Roof Replacement Annandale, VA- Northern Virginia Roofing
Roof Replacement Annandale, VA
Like everyone that lives in Northern Virginia, residents of Annandale are no strangers to inclement weather. With up to 18 inches of snow each winter, and four inches of rain each May, plus wind speeds that are higher than the national average, your roof takes a serious beating each year. And because your roof is what stands between the rest of your home and this inclement weather, it’s important that you keep your roof in good condition. While roof replacement is never something that people want to consider for their homes, it can be a viable option to help protect the rest of your home and your belongings.
What Does Roof Replacement Entail?
Roof replacement is the total tear off of your current shingles right down to the roof deck, and the installation of a new roof underlayment, diverter, flashing, and shingles. This is a lot more invasive than a simple roof repair, which may entail the replacement of individual shingles, flashing, or caulking.
Depending on the size of your roof, and its current condition, this process could take as little as one day, or as much as a week. Roof replacement is often the last resort for homeowners that may have been repairing minor issues, which have finally become too widespread to patch. So while this is often the more invasive and expensive answer to a leaking or problem roof, it’s often the more permanent solution, lasting for 20 or more years when properly maintained.
Repair vs. Replacement
Many people facing a roof replacement may wonder if a roof repair may be the right answer. And while a partial reroofing can often be the answer for extensive damage to just one section of a roof, there is a difference between replacement and repair.
Repair is often confined to one area, such as a section that may have a few broken or missing shingles, or that may have some shingles that are beginning to deteriorate. This is a good option when the majority of your roof is in good condition. Repair often consists of replacing just the compromised shingles or flashing and leaving the rest intact.
Roof replacement, however, is the best answer when the overall condition of the roof is problematic, or the roof is beginning to reach the end of its expected lifespan.
What Does Roof Replacement Cost
There are a lot of factors that can go into what you would finally pay for your roof replacement. The size of your roof, what shingles you choose, the slope or pitch of your roof, and the current condition of the roof can all go into the final cost. It is possible, however, to find some cost averages that can give you a good idea of what you could pay for a roof replacement.
The average cost in Northern Virginia and Annandale for a complete roof replacement is a little over $7,000 with the majority of homeowners spending between $5,900 and $7,900 for a new roof. Costs can also run as low as $3,000 and as high as $11,000, so it’s important to have your roof evaluated by a reputable roofing contractor to determine what your cost actually is.
