Roof Maintenance After The Storm - Phoenix, AZ

Monsoon Season in Phoenix can bring extreme weather conditions, including high winds, hail, heavy rains and, of course, the epic dust storm that blanketed the entire valley. October will mark the one-year anniversary of the massive hail storm that hit most of the Phoenix Metropolitan area — a storm that has caused $3.5 billion dollars in damage and still counting since damage is still being discovered and repaired. Mother Nature’s elements, including the extreme heat of summer, can add up to cause severe damage to roofs all over the Southwest and particularly in the Phoenix area.

Now that the season of heat and storms is coming to an end, there are some simple roof maintenance activities every homeowner and business owner should perform before the winter rains arrive. Simple repairs now can prevent costly damage from the winter storms and rain.

General Maintenance Tips
Perhaps the most important item homeowners and business owners should understand is that just walking on a roof can cause damage, and can be dangerous for people not accustomed to heights. It is best to use a pair of binoculars to examine sloped roofs for monsoon damage. A roofing professional is recommended for roofs with parapet walls that prevent a clear view from the ground.

Here are some things to look for:

Finally, summer rains encourage native and non-native trees to add plenty of growth. Overhanging branches can scour against roof surfaces, and especially on asphalt surface, scrape away the protective granules. Take the time to trim tree limbs that are dangerously close to the roof to prevent future damage.

If homeowners or business owners discover cause for concern or are uncomfortable checking the roof for damage, they should call in a licensed, bonded and insured professional roofer to catch or repair damage before it becomes a major problem.
