Extreme heat leads to premature aging which can eventually harm the exterior as well as interior of your roofing system. Continued exposure to the sun also causes swelling of some materials. Shingles and tiles tend to curl, warp, crack, or even shrink when it is extremely hot outside. It also affects the structural ventilation and indoor temperature of your house.
Strong winds can send shingles flying off your roof and blow away tiles, leaving the wooden panels exposed to the water mutilation or other risks. This also causes the water to leak through the broken seals and loose flashing. Homes that are bounded by huge trees are also vulnerable during a storm. They often bend during the strong winds and rub strongly against the roof. Small branches and leaves also fly all over the house, blocking the drain systems and gutters.
When vulnerabilities such as loose seals, cracked shingles or missing tiles strike, rainwater could leak into the roof space, along the walls, and finally into your house and down into the basement.
