Home ownership is expensive. The initial purchase of a home usually entails a mortgage from the bank that will last 15 to 30 years, but that large investment is only the beginning. Frequent or significant repairs are a major expense, and small problems that are left ignored to often times become large and expensive problems. Such is the case with the roof of a house. There are a large variety of things that can go wrong with a roof, but there are several problem areas that consistently seem to deteriorate or malfunction.
Below is a list of possible problems that will lead to an emergency roof repair in Springfield if not attended to.
1. If a roof leaks, no matter the type or composition, it needs attention.
2. If the seams are not properly cured on low sloping roofs, uplift can be a huge problem that allows in moisture.
3. Often times the main factor in a problem is poor workmanship. If you suspect this to be the case, get it checked out.
4. Consistent maintenance can lengthen the life of your roof, while a lack of it can cause major problems.
5. Pooling water causes damage. Roofs are designed to get rid of water as fast as possible to reduce exposure.
6. Punctures, either by the elements or by walking on the roof create weak points that can allow the weather in.
If you see, or suspect, any of these problems, call us and we can examine the roof with our trained eyes and advise you on the best course of action. When left uncared for, a damaged or faulty roof can give way to further damage not only on the outside, but on the inside of your home. A properly installed, well maintained roof will last for years, allowing you and your home to be safe, comfortable, and worry free.
Springfield Housing Market
Springfield, Virginia, has access to some of the finest roofers in the country. Because of this, the quality of roofs and, consequently, the quality of many of the homes in the area is seeing a turnaround from the housing market trends of recent years. Over the last year, the number of homes sold decreased by 15.3 percent, which could mean that either it is still difficult to sell or people are simply pleased with their current circumstances and are holding on to their real estate. Conversely, the average value per square foot is up 8.9 percent and the average selling price increased 4.1 percent over the same period. So, while fewer homes are being sold, those that are sold have been valued at higher rates. This implies that those living in Springfield wish to stay, and those moving there know how choice the city really is.
