Common Summer Roofing Problems in Highlands Ranch


Unfortunately, there’s no good time for a roof to have a problem, and summer is no exception. With the sun’s high UV rays and sudden afternoon rain storms, it’s possible it could damage your Highlands Ranch roofing materials. Shingles can be loosened by heavy rain and buildup in gutters can also lead to deterioration.  Roof adhesives can melt and require repair with the high temperatures and intense sun exposure.

Unfortunately, this summer has also seen a fair amount of hail throughout the Highlands Ranch area. Hail can do significant damage to your roof and can strip shingles of granules, break tiles, or dent roofs. It’s important to get your roofing materials inspected after these severe changes in weather occur.
