Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to give your home some thorough cleaning and inspection. It’s the perfect weather to start your home maintenance because it’s not too warm nor too cold to work outside.
Although the roof is a naturally sturdy structure, the shingles you see from the curb are just one part of a bigger system. Your roof may actually be suffering from disrepair and may even require replacement; you just can’t see it because the critical parts are hidden under the shingles.
Winter is easily the most challenging season for a roof. The colder season’s weather patterns can take a toll on even the most durable of systems. To avoid more complicated roofing concerns, it’s important to know what problems your roof will potentially face this winter.

Commercial and residential roofing systems are built using materials that have different expansion and contraction rates. This means that when exposed to different outdoor temperatures, some of these layers move differently than the others, causing roof substrate movement. Advanced Roofing takes an in-depth look at this phenomenon and how its effects can be minimized.
