8. Should I completely replace the roof if it leaks?
It is not always necessary to replace the whole roof if there is a leak. The leakage can sometimes be due to loose-fitted flashings or a damaged section of the roof. It may be possible to simply repair one section of the roof in order to stop the leak.
9. Can I do my roofing work myself?
