Common Causes of Damage on Your Arizona Roof
We enjoy doing an activity with our family on a bright sunny day, but if your roof had feelings, those feelings would be quite the opposite. The harsh summer sun, small period of monsoon season, and winter months are a lot on our roofs to endure every year. Almeida Roofing Inc. knows how destructive our Arizona weather can be on homeowners’ and business owners’ roofs.
The top 4 suspects of roof damage are:
- Sun- While your roof sits in the sun day after day under the harsh UV rays, the roofing materials eventually deteriorate.
- Rain- During our brief monsoon season, the rain can potentially get under shingles and in holes. When water gets into places it’s not supposed to be, catastrophic damage occurs that results in very costly repairs.
- Dramatic Temperature Change- While your roof is blazing hot in the summer and monsoon season finally appears, the sudden cold rainfall causes the roof to swiftly expand and contract, creating cracks that will lead to leaks.
- Branches- During our monsoon storms, we get intense winds. These winds cause havoc for your roof when trees too close to your home get blown around, causing branches to fall. These large branches can crack, break, and displace your shingles.

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.
