Every roof needs repair occasionally, but the repairs needed by well-maintained, solid and young roofs are obviously simpler than the repairs necessary to restore the strength and the integrity of old, weakened roofs. Roofing experts advise homeowners to call a professional for any roof repair, but most homeowners undertake simple fixes, such as gutter cleaning or shingle replacement.
