Summer Roof Maintenance Tips

Summer can be one of the best times of the year, but it could also become your roof’s worst enemy! As the sun beats down on your roof, it can easily be damaged if you don’t keep an eye on things and ensure all necessary repairs are made to protect your roof through the hot summer months. 

Here are some tips to help you maintain your roof in tip-top shape this summer so that you don’t have to prevent costly repairs come wintertime.

Check Your Roof For Damage

Storms and high winds can damage your roof, but winter weather—particularly hail and heavy snowfall—can cause the most destruction.  To see whether or not your roof has suffered from extreme weather conditions, inspect it for blemishes, moss buildup, or other issues. If you happen to find damage before summer begins, take care of it as soon as possible.

Additionally, if you find leaks or broken tiles, ask your roofer what needs to be done before it becomes more serious. Sometimes all it takes is some minor TLC from the pros to get your roof back in shape!

Pay Attention To Your Shingles

If you own a home, keeping your roof properly maintained is crucial. While shingles can last for decades, they wear down with exposure to UV light and debris, so it’s important to have your roof inspected every few years by a licensed contractor. At Above The Rest Roofing & Siding, we check all of our clients’ roofs for loose, torn, or broken shingles during our routine inspections.

Clean Our Leaf Guards And Gutters

Keeping gutters and leaf guards clear of debris will help prevent water from pooling on your roof. If water puddles, it can seep into your home and cause damage. To ensure your gutters don’t have extra moisture, clean them out every season!
