Here’s some information to keep in mind heading into monsoon season
As locals surely know all too well, Tucson might lie in the desert, but it’s not without its share of severe weather. Beginning in mid-June is our monsoon season, during which time roofing companies in Tucson, AZ will surely be kept busy repairing damage due to severe storms beginning high winds, heavy rains, and even hail.
To make sure you’re prepared for the upcoming monsoon season, it’s important to have a roofing partner on standby with plenty of expertise in storm restoration. At Dolan Roofing & Construction, we pride ourselves on our ability to completely restore your home following storm damage. In today’s post, we’re sharing some of our storm restoration expertise, including some information about monsoon season, how to prepare, and what kinds of storm restoration services you can expect from our team.
When is monsoon season in Tucson?
According to the National Weather Service, Tucson’s monsoon season officially runs from June 15 through September 30 each year. “Monsoon” and “desert” may not seem like words that go together, but despite the arid climate, it still does rain here in the desert, and desert rain is much more common during this window of time.
Monsoon season brings rains crucial for plant life, but it also brings destructive storms. Severe thunderstorms in Tucson carry plenty of lightning and thunder, along with high winds and flash flooding. It’s also not uncommon for roofing companies in Tucson, AZ to be kept busy this time of year fixing roof damage wrought by hail.
How do I prepare for monsoon season?
If you haven’t already, now is a good time to prepare your home for the upcoming monsoon season. The best way to start is by scheduling a roof inspection, as well as checking other parts of your home’s exterior, such as gutters and siding, for damage.
Any damage found on your roof, siding, gutters, or any other part of your home should be repaired promptly. If this damage is left unaddressed, it provides a weak point on your home where storms are liable to cause further damage, making future repairs even more expensive.
What storm restoration services are available?
Roofing companies and home exterior contractors in Tucson, AZ will typically offer a range of services for your home. Common services include inspections, repairs, and replacement services for your roof and various portions of your home’s exterior. At Dolan Roofing, our storm restoration services cover the following:
A roof that’s been damaged by storms will no longer be able to perform effectively. This can result in leaks, drafts, and vulnerabilities leading to further damage. Effective roof repairs will be able to address this damage and extend the life of your roof.
Siding repair and replacement
Your roof isn’t the only portion of your home exposed to the elements. Siding also plays an important role in keeping the outdoors, well, out. Damaging winds, debris, and hail storms can damage siding and provide an opportunity for water and wind to enter your home. Repairing or replacing siding after a severe storm is essential.
Gutter repair and replacement
Gutters can deteriorate over time naturally, but they can also be damaged by wind, hail, and more. Without functioning gutters, rainwater is liable to go to places you don’t want it, potentially damaging your foundation, landscaping, and more. Expert gutter repair and replacement keeps your home’s drainage system in working order.
