When is the last time you checked to make sure your roof was in good shape? After all, your roof protects your house from the elements all year long. Now is the time to begin preparation for extreme weather.

“Regardless of your area’s climate, it is imperative that your roof stays up-to-date so that it can protect your home efficiently,” said Aaron Phillips, corporate director of technical systems for TAMKO Building Products Inc.

Time-consuming roof projects can be a nuisance and a stress to homeowners. But, by staying on top of repairs, a roof will stay well-maintained.

When the temperatures start to rise, it is important to assure that your roof can breathe. The area underneath your roof needs access to cooler air so that the warm, expanding air can escape. Allowing the warm air to escape can help the home maintain a comfortable temperature without overworking your air conditioning unit. When you consider how hot the temperature can get inside your attic, it is easy to see why proper ventilation is so important.

It is important to inspect your ventilation system, both inside and out. Ensure that nothing could block the escape of air, such as insulation or debris, and look for signs of wear.
