How Bad Weather Affects your Roofing System?

By Stacy Mellete

A quality and properly installed roof will protect your house from various weather conditions. However, severe weather can also affect your roofing system.

In this blog post, we will discuss different weather conditions that can affect your roof. 

Conditions that Affect Roofing Systems in Tampa, Florida

Florida’s unique climate requires quality and durable roofing options.

As one of the leading roofers in Tampa Bay, we suggest installing a roofing system that can sustain high winds and other extreme weather conditions.

Rain 

Consistent and heavy rainfall can make your roof vulnerable. Here are some of the common roof problems caused by heavy rains: 

  • Moisture 
  • Mold, mildew, and algae growth
  • Roof leaks 
  • Weak shingles 

Sun 

Too much sun exposure can also affect the overall condition of the roof. Even some of the quality UV-protected roofing materials today eventually get affected by extreme heat.

Here are some of the common roof problems caused by constant sun exposure and UV rays: 

  • Weak shingles 
  • Coating damage
  • Bleaching 
  • Thermal shock

Hail

Although hail is not common in Tampa, you should still prepare for it. Hail storms can be a lot worse than rain.

Here are some of the common problems caused by hail: 

  • Leaks and water damage
  • Fractured shingles
  • Cracks in the granule-asphalt surfacing
  • Exposed fiberglass mat 
  • Loosening of the self-seal strip
