5 Signs Your Roof Is Suffering From Heat Damage

5 Signs Your Roof Is Suffering From Heat Damage

Are you excited about the summer heat? Texas is known for its very hot summers, and even though you might be ready for it, that doesn’t mean your roof is. When you think about issues your roof can face, the heat is not a common one to think about. Instead, people think about hail, thunderstorms, tornadoes, etc. This is a common mistake that many people make, but one that Snow Roofing and Exteriors will help you avoid. Heat damage is a real thing, and we have listed 5 signs to help you identify when it is happening to your roof.

Cracked Shingles

Heat damage can cause your shingles to crack. When your roof is exposed to high temperatures, your shingles will get dried out and become brittle. And when this happens, your roof is more susceptible to leaks. No one wants to deal with water damage, so you will need a quick repair or even a complete replacement if this happens.

Shrinking and Blistering Tiles

Are your roof tiles shrinking and blistering? This is a common occurrence with roofs during the summer heat. The heat can dry out the tiles and cause them to buckle and become mishappen. When your tiles blister, nails and screws can pop out and shingles can fall out. 

Your shingles will need to be replaced if this happens. They are no longer effective and will not provide the support your roof needs.

Missing Shingles

Just because it is summer, doesn’t mean you get a break from the thunderstorms. In fact, summer storms are very common in Texas and can cause a lot of damage to your roof. If your roof is missing shingles, this could be a good reason why. This can lead to a serious risk of water damage and it needs to get addressed as quickly as possible.

Weakened Roof

A weakened roof is a result of heat damage. Extreme temperatures are damaging to the structure of your roof and its shingles. But there are ways to reduce the amount of heat your roof is exposed to. For example, you can plant trees or tall plants to offer shade. Additionally, we can install reflective cooling strips or install roof ventilation systems.

Mold Damage

Mold thrives in areas that are moist and hot. Therefore, common heat damage is mold growth on your roof. Summertime weather brings rain and humidity. Mold loves to grow in areas that are dark and damp. Check under your roof’s awnings or in corners of crevices of your roof. Mold stains and weakens your roof’s structure. It can also extend into your home and threaten your family’s health.
