You know you have to fix your shed roof when you see shingles blowing around your yard or you notice water leaking inside and ruining your tools and other valuable items.
You know it’s not smart to climb onto your home’s roof, but your shed is closer to the ground — what’s the harm? Can you handle this one repair yourself, or should you call a specialist to help?
What’s Wrong with the Roof?
First, remember this: A shed that’s losing its shingles or has a leaky roof probably isn’t stable. When moisture has the chance to spread, it leads to decay and mold, two factors that affect a shed’s structural integrity. The damage may be far beyond what you can see just from looking at your shed.
Pros and Cons of DIY Work
As a homeowner, you’re used to troubleshooting on your own. It saves money when you can manage small repairs yourself. Still, handling repairs has its drawbacks, including the possibility of doing further damage to your property or hurting yourself in the process.
What Could a New Shed Do for You?
Your shed has provided you with many years of dependable service, storing your high school yearbooks and holiday decorations without issue. But now that it’s time to fix your shed roof, you may want to consider another option.
Your shed isn’t getting any younger. If you hire a dependable contractor to make repairs, you can trust your roof will hold up for some time, but in some cases, it’s simply not worth it. Your new roof may outlast the structure it’s protecting.
If you invest in a new shed now, you can put those repair costs toward the price of a new shed. You’ll also enjoy many additional benefits as well, such as extra space if you opt for a larger design, maintenance-free storage for years to come and an attractive new building to enhance your property’s curb appeal.
