Common Washington DC Roofing Problems

Your roof operates 24/7 to keep your home in Washington DC safe from the elements. In the event that your roof gets damaged or wears out, it can silently start letting the outside in, causing major problems down the road for your home. All potential consequences of an unrepaired roof are mold, mildew and leaks.

You will spot your roof before it fails if you recognize the symptoms to watch for, and get a convenient replacement roof to keep your home comfortable and safe. These are the most common indications in the DMV area to keep an eye out for:

Your Roof is Just Too Old

The typical asphalt roof takes about 20 to 30 years to reach the end of its service life. If you know your roof is getting close to its 30th birthday, you should plan to have your roof replaced.

If you have a splendidly robust and elegant tile roof, 40 to 50 years of useful service can be expected from your roof.

There are several factors which contribute to the successful age of your roof. Asphalt shingles, for example, are commonly placed in layers. If your original roof has a shingle layer installed above it, then this secondary layer will reduce your roof’s overall life expectancy.

You Have Shingles Damage

When your shingles start getting washed out, and you find granules in the downspouts of your gutter, this is your way of asking for support from the roofs. Asphalt shingles diminish in colour, losing large quantities of granules as they start failing. A weakened shingle doesn’t shed water effectively, and becomes a moisture entry point.

Leaky Roofs

When after heavy rainfall you find mysterious water spots on your walls, it’s a strong indication your roof is leaking! The symptoms of a roof with water leaks are typically tough to spot. When you find water stains inside, finding a roofing contractor would be worth your time. Our roofing inspection pros team will be glad to come out and look, and give you the peace of mind you deserve!
