If you live in Virginia, you know that a warm spring brings an even hotter summer. With a hotter summer comes even more sunshine. The harsh rays of the sun can be tough on your commercial roofing, as your roof is always exposed to the elements. While we can’t control your roof’s exposure to the sun, we can keep the severity of the damage to your roof under control.
How do you know if your roof has sun damage? If you notice that your roof is discolored, this is a pretty sure sign that your roof may be damaged from the sun. These areas will look bleached, and this comes from especially harsh rays of the sun on certain parts of your roof. Some areas of your roof will likely receive more direct sunlight than other areas, which is normal, but it’s common for bleached areas to show up on only portions of your roof rather than the entire thing.
Another sign of sun damage is warped or crumbling roofing. The heat from the sun’s rays can cause the shingles on your roof to peel and curl away from the roof, or it might be crumbling altogether.
The most effective way to protect your roofing from sun damage is to have a protective roof coating applied to your commercial roofing. These coatings, if they are good quality, will help your roof reflect sunlight. This will not only help protect your roof, but it’ll also reduce the energy costs of your building.
