Can you recall the last time you’ve had a roof inspection performed? If not, then now might be a good time to do so. Many homeowners don’t think about their roofs in the summer, but inclement weather, such as extreme heat, can bring an old roofing system to its breaking point. That’s why it’s important to take a moment to review how the increased temperature can affect your roof before the warm summer days set in.
Here at Dynamic Roofing Concepts, we provide detailed roof inspection and roof maintenance plans to help increase the life expectancy of your roof and decrease the necessity for emergency improvements or repairs. Here are three key reasons to have your roof inspected today:
Residential and commercial roofing shingles that have been subjected to hours of uninterrupted sunlight can become degraded over time. Left unchecked, it may cause widespread rot and water damage throughout your attic. If your roof is old or already showing signs of shingle damage, consider having it inspected by a professional before summer arrives.
Thermal shock can take place during the summer months. This is when the roofing materials start to expand with rising temperatures and then cool and contract after the sun sets. As this happens continuously, it can cause the roofing materials to become strained and lead to splits and cracks.
The added humidity during summer can also play a role in roof damage. This is because condensation can set in and cause a buildup underneath the shingles, which may eventually lead to widespread moisture damage. While there are weatherproof materials on the market to prevent this issue, it may still be a threat to older roofing systems.
