Arizona is known for our rainy, violent monsoon thunderstorms during the late summer. As we reach the end of monsoon season, it’s a good idea to have a professional from KY-KO Roofing check your roof for signs of tile roof damage. In this blog, we’ll review the reasons why you should call KY-KO to schedule your free roofing checkup here in the Valley.
4 major signs of tile roof damage after monsoon storms
1. Clogged or damaged gutters
Gutters often serve as a clear indicator of the overall health of your roof. After a monsoon, the gutters can become loose. They can also become filled with leaves, sticks and debris, making them less efficient at draining water. You need to unclog the gutters quickly before the clogs create further problems.
Some roofs are more prone to leaks than others. Flat roofs in particular are typically not as efficient at draining water, and there is an increased risk of water pooling on the roof. Over time, that pool can penetrate the membrane of the roofing materials.
You may not be aware of leaks if your home has an attic. That is why you need to contact a professional to inspect the roofing immediately after a storm. The expert will look for loose tiles and sagging areas on the roof. Even if a leak is not present yet, a roofer can prevent problems from developing later.
3. Broken shingles or tiles
Monsoons bring high winds, which can rip shingles off the roof. From the ground, you may be able to see patches of missing shingles on your roof. You should also watch out for shingles and tiles on the ground that may have already broken.
4. Damage from trees
Monsoon damage extends to the trees you have on your property. The winds can knock branches over, and those branches end up striking your home’s roof. Not only will you need someone to repair your roof, but you will need someone to remove the dead tree from your yard.
