Summer Roofing Tips For Homeowners
Summer is a tough time on your roof. Not that winter is any better. Each season presents its own set of challenges. But your roof is the first line of defense against the harsh elements and heat. So we want to give your some summer roofing tips to help you get through the summer a little easier and hopefully help extend the life of your roof.
Look In The Attic
Because of all the heat your roof is going to absorb this summer, you want to make sure that it has proper ventilation. Inadequate ventilation can lead to warps, leaks, premature aging, and roof damage. If it gets to that point, you will need an entire roof replacement.
Check For Leaks
Damaged shingles are the number one thing that leads to a leaky roof. Water makes its way under the shingles, into the decking, and ultimately to the rest of your home. This can lead to mold growth in your attic and be very rough on your allergies.
Replace Damaged Shingles
Replacing damaged or missing shingles will keep your roof safe from Oklahoma’s summer storms. High winds and hail cause extreme damage to a roof as it is, replacing shingles will help to mitigate that.
Keep It Clear
If limbs, twigs, leaves, or debris make their way to your roof, remove them. These things affect the way your roof reflects heat and light, vents hot air, and functions over all. They also make their way to your gutters which can damage not only your roof, but your foundation as well. Trim back trees and make sure nothing can fall on your roof and cause damage.
