Throughout the year, the roof on your home in McLean deflects precipitation, extremes in temperatures, high winds, airborne objects, overflowing gutters and UV rays. In order to keep your roof repairs to a minimum and the interior environment of your home pleasant for living you need to consider all of the things that reduce the integrity of your roof. Your roof is considered your home’s most important asset. Your roofing system not only keeps your family and furnishings dry, but it also increases your overall energy efficiency. A well ventilated and dry roof can prevent the growth of mold and other organisms, prevent ice dams and condensation. A good roof adds to the structural integrity of your house and gives it more curb appeal.
Depending on the age and materials used during the installation of your roof, repairs can be made that will actually extend the life of your roof. If your roofing contractor determines the damage to your roof affects more than a third of the surface area, you may need a new one.
Roofing materials go through a natural aging process that makes your roofing system less waterproof over time. Hairline cracks develop in the shingles and roof caulk, allowing rain to reach the roof deck. Roofing compounds around chimneys, vents, pipes and skylights shrinks and splits. UV rays from the sun break down the composite materials of roof shingles and caulk so it becomes brittle and cracks. Any point on your roof where water can enter, even in very small amounts instigates a process of deterioration. By the time you can see the signs of water damage inside your home; you have a major problem on your hands.
Gutter replacement or repair may need to be considered if there are standing pools of water anywhere on the ground near your house. Your gutters might be blocked or they may be installed at an incorrect angle. Whatever the reason, when they fail to pull the cascading rains away from your house, a leaky roof or basement soon follows. Once water contacts the internal structure of your home, it starts a chain reaction of rot and mold.
Water damage repair costs can get quite high if a situation like this is allowed to continue. When soffit and fascia rot, volumes of water can enter the exterior wall cavity. Dampness inside the walls with just the right amount of warmth encourages black mold, and that is highly toxic, even deadly to the people living inside.
Water damage from a leak can show up far away from the original source. Water follows the path of least resistance. It can enter your roof, travel along a seam and down an interior wall before it finds an exit. You can use a flashlight to scout around your attic, but 9 times out of 10 you’ll be surprised at where it really starts. There are a few things to closely inspect when you are searching for that “needle in a haystack.” Pay attention to damp spots in the ceilings or walls. Look for any sagging along the roofline or missing shingles. Check your attic for outside sunlight showing through the roof.
In most cases, a great deal of water damage has already been done by the time you notice water stains inside the house. That’s why it’s so important to have your roof inspected on a regular basis. On a day when we get hit with one of our famous McLean storms accompanied by driving winds, the damage escalates out of control. A few simple roof repairs done right away will cut your maintenance costs and extend the life of your roof.
