Tucson Roof Maintenance & Upkeep

In Tucson the weather can be stagnantly bitter, both hot and cold, or wildly unforgiving (monsoons, high winds, floods, etc.) and in both cases your home is always at risk to damage.

Being that your roof is the part of your home most susceptible to weather elements it’s important to maintain a certain level of upkeep on your roofing system.

 

A Few Roof Maintenance Tips

There are a few things you can do as a homeowner to protect the longevity of the investment that is your roof. Some of those things are:

Check Roof Edges

The corners of your roof are the most prone to weather wear and damage. Be sure to check them out and ensure the sealing in that area is suitable and intact. If anything looks off it should be fixed immediately.

Always keep your roof drainage system clear of any debris and make sure it is secured properly to your roof. Also do a check for any cracks or leaks on the roof, and if there are any do a self repair or call for roof repair immediately.

 

Check Your Rooftop

Aside from doing a search for cracks and leaks be sure to do an inspection of all sealants and rooftop equiptment. If anything needs to be resealed or refastened, then making the fix sooner reduces the chance of unexpected weather damage to your roof.

 

Check Around Your Roof

It may not seem obvious, but doing a perimeter check around your home and roof can save you from costly accidents like falling tree limbs or uplifted debris damaging your roof.

Maintain the trees around your roof by cutting any dead branches and also be on the lookout for loose objects and clutter (building materials, wood, home objects, etc.) that could be thrown around in a storm. This helps reduce the chance of damage to not only your roof, but your home in general.

 

By practicing these tips regularly you’ll typically prevent or catch any roof repairs that need to be made before the problem ever gets too serious!
