Spring is officially here, and with the spring and summer months comes more sunshine. Warmer weather and sunny days are certainly a welcome change in the weather. However, the harsh rays from the sun can be pretty tough on your commercial roofing, which is constantly being exposed to the elements. Sun damage is an unavoidable occurrence, but the severity of the damage can luckily be kept under control.
Discoloration on your roofing is a tell-tale sign of sun damage. Sun damage often shows up as bleached areas on your roof where the rays of the sun have been especially harsh. As some areas of your roof will probably receive more direct sunlight than other areas, it’s common for these bleached areas to only show up on portions of your roof.
Roofing that begins to warp or crumble is also a sign of sun damage. The heat from the sun can cause your roof’s shingles to peel and curl away from the roof itself or to begin to crumble altogether.
The most effective way to protect your commercial roofing from the harsh rays of the sun is to have a protective coating applied to your roof. Our protective coatings help to reflect sunlight, protecting your roof and reducing your building’s energy costs at the same time.
