In Atlanta, Georgia, the summertime brings the heat. However, these record-high temperatures wreak havoc on your commercial roof’s surface. The excessive sunlight causes rapid degradation to your roofing material and thermal shock, which is the sudden expansion of the roof’s surface as it sits under the beaming sun.
Sun rays cause roof materials to split and crack. As the roof’s surface expands, it absorbs heat, making indoor temperatures and utility bills skyrocket during the summer months, especially. For these reasons, building owners and facilities managers must invest in commercial roofing that has incredible endurance in the sun’s harmful rays.
