Roof Maintenance

Roof Maintenance is more important than you may think!

It’s easy for something small to cause a much larger leak in your roof. Having a qualified pair of eyes accustomed to finding those small issues will prevent it from becoming a bigger and more expensive problem in the future.

Its quicker, easier and more cost effective than waiting for that issue to turn into a leak. Remember, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Roof maintenance can extend the life of your roof.

All types of roofing systems need maintenance.

With periodic high winds and Monsoon rains checking to make sure all aspects of the roof are secure and functioning properly is essential. This will maintain the integrity of the roofing system and prevent leaks from starting.

A roof is designed to be resilient and durable. It can withstand all kinds of Phoenix weather conditions like sun, heat and Monsoons, before it needs to be replaced. However, the roof will only last for a long time if you maintain it well and ensure all problems are addressed quickly. At Dry Plus Roofing, we encourage our customers to get the roof inspected and maintained every year.  

Roof maintenance should be meticulous and thorough because small and unchecked problems can eventually grow to become disasters. Regular maintenance will help keep your roof in good condition, water tight and minimize your repair expenses. Maintenance is tailored to your roof’s specific needs. This usually includes the following:

Accumulated debris can cause a considerable amount of damage to a roof, especially if left unchecked for any length of time. The roof surface should be kept free from leaves and other debris to preserve the integrity of the roof system and keep the roof water tight. Our experts will carefully clean the roof from all debris, remove it and fully clean up the area.

Clogs in the roof drainage system can cause water to accumulate on the roof damaging the roof system and cause interior leaks. Scuppers and drains should be cleaned regularly in order to let water shed properly off the roof. These clogs can happen due to debris build up from leaves, pine needles, granular shedding from shingles or modified roof material. Roof maintenance will ensure that water flows smoothly through the drainage system and is carried off the roof properly. It’s important to clear your roof from debris and have proper water drainage before or after monsoon season.

If your roof is leaking and causing water damage, it may need to be sealed. We will examine all areas of the roof looking for cracks, gaps and voids in the surface and around penetrations. Depending on the roof system we have a variety of professional options such as roof mastic, webbing or roofing caulk to seal around all pipes and flashings so water doesn’t penetrate the roof and seep into the house.
