We all have a roof. We all need a roof for protection from the elements. And, yet, many of us don’t think about the necessity of our roofs until they begin to malfunction. Here, we’ll look at three common summer roofing problems and what you can do about them.
Ultraviolet Radiation can dry out and damage shingles and roof tiles over a period of time. Eventually, shingles and perhaps even some roofing tiles will fall off, leaving parts of your home more vulnerable to further damage.
Moss and algae thrive in the summer heat. They can grow to cover large portions of your roof. Moss harbors moisture, and moisture causes roofs to rot.
Gusts of wind can cause branches to rub against roofing tiles. Branches can slowly chip away at the outer roofing layer until the outer layer becomes the inner, and your roofing tile is rubbed raw. Or limbs can fall onto your roof, damaging its integrity.

Just want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did on my “sad” roof. It looks great & best of all, no leaks around the chimney. Bill was impressed with the post roof clean-up.
