How to Protect Your Roof from the Summer Heat

Don’t Let Heat and Sun Damage Spoil Your Summer Fun

As the temperature begins to rise, it’s important to remember the risks that warm weather can pose to your roof. Stay on top of things by being aware of the warning signs and taking the preventative measures that our roofing team recommends to stop the summer sun from compromising your roof.

Learn to Spot the Signs

  • Curling or warped tiles
  • Discoloration or fading
  • Cracks

If you spot one or more of these warning signs on your roof, it may be too late for preventative care. Contact our plumbing team to inspect your roof and determine the extent of the damages.

Take Steps to Keep Your Roof Safe

These simple maintenance steps can help you avoid dealing with the major repairs. While some can be safely performed on your own, it’s important to consult a professional if you have any doubts. Call (719) 497-1005 before you attempt any roof maintenance that’s out of your comfort zone, or to handle major tasks that require professional skills and experience.

  1. Attic maintenance – If you have an attic, take some time to make sure that it’s properly ventilated, and that any exhaust fans or vents are functioning as they should.
  2. Take care of your gutters and downspouts – When summer rains occur, you want to make sure water is directed away from your roof. When that water heats up, it can cause water damage and compound heat damages simultaneously.
  3. Make sure your shingles are up to the task – This one you’ll need to call our roofers for. We can help you make sure that the protective coating on your shingles, which helps them resist sun damage, is still present.

In addition, you should always make sure your roof is getting regular maintenance and inspections from our highly trained professionals. We can keep you updated on any flaws or risk factors that need special attention and fix small damages before they have a chance to grow. Contact us online to schedule a consultation with our team!
