3 Spray Foam Roofing Hacks to Prepare for Monsoon Season

Spray foam roofing is perhaps the best choice for your flat roof, which is common for a commercial or industrial property. Spray foam roofing settles into every nook and cranny of your roof, providing a watertight seal and increased insulation against the blazing, Arizona sun.

To get the most of a spray foam roof, you need to find the right spray foam roofing contractor to install it. You have a lot of options for foam roofers in the Phoenix area, so it’s important that you do your research to find the right contractor. Here are some of the top qualities you should look for in a Phoenix foam roofing contractor:The properties of spray foam roofing also help it to protect your property during a monsoon. It can resist a lot of the damage from flying debris, and it will keep out the water, even when it is pouring down. But you do need to make sure that your spray foam roof is healthy and up to the task before the monsoon season begins. Here are three hacks for your spray foam roofing to prepare for the monsoon season:

3 Spray Foam Roofing Hacks to Prepare for Monsoon Season

Secure the Gutters

Your gutters play an important role in funneling water away from your roof. If they are not working properly, water can be pushed back onto your roof or even under the roofing materials and into your property. Clogged gutters can also cause water to drop straight down and pool around your foundation.

Before the monsoon season begins, you should check your gutters to make sure they are properly secured. Attach any loose or broken fasteners, and adjust any sagging gutters. Clear out any leaf debris, and clear any clogged down spouts. Make sure the entire system is working properly and is not in danger of breaking down.

Inspect the Flashing

Flashing are the materials around vents, chimneys, and other items that intersect with your roof. Flashing helps to connect these items to your roofing materials, while also providing a watertight seal. Unfortunately, flashing is usually the first thing to break down on a roof. Either it gets installed incorrectly, or it becomes loose before other roofing materials start to have problems.

If you have loose or broken flashing, you will end up with major leaks during the monsoon season. You need to inspect your roof for loose or broken flashing before the season starts. You should hire a professional roofer to perform the inspection since a professional has the knowledge and experience to identify problems that you cannot. A roofer can make any needed repairs quickly so that your roof is ready to withstand the onslaught of monsoon season.

Trim Branches

Spray foam roofing can withstand a lot of damage, but a heavy tree branch falling on it can still crack or otherwise damage it. With the heavy winds and rains that the monsoon season brings, getting a lot of branches on your roof is a real possibility. You can protect your roof by trimming back any branches near your property.

While you are tending to the trees around your property, go ahead and look for any other loose items that could become flying hazards during a storm. Either tie down or pull inside display items, equipment, signage, and more. Not only can these items be thrown onto your roof, but they could also be launched through a door or window, causing significant damage to your property.

You may not be able to control the weather, but you can control some of the elements that pose a risk to your property. Before the monsoon season starts, you need to take these steps to protect your spray foam roof and your property. Taking these steps will minimize the risk of damage, as well as how much you will have to pay for repairs. Work with a local roofing contractor to identify other steps you may need to take for your particular property to ensure that it is protected.
