Roof Repair 101

It’s summer in the DC metro area and per usual, the oppressive heat has brought along violent thunderstorms and wild weather with it. The intense storms that hit Northern Virginia and DC several weeks ago have shown that excessive summer-time weather can wreak havoc on a home’s physical well-being as well as the potential for doing serious damage to your home’s roof. If you feel that your roof is at risk or think that you may be in need of roofing services, it is important to keep a look out for several warning signs before deciding on what type of roof repair your home may need.

For example, if a homeowner notices moisture marks, brown stains, or peeling paint on your home’s interior walls, these may be signs of roof damage caused by moisture and leakage. A small leak will only require a smaller roofing repair service; larger leaks however might be signs that your home is need of a full roof replacement. A second red flag to keep an eye out for is missing and damaged shingles. Roof damage can be caused by a variety of factors, from rain to falling trees and leaves resulting from high wind. Localized damage might only require a small roofing service, but if you notice widespread damage across the entirety of your roof it might be time to consider a roof replacement. Finally, the age of your roof is an important variable when considering the type of roofing service for your home. Be conscious of the lifespan of your roof given the type of material from which it is constructed. Different types of roofing and shingles come with various life spans.
