Roofing shingles in extreme heat can experience damage such as cracking, curling, blistering, and granule loss. To prevent this from happening, homeowners should take precautions such as preheating roofing shingles in a warm room or storing them in shaded areas outdoors will help the adhesive to adhere to the layers below along the roof deck. During installations in hot weather, installers should keep roofing shingles in the shade or out of the sun to prevent them from sticking together in the bundle. They should wear shoes with soft soles to help prevent surfing or causing other damage to the shingles. Also, highly reflective paints and coatings can further improve your roof’s energy efficiency.
Signs That You Need to Have Your Roof Replaced:
- Seeing sun rays from the roof
- Missing granules
- Curling shingles
- Lots of moss
- Shingles were blown off the roof
- Age of roof
- Jagged edges on the shingles
- Pieces of shingles in the gutters and under downspouts
How Long Do Shingles Last?
The lifespan of shingles depends on the type of shingle and the climate in which they are installed. The most common type of roofing shingles used in Texas can last between 15 to 30 years. There are different types of asphalt roofing shingles. One popular roofing asphalt shingle is the Class 4 shingle. It can survive severe impact from a 2-inch steel ball and also survive extreme weather.
