Roof Damage After a Storm
What a weird couple of weeks it has been with all this rain! Homeowners in Phoenix, Arizona is used to seeing most of the rain activity during monsoon season in the summer months. These storms aren’t just bringing more rain… the wind and hail too! We haven’t had hail in what seems like years! Maybe it’s time to check on your roof… Just think about taking the brunt of all the force your roof is withstanding as it protects you!
Mother nature sure is beautiful when she pours from the skies but does cause some issues to our roofs. Rain damage is the most common and noticeable roof damage. As your roof weakens and storms continuously beat on it, the material weakens and the shingles start lifting. When this happens, water seeps into the holes and cracks with nowhere to drain… The moisture eventually begins to cause even more damage and can even create problems inside the home.
Storms in Arizona can be dangerous when the intense winds roll in. We see trampolines flying from backyard to backyard, a wall of dust coming straight at us, and our freshly washed car getting smacked with that wall of dust. What we don’t see is that shingle starting to lift up, completely come off, and fly away! You could be missing many pieces of your roof and you wouldn’t even know unless you checked. This brings us back to water damage because the rain, hail, and occasional snowfall can sit right where your shingles and other roofing materials are supposed to be!
Hail seems to be showing up more and more out of the blue. These balls of ice range from all different sizes. Some are as small as a pea while others can be as big as a soccer ball! No matter how big or how small, ice hitting your roof does damage. It may not be right away but overtime hail can breakdown the roofs material, creating issues in the future.

4 Benefits to Replacing Your Roof
When you start noticing more and more damage on your roof, it creates a sudden concern because you don’t know when it’ll eventually give out. You don’t want to be sitting on the couch with your family watching a movie when the roof suddenly comes crashing down! Waiting too long to replace the roof is dangerous and could lead to even more repairs. While safety and costs are always big concerns, what about the benefits? Here are a few benefits to replacing the roof…
1.) Reducing Roof Repairs- With a new roof, you don’t have to worry about needing to spend money on your roof every so often on repairs. A new roof can last anywhere from 20 to 50 years!
2.) Reduce Risk of Interior Water Damage- When there is damage to your roof, it can also affect the interior of your home. The holes in the roof can cause water to leak into the interior of the home causing drywall damage. With a new roof, no need to worry about water damage!
3.) Safety- As mentioned earlier, safety is always a big concern. A new roof offers less mishaps that may occur with an older roof like loose shingles falling. Not only would it hurt to have a piece of roof fall on your head but imagine the liability and guilt if it was a friend or other visitor.
4.) Increased Value to Home- Buyers like upgrades they don’t have to do themselves. We think kitchens and bathrooms but people are also concerned about the structure of the home too. They want to confidently move into a new home without having to worry about their roof falling on them in the middle of the night.
