Top Roofing Maintenance Tips For Summer 2022
How can you possibly keep your roof in good working order when the scorching heat and long days of summer are in full swing? If you want to properly maintain your roof throughout the summer, perform a thorough inspection yourself or, even better, hire a local roofer to do it for you!
Search for algae and mold
Algae thrives in moist, humid conditions. Roof shingles might be consumed by algae, causing the roof to deteriorate. If you aren’t careful, it can also harm the gutters.
Look for moss
Roof shingles that have not been cleaned of moss will fracture and curl if they come into touch with the wet roof. This might result in an ice dam, water damage, damaged shingles, and/or damage to the roof deck.
Inspect the attic
According to reports, the temperature in your attic can reach 150 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer. Throughout the day, your roof absorbs a large amount of heat and then transmits it to the attic. Asphalt roofs, on the other hand, absorb less heat than other roofing materials.
Trim the trees
If a storm passes over, the branches of trees that are close to your roof may scratch or harm it. It’s possible for the roof to be damaged by a storm if it’s broken. There should be an 8-10 foot gap between the limb and the top of your roof surface.
The following are just a few of the tips that may help you avoid the harmful effects of summer. Roof maintenance should not only be done before summer, but it should also be done on a regular basis.
