If you are considering a Sterling siding project this spring or summer, chances are you have wondered about the advantages of vinyl siding. It is a consistently popular choice for homeowners, and for good reason. Vinyl has great versatility and also provides an attractive polished look to a home’s exterior – no painting required!
When trying to determine if vinyl siding is right for your Northern Virginia home, consider some of these benefits:
- Vinyl siding is durable, with the ability to remain strong and intact even when subjected to hurricane-force winds of 110mph. Its composition is unfazed by heat, cold and moisture.
- Even when exposed to intense sunlight, vinyl siding resists discoloration and fading. And because the color extends through the material, you won’t need to worry about the occasional scrape or dent marring its surface.
- Maintenance of vinyl siding is relatively hassle-free, with no need for paint or scraping – ever. A simple wash a few times a year will remove dirt and reveal an attractive exterior that looks just like it did when it was first installed.
- Vinyl is the most affordable siding option. Because it is easy to work with, labor costs are low, and the material itself is less expensive than fiber cement or wood. These combined savings can be passed on to you.
If a home with a beautiful exterior catches your eye, you may likely discover it is wrapped in quality vinyl siding. This material may be an ideal option for your Northern Virginia siding project. Let the pros at Roofing & More help you weigh the options and find the best siding material, color and style to compliment your home.

A chimney is often one of the most neglected components of a home, which is why 99% of homeowners overlook the crown on their chimney when it comes to home maintenance. A chimney crown is the top element of a masonry chimney, designed to protect the chimney from water damage and keep your house dry. It is not something you think about because you can’t see it from the ground. When a chimney crown is cracked, it allows water to seep in. As that water freezes and expands, it literally “blows out” the brick and mortar from the inside out, resulting in extensive damage and expensive repairs.
There’s a simple way to prevent this from happening to you. If your existing chimney crown is deteriorated beyond repair, have it replaced with a new mortar cap crown, then have a “flex crown” applied after the mortar sets and cures. If the existing mortar cap crown is in good repair, have a flex crown installed over it. This innovative acrylic product flexes with the expansion and contraction of the mortar cap crown, eliminating cracks and water infiltration into your home. It’s a simple, inexpensive repair that can extend the life of your existing crown by several years and save you thousands of dollars in chimney replacement costs.
At Roofing & More, we recommend adding flex crowns to existing caps that are not yet cracked for the sole purpose of extending chimney life. Let us help you avoid extensive and expensive chimney replacement that will be needed when something as simple as a chimney crown is forgotten or overlooked! For your peace of mind, give our Herndon roofing experts a call today at (877) 398-4555. With more than two decades of experience, Roofing & More can offer solutions for every aspect of your home’s exterior.
When a significant snow accumulation occurs in Northern Virginia, we all become keenly aware of the condition of roads, parking lots, sidewalks and driveways, and whether we have adequate food, electricity, and so on. But few homeowners and businesses consider another crucial factor when the snow is falling: their roof and how it will be affected by the heavy weight of snow.
Different structures distribute the weight of snow differently, therefore they are rated for different weight loads. One of our regular clients, The Tire Shop in Leesburg, understands and recognizes the importance of this matter. They did their homework to understand the maximum weight rating for their building, then called Roofing & More for professional snow removal once the accumulation on the roof reached that level.
Removing snow from roofs is a very dangerous and demanding job. The foremost concern is always safety – safety of each person on the road and on-site. Roofing experts with experience in snow removal will know how to get the job done without personal injury or damage to roofing materials. Secondly, you need to plan exactly where the snow will be thrown off. You must be aware of gas meters, heat pumps, bushes and other structures that could be seriously damaged by a heavy snow load. And you don’t want to pay one person to remove snow from a sidewalk or parking lot just so another can throw more snow from the roof onto that area!
Detailed and proper planning is key to safety – and saving you money – in situations like these. At Roofing & More, we know how to handle anything Mother Nature can throw at a residential or commercial roof. Each member of our team is trained and equipped to safely deliver solutions to our customers. As soon as we knew this storm was coming, we executed our plan and we are ready – ready to serve our Northern Virginia neighbors in need! Give us a call at (877) 398-4555 if you think you may need snow removed from your roof, or if you experience any leaks or ice damming in the coming days. We are honored to be celebrating 21 years of roofing Northern Virginia and surrounding areas.

Do you think icicles hanging from the edge of your roof are pretty? Read on to find out why icicles can be a sign of serious problems.
Often when homeowners call for an estimate on a new roof system, the estimator is focused on quoting the cheapest price and does not even mention a metal drip edge and its importance. In many states (Virginia being one of them), drip edge is not code and is not required by the county, state or even the manufacturer. At Roofing & More, we recommend drip edge and many other items on our Arlington roofing systems that others do not.
This picture was taken by one of Roofing & More’s sales reps, Richard Sullivan. Icicles aren’t a good thing!
This photo demonstrates why proper drip edge is important, but there are more issues going on here than meet the eye. Lack of proper drip edge can lead to the following problems.
- Ice buildup. Lack of drip edge allows the formation of icicles, ice damming, ice backup, and extreme weight in the gutter which pulls on the fascia board and weakens it.
- Water damage. You also have water soaking into the soffit and many times running down interior walls. Often this water damage does not show up on the drywall. Once it is found, possibly years later, it creates extensive and very expensive repairs. Water damage also causes mold and mildew issues which can not only lead to odor but, more importantly, health issues for family and visitors.
A simple drip edge properly installed would prevent these issues the majority of the time. This product is very inexpensive at the time of a roof system install, and also very affordable to install on a home where a new roof system is not needed. However, it is critical that you note my words “proper drip edge.” This product comes in many different sizes and shapes. Not all drip edges are created equal and not all are intended to resolve these types of issues.
Look out your window. If you see something similar to this photo, pick up the phone and call (877)398-4555 or click here for a FREE, no-obligation consultation with one of our highly trained Project Consultants today. It is critical that you know what questions to ask and that you are dealing with a person that has your best interest at heart.
At Roofing & More, our Project Consultants are highly trained individuals that never focus only on the lowest price for roofing in Arlington. They focus on what you need and what is in the best interests of you and your family. They focus on what will solve your problem for the long haul. Is price important? Absolutely. That is why we always ask a lot of questions and why we always offer “good”, “better” and “best” system solutions with a clear explanation of each, and the features and benefits to you. We look forward to serving you.
