Your residential roofing system is specifically designed to endure whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at it – from freezing cold winters to scorching hot summers, torrential downpours to occasional hailstorms – but this does not mean that all roofing materials will perform the same way no matter the climate so it is important to understand which type of roof works best for your specific location.
In today’s post, your trusted experts over at Vista Roofing Inc. explains the effects weather can have on your roofing system.
Rain is what affects your roof the most. In states like Florida, Louisiana, and Alabama where rain is common, it is important to get a roofing system with a high water resilience. It is also crucial to schedule a regular roof inspection to prevent leaks from developing.
Summers in South Carolina can get pretty hot with day temperatures often reaching over 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This can cause some roofing materials to develop cracks and become brittle over time. If you live in an area where you have to deal with extreme heat, be sure to get a roofing system that can stand up to the constant onslaught of the sun.
Snow is another major culprit when it comes to roof damage. An accumulation of snow puts a lot of extra weight on your roof which can cause structural damage. Ice blocks can also wreak havoc on your gutters and downspouts, further threatening your home. If you live in a state that sees a lot of snowfall, roof maintenance before, during and after winter is a must.
