One of the biggest factors to consider before replacing your roof is the impact of climate change. As weather patterns shift, homeowners are increasingly faced with the challenge of adapting their roofing materials and design to fit the changing environment. With this in mind, Roman Roofing is here to provide you with an overview of how climate change is impacting the need for new roofs.
The Impact of Climate Change on Roofs
Climate change has led to more extreme weather across the globe, including more intense storms, higher temperatures, and increased humidity. All of these factors can take a toll on your roof’s structural integrity and performance. Hotter summers can cause shingle roofs to become brittle and crack, while increased moisture can damage metal roofs and cause mold growth. Additionally, heavy winds can pull off shingles or even entire sections of roofing material.
How Can You Protect Your Roof From Climate Change?
To protect your roof from the effects of climate change, you’ll need to make sure you have the right materials and design for your region. Shingle roofs are best suited for mild climates with occasional rain or snowfall, while metal roofs are better suited for areas with high sunshine and strong wind gusts. Tile roofs are a great option for areas with heavy rainfall or hail storms, as they are resistant to water damage and fire. GAF Timberline® shingles are also a popular choice as they offer superior protection against wind uplift and intense sun exposure.
What To Consider When Replacing Your Roof
When it comes time to replace your roof due to climate change-related damage or age, there are several important considerations you should make before selecting a new roofing system. Depending on what type of climate you live in, you may need different types of materials. For example, if you live in a tropical area with high humidity and rainfall, tile is often the best choice due to its durability and resistance to moisture damage. Likewise, if you live in a desert region where temperatures reach well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during summer months, metal roofs are often the most suitable option as they don’t absorb heat like asphalt shingles do.
