Your Roof and the Toronto Summer Heat

Changes in Temperature Cause Stress to your Roof

Can you feel the heat? The city of Toronto issued a heat wave warning early Thursday, in anticipation of “oven-like” temperatures that you are no doubt experiencing this very moment. Roofing companies all across the greater Toronto area will advise you to take extra care of your roof during this time, especially if your roof has pre-existing damage.

Yesterday’s 2 pm high of 32 degrees slammed the city and surrounding area, as the heat reached nearly 50 percent above normal temperature. Last week, the area was hotter than the Sahara, and this is not an uncommon occurrence. The harsh Toronto climate can be intense in both Summer and Winter, with massive temperature fluctuations over the course of these seasons. These fluctuations are very tough on your roof, and the heat and moisture can cause the materials to expand and retract.
