Summer Roofing Tips

6

Summer is a great time to get out and do some  home exterior maintenance.  Here are  quick tips to remember about your roof during the summer:

 

  1. Asphalt shingles are brittle and can crack easily in the summer heat-  If you have to get up on your roof and walk around your roof be very careful.  As you walk on shingles that are brittle and dry from the heat they can crack.  Wait to walk on your roof for hours that are not impacted directly by the sun or on overcast days.
  2. Trim nearby trees and shrubbery that may be touching your roof- With the good weather it is a great time to make sure that your roof is clear of any debris.
  3. Clean our your gutters- Do this during the summer months to avoid bad weather.
  4. Schedule a roof inspection or a roof replacement-  Summer months are some of the best months to have your roof replaced.

  1. Very nice points! Also do an ‘attic test’ by visiting the attic during the day with the lights off and look for pinhole spots of lights coming into the attic, traditionally these are found around chimneys and the vents.

      Great tip Ron! Thanks!

  2. I like how you talked about maintaining your trees so that they don’t puncture your roof. I can see this being a real problem especially during the rainy season. I’ll have to remember your tips on gutters in the future!

      Thanks for the comment Jack!

  3. I just had the thought that branches that poke at your roof also pose a risk of transporting insects inside the house. I can see why trimming them from time to time would be important to protect the roof and house in general. I’ll have to consider your tips so I can keep my roof in top shape.

      Great point about the insects being led to homes via branches. This can be especially bad if your roof is extremely old and rotting. Thanks!
