Roof Replace­ment: Put on a new roof. Cleaned up nicely after­wards. via National Con­sumer Reviews Web­site. Cen­tre­ville, VA. 12/18/14

Excel­lent.  Tech­ni­cian came to pro­vide esti­mate and was able to com­plete job at that time.  Tech­ni­cian (Chris) was on time, pro­fes­sional, per­son­able  and was kind enough to re-nail two loose gut­ters.  He also advised me of the pos­si­ble life remain­der on my roof . Esti­mate given was half the amount given by another com­pany.” via National Con­sumer Rat­ings Web­site. Cen­tre­ville, VA. 10/14/13.

They got the job done in one day and did a good job of clean­ing up. Also, when I asked about sev­eral issues a few days later, they sent pic­tures of what they had repaired before putting on the new roof, which was very help­ful. They also came out to assess a ques­tion about the roof.” via Local Magazine’s Con­sumer Rat­ing Web­site. Sub­scriber from Cen­tre­ville, VA. 9/22/13

All about your gutters

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

So, you want to know more about your gut­ter sys­tem. Here is a quick guide about your gut­ters. You may notice a leak, or dam­age to a part on your gut­ters. This quick guide allows you to inform us of the issue, and have some­one access the issue accu­rately. Each new gut­ter sys­tem by Mar­shall is cus­tom built for your home. We offer expe­ri­enced esti­ma­tors, pre­cise mea­sure­ments, and excep­tional prod­ucts. Below is an expla­na­tion of each part of your gutters.



gutters With identification



























Rake Board: A rake board is an eave which runs along the gable end of the roof of a mod­ern res­i­den­tial struc­ture. It is a place on your home eas­ily vis­i­ble to guests of your home. Rot­ten and dam­aged boards should be replaced to improve the look and extend the life of your roof. 


Frieze Board: A frieze board is a hor­i­zon­tal board between 2 inches and 6 inches wide.


Fas­cia: Fas­cia is a ver­ti­cal frieze board. 


Sof­fit: A sof­fit con­nects the over­hang under your gut­ter­ing sys­tem with your home. Sof­fits pro­tect against mold and rot­ting wood work. 


Gut­ters:  A gut­ter is a shal­low trough fixed beneath the edge of a roof for car­ry­ing off rain­wa­ter. Main­tain­ing your gut­ters will extend the life of your roof.


Down­spouts: Down­spouts are pipes that carry rain­wa­ter from a roof to a drain or to ground level.


Gut­ter Screens/Protection: Gut­ter screens and gut­ter pro­tec­tion sys­tems pro­tect your gut­ters from debris and leaves by pre­vent­ing them from clogs. 


Gut­ter Protection



We have two forms of gut­ter protection.


Gut­ter Screens help pre­vent debris from clog­ging the guttering.

Does my roof need to be replaced? It may just need a repair

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Roofing Northern Virginia






























There are so many fac­tors that decide if you need a roof repair or roof replace­ment. Many home­own­ers are sur­prised to hear that many leaks are due to poor flash­ing. Below is a new flash­ing job around a chim­ney. If the flash­ing has been dam­aged around chim­neys, vents, etc. this can cause leaks. We rec­om­mend con­sid­er­ing a replace­ment for roofs with leaks over 20 years old. We are always happy to pro­vide free esti­mates on roof repair or replace­ment esti­mates! Give us a call for North­ern Vir­ginia and Maryland’s Fair­fax, Prince William, Arling­ton, Alexan­dria, Fauquier, Prince George’s and Mont­gomery coun­ties! We are more than happy to exceed your expectation!

How To Clean Vinyl Siding
Check out our Partner’s Blog and learn how to effec­tively clean your sid­ing. Here are some prob­lem areas, and clean­ing solutions. 

  • Dirt, grime, soot and chalk. For gen­eral dirt­i­ness all you’ll need is a bucket of soapy water — dish soap or com­mon laun­dry deter­gent work well, a soft bris­tle brush and a gar­den hose. Apply the soapy mix­ture by hand and thor­oughly rinse the sid­ing with clean water from the gar­den hose. Avoid pro­longed or high pres­sure rins­ing of open ven­ti­lated areas and keep clean­ing solu­tion off sur­round­ing fix­tures and sur­faces not sched­uled for wash­ing.  NOTE:  We do not rec­om­mend power wash­ing vinyl or poly­mer sid­ing as it can cause mois­ture intru­sion, dam­age, and/or dis­col­oration.  Instead, we sug­gest using a house wash that con­nects to your hose.  This is the sim­plest and most effec­tive way to clean stub­born sid­ing stains. A small amount of soapy water shouldn’t affect plants or shrub­bery, but if you are con­cerned about plant­i­ngs close to the house select a soap prod­uct with­out added per­fumes, dyes or mois­tur­iz­ers. Before using, test a small amount of the solu­tion on the plant and wait a few days to see if there are any effects.
  • Stains. Occa­sion­ally sid­ing will incur a stub­born stain, like algae build up, that does not come off with stan­dard house­hold deter­gents. In these cases it is best to request a cleaner directly from your sid­ing con­trac­tor. They will be able to pro­vide you with prod­ucts designed to work with the sid­ing at hand but even still, always test a small amount in an incon­spic­u­ous location.
  • Mildew. Vinyl sid­ing is mold and mildew resis­tant.  How­ever if the sid­ing is dirty, mildew could grow on the dirty coat­ing espe­cially in warmer cli­mates with con­sis­tently high humid­ity.  Mildew appears as black spots on sur­face dirt and is usu­ally detected in areas not sub­jected to rain­fall, such as under eaves and porch enclo­sures.  To remove mix together: 1/3 cup of deter­gent (Tide, for exam­ple), 2/3 cup of Trisodium (Soil­Max, for exam­ple), one quart of 5% Sodium Hypochlo­rite (Clorox bleach, for exam­ple) and three quarts of water. (Cau­tion: Greater con­cen­tra­tions may cause dam­age to vinyl sid­ing.) If this solu­tion does not eas­ily remove the mildew, you can request a mildew-specific cleaner from your con­trac­tor or local build­ing mate­ri­als retailer.
