Most homeowners want to avoid roof-related expenses as much as possible, but there are certain times when it becomes necessary to call an

Alexandria, VA, roofing company

. While a do-it-yourself roof repair may seem like a good idea at the time, many ambitious attempts end in failure and cost even more to repair than if the homeowner had hired a professional.

Below are some situations in which you are better off to obtain professional assistance for your Alexandria, Virginia, roofing project.

  • A windstorm, hailstorm or severe thunderstorm blows through, leaving tree limbs down. Chances are, if there was some tree damage, your roof took a hit as well. While the damage may not be significant, there may be slight damage that can lead to bigger problems if left unaddressed.
  • You just survived a brutal winter with heavy snowfall. All of that snow weighing down on your roof can really bring on the wear and tear fast. Whether you just made it through the winter, or are winterizing your home for the coming snow season, having a roofing professional take a look is a wise decision.
  • Your home or roof suffers from poor design. Unless you are an expert, you may not know whether this is true for your home. But poor roof construction can deteriorate more quickly and result in a weakened roof structure and poor drainage. If you are unsure about the condition of your roof, obtain a professional consultation to get peace of mind.
  • Your roof has previously had very little maintenance. Whether the trouble is with you or the previous owners, insufficient roof maintenance can lead to algae growth and a number of other problems. Give your roof a check-up to ensure it will keep your home protected for years to come.
  • You have any questions or concerns about your roof and gutter system.
