With the summer season on its way, it’s safe to assume that hot temperatures will arrive soon enough.
Summer heat can impact your home in a variety of ways, and that definitely holds true with your roof.
Note: aging roofs are most likely to experience damage from the sun.
Here are a few things you need to be aware of:
• Old shingles can buckle and/or erode in extremely hot temperatures.
• Thermal shock, as a result of contraction and expansion, can cause splitting and cracking during the summer months.
• High humidity levels can cause condensation under the shingles, leading to water leaks into your home and/or water damage.
With all this in mind, it’s critical to inspect your roof several times throughout the summer. That’s especially true if your roof is aging and you have concerns about its ability to hold up to extreme temperatures.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of putting winter in the past. Just make sure that your home is ready for everything the summer heat will throw at it.
