Located near Washington, D.C., Springfield is one of the most convenient cities to own a home. With 30,484 people living in the community, it is considered to be one of the most affluent regions in the country, and it is the most populous section of the Washington Metro Area. Founded in the early 19th century, today is has grown by leaps and bounds and new houses are popping up all the time.
All those houses have roofs, and all those roofs face 43.6 inches of rain a year, seven inches of snow, thunderstorms, hail, 197 days of sunlight and high winds. Add that all up and you have a recipe that calls for some TLC in the form of roof repair.
Death by 1000 Cuts
When a roof expires, it is not typically through sudden destruction, unless a tree falls on it. No, with a roof it is death by 1,000 cuts. You see, over the years, rain, wind, snow, hail and the elements in general break down the roof. They tear away pieces of shingles, they create cracks, which expand to be holes, which let in water, which rots the support structure of the roof. Most of the tiny cuts on a roof are caused through exposure to the ultraviolet rays. These rays cause the oils in the roofing materials to evaporate, rending them brittle and shrunken. When your shingles and roofing compounds curl up and die, the result is thousands of entry points for gallons of rainwater. This is when roof repair is needed.
Our expert Springfield roof repair contractors know what makes a roof stand the test of time, and they know how to take your failing roof and make it new again. You may think you need a whole new replacement roof, but you can actually just get by with fixing it as long as the damage is not too severe. The great news is that we can add several more years of productivity to your roof, just by stopping small leaks before they allow extensive water damage to occur.
Of course, to extend the life of your roof, you need to know whether or not your roof is damaged. There are visible signs, such as wet patches in your ceiling that let you know you have a leak. However, by the time you can see this, there has already been a lot of water damage to the interior recesses of the house. What you can see is only the tip of the iceberg. Inside the ceilings and walls, you likely have quite a bit of rot, corrosion and possibly mildew and mold. Black mold can be deadly.
Naturally, there is a cost to all of this and the more work that is required, the higher the cost is going to be. That being said, it is a small price to pay to make sure that your home is protected from the elements. Your home battles the elements every day, and the roof takes most of the brunt of that. It can be a losing battle at times, but it fights day in, day out, for you. The cost to do a major water damage restoration is far greater than regularly maintaining your roof. Your home in Springfield may be the biggest investment you make in your lifetime. Our goal is to protect your investment, keep your energy bills in check and guarantee a safe living environment for you and your family. A good roof also boosts the curb appeal of your home and increases the market value.
