What to Look For as the Nebraska Fall Weather Approaches
The Nebraska fall weather can change from day to day, and even from morning to night. You can have a range of 40-60 degrees in just one day. These types of weather conditions can cause your roof to expand and contract. When your roof does this structural movement, you may notice your shingles may blister or crack. You may even notice changes in the seams of your roof.
One of the keys to help your roof stay in proper working conditions and reduce the wear and tear on it, is to make sure you have proper ventilation and your roofing material is made for extreme weather conditions.
The heat from the sun, can cause your roofing material to expand during the day, and shrink at night when the temperature decreases. This constant change can cause damage and reduce shingle life.
To help with roof ventilation, place vents near the roof’s peak and soffit vents in the eaves of the roof. The air will flow through the soffit vents and out through the roof vents. This will help ease your roof changes during the extreme fall temperatures in Nebraska.
Make sure that your attic is well insulated but not plugging the spaces around your soffit vents. This will ensure that the air will flow properly through the soffit vents and up through the vents in the roof.
Just remember to watch for changes in your roof during these extreme fall weather conditions.
