The roof is leaking, does the roof need completely replacing?

It is a common misconception that if there is a leak in the roof, the whole roof will need to be replaced immediatley. This is generally only the case when the roof is old or irreparable if the damage is too widespread. A leak can be repaired without a whole new roof but as every roof is unique, one solution does not fit all.
