It’s one of those “good news, bad news” situations. The good news is that hail season is almost over in Colorado. Congratulations if you managed to get through it without roofing damage! The bad news is that we’re heading into monsoon season, which affects the entire Southwest. Inspect your roof and make sure it’s ready!
Monsoon season in Colorado and New Mexico
Technically, monsoon season begins in mid-June and lasts until mid-September, but here in Colorado, we’ve been so busy dodging tangerine-sized hail and making sure our roof, windows, siding, and gutter systems stayed intact that we’ve hardly given the impending monsoon season a second thought. However, now that the worst of the hail season is over, it’s time to look ahead to the next roof-damaging weather pattern.
Colorado and New Mexico roof inspections
Monsoon season affects the entire Southwest, from Colorado to New Mexico, bringing heavy winds and moisture. The combination of a massive gust of wind taking a swipe at your roofing system then dumping a lot of water can leave any homeowner feeling anxious. Now would be a great time to contact a reputable roofing contractor to inspect your roofing and gutter systems to make sure your home is armed and ready for monsoon season.
Any leaks or cracks in your roof can result in structural damage that can leave your home unsafe, as well as rot and mold that can threaten your health.
Protect your roof and home from monsoon damage
Take care to remove anything around your home that can cause damage to your roof or other parts of your home. Overhanging branches or trees that are too close to your home should be trimmed or removed entirely.
As always, constant vigilance and regular maintenance go a long way in preventing severe damage.
