The Causes Behind the Problems
There are many things out there that could potentially damage your rooftop, but we have found there are a few typical causes of roof issues. Age – No matter how high quality the material is at installation or how well the homeowner cares for it, every residential roofing system will eventually reach the end of its lifespan. Exposed to the elements all day, every day, it will deteriorate. Asphalt roofing can become discolored, brittle, crack and leak. Metal roofs of the past can become dented and rusted.
Poor installation – Well-meaning homeowners and inexperienced residential roofing contractors can make drastic mistakes that will shorten the life of your rooftop. During installation, it is pertinent that the manufacturer’s guidelines be followed. Failure to do so can result in a roof that will leak and won’t be covered by a warranty.
Poor maintenance – Just like any other valued investment, residential roofing needs to be cared for and regularly tended to. Low-hanging tree branches can scrape against the surface of asphalt roofing and cause degranulation. Piles of leaves and other debris can hold water against the surface and weaken the spots, making them vulnerable to leaks, mold and insect infestation. Having a professional roofing service handle regular maintenance will help to prevent minor issues from becoming expensive repairs or early replacements.
Storm damage – From hurricanes to ice and snow, just about any type of weather can cause minor to devastating damage on your residential roofing. And there is no material that is impervious.
Repair, Replace or Installation
When you have an obvious residential roofing issue or suspect you may have one, contact us immediately. We can come to your home and provide you with a free inspection. We quickly stop any existing leaks to prevent further damage to the interior of your home. We then check out the rest of the system including the wood decking, underlayment, flashing and top materials. Based on the extent of damages, we may recommend repairs or replacement.
New Residential Roofing Installation
When you’re building a new home, trust a residential roofing company that spends its time entirely on roofs. No one has expertise in this area like a full-time professional roofer. And very few home builders have been factory-trained to install a system according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Don’t risk voiding the warranty or skimping on quality.
We are trusted professionals in the residential roofing industry. We are fully licensed, insured and offer 10-year leak and labor warranties on roof replacement and new roof installations. We stand behind our work and offer free inspections to help you make a confident decision on this valued investment. Contact us today!
We can install, repair and replace residential roofing in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and all of Tidewater.
