A roofing system plays an essential part in a home’s defense against the outside elements. Because of that, roofs should be expected more often than other parts of a building.
Strong winds can severely deteriorate the state of a roof’s shingles and slates. Falling leaves, debris, twigs, etc. can clog your gutter system, making drainage become difficult and therefore leading to water infiltration that affect not only the integrity of your roof, but also of your whole house.
Heavy rains can seriously damage your roof, especially if your roof has yet some other issues such as missing shingles or improper installation.
Storms may also cause tree branches to fall on your roof. Because of that, you need to check the state of your trees from time to time and to cut on the branches that are in a poor condition and likely to wreak havoc on your home.
Extreme heat can also be seriously harmful for a roofing system. Such damage can also affect the ventilation system and alter your indoor temperatures.
