Keeping your building’s roof in good condition all year round seems like a heavy task. However, by sticking to a solid roof maintenance program and having a reliable maintenance crew, this undertaking shouldn’t be impossible.
In construction, resilience refers to the ability of a building to withstand extreme weather conditions while maintaining a habitable environment even without power. Your home’s roofing system is an essential component of this resilience. With a damaged roof, your home will basically be uninhabitable and unusable.
The summer heat can be the final push to failure for old flat roofs, especially those made from felt or bitumen. The stresses that flat roofs experience during hot weather may cause more problems in winter.
Extreme summer heat can actually damage your roof, especially if it’s old. This is why roof inspections and repair in the warmer months are important.
