Is It Possible to Get a Partial Roof Replacement?

April 16, 2021

There are many reasons why you may need to replace your roof. Maybe there is damage from a storm, or maybe it’s just from regular wear and tear. But if only part of your roof is worn, can you get away with a partial roof replacement? Or must you replace the entire thing? Read on to learn more.

When You Might Need a Partial Roof Replacement

Partial roof replacements can mean a few different things and usually refer to fixing just a small portion of your roof. Sometimes, it’s as simple as replacing a few missing or damaged shingles. If the underlayment of your roof is still intact, then there is nothing else to fix. This is when it’s useful to have any leftover shingles saved from your last roof replacement; otherwise, your roofer may have to color match your shingles.

Other times, a partial roof replacement requires patching if the underlayment or decking of your roof is damaged. This could be from a fallen tree, a hailstorm, or wood rot. Sometimes, you may not even be able to see the damage below your shingles, which is why we recommend getting an annual roof inspection. If there’s damage below your shingles, your roofer will check for any water damage in your attic. Then, they will let you know the best course of action to patch your roof.

Partial Replacement vs Re-Roofing

When there is damage on more than half your roof, you are probably better off getting a full roof replacement. Partially replacing half a roof can risk the integrity of your roof and there are no promises it will increase your roof’s lifespan. Even if the initial cost of a partial roof replacement is less than a full replacement, you will ultimately be paying less in the long-term by opting for a complete re-roofing.
