Following our recent spring rains, you may have made the unpleasant discovery of water leaks in your attic or water spots on your ceiling. You may also be contemplating whether you should immediately call for a Northern Virginia roof repair, or if the problem is minor enough to delay repairs. Don’t procrastinate roof repairs, even if the problem seems minor! Even small leaks can cause serious damage when left unaddressed. Here are a few tips to help you know when to call a professional roofing contractor like Roofing & More.
- Visually inspect your roof several times a year, especially after a storm or heavy rain. Check for damaged shingles, bent metal and anything that looks out of place. If you notice water stains in the attic or moss on the roof, these are also potential problems that demand professional expertise.
- Roofs require routine maintenance, including gutter cleaning, refastening and realigning gutters, resealing flashings and painting exposed metal to prevent rusting. Neglecting any of these tasks may result in leaks and serious problems for a home. If you don’t want to tackle them yourself, call a professional.
- If you see a leak but cannot find its source, call a professional roofing company. We know how to locate the problem area, even when it’s far from where the leak eventually lands.
- If your roof is more than 15 years old, call for a professional evaluation of its remaining lifespan. If you do not know how old your roof is, we can help.
