Home Check: ‘Sun and Rain’ Can Ruin the Roof

By Stacy Mellete

Summer in ‘The Sunshine State’ may involve thunderstorms, which will are likely to occur during the afternoons. This kind of weather takes up almost half of the summer season. In the past couple of days, it looks like signs of intermittent rain are already starting to show in places near the Tampa Bay area, as indicated in this WSTP.com weather forecast:

Overnight storms throughout the Tampa Bay Metro will produce heavy rain and frequent lightning. Scattered showers will start the morning and be on and off the entire day. The SW moist flow should generate several storms Friday afternoon.

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with afternoon temps in the mid to upper 80s. Look for a bit less rain this weekend. Saturday 50% chance of storms, partly sunny skies, and daytime highs in the upper 80s. It will be hot and humid on Father’s day with scattered afternoon storms and partly sunny skies.

Florida’s alternating weather can easily wear out your residential roof in Clearwater FL. Rotating exposure to the heat of the sun, rain and wind can weaken your shingles and can wreak considerable damage over time. Of course, you will have no way of knowing that your roof is leaking until your area experiences heavy rains.

Moreover, on extremely hot days, a worn-out shingle will tend to absorb more heat. When this happens, your household will experience more humidity and you will be forced to use the AC more often than you normally would.

Hence, a regular roof inspection is necessary before any minor damage worsens and causes you more troubles and more spending in the future. It is best to get the help of Affordable Roofing, the preferred professional contractor for roof repair in Clearwater FL.
