How to Know Whether to Repair, Patch, or Replace your Roof

Roof Repair Versus Roof Replacement | Sabal Construction and Roofing LLC

Understand whether to repair or replace your roof with Sabal Construction & Roofing LLC.

Roof Repair

Roof repair is required when an isolated area is affected. Broken shingles or a fallen branch are easy repairs.

Roof Replacement

If a large portion of roof shingles are missing, the gutters are continuously clogged, the roof is sagging or it is 20 years or older, it may be the perfect time for a roof replacement.

Roof Repair or Replacement Warning Signs


If integral backings begin curving or twisting, roof cracking can occur. If new ceiling or wall cracks are discovered, do not leave them for long. The longer a roof goes untended, the more likely a collapse.

Curling is caused by:


Gloeocapsa Magma, or blue-green algae, is responsible for the discoloration of roofs. These algae spores disperse through the air and colonize entire roofs, except where metal flashing is present.

Indoor Leaks

Water indoors is never healthy. If a leak is detected, determine the leak source, assess any further damage and call the professionals at Sabal Construction and Roofing LLC.

Missing Shingles occur for a variety of reasons:

Moss or Algae

Moss thrives in humid, moist settings. Roofs with moss are generally shaded by trees or other buildings. Remove roof moss by:


Roof rot is often caused by moisture, inadequate attic ventilation or roof water leaks. Excessive dampness allows gray fungus to infiltrate underlying fibers causing wood decay.

Sagging Roof

A sagging roof is the result of weakened, deficient roof joists or configuration issues within the buildup layers underneath visible roofing or too much weight on the prevailing structure.

Shingle Granules in Gutters

 Shingle granules in gutters, or simply “fall-off,” signify eroding roof materials. Due largely to environmental conditions, tiles with granular loss are more prone to cracking, splitting, and curling.

Visible Sunlight from the Roof

A roof with visible sunlight coming through is extremely damaged and should be addressed immediately.
