like against debris or fallen trees, providing a layer of protection for your home. Asphalt shingle roofs are also fire-resistant, helping to stall the spread of fire and the extent of the damage. You can also expect properly installed and maintained asphalt shingle roofs to resist mold and algae growth, providing better home protection in addition to aesthetics.
Added Home Value: A new roof will almost always increase the value of your home. The benefits of a new asphalt shingle roof include its clean appearance and quality protection. Even a basic, flat black or brown asphalt shingle roof can add substantial home value for minimal time or monetary investment.
Affordable: Asphalt shingle roofs are one of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia’s most affordable roofing options. The materials are easy to produce and have low manufacturing costs. The installation is not as specialized as other materials, reducing installation costs and time.

My roof leaks. Do I need to have it replaced completely?
It is best to have your entire roof replaced if you have a leak.
A leak in the roof can be a sign your roof has reached its age limit or the shingles have been extremely damaged or worn down and are not protecting your home. If you have one roof leak, you will probably develop more.
Can I install a new roof over top of my old shingle roof?
Yes, a new roof can be installed over your old shingle roof, however, there are pros and cons to this option.
Only some shingle roofs can have a new roof installed over top, and that is best determined by an inspection from our team. Your roofing options are limited when installing a new roof over an old one, and you run the risk of leaving old damage undiscovered by not removing the old roof.
What new roofing options do I have?
There are a lot of options if you're looking for a new roof!
Some of the roofing options Politz Enterprises provides for residential homes include asphalt shingles, cedar planks, copper, and slate materials. Based on your slope, location, and other factors, we can recommend the best roofing option for you, including energy-efficient options.
