The rains have stopped and the trees are all green. The sun shines bright and in some homes, the roof has once again begun to leak, just like last year. It is time to take a considered decision. Whether or not to go in for a roof replacement? It's a tough decision, both from the time as well from the budgetary point of view. You have contacted your roofer at Gotham Builders of New York and he comes over for another round of inspection. His conclusion is still the same. He suggests that it is imperative for you to go in for a roof replacement and repair is not an option now as the small leaks which existed last year have become larges patches on the wall, and they might soon lead to structural damage to the house. You decide to go in for a second opinion. You try and contact another roofer and he also makes the same suggestion.

Depending upon the initial roofing for the house, the maintenance during the life of the roof and the external weather conditions, the roof requires repairs as well as replacement. There are certain tell tale signs which indicate that a roof requires replacement.
