How Florida Sun Affects Your Roof

Sun Roof Damage

Florida Heat Can Cause Major Damage to Your Roof

At Big Al’s Roofing, we understand the greatness of Miami sunshine, but we are also aware of the damage it can do to residential roofs. We offer residential roof repair in Miami, FL, and will be happy to inspect your structure for any sun damage. If you have been living in Miami for a while, you should keep an eye out for these symptoms of sun roof damage:

Chipping

One of the most common results of roof sun damage is chipping or cracking. You will notice that shingles or tiles have chipped and display clear markings and discoloration. Chipping of your shingles or tiles can be problematic, as it can lead to further and more significant roof damage, especially when accompanied by rain and thunder storms.

Curling

Do you notice parts of your roof look bent or curled? This can be the result of consistent sun exposure. Homeowners who have shingle roofs, and have had the roof structure for some time, are most prone to curling damage. Like with chipping, curled shingles can lead to more serious roofing defects, and should be corrected before extensive damage occurs.

Decay

Miami sun can cause decay on your residential roof. Shingle roofs in particular, will start to look irregular, rusted, and rotted. If you notice these characteristics on your shingles, you should contact a professional roofing service for further inspection. The lifespan of your roof is also a factor, so newer roofs experiencing these symptoms may have used low-quality material. For roof repair in Miami, FL, callĀ 305-506-2353.
