Protecting Your Roof

North Carolina summers are HOT.  Your roof is your families #1 protection against extreme heat, cold and weather. But can the summer heat cause damage to your roofing materials?

  • One of the best ways to protect your roof from the summer sun is to regularly check it for damage. Look for missing or broken tiles, warping, and other signs of wear and tear. If you find any damage, call Chad at Cavalry Roofing & Solar to have it properly repaired as soon as possible.
  • Another way to protect your roof is to install a reflective coating. This will help reflect the sun’s rays away from your roof, keeping it cooler and helping to prevent damage.
  • Finally, make sure your gutters are clear. Clogged gutters and overflowing downspouts can cause water to back up onto your roof, leading to leaks and other problems. Keep an eye on your gutters and clean them out as needed to help prevent roof damage from the summer sun.

Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy the outdoors, but it can also be a time when your roofing takes a beating from the sun’s heat. By taking steps to protect your roofing, you can help ensure that it stays in good condition and keeps you comfortable during the summer months.
