Common Summer Roof Problems

During the hot summer months, there is often an increase in roof issues among homeowners. Because there is more moisture and humidity in the air, a common issue we see is mold occurrences and loose shingles due to strong winds. The increased severity of climate influences can truly affect the roof both structurally and on the surface.

Metal flashing is sometimes used to divert water in other directions, and to prevent leaks. If you see a leak in your roof, it is better to go ahead and get it taken care of before it gets any worse. Eventually, the wet areas can spread, and in wood frame houses this can cause the roof to collapse. Preferred Exterior has been in the roofing industry for years and can help solve your roof problems.

A good way to know if you have roof damage is to look at the sides of your house. If you see mold spots on the side of your house, then there is probably a leak. The best thing to do is make sure you replace your asphalt roof shingles every 15-20 years. These and other types of shingles can deteriorate over time, and can even come off of your house in inclement weather.

If you feel like your roof needs another expert opinion, we here at Preferred Exterior would be more than happy to come to look for any damage and talk to you on how we can improve your quality of life. We want to keep you and your family safe and dry.

Many times branches fall during thunderstorms and need to be cleared. If there is a tree over your house, then you do have to clear branches occasionally. Most of the issues in the summertime either come from water damage or stem from strong winds as these are more prevalent in warmer seasons. Although, too many branches and detritus on your roof can cause stress on your roof’s structure.
