Is your Phoenix Foam Roof ready for the Holidays?

Is your Phoenix Foam Roof ready for the Holidays?

Here are some tips that will ensure that your foam roof is ready for the holiday season!
Phoenix, Arizona

When you live in area where summer seems to last forever, winter has the tendency to surprise you with its fast arrival. If you live in the greater Phoenix area, you know what I am talking about. One day you are still running the AC unit and then the next morning you have to turn on the heat and start your holiday preparations.

While you are busy prepping for the winter and holiday season, don’t forget about your Phoenix foam roof. The hot long summer and wet monsoon season can cause damage and put stress on your flat roof and now is the time to make sure that your roof is as ready to the holidays as you are.

Here are some tips that will ensure that your foam roof is ready for the holiday season:

Damage Check:

Even if your roof seems fine and you have not experienced any leaks (that you know of), now is a good time to get up on that roof and check for damaged areas and weak spots. Maybe you discover cracks on your foam roof or even missing chunks, both can cause rain to seep in and cause major damage down the road. Blisters are a sign of a deteriorating roof as well. If you are not sure that your roof is healthy enough to last through the holidays, contact your local roofing professional to schedule Phoenix Foam Roof Repair.

It is also important to check corners, chimneys, skylights, and other protruding areas and make sure they are sealed properly. Sealing may deteriorate and crack or get brittle during the long hot summers. If that is the case it needs to be removed and replaced.

Get it Coated:

Depending on the age of your roof and the health of your coating (if you have one on it already), you may want to consider having your Phoenix flat foam roof recoated before the winter season. A foam coating can prolong the life of your commercial roof considerably and is an investment that is well worth it. However, keep in mind that roof coatings are specialized products, and only your foam roofing professional can properly coat your roof and ensure maximum protection. Additionally, not all coats are compatible with every roof. This is a job that is best left to a foam roofing contractor.

Clean Gutters:

Cleaning the gutters is nobody’s favorite job. In fact, it can be quite gross, but the benefits of clean gutters cannot be beat. Clogged gutters and drains prevent water from draining efficiently and can even cause it to back up, spilling under and over the roof and cause extensive and very expensive roof damage. Plus, even in Phoenix temperatures drop below 32F in the winter, which may cause water in the drains to freeze and put additional stress on your foam roof. By cleaning gutters and drains you will also eliminate breeding grounds for bacteria and fungi, which are not only unsightly but can be hazardous to your health.

Check for Standing and Ponding Water:

Because even flat foam roofs are installed with a slight slope, water generally does not pond. However, if your foam roof was not installed correctly or is deteriorating and breaking down, water may start to pond in certain areas. While this may not be a problem right away, over time it can cause your roof to degrade by weakening the roofing materials and cause expensive problems in the process.

Cut Back Tree Branches:

While you may think that overhanging tree branches give your home or business a cozy feel, they can cause some not-so-cozy problems for your flat foam roof. If those branches break and fall off - as they may during a rainstorm, for example- they will end up on your roof. Branches and leaves that are not removed from your foam roof can trap moisture underneath and end up being the reason why your flat roof is failing. This is an easy and inexpensive way to make sure your flat roof is winter and holiday ready. Additionally, it will prevent unwanted critters from using the branches as roads onto your roof where they might next or soil your roof with droppings etc.

Check the Flashing:

Flashing is that part of your roof which is designed to keep rain and moisture out. It is installed over joints or other potential weak spots such as around your chimney to prevent water from seeping in. Flashing, which is also called weatherproofing, is extremely important for the health of your foam roof. To make sure you won’t be dealing with any moisture damage in the near future, give your flashing a thorough check-up.

Attic Check:

Check your attic for signs of leaks or roof damage and while you are up there, give the insulation a checkup as well. A properly insulated attic will make your home more energy efficient which is a great benefit no matter if it is summer or winter.

Sometimes, our customers discover that they have unwelcome visitors that have moved into the attic and have caused damage to electric units or the roof itself.

Regular Inspections:

Calling your Phoenix foam roofing contractor for regular roof inspections and maintenance visits is the best thing you can do to ensure your roof is in top shape this holiday season. While you may be able to spot major issues on your own, your roofer is trained to uncover roof problems, you may overlook.

Regular inspections allow you to fix small problems before they become big, costly problems and will save you a bundle down the road.

Hiring a roofing company is also a great idea if you are afraid of heights or feel unsteady climbing ladders. Even flat roofs can be dangerous to walk on. If you doubt your abilities, err on the side of caution and call the expert.
