With summer starting tomorrow, many Connecticut residents will be eager to head out and enjoy the sun. The winter of 2013/2014 was pretty brutal and nothing will feel better than lying on the soft grass and feeling the warm breeze.
However, when July and August come around you will need to be mindful of high temperatures and your roof shingles. Many homes have experienced cracked and brittle shingles due to intense summer heat and if you are not careful you could be looking at expensive replacements.
When temperatures rise the heat will continue to build in the attic. This causes the temperature to rise even further. If your attic is not properly ventilated this will force the heat to rise and when this happens it can start to crack and blister your roof shingles. You will notice cracks around the edge of the shingles and the blisters will appear across the entire shingle.
