In Maryland, we get all four seasons and this constant change of weather has negative effects on your roof. If you know what to expect, you can care for your roof before small problems cause major damages.
As a roofing contractor in Aberdeen, we have lived and worked in Harford County as a professional tradesman for over 15 years, and we can share our experiences with local seasons and the impact to your roofing.
In this article, we will review common weather in all four seasons that we experience in Maryland and how this affects your roof.
Spring in Harford County
Temperatures in the spring are usually between 40 to 60 degrees which is moderate. We often experience varying wind and rainstorms during these months which have caused a lot of damage in Harford County in the last few years.
There was a storm years ago where Harford and Baltimore County had gusts of wind exceeding 60 miles per hour. Our Aberdeen roof repair experts helped a lot of homeowners and businesses repair and replace their roofs during that event.
Summer in Harford County
Summertime in Harford County can be hot and humid. The heat on the roof can make the shingles easily exceed 100 degrees and the interior of the attic space is even hotter. It’s imperative that there’s proper ventilation of the attic. Otherwise, it can cause rot and your roof to eventually fail.
An accomplished Aberdeen roofer such as Tar Heel Construction Group will take care of any issues you are having.
Fall in Harford County
The fall in Hartford County is moderate and temperatures can average in the 50s. We have experienced some heavy rainstorms and even hail in these months. Hail is a major concern for roofs and the few rogue storms a year have caused a lot of damage for Harford County homeowners. Storm damage impacts thousands of homes per year. Do not wait to start the insurance claim process if your roof suffers storm damage.
Winter in Harford County
The coldest months cause the roofing to contract and can often leave the shingles brittle over time. We get a few snowstorms in Harford County which can cause issues with the weight load on failing roof systems. We have also experienced water finding its way past flashing during large storms.
If you suspect that your roof has been damaged by the winter weather do not delay having it inspected by a top-rated roofer in Aberdeen.
Asphalt shingles expand and contract with every season in Maryland which causes stress on the overall performance of the roof. The windstorms, large rainstorms, hail, and snow also add added wear and tear to your roofs shingles.
It is important to keep an eye on your roof by regularly inspecting the outside shingles from the ground if possible. Also consider climbing into your attic space to inspect for any mold, leaks, dampness, or anything out of place. This is often the first place you will see issues involving your Aberdeen roofing system.
