Summer Tips to Keep Your Roof in Tip-Top Shape

Summer's here, and with it comes scorching sunshine and afternoon thunderstorms. While you're busy firing up the grill and planning pool parties, don't forget about your roof – the shield that protects your entire home from the elements.

Here at CMAC Roofing, we want to help you ensure your roof stays cool, calm, and collected all summer long. Here are some key tips for keeping your roof in tip-top shape:

  • Inspect Regularly:  Summer's a great time to get a good look at your roof. Look for missing or damaged shingles, warped flashing, and any signs of leaks in your attic. After heavy storms, make a point to check for any new issues.

  • Clean Out the Gutters: Clogged gutters are a recipe for disaster. Debris buildup can cause water to back up under the shingles, leading to leaks and potential structural damage. Regularly clean your gutters throughout the summer to ensure proper water flow.

  • Trim Overhanging Branches: Tree branches scraping against your roof can damage shingles and create entry points for water.  Trim back any branches that are close enough to make contact with your roof.

  • Ventilation is Key: Proper ventilation in your attic helps keep your roof cooler and prevents moisture buildup. Make sure your attic vents are clear and functioning properly.

  • Consider a Professional Inspection:  For a complete peace of mind, schedule a professional roof inspection with CMAC Roofing. Our experienced inspectors will thoroughly examine your roof, identify any potential problems, and recommend the best course of action.


By following these simple tips, you can help your roof weather the summer storms and keep your home protected all season long. Remember, a healthy roof is a happy home!
