My roof took some damage in a recent storm, and I want to get it repaired before it gets any worse. I am not sure what the extend of the damage is really, but I know that a branch or a tree limb, or something, hit my roof and knocked off some shingles. So I am gonig to have to hire a contractor for roof repair in Manhattan NY and hopefully I can get this work started within the next day or so. I do not think it will be more than a one day job, but I guess it could take longer if they find more damage to the roof than I am anticipating. I sure hope that won’t be the case, but I guess you never know.
The shingles on the roof are kind of old, but I don’t think that they really need to all be replaced at this time. I think that they were put on the roof about 15 years ago, but I’d have to look through some records to figure that out for sure. I know that shingles typically have a life of 20 to 30 years and so it would be nice if I could just pay for some minor repairs now and then wait another 5 years or so before actually having all of the shingles replaced. That way I won’t have to pay nearly as much money now, and I will be saving money in the long run as well by getting more life out the shingles. Of course, I will probably rely on whatever the contractor has to say about the shingles. So if they strongly recommend that I go ahead and have them replaced right now, then that is probably what I am going to have to do then.
