Fighting a Defensive War Using Roofing and Windows
Arlington County in Virginia is home to the United States’ defense hub, protecting the capital just across the Potomac River, as well as the entire country. It is a highly strategic point that acts as the country’s shield against threats from within and beyond its borders. The roof and windows of your home is simply no different.
While your home may not protect you from live shells and smart bombs, it has its own nemesis to worry about: the weather. Blistering summers and brutal winters can do enough damage to a home like a salvo of rockets raining down on an enemy tank column. When the roof and window shows signs of damage, it is enough of a reminder to fix it right away. You never know when the next wave of “weather shells” will start bombing your house again.
The smallest crack provides an open window for rain to seep into the house. A crack is usually a sign that means the roof has sustained damage after being fired upon by harsh weather rendering it too weak to withstand another assault. The same can also be said for windows.
You can make temporary repairs to the cracks on your roof or windows but it is not a long-term solution. What it can do is buy you some time, though sooner or later you may have to take more drastic measures such as buying a replacement.
When the damage grows worse, it can leave more than just leaky ceilings or a chilly room in winter. It is like a broken defensive line—if the enemy gets through that gap, the entire line falls in jeopardy. Under duress, the small crack can either grow larger or host multiple cracks within its periphery. Arlington has its own share of hot days and blizzards, so never leave your roofing in Arlington under fire.
When it comes to Mother Nature, you can only wage a defensive type of war. The winner of this war goes to the house that can resist Mother Nature’s wrath enough to keep its tenants safe to live another day. Replacement windows Arlington VA homes have may mean the difference between winning and losing.
