The Importance of Inspecting Your Phoenix Roof Before Winter

The Importance of Inspecting Your Phoenix Roof before Winter

In this blog, learn the importance of having your roof inspected by a professional roofing company before winter.
Phoenix, Arizona

One of the great things about living in Phoenix, Arizona is that the winters are quite mild. The temperatures might get a bit nippy, but you don’t have to worry about major snow storms. Sure, the occasional frost will come through, but no major accumulation.

Fortunately, that means that you don’t have to worry about major snow dams piling up on your roof and threatening leaks or other damage. However, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to worry about your roof during the winter season. It is essential that you hire a roofing contractor in Phoenix to perform a roof inspection before the winter season begins and to make any needed roof repairs.

Here are just a few reasons why you need to have your roof inspected by a licensed roofer in the 85024 area before winter begins:

Reduce the Risk of Leaks

All summer and fall, your roof was likely battered by heavy rains and winds. No matter what type of roof you have, your roof may have taken some damage. You could have loose shingles, broken tiles or even cracks in your foam roof. Having your Phoenix tile roofing inspected, or your shingle roof in 85004 repaired is your first step to avoiding a disaster.

When the rain comes during the winter, you could have icy cold leaks. Having a leak is bad enough, but when the water is ice cold and the temperatures are already low, the leak is that much more unbearable.

Even if there is no rain, the condensation during the winter can lead to moisture inside your roof, which can contribute to dangerous mold growth.

Ensure Adequate Insulation

If your roof has cracks or other damage, it will be much less effective at insulating your home during the winter. Not only will you feel more uncomfortable, but you’ll also end up paying out more in electricity and heating costs. A roof inspection can reveal these issues so you can make the right roof repair and feel cozy and snug all winter long.

Ensure Safety

Winter also ushers in the holidays, and that means you are likely to be climbing up on your roof to hang Christmas lights or other decorations. If your roof has suffered damage, or if it has loose tiles or shingles, you could easily fall and hurt yourself while trying to put out those decorations.

Putting large Christmas decorations on a weakened roof can also be a safety issue. You don’t want a huge snow man to fall through your roof in the middle of your Christmas dinner.

A yearly roof inspection is essential to the health of your roof. Getting the inspection just before the winter begins is the perfect time for Phoenix residents because the monsoon season has passed, and a roofing contractor can discover any problems before they become potentially devastating.

Don’t let your holiday celebrations be ruined by leaks or other roof problems. Call Allstate Roofing for your annual roof inspection now, and take care of whatever Phoenix roof repair is needed. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing that your home is protected, and your holidays will seem a little brighter.
