Hidden Roof Leak Repair Company Northern VA
At Northern Virginia Roofing & Siding Company we want to inform you of hidden dangers such as hidden roof leaks when looking for a home to buy. Regardless of whether we are the home & roofing inspector that you choose to inspect your new home, we hope that this information arms you with knowledge that will protect you against a major oversight that homeowners often make.
Unfortunately, it is extremely easy for a seller to cover up problems with their roof and the seller could just as easily not even know about problems with their roof. We understand that buying a new home is a very exciting time but that happiness can quickly turn to tears after the purchase is finalized and a very expensive roof leak occurs. Most of the time and depending on the situation, the previous homeowners cannot be held liable or responsible for any costs occurred after-the-fact and what’s even worse is that almost all home insurance policies do not cover existing problems such as water damage that was present when the house was purchased.
Traditional home inspectors are a necessary part of buying a home in order to know exactly what you are buying. However, unless they are a roofing expert many problem areas can even be overlooked by them as well. Or if they do find a potential problem, they will recommend that you get a second opinion from a roofing expert.
That’s where we come in and say WHY? Why not hire a home inspector that is also a roofing specialist! That is what we offer at Northern Virginia Roofing & Siding Company.
Hidden Roof Leak Repair Service Northern Virginia
Sometimes we find that although there are no immediate problems with the roof, its age and appearance together may warrant a new roof which can be negotiated in with the asking price. Older roofs can start leaking at any time; you will want a roofing expert to assure you whether that will happen sooner or later. On the contrary, just because we find a problem doesn’t always mean that it will need a new roof replacement; sometimes it’s just as simple as a repair. As we inspect your roof we will look for the obvious such as missing or damaged shingles and signs of any leaks and whether or not there is adequate ventilation. Then we take our search farther into your attic we look for damage caused from water, black mold, damaged wood framing, or humidity which happens when ventilation is an issue. Water issues can also be a fire issue if it reaches electrical wiring. These water leaks usually happen when the flashing on the chimney or the seal around vents has deteriorated. This usually only requires a simple repair but if neglected, it can cause a lot of damage as water is let into your home.
A seller could easily deceive new buyers by simply buying special products that can conceal roof leaks for a short time, which will break apart shortly after you move in. Similarly water damage spots inside the home can have discoloration spots on the walls and ceilings and simply be covered up with paint and other materials that will only work until there is another leak. Finding water damage can lead an inspector to look further, to eventually find damage to the interior structure and other major issues such as: insulation damage, mold infestations, electrical wiring damage, and walls that need to be replaced. Finding this before making a deal could save you thousands of dollars in unexpected costs.
