You’re having some leaking problems with your roof. Now, you’re wondering if you should shingle over the leaks and save a few bucks, or tear off your existing roof and replace with an entirely new one. Although a minor repair here and there can save you money now, it can end up costing you more in the long run.
Over time, the plywood under your shingles can turn weak and brittle, causing further damage to your home’s structure. If this is the condition of your roof now, then a simple shingling job will be like placing Band-Aid over a deep-seated wound—it’s not going to solve the problem.
