Winter is all but a memory, the April showers have brought the May flowers and summer is just around the corner. We’re all embracing the warmer temperatures and soaking up as much of the sun as we can, but is your roof ready? We often think of insulation and roofing issues when the snow and ice have left us with a cold, drafty house, ice damming and roof leaks but do you know what the summer heat can do to your home? Well, here at Planet Roofing, your trusted Denver roofing contractor, we do and we are here to help get your home summer ready.
- Ventilation! This is very important to your roof! Heat in your attic that cannot escape due to lack of ventilation will literally cook your roof! Proper ventilation and insulation will help keep an adequate temperature in your attic.
- Curling shingles. Indications: moisture, bad decking or potentially improper installation. Either way, it’s a good idea to have this checked out
- Granules in the gutter. These are there to protect your roof from harmful UV rays. Without them your roof is left open to the elements. Roofs expand and contract with the hot and cold temps. This can cause a lot of stress on your roof and can be made worse depending on the age and quality of your roof.
From beginning to end, as a Denver roofing contractor we have built a process and a business around the needs of our customers. Planet Roofing is here to help!
