Title: Protecting Your Roof in the Summer


1
Protecting Your Roof in the Summer
2
  • Contrary to popular belief, roofs can be just
    as susceptible to damage in the summer as they
    are in the winter. During this time, your roof
    may be vulnerable to sun damage and dangerous
    winds, hail or rain from summer storms. This
    summer, take some precautions to protect your
    roof.

3
  • The key is knowing the warning signs and
    contacting a roofer as soon as damage is detected.

4
Do Early and Late Summer Inspections
  • It can be beneficial to check your roof for
    damage at the beginning and end of the summer.
    These inspections can help safeguard against the
    inclement weather of the coming seasons. Plus,
    early detection can protect against further
    damage. This effectively prevents small repairs
    from becoming major repairs. Have your roof
    checked for missing, worn or damaged shingles,
    gutters or flashing, water leakage and hail
    damage.

5
  • Make sure the roofer checks the exterior and
    interior of the roof for structural issues, the
    drains and gutters for proper drainage and the
    ceiling and walls for signs of water damage.

6
Always Inspect After a Major Storm
  • Major storms can cause major damage,
    especially when theyre accompanied by strong
    wind and hail, so its important to check for
    roof damage after inclement weather.
    Thunderstorms and tornadoes can be sudden and
    brutal, not only causing immediate damage, but
    also leaving your roof at risk. These storms
    damage trees surrounding your home, leading to
    branches or even the trees themselves falling
    onto your roof and causing major structural
    damage.

7
  • They can also crack domes or skylights.
    Additionally, hail cracks or break shingles, as
    well as clogs gutters. Finally, high winds can
    blow shingles away or blow debris into your
    gutters or drains. Although checking your roof
    after a storm cant prevent damage, it can help
    you detect damage early, forgo major, costly
    repairs and guard against additional damage.

8
Check for Sun Damage
  • Of course, summer is the sunniest season and
    roofs dont have any protection from the sun,
    making them especially vulnerable to harmful
    ultraviolet (UV) rays. Fortunately, regular
    inspections can help manage sun damage. Near the
    end of the summer, have your roof checked for
    obvious signs of damage, including, warping,
    fading and chipping on the shingles, flashing and
    other structures.

9
  • Any reputable roofing contractor Edmonton has
    to offer should be able to fix this damage
    quickly, efficiently and affordably.
