Install A New Roof In Time For Summer

Summertime can bring many problems for your roof, from intense heat to heavy rainfall. Here are some of the most common issues homeowners face during the summer months and what you can do to prevent them.

Common Summer Roofing Problems

Heat Damage: Extreme heat can cause shingles to become brittle and crack, leading to leaks and potential water damage. To prevent heat damage, keep your attic well-ventilated to reduce the temperature inside your home.

Storm Damage: Heavy rainfall and high winds can cause damage to shingles, gutters, and flashing. To protect your roof from storm damage, clear gutters and downspouts of debris and have a professional inspect your roof for any weak points.

Leaks: The combination of heat and rain can lead to leaks in your roof, which can cause damage to your home's structure and contents. To prevent leaks, have your roof inspected regularly and address any issues as soon as they arise.

Moss and Algae Growth: During the summer, moss and algae can thrive on your roof, causing discoloration and damage to shingles. To prevent moss and algae growth, keep your roof clean and debris-free, and consider using a moss and algae inhibitor.

UV Damage: The sun's UV rays can cause damage to your roof over time, leading to discoloration and cracking. To prevent UV damage, consider using a roofing material that is specifically designed to reflect UV rays.

By understanding the common problems that can occur during the summer, you can take steps to prevent them and protect your roof. Regularly inspecting and maintaining your roof can help to prolong its lifespan and ensure that your home stays safe and comfortable throughout the summer months.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content.

For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing.

For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
