The short answer is, “Yes, you should.”
Teardowns are a fact of life
While teardowns are a fact of life in Vancouver, homeowners endanger their possessions and even their own safety by leaving their roofs unrepaired or by getting cheap second-rate repairs done.
Sure, homeowners know that if they have an older single-family home that that home will be demolished and replaced when they eventually sell it. The trend has been going on for years and hasn’t stopped. UBC found that between 1984 and 2014 30.4% of all single-family residences in Vancouver went this route.
So, if this is the case, why invest a lot of money in the house if it just going to be torn down in the future?
Needs to be replaced
Well, let’s look at it this way. You will eventually be selling or trading in your car, too. Why should you replace the brakes when they wear out? Proper brake replacement is a no-brainer. No one ever decides to drive on worn-out brakes or get second-hand brake pads.
It is really the same situation as your home and roof.
