UV Rays

Did you know that summer heat we all love can actually be quite destructive when it comes to roofing? When UV rays are strong/hot enough, they can actually dry out shingles on your roof, eventually leading to cracked and even missing shingles. As they are exposed to the sun, they become brittle, eventually falling off completely. This leaves sections of the roof interior exposed to rain, debris and even insects.

If you notice any wear-and-tear to your roof, we recommend a roofing inspection as soon as you can. Neglecting to address these minor issues could lead to a more serious problem.

Florida Weather

Although we are known as the “Sunshine State”, during the summer months this can seem far from true. Higher temperatures actually lead to a greater chance of stormy conditions, involving high speed winds and heavy rain. This can lead to wind lifting shingles, turning more minor damage into an immediate and serious problem.

If you are worried your roof may have been damaged during a recent storm, feel free to reach out for an inspection. We’d be happy to help.

Ventilation

Did you know ventilation is an important part of keeping your roof healthy? Improper ventilation can actually lead to humidity and moisture buildup in the attack/top of your roof. Eventually this can compromise the integrity and insulation material, leading to dry rot and mold.

We recommend having an inspection performed every summer to ensure your roof is in tip top shape.
