It’s definitely a bonus owning a home near the nation’s capital, but one of the best things about living in Centreville is the high number of sunny days. But this does not mean we can neglect certain aspects of maintaining our homes, including roof repair. It’s true we don’t have to worry about monsoon rains or several feet of snow destroying the roof, but things go wrong as part of the natural aging process.
Consider the impact your roof takes to protect the rest of your home from the elements. It must resist rain, snow, hail, heat, cold, wind and UV rays. Your roof works hard to maintain a stable environment inside your home, so you can go about the business of living in comfort.
Any weather, even a little bit of it, will degrade your roof over time. The adhesives used in roofing materials break down and shrink under the influence of the sun. Any seam or penetration through the roof to allow vents, pipes, a chimney or skylights becomes vulnerable. We have our share of storms and wind in Centreville. Ignoring the condition of your roof increases the likelihood of the next storm doing significant damage to your home.
Imagine this scenario...You find out there is a tiny, almost microscopic leak in your roof. Only a couple of drops come through in a rainstorm and you feel that there is no need to be concerned. Fast forward a few weeks and several more rainy days. That leak has allowed water to contact the interior structure of the roof, so that now you have some wood rot occurring. The drip is now a trickle each time it rains. It soaks into the insulation inside the attic and the walls. Black mold begins to grow. A few more weeks go by and you notice mold around the bottom of your baseboards. You see a damp spot in the ceiling. At this point, massive damage had already been done. You are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
A few weeks ago you thought the problem was insignificant. Now when you ask, “How much is this going to cost me?” you experience a moment of shock when you get the answer. The moral of this story: Never wait to fix a problem in your roof!
Our roof repair contractors offer free roofing inspections for a reason. We are home owners too, and we understand the cost to maintain a home. It’s important to us that we catch a small problem right in the beginning and take care of it before it grows into a major water damage restoration project or causes you energy bills to skyrocket.
So now it’s time to make a decision about your roof. Do you want to wait for the problem to get worse, or do you want to repair it now? If you had a leaky faucet that wouldn’t go away, would you just wait for it to fix itself? If your car’s brakes only worked half the time, would you hope the problem disappeared by ignoring it? No, you wouldn’t, and you shouldn’t do the same when dealing with your roof. Your roof protects your home from the wear and tear of the environment. Once it has been compromised, things will only get worse.
Centreville is a great place to live and own a home, but now you know that even the nice weather will slowly wear away at your roof. An annual inspection by our experienced roof repair contractors is part of a good home maintenance plan.
