3 Common Summer Roofing Problems

While the winter season may be the harshest in concern with your roof, the summer season presents its own problems. Today's blog from your favorite roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks focuses on a few common roofing problems experienced during the summer season:

1. Deteriorating Shingles. 


Over exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause your asphalt shingles to deteriorate faster. Super dry shingles can eventually fall off, leaving your roof deck exposed to the elements. If you notice any loose shingle granules in your gutters or downspouts, your shingles may be reaching the end of their life. Be sure to have your Lake of the Ozarks roof inspected regularly so you're aware of the condition of your roof and how soon you may need to budget for a new one. The roof adhesive can also melt and require repair during extremely high temperatures and intense sun exposure.


2. Storm Damage. 


Summer storms can bring about conditions just as bad as those during the winter. While snow and hail may not be involved, strong winds and heavy rains can take their toll on your roof too. If your roof is already in poor condition, i.e. loose shingles, cracks, or sagging areas, these storms can bring about major issues, such as leaks, resulting in costly roof repairs at the Lake of the Ozarks.

3. Moss and Algae Growth. 


The summer season is prime time for moss and algae growth. Moss coverage on your roof can cause moisture damage and rotting of the wood underneath your roof surface. Overtime, moss can become more attached and require pressure washing to remove it. It's important to have a professional complete this task as high water pressure on your roof can cause damage and other moisture issues, which is what you're trying to avoid.
