You could spend a million dollars building a roof with space age materials, but with the kind of weather we get in Oakton, eventually you will need roof repairs. There is no getting around it! You’ll be happy to know that less money and some TLC will actually save your home maintenance budget. A simple roof leak is easy to fix early on, but if you ignore it, that simple roof leak leads to massive repairs and high expense. Making the decision to keep your roof in good shape is wise for many reasons.
 

How Leaks Start

 
You would be surprised at the ways a roof leak can get started. The moment your new roof is built, it goes into battle with the elements. Just like any other protective material eventually it wears out. Extremes in temperature, wind, hail, snow, ice and sunlight beat up on your roof incessantly. It’s like being under the influence of an electric sander 24/7. Those are normal conditions for a roof – it must also deal with individual circumstances that threaten the rest of your home. 
 
We are famous for the wind driven rains that throw horizontal sheets of water at your house.  A roof can be in perfect condition but in this type of storm, unprotected areas allow water to enter. Loose shingles don’t stand a chance. With a storm like this you can end up with several gallons of water pouring through your exterior wall cavities and attic. There is really no telling how or where it will flood your house. 
 
Water from a leak can show up far away from the original source, since it follows the path of least resistance. It doesn't necessarily drip straight down from the point of entry. It can travel along roof panels or lumber in the attic before dripping onto your insulation and eventually soaking the drywall in your ceiling. Wet insulation is frequently the breeding ground for toxic black mold. It also looses R-value and you experience this as higher energy bills.
 
Frequently we are asked, “Why is my chimney leaking inside?” This is what happens: If your chimney is brick, the mortar between the bricks can develop hairline cracks. Combine this with old roofing compound around the base of the chimney where it comes through the roof. The sealant shrinks and pulls away from the flashings that cover the seam. Water seeps into the seam and through the cracks in the mortar. Now you have puddles of water accumulating in your fireplace. 
 

Waterproofing

 
The primary function of your roof is to provide a waterproof barrier over your house, much like an umbrella. Unfortunately, an inexperienced roofer can make mistakes that cause your roof to fail. For example, shingles nailed too high on the tabs are more apt to snap off in the wind. Incorrectly placed flashings cannot cover the seams they are meant to protect. Inadequate roof vents make your attic too hot in the winter and you have the potential for ice dams and leaks during subzero weather. To give the best service, your roof must be a continuous waterproof surface for the entire expanse it covers.
 

Roof Repairs

 
Typically, home owners in Oakton wait until they see wet ceilings or walls inside the house before calling a roofing company. By the time a leak becomes evident, you already have extensive water damage, rot, mildew and mold to the inner structural regions. The best prevention is to have your roof inspected at least once a year. In the long run you will save money and add several more years to the productivity of your roof.

Steve responded immediately right after one snow storm and before the big blizzard. His crew was prompt, professional, and dedicated. The price was fair and the repairs were excellent. I would not hesitate in calling Steve and Roofer 911.

Just 2 weeks before Christmas on one rainy Friday night water is dripping from the ceiling oh you had to see the fright. Thatís right it was coming in next to my artificial Christmas tree which didnít require watering. I called Roofer911 that evening and we had Steven (a.k.a. Rescue Elf) out the next day and on the roof to inspect the problem. I received a written quote within the hour but needed to wait an additional day for the repair due to rain. A crew (a.k.a. Rescue Elfs) arrived at my home on Monday and completed all the work the same day. Now this is all and good but not the best part of our story. We had a small problem with the repair that needed to be corrected. I gave Steven a call and he dispatched his crew that same day to correct the problem. Knowing that a company like Roofer911 stands behind their work is the best part of using them for your roofing needs. I will not hesitate to call them again or refer them to my friends and neighbors. Thank you Roofer911 for making sure we had a dry Christmas. Jim Oakton, VA
