The shingles on your home endure a lot of heat and humidity in the Georgia weather and there are even occasional freezing temperatures and storms. As a responsible homeowner, you need to know how your shingles protect your home so you can spot them when they aren’t doing their job any longer.

If you have a shingle roof, it does a lot more for your home than you give it credit for. You probably don’t think about your roof unless you have problems with it, but the fact is, your shingle roof is protecting your family and your possessions.

Shed Water Properly

Your shingle roof is made to shed water and direct rain away from your home. Water should naturally drain away from your home through the shingles and the gutter system so you don’t have water damage that leaks and seeps through to the inside.

Resistance to High Winds

Your shingles are engineered to resist the wind and protect your home during a bad storm. When shingles are completely installed and secure, they protect your home from the damage that wind can bring about in a storm.

Absorption of UV Rays

Your home gets a lot of sun in Georgia, but asphalt absorbs the sun’s rays safely. When you have a shingle roof on your home, your house doesn’t get the sun damage that it could during the hot Georgia months.

Signs of Georgia Weather Damage

There are a number of ways you can spot shingle damage from the ground without ever putting yourself at risk and climbing around on your roof. First, if you see any shingles that have fallen off the roof to the ground, that’s not a good sign. You may be able to see warped or curling shingles as well, which also call for repairs. If you have any leaks in your home or notice water damage on the outside of the home, the shingle roof may be to blame. The easiest way to find out about shingle damage one way or another is to contact a roofing specialist.
