The town of Occoquan, VA is a suburb of Washington, D.C. located on the Occoquan River. It is the home of several historical places and is a lively artistic community that attracts tourists. The streets are a mixture of historical buildings and well-kept modern houses that fit with the upbeat spirit of the community. Home owners make a concerted effort to maintain their homes, but this can be a challenge due to Northern Virginia’s extremes in weather. Some of the greatest issues are with keeping a roof in good repair.
One of the questions roofing companies in Occoquan frequently answer is, “How often should I have my roof inspected?” We recommend you have a free inspection at least once a year, and more often if the season has been especially stormy. Waiting to find out if you need roof repairs allows water damage to affect more than just the area where the roof is leaking. Long term damage will create so many problems you’ll have no choice but to opt for total roof replacement.
When you notice a damp spot showing up on a ceiling inside your house, the cause of the leak must be determined before you can decide what to do about it. The inside and the outside of the house must both be assessed. There are some obvious reasons, such as an antenna that has fallen over or a tree branch that has landed on the roof and punctured the shingles. Damage from unusual circumstances such as these can be fixed with a simple roof repair.
There are other roof problems that are far more subtle and can depend on they type of roof on your house. For example, the sheathing material or plywood used to build the roof deck is not impermeable to water. Once it has been soaked a few times it will swell and split, forcing the shingles up. You may be able to see this if you climb around on your roof, but more than likely it will not be distinguishable to the inexperienced home owner. We are trained to find these problems and take care of them with the appropriate roof repair solutions before too much water makes a mess of your home.
