Like many cities in Northern Utah, West Jordan is known for high temperatures in the summer and below freezing temperatures in the winter.
This large fluctuation in temperature can take a big toll on your roof. When shingles are exposed to high temperatures, without proper ventilation, it causes what is called ‘baking,’ This results in early deterioration of the shingle and can significantly shorten the lifespan of your roof — as well as increase your heating and cooling bills. In the wintertime, the drops in temperature aggravate the problems caused by the summer heat and further damage the shingles. This also applies to other roofing materials like TPO and EPDM.
Utah is also known for high winds, which regularly impact the city of West Jordan and cause damage to roofing systems and the homes they protect.
