Though the Southern US has 4 defined seasons throughout the year, recent history has blurred the lines a bit. While not entirely unique, our weather can be down right schizophrenic at times!
Whether it’s a snowstorm that is preceded and followed by spring-like weather in a matter of days or temperature swings of 30 to 40 degrees in a day, drastic changes in weather wreak havoc on roofs
The main culprits that are so damaging is quick, changing weather and debris build up on roofs due to falling leaves and storms, which can cause leakage and other types of damage to your shingles. Keeping your roof and gutters clean and any damage repaired promptly is key in making sure your roof can handle the next storm.
A proper roof inspection from a roof contractor is the best way to be sure your roof is ready for anything mother nature may throw at it.
Ensure your roof is installed properly, with quality materials is the first step in making sure your home is properly protected from the elements. However, even the best installed, high quality roofs can fail if not maintained properly. So once you have the roof you need, be sure to keep up with maintenance and make repairs as they are needed.
Though it’s winter, we can expect strong storms and rain, leaves and debris, cold days and even hot days, in the coming months and beyond, if you haven’t had a roof inspection for a while, now is the time to have it done. Knowing the current state of your roof and learning what to expect can save you thousands in repairs.
