Summer Roofing – Are You Prepared?

As temperatures rise outside in the summer months, so does the temperature inside our homes. As the heat continues to rise, there are some steps we can take in order to make sure that your home stays cool throughout the season.

Along with keeping your home cool in the summer, it is important to prep your roof prior to the winter in order to maintain a strong structure during Chicago’s harsh winter months.

Here are some steps you can take before updating your roofing in order to make your roof long-lasting and sustainable:

Prep Your Attic

1.  Check to make sure your exhaust fans are working correctly
2. Clear your drain and gutters of debris
3. Look and note any small to large damages you see in the attic
4. Check for loose or missing tiles/shingles
5. Inspect for any bugs or pests that could cause further long-term damage

Summer’s consistent weather allows for the most efficient repairs to be done on your roofing, siding, and gutters. The lack of volatility in changes of weather allow for any roofing problems to subside. Often times, roofing companies are slowed down in the summer as well, so this allows for you to hire the best without waiting for a long time to fix any problems. When it comes to roofing and siding problems, it’s better to take care of them before the problem becomes a larger project.
