Weather Proofing

As weather varies from hot and humid to stormy and windy, having a reliable roofing company is important. Changes in weather conditions creates a need to maintain the condition of your roof throughout the year. You don’t want want to be paying high cooling bills during the summer, or suffering from a leak or drafts in the winter, because of damage that hinders your roof from properly protecting your home or business.

One of the most important things you need to make sure of is that your attic has proper insulation and ventilation. This will allow home or business to be energy efficient, as well as prevent warping or cracking of your roof system prevents mold damage as well as prevents ice damming in the winter.

Another roofing need is having properly installed flashing, which is important in avoiding leaks and interior water damage. Likewise, gutters should always be kept free of leaves, excess water, and debris that may cause clogging. You also need to make sure that the edges of your gutters are a tad lower than your roof’s slope line so that water and snow can easily slide from there.

It is also critical to watch out for signs of aging that may signal the need for a replacement. The AMFAM article lists down some of these signs:

  • Curling along the bottom edge during cold weather.
  • Surface cracking resulting in brittle shingles.
  • Blisters, which indicate poor ventilation.
  • Loss of too many granules.
