Help Our Pets Beat The Heat With Slate Roofing For Your Home

Pet shows and other pet events are scheduled this summer in Winston-Salem. But while we prepare for these fun activities, it’s equally important to watch out for the temperature. What may be just prickly uncomfortable heat to us humans may be deadly to our animal companions, particularly our dogs.

While humans have crafted ways to beat the heat, our dogs might be vulnerable if left unattended. According to this article from www.lowcountrydog.com/:

As their temperatures increase to 106-107, dogs can develop a rapid pulses, begin acting dizzy, collapse or lie down and refuse to walk, develop vomiting or diarrhea, or develop bright red gums. As their temperatures approach 108-110, they can suffer brain, liver, and kidney damage that can be irreversible.

Like our own body temperature, we also need to maintain a comfortable one for our dogs. But when heat builds up inside your house, you may be having problems with your roof.

The roof takes the brunt of the weather that can lead to damage which we may not be aware of and could cause higher humidity indoors. Now, Winston-Salem roofers like Cooley Roofing & Construction have the solution for your roofing concerns.
