Can the heat damage my roof?
We live in one of the hottest states, Arizona. The sun is constantly shining, and the heat is always rising. You might be wondering, can the heat damage my roof? That is a fair question considering the Arizona heat can be harsh on just about anything.
Extreme Heat & Your Roof
When people think of Arizona, the unbearable heat is the first thing to come to mind. Your roof can agree! During the summer when temperatures are at their highest, your roof will reach 150+ degrees. HOT! Those high temperatures lead to the breakdown of roofing materials. Shingles loosen, tiles crack, and even flat roofs bubble.
To ensure your roof is in tip-top shape during the summer and winter months, it is recommended to have a roof inspection 2x a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. If not twice a year, at least annually.
During an inspection, the roof specialist will check the structural integrity, materials, and signs of damage throughout the ceiling and walls. For any signs of damage, the inspector will bring options for roof repair or replacement. Whether you have loose, broken, or cracked tiles, a licensed roofing contractor can get your roof back in tip-top shape.

Is your roof summer ready?
The summers here in the Phoenix, Arizona area can be brutal when you combine the heat, humidity, and wind. Not only are we sweating in the 110+ degree weather, we will also be sticky from all the moisture monsoon season brings! If you’re complaining, how do you think your roof feels?
Take-charge of your roof’s health by being proactive in ensuring it’s ready for summer and monsoon season!
Get out the yard tools or call a landscaper to trim branches away from the roof. The trees may provide you a shaded roof but branches too close will eventually cause damage. When monsoon season brings high wind conditions, those tree branches can whip and break, causing harm to the gutters and/or tiles.
Clean Roof & Gutters
Clean the roof and gutters before the monsoon rain comes in. The leaves and other debris that accumulated over the months, need to be removed to ensure proper water drainage. This will guarantee water doesn’t get trapped, sit, and cause damage.
The Arizona heat and sun are harsh on our roofs. This combination will cause roofing material to become brittle and crack. It is recommended to have a roof inspection done once a year to check for issues like loose gutters, cracked tiles, and other damaged roofing material.
Most people will agree spending money on repairing your roof instead of remodeling the bathroom just doesn’t give you the same happy feeling… I agree! However, it is the better decision. Getting repairs done proactively will save you lots of money in the long run!
