sun damage roof

 

 

Summer sun in Texas and what that means for your roof

 

We are approaching the dreaded (and also the reason we all live here) hottest summer month coming up- August!  What most of us don’t realize is that our roofs need the same protection that your face and body needs every day from the sum.

That hot sun exposure will cause your roof’s built-in protections to degrade and compromise its integrity. This can cause serious issues that you do not want to be dealing with such as:

  • Missing or damaged shingles
  • Leaks

How to spot the damage

 

Unlike storm damage, heat damage doesn’t happen overnight. That everyday sun bathing causes gradual damage that builds up over time and leads to other problems developing. The signs of heat damage are subtle and easy to overlook or not even think about. Make sure you’re always on the lookout for warning signs like these:

  • Shingles that begin to show discoloration
  • Shingles that show signs of curling
  • Missing or damaged shingles
  • Blistering or peeling exterior paint on the house

When you  start to notice your beloved roof is getting a sunburn, contact our roofers to perform a professional inspection and get the help you need from us!
