When you need an assessment for a roof repair, replacement, gutters or want to check out new and improved products for your home or businesses roof, we can advise on all roofing issues including discussing any concerns you may have about price or longevity. Our roofs withstand heavy rains, long stretches of humid conditions, high winds, sleet and snow. After decades of repairing and replacing all types of roofs in Southwest Virginia, we understand which roofing products hold up here the best with minor maintenance. Our advice is always free and gladly given.
New Wood Shingles for Repair
The roof is a system comprised of many components, not just the shingles. There is the water proofing underlayment (ice shield), the water-resistant underlayment (felt), possible skylights, attic ventilation, drip edge and the flashings- all are important to the success of a long-life system- including the degree of skill with which the job was done.
You can easily identify high quality materials, but it’s a little harder to determine whether a roofer is skilled preforming a quality roof installation. The best shingles in the world could be used but if one of the roof’s component is hurriedly installed, without the proper attention to necessary detail, your roof is doomed to fail. Roof failure may not happen right away but a few years down the road when your roofer could be long gone.
We protect against shoddy work with crew leader oversite during the roof repair/replacement. We have made it quite clear to our roofing crews that we want quality over speed- they are not harassed to move faster. As a further backup check for quality, each job site is supervised closely by a roofing crew manager with years of experience. Our roofers will not take short cuts to try and move things along faster and easier- faster and easier seldom means adequate or better.
Residential Roofing Repairs
Finding and Fixing Leaks Other Roofing Contractors are Unable or Unwilling to do. If you need help to find a roofing leak, contact us we will find the leak. It takes patience, to find a leak. Water testing is a good method of narrowing down the location of an elusive roof leak but it is time consuming which causes some roofing contractors to just repair the obvious suspects. However, what was repaired may not solve the problem and the homeowner is still left with a roof leak (though they won’t know till the next rain) and a smaller bank account. Cardinal Roofing And Gutters guarantees our roof leak repairs- no worries over our commitment.

Free Roof Inspections
Residential Roof Inspections are offered free of charge with no commitments. We will check for debris on roof, dirty gutters, health of shingles, inspection of flashing around chimneys vents and pipes, check for water damage inside of home, check the home’s inside ceilings for water spots, underside of roof (in the Attic) and check for holes made by pests (squirrels among others). A detailed written report will be provided explaining the health of your roof, potential problems, estimate of its additional life expectancy, and finally budget friendly solutions to any problems found.
We always, when possible, suggest repair first, and offer affordable options when replacement is advised. Our intent is to
give you the tools you need to decide what’s best for your property.
Residential Roof Replacements
Many home owners with old and failing roofs are nervous about the costs of a new roof so avoid doing anything about it. Letting the roof go to ruin only increases your problems and cost of replacement, such as replacing the rotting roof deck, getting an exterminator to take care of any pests that made your attic their home, and taking care of water damage inside the home. The health of your home depends on the correct functioning of the roof. The roof not only protects your family from the elements it also allows the house to ventilate- removing excess heat, indoor air pollutants and moisture to the outdoors.
Signs that your home’s roof may
Shingle edges are curled or cupped- indicates a problem with Attic venting.
Shingles have bald spots where ceramic granules are missing or you see a lot of granules in the down spouts- ceramic granules protect the shingle from impact, UV-rays and rain.
Many broken or missing shingles- may indicate the shingles have aged to a brittleness that can’t be reversed.
Roof is 20 years or older. Perhaps a repair may help the roof hang on a little longer but it really depends on the inspection outcome. Some recently manufactured roofing material can last 30 to 50 years, but 20 years ago that was not the case.
Gutter and Leaf Guard Installations
Gutters divert the flooding flow of rain water running off the home’s roof during downpours and channels it away from pooling around the foundation and causing a wet or humid basement. Gutters will also prevent water from running down behind the home’s siding warping vinyl siding, rotting wood framing and seeping inside walls where mold could rise causing health hazards in the home.
Cardinal Roofing And Gutters install all types of traditional residential and commercial 5 and 6 inch half round and decorative box style gutters which are available in copper and steel. We also install seamless aluminum in either standard or heavy commercial gauge metal. Seamless Aluminum gutters are fabricated at the jobsite for whatever custom length is required- thus, no seams. About 70% of all gutter installations are the seamless type.
Leaf Guard can be install over existing gutters or can be part of a complete Gutter package.

Laying White EDPM Membrane
We are licensed, bonded and insured in the state of VA. Being licensed requires the passing of one or more tests, proof of formal training or so many years of on-the-job experience. Being Bonded requires the Roofer to have secured funds, in case of a lawsuit, to pay for damages that have been ordered by a court of law. Being insured requires that a worker who is injured on the job, apply to the roofing company for compensation- not the commercial owners’ insurance- a very important protection that you should insist on and verify.
Cardinal Roofing And Gutters offers services to repair, replace or install several Flat or Low slope roofing configurations that use BUR (built-up roofing or Tar and gravel), Modified BUR membrane (a tar roof using thicker membranes with a mineral deposit manufactured on top of the membrane negating the need for a gravel top, metal, and various plastic or rubber membranes.
Commercial Roof Inspections
At your request, we will rapidly send an inspector to your business to investigate a roof leak or any other concern. Cardinal Flat Roof Inspectors are promoted from a selection of employees that have a long history of experience in Flat Roofing installations and mechanical knowledge of building maintenance issues that can cause problems in a flat roof system. Our inspectors will inspect the entire roof looking for deteriorated sealants, rooftop equipment maintenance issues, tears or punctures in the membrane, debris, and a host of other common or uncommon problems. Photographs of roof faults or potential failures will be taken and will be included in the written assessment to aid understanding.
Commercial Roof Repairs
Even a small leak will interrupt your operations, slow down customers as they maneuver around it, slow employee workflow, cause inventory, equipment, and structural damage. A large leak can be disastrous to your bottom line. At your request, we will rapidly deploy repair teams to fix a leak. A quick or temporary fix will minimize water damage saving you some of the secondary costs which could be attributed to the disaster. A big concern is ponding water which will over time decay all roofing materials. Since there is no way for water to naturally filter off a flat roof, many novice repairs make the ponding worse. Some flat roofs contain a minor incline to drain the water, but usually it is so slight that any repair not done correctly may impede the water’s ability to flow to the drain ports. Cardinal Roofing And Gutters always checks repairs with flowing water- this helps to give assurance the repair was done correctly (no leaks and no ponding). We also offer free estimates on any

Commercial Roof Replacements
Most flat roofs need replacement at some point because patches on patches just don’t hold up over the long haul. When new leaks are appearing with every storm or once a roofing membrane becomes brittle or splits, it’s really time to consider replacing the roof. Cardinal Roofing And Gutters employees have been trained and rigorously tested in the implementation of
flat roof systems
common to this environment- paying particular attention to safety codes for each style. Many State Codes have requirements to be maintained for public safety due to local climates and geographical issues, some are wind resistance, fastening of roof membranes, fire resistance and strength to withstand the weight of snow, ice and slow draining water.
Budget Friendly Cost Estimates
You will not find another roofer that will replace your roof, the way the manufacturer expects, cheaper than we will. Our estimates cover quality underlayment, new flashings, new drip edge and proper number of nails placed in each shingle (some roofers save money by using less nails than they should). Cutting corners during roofing installation, such as reusing old flashing, switching out promised shingles for inferior cheaper ones and using roofing cement where flashing should be used is how some roofers claim a bigger paycheck. Replacing a roof way before its expected lifespan is the most expensive roof you'll ever buy.
