How UV Rays affect your Roof

On a hot sunny day, the temperatures of a traditional roof can be more that 50 degree Fahrenheit warmer than the outside temperature making it very easy to make an egg over medium above your home. This intense heat on the roof can contribute to higher inside temperatures, higher energy costs and uncomfortable indoors conditions for anyone without air conditioning.


As UV rays breaks the down the molecular structure of your roof extremely slowly, other evident damages occur. These include shingle discoloring, and warped/ crumbling shingles. When warping occurs, the roof shingles will curl and loosen. When crumbling occurs the material begins to decay and fall apart. A roofing technician can provide an accurate diagnose of possible damage and extend the life of your roof with regular maintenance. Contact us today! 919-906-3791
