Summers in Phoenix can be unpredictable: scorching heat one minute, monsoon storms and flash flooding the next. With such extreme weather, your roof can take quite a beating, leading to leaks or other problems.
How do you know if your roof can handle another storm season? A roof checkup performed by the experts at KY-KO Roofing may be your best defense this summer. Here are just three reasons why you call us for a Phoenix roof checkup after severe monsoon weather.
Why checking your roof after a monsoon matters
1. Have us look for leaks
Whether you have a flat roof or a roofing system with tiles or shingles, your home can develop leaks that cause damage to your sub-roofing layers, insulation, attic, and more. Monsoon storms that hit one after another can also lead to standing water on your flat roof or loose tiles and shingles.
After a summer of rough weather, any small leaks may worsen and leave your home vulnerable to mold, mildew, and wood rot.
2. We can assess damage from wind
Heavy rain is just half the battle; high winds and dust storms can also wreak havoc on your home. Any loose tiles can break off, and if you have trees or saguaros next to your roof, you may end up with significant damage from branches or trunks on your roof or gutters.
When your tile or shingles are loose, rain water has an easy path to the other roofing layers. A roof checkup can determine how much damage your home has from wind gusts.
3. We’ll check the gutters
Don’t forget the importance of gutters for your home. Gutters can become blocked or damaged from monsoon storms. With all that debris clogging up the gutters, the run-off rain water can back up under the tiles and shingles, creating a big headache that can compound damage caused by small leaks.
A thorough roof checkup should include your gutter system to make sure your home is well-protected from the elements.
