You hardly ever hear about how important it is to keep your roof in great condition for the summer months, but you would be surprised to learn just how important it is to get your roof ready for the summer.
It is vital that you have enough ventilation for your roof and your home; approximately 90 percent of homes do not have enough roof ventilation. A poorly-insulated roof and home can cause serious problems for a homeowner. If an attic is hot, the house will be hot, which will significantly increase the amount of money you spend to cool your house. Also, a hot attic can cause damage to the shingles on your roof. These shingles can, technically, be burned from the underside of the roof, which can lead to the shingles becoming more fragile and brittle. Brittle shingles are unable to hold up against winter weather.
Also, if your roof lacks enough ventilation, some roofing companies may void their warranties, claiming the roofing material was not properly maintained. Ventilation is a huge component of maintaining your roof. It also plays a large role in your home’s energy efficiency.
It is crucial to maintain your home year-round, as winter and spring are not the only seasons that can harm your roof. Roof maintenance is a year-round activity.
