As we are beginning to ease out of February and into March, many people are breaking out their shorts, sandals, and sunscreen. While you may have stayed inside all winter, it is important to remember that your roof did not, and it could have experienced some damage due to fluctuating temperatures. We are entering the wet season, and the last thing that you want to deal with is a leaking roof. Let our Louisville roofing professionals have a look to see if your roof was damaged or needs replacement.
While Kentucky isn’t known for having severely cold winters, we do get below freezing, and temperatures can vary greatly from day to night. It is this temperature variation that actually damages roofs more quickly than constant freezing temperatures can, and is known in the roofing industry as “thermal shock.” Unfortunately, a roof that has undergone thermal shock will be cracked and peeled, and begin to fall apart. This means that it is less able to hold out moisture or heat.
As we are entering spring, it is more important now than ever to get your roof repaired or replaced. The wet season brings heavy rains, and with a roof that can’t stand up to the elements, you’ll be left with leaks, mold, and damage that extends far beyond your home’s exterior. In addition, if you have an inefficient roof, then chances are you’ll be spending more money to keep your house cool when summer hits.
Don’t wait to get the roofing repair you need. Contact our professionals today for a free estimate and get protected against the rain and the heat.
