Can extreme heat harm your roof?

We all know that Arizona is a hot place. We love it, or we hate it. Heat and humidity cause problems for our roofing, just as all extreme weather can. Arizona is a dry heat most of the year, but extreme temperatures, storms, and severe weather conditions can cause damage to both commercial and residential roofs. However, some preventative measures can be taken to help your roof in the extreme summer heat. Ensuring that your roof has proper ventilation is key to reducing the effects of heat and humidity on your roof. If you need clarification on your roof’s ventilation, speak with a roofing professional about the right ventilation for your roof style. 

Heat has a way of making existing problems worse. Be sure to check your roof after storms or if there might be an issue as soon as you can avoid the heat worsening everything.
