How does weather in the Valley affect my roof?
During the summer, your roof will rarely get a break from the relentless UV rays the sun shines onto it. That heat and radiation will slowly cause the moisture and oil in your shingles to evaporate, withering the shingle itself. The blistering heat of Rio Grande Valley summers will definitely cause some wear on your roof tiles or shingles.
Many people know the dangers of flash flooding to your foundation or flooring. But consider that all of the rain that eventually gathers on the ground first has to beat down on your roof! Heavy rain can strip away pieces of shingles, or erode sections of roof tiles. Consider flashing your roof for extra protection against this type of vulnerability.
Sudden Hail Storms
Though hail storms are not necessarily common in the Rio Grande Valley, even one piece of hail can leave a mark on your roof. When a large hail storm rolls through, your roof will have taken a pretty substantial beating. Whether you’ve got a tile, shingle, or sheet metal roof, hail and ice storms can cause structural damage.
Long Cold Fronts
Rapid temperature changes cause expansion and contraction, which will damage your roofing materials over time. As the heat expands your tiles or shingles, they become more elastic and less durable. Cold snaps will then create cracks in the weakened material.
