Oakton, VA Roof Repair Contractor

Oakton, VA Roof Repair Contractor

Like all towns in Northern Virginia, Oakton has certainly had its fair share of bad weather. With winds higher than the national average, rainy springs, and snowy winters, residents in Oakton need to pay close attention to their roofs and their need for roof repair. After all, your roof is the thing standing between you and all this precipitation and wind; make sure you maintain it properly to protect your home.

The Weather and Your Roof

While the temperature rarely rises above the mid 80s in the summer and dips below the mid 20s in the winter, residents of Oakton certainly deal with their fair share of rain and snow fall each year. It’s not uncommon to find at least 75 days of rain and 18 inches of snowfall each year. All this precipitation means that you need to ensure that your roof is in good condition to help protect the rest of your home from water damage.

Allowing all of that snow to sit on your roof unchecked all winter can cause problems such as sagging roof decks and deteriorating shingles that can cause leaks later on. Combine this with hailstones that can knock the granules of some shingles while cracking others, and the high winds that accompany them tearing shingles off the roofs and you’ll find the need to be vigilant about your roof maintenance and repair.

Signs That You Need Roof Repair

As part of your home maintenance, you should be checking your roof at least twice a year; once at the end of the long winter – preferably before the heavy rains in May – and once at the end of the summer. As you check over your roof, check for any of these signs that some roof repair may be due:

  • Signs of water in your attic, such as water stains, black mold, or rotting wood
  • Curling shingles
  • Broken or cracked shingles
  • Missing shingles
  • Missing caulk on your flashings
  • Gutters that are filled with granules knocked off the roof
  • Moss or algae growing on the roof

Ignoring these signs can lead to further problems down the road. Any missing or broken shingles could be letting water in through your roof. In addition to a leak suddenly soaking your walls, floors, rugs, and furnishings, a leaking roof can lead to other problems such as:

  • Mildew and black mold growth inside your home, leading to poor air quality
  • Rotting wood and a weakening house structure in your attic
  • Loose and rotting plaster and drywall

Not to mention the fact that many problems on your roof start out small, often before you even know they are there. While it is possible for the entire roof to fail at once, often it’s a small area that begins to have problems first, such as missing caulking around some flashing, or a section of shingles that are lifting. Ignoring the signs that you have some small problems with the roof only means that these problems can get worse over time. So what might be a small repair job now could turn into a total roof replacement down the road.
