How bad weather impacts your roof

The primary function of your roof is to keep the weather out of your home, but sometimes that means it takes a beating. How does the weather impact the lifespan of your roof? 

Every roof goes through wear and tear from the weather throughout its life.However, the amount of extreme weather conditions in your area determines how fast the wear and tear affect the life of your roof.


Since the wind doesn’t run evenly across the surface of your roof, it can easily cause problems for your roof and gutters alike. Strong winds can loosen nails and blow away loose shingles, leaving gaps exposed. 40-50 mph winds can cause significant roofing damage. After a windstorm, check your roof for any missing shingles or any damage that the wind may have caused.


While roofs are installed for the exact reason of protecting you against elements like rain, over time, depending on the severity of the rainfall and general maintenance, your roof can sustain water damage. If you don’t take care of your roof, this is more likely to be an issue. Missing shingles or tiles allow water to seep into your home. This is another reason regular inspections are essential.


The heat from the scorching sun can cause severe damage to your asphalt roof.

The heat causes roofing materials to expand, and as they cool, they begin to contract. This process can cause slow, long term damage that increases as the years go by. The UV rays from the sun can also damage roofs over time, breaking down the microscopic bonds that hold tiles and shingles together.

When you hire a professional roofing contractor, you ensure nothing is overlooked in an inspection and any work needed is done right the first time. Roofing professionals like DBS Industries Limited, have the experience and knowledge you need to make sure your roof stays in good condition for as long as possible.
