Monsoon Season & Your Roof
This summer has been a slow one this year, but we know, the rain, strong winds, and lightning are just around the corner. Have you prepped your roof for monsoon season yet?
How can I prep my roof for the monsoon season?
Clean Gutters- During monsoon season, we get A LOT of rain. It is crucial your gutters are clear of any debris so the water can drain properly. Without proper drainage, the water will create a pool on your roof resulting in costly damage.
Trim Trees- You’ll either want to get out the trimmer or call a landscaper to cut any overhanging branches. The strong winds can easily cause any branches to break off and come crashing down on your roof. Falling branches can cause serious damage resulting in costly repairs that no one wants to pay for.
Scan all openings- Over time, areas around openings in the roof fail. The flashings are one of the materials that need replacing. A flashing is a thin metal material that roofers use to direct water away from certain areas in the roof. They’re typically installed to surround features like vents, chimneys, and skylights.
Schedule a professional roof inspection- To get the most accurate status of the condition of your roof, find a roofing contractor you can trust and schedule an inspection. They’ll be able to fully inspect the roof, provide options, and repair or replace it if needed.
