Your Roof and Summer
Summer is an easy time to forget about roof maintenance! Check your roof to make sure it is in good condition for the upcoming season. We offer free inspections so you don't have to sweat it!
3 Ways Summer Affects Your Roof
Direct Sunlight can be damaging! During the summer increase exposure to direct sunlight can make shingles dry, brittle and cracked, especially on older roofs.
High Humidity Levels are common in our area. WE often endure extremely humid conditions with a rising summer temperature. During this time, condensation and moisture can develop possibly resulting in leaks and mold.
Temperature changes from extremely high daytime temperatures to cooler nighttime temperatures can cause materials to expand and contract. Thermal shock weakens the roofing materials which can lead to the development of tensile stress and the propagation of cracks.
