Before Hiring a Virginia roofing contractor, make sure they are Licensed and Insured
Virginia roofing contractors have special roof repair considerations to make because of the high number of historical buildings in this state. Houses dating from the 17th Century are at a higher risk of forming leaks and are more vulnerable to damaging storms. This is why homeowners in this state should prioritize scheduling a roof inspection at least twice a year. Not only do they have their families and neighborhood to consider, but the historical preservation of the nations formation as well.
Age and humid climate with a healthy amount of rain are strong partners in causing mold and mildew to form on the roof inside the attic. Older houses may have inadequate attic ventilation a leading cause to the formation of moisture. During summer, the hot humid air causes the attic to heat up and with cooling off at night time, all that condensation has its own little rain shower. During winter, the cold temperatures outside keep the furnace running for months. All this hot air heads straight up to the attic. If it can’t get out, it immediately cools and you have the same effect as summer.
During winter, homeowners in Virginia know they need to keep the snow off their roofs or run the risk of ice dams. Ice dams form because all that snow on your roof starts melting during the day and then freezes at night, as it is dripping off the edge of the roof. Repeat this for a few days and you will see a ridge of ice has formed, acting like a dam that prevents the melted snow from running off the roof. All that water can do now is back up. Any little nail hole or crack in flashing now becomes an escape hatch for all that water.
These leaks grow, allowing the water to come in to your attic, down your walls, into your ceilings and basement. Now you have an increased risk of mold and mildew as well as a mess from damaged dry wall and electrical systems. All these roof repair issues and more can be easily taken care of by your local Virginia roofing contractors.
