Roof repair is a necessity, not a luxury for home owners in Lorton. Why? Consider the rain pounding on your roof, melting snow backing up under the shingles, hail punching holes in it and the wind tearing it apart. Even the UV rays from the sun can slowly destroy your roof by drying out the compounds that keep it waterproof. Your home may be the biggest purchase you’ll ever make, and your roof is what protects it from the elements.
Roof Repair or Roof Replacement?
When you call your roofing contractor, one of the first questions you should ask is, “Should I fix my roof or should I get a new one?” Even if your roof is still only a few years old, roof repairs take care of the problems before they get worse. If the roofer comes to the conclusion that 1/3 of the shingles need to be replaced, it may be time to get a new roof.
Here’s another common question: “Do I first need approval by the HOA before my roofer performs any roof repair? The Home Owners Association in every community has a list of guidelines that must be followed. As a homeowner you should be aware of the rules and expectations. Find out what your restrictions may be for materials to be used for roof repairs or replacements. Homeowners are usually instructed to wait for HOA approval before beginning work. This is also the time that you may want to review any home owner’s insurance policies to find out what is covered. (FYI, we can help you with filling out the paperwork for insurance claims.)
If you don’t have an HOA that enforces your design, many types of roofing are available. All perform the same important function: protecting your house. Roofing can be basic, cost-effective, and simple, with subtle colors and patterns that add aesthetic value to your home. Or it can be a fanciful architectural statement, chosen for its ability to attract attention as well as fend off the elements.
Determining the source of a leak and getting it fixed can usually be done within a day. Of course it will take more time if the leak has been neglected for many months. It is much more involved to repair rotted structures, mildew and toxic black mold. It’s also far more expensive. Unless your home is undergoing a major roof renovation, there’s nothing you really need to do to prepare, other than move vehicles or objects near your home that could be hit by a falling shingle.
What’s most important is that you have the roof repairs completed as quickly as possible. Even hairline cracks in your roof allow enough water in to do some serious damage. By the time you notice a problem inside your home, it has already left a path of destruction in its wake. Keep in mind that no building materials are impervious to water. Insulation does not rot when it gets wet, but it loses R-value and your energy bills go up.
Your roof acts like an umbrella ovyour houseer , deflecting the weather, temperature changes, wind, UV rays and wind we experience in Lorton. Without a solid roof, your home is directly exposed to the elements. You can’t afford to let your roof get run down. Small roof repairs done before they get out of control saves money and can extend the life of your roof another 5 to 10 years. And if you ever decide to sell, a good roof increases the market value of your home.
