The Sun and Your Roof

The summer sun is here. Time to grab the beach towels and the sun screen. But what about your roof? You may take for granted that if it made it through the winter and spring rains, your roof can take the assault of the sun.

After all, your roof is designed to withstand heat, rain and wind, as the first layer of your home’s protection against the elements.

What Do You Need to Know About Your Roof?

When shopping for your first home, a slate or tile roof might not rank as high on your list of features as that 3rd bedroom.

You are more likely to give greater importance to a feature like a half bath off the family room, than to worry about whether your potential new home’s roof is flat.

If you’ve lived in your home for years, remodeling the kitchen probably takes priority over redoing your roof.
