Do you have a foam roof in Phoenix, AZ? If you do, you already know that your roof has some of the most reliable protection in the roofing industry. These roof systems provide protection from water, and increased UV protection too. While they are regarded as a low maintenance roofing type, it is still important to keep up with these three things!
While every roof should be inspected at least once per year, the most diligent of roof owners will want to check once every time the season changes, as well as any times a storm passes through. These are all times where your roof can get into some trouble, so briefly scanning your roof for issues on a consistent basis can be very helpful for the longevity of your roof.
When you go up on your roof, the first thing you want to do is scan for debris. If you see any leaves, dirt, or nests, they need to be removed or relocated. Things on your roof can cause necessary damage. A soft broom and a quick sweep should keep your roof in great condition. Also keep in mind that furniture does NOT belong on your foam roof, and it will significantly shorten the lifespan of your roofing choice.
Watch For Changes
Once you’ve swept away any debris, look for signs of discoloration. This can indicate there is a corrosive substance affecting your roof. Also keep an eye out for any changes in texture. Your roof should feel similar to an orange peel, so if the texture becomes more obvious or dramatic, you’ll definitely want to give us a call for repairs, before the problem spreads.
